At the risk of thread-creep, I learned a couple of verses to Donkey Riding from Stan's singing, and both are NE North America-related, Mirimichi and Quebec being right around the corner from each other, nautically:

Was ye ever in Quebec, launching timber on the deck, where you break your bleeding neck, riding on a donkey?

Was ye ever in Mirimichi, where ye ties up to a tree, and the skeeters do bite we, riding...?

So Stan did seem to have a proclivity for the word/place.
