Sunday Funnies

It was the biggest news story of the week, last week, creating international headlines. Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel prize for peace. Opinion was divided. As were the political cartoonists...





Canada's Prime Minister created headlines last week, too. A public opinion poll showed Stephen Harper's Conservatives would form a majority government if an election were called. Michael Ignatieff''s Liberals are sinking into a deep dark hole according to the poll as the Grits continued their infighting and chasing their own tails. Harper's so relaxed he put in a surprise appearance with Yo Yo Ma and the National Arts Centre Symphony Orchestra... and of course political cartoonists just ate it up...

Every one of the editorial cartoons about Obama's "prize" is spot on! What a farce!
Face it, if Al Gore won it, it has to be meaningless.

Ha! Great Sunday funnies Noname. The Obama-worship has gone way overboard!

And as for your Canadian funnies?

"The 'Gritish' are coming!"

Ha! Sorry for my lame attempt at humor, but I can be sorta lame (most) of the time.

Don: I think the overall reaction was largely bewilderment.

Quirks: The Grit(ish) are no where near coming. They're tripping over their own shoe laces, believe me. If they can't run their own party they'll never run the country.

surveygirl: That's a Canadian cartoonist in the Globe and Mail. I liked that one too.

Damn, I was hoping that Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize would go unnoticed. Bleh!

Ha! Some good cartoons for sure. The piano one especially :-)

RG: Not a bad collection, eh?

Me-Me: It seems to have generated a wee bit of attention.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
