Fun With Pic and Pain

While reluctant at first, the Prime Minister was warming up to these belly dance classes his wife had signed him up for

The Prime Minister of Canada, and his office, are known to control the media. The PM does a grave injustice to the Canadian people when he shuns news conferences, avoids reporters and photographers, issues tightly-scripted statements and shares "official" photos with media outlets that only show him in the best light.

Guess what? nonamedufus has found a couple of unofficial photos and as a public service has captioned them for your edification and amusement and, as the rest of the bloggers at Humor Blubbers Not Calm are doing this month, to right one of the many injustices in our society today. So while being constantly subjected to staged events and pics from the Prime Minister's Office is a pain, today turnabout is fair play...

Mario "Jack Knife Lopez and Stephen Harper share an extra awkward moment.

Charles, just take the hat and blankets and go home. It worked for the Indians.

And then Diana told me, 'Pshaw, it's only this big...'

And then Camilla told me, 'Pshaw, it's really this big...'

Prime Minister, I'm afraid he sunk your battleship

Hmm, that could be our new campaign slogan

Should five per cent appear too small, be thankful I don't take it all, 'cause I'm the taxman

I wished I looked so good in all my "unofficial" pictures.

I usually have my mouth opened wide, my face scrunched up, a finger possibly picking my nose.

But at least I have no clown pictures.

Now THAT would be bad!

Wow, sounds like you have a honky version of Barack O'boy... Are we to believe Camilla or Diana on the size thing? I'll go with Camilla because she can fight back.
My verification not too good today: "nonsord"

Well done, Dufus. I seem to have a better understanding, a light bulb moment, when there are pictures to illustrate the point.

nonamedufus said…
Quirks: I look forward to seeing those pics!
nonamedufus said…
Don: I believe Diana. I think Camilla's trying to reshape his image, as it were.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: A bit of a different approach today.

Marley: Oh, that's hilarious! Thanks.

"I'm afraid he sunk your battleship . . . " Riotous!

DK: Glad you liked it.
Funny stuff, NoName. And I can't help but wonder if Charles still wants to live in Camilla's pants. One of the greatest quotes of all time from politics.

Mike: In her pants? He wanted to be her tampon! What a twit.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
