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.

so nits?

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.
nonamedufus said…
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 - 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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
