Rise up brothers and sisters. Gather round and hold my hand as we pray to the Lord above in an effort to rid the world of a terrible injustice against us all. You heard me: "an injustice". Yep, November is "Anti-Injustice month, where couch activists like me at Humor Bloggers Dot actus reus are taking a stand - 'cause Party Palace Rentals repossessed their chairs - against injustice. I have undertaken to play my small part in this crusade. Yes, that's right. Follow along, if I haven't lost you already, as I raise my hand, er, ah voice against the heinous injustice of racism.
The Americans have conquered racism. You rarely hear a disparaging word about African Americans. You rarely hear a word at all other than in a sports context. Thank God for Mexicans - but if they know what's good for them they better hurry up and learn how to play football.
In Canada we've conquered the French. Oops, Freudian slip. I meant we've conquered racism. Descendants of our two founding-nations live in peace and harmony *strains of Koombyah in the background* save of course what goes on between the fans of the Montreal Canadiens and the rest of the country. Maybe the Habs could draft some Mexicans! They can't play any worse.
And yet racism continues to rear it's ugly head...literally. Yes, that's right. People are slighting chia. Say what? Yeah, I said chia, with a capital C and that spells trouble right here in River City. Sorry, wrong injustice. Here take a look at what I mean.
The Chia Pet started life innocently enough, minding it's own business...and then things got nasty.
Ow-chia-wow-wah, the rest I can understand, but just when you thought Obama had thought he had put the worst of his critics behind him...bam...Chia you can believe in!
Actually, now that I've re-read this little post I wonder if I should order a bunch of bags of chia seeds. They might come in handy during chemo!
