Sunday Funnies

Well, the H1N1 hysteria continued unabated in Canada last week, fed by stories that Canadian professional sports teams had jumped the queue and gotten their vaccinations ahead of so-called "at-risk" Canadians, not to mention the general public.

Oh, yeah, and in case anyone missed it, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla undertook a Royal Tour across the country.

I'm still waiting for people to start calling H1N1 Hiney. Those number ones could easily pass for capital i's.

I like the sound of it too. The Hiney Flu. And it's "spot-on" in the description.

Ha!

Quirks: Yeah, some have said she looks like the south end hiney of a north-bound horse. Oh, you're talking about the H1N1 cartoons?

Yeah. Some of the same stories are circulating in the states. One of the latest is that federal inmates in some corrections facilities will be getting their doses before sick citizens in the same towns can have a dose.

I loved the Prince Charles and Camilla cartoon. Question, what do they call Camilla? Is she the Princess of Wales II? That has always confused me.

Don: Hey, we're discussing the pros and cons of H1N1 vaccinations - pro-athletes and con-victs!

Me-Me: Some call her a horse, but officially she's the Duchess of Cornwall.

you know, you wouldn;t even know Charles adn Camilla have been in Canada (other than through blogs) as no one is covering it on the major news here. That's ok though. I think they are rather ghastly royals anyway! Hardly Royal to me but then since the Queen, few have been.

...mmm...: Don't get me started on the uselessness of the Royals

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 …
