There are pictures making the internet rounds these days in Canada that are at the centre of somewhat of a controversy. And, no I'm not talking about those pics of Brett Favre's junk. No, these are moving pictures.
This summer Canada hosted the G20 in *spits* Toronto. (You have to understand that here in Canada everybody's down on *spits* Toronto. They hate it how *spits* Toronto sees itself as not just the centre of the country but the centre of the friggin' universe.) Now the G20 is itself a lightening bolt of controversy for the amount of taxpayer's money spent on the event, to say nothing of the bill turned in to handle security costs alone of $1 billion.
These gatherings of world leaders have long ceased to attract the world's attention but do succeed in attracting every protesting apparatchik moron with a cause. Anti-war activists, unions, artists, environmentalists, anti-capitalists, students, pro-three-legged dog supporters - you name it, they were there.
The video I'm talking about has gone viral and the cop at the centre of this short-film feature is suing You Tube and various commenters.
The issue began when tough talking Toronto Police Constable Adam Josephs confronted the bubble-blowing latter-day flower child and university student Courtney Wilkens.
It'll be a day neither of them will soon forget thanks to some phone camera wielding You Tube ya-hoo.
Courtney was later quoted as saying, "It isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." Gosh, I think she might have been the illegitimate love-child of Joan Baez and Timothy Leary.
But if Courtney is just a little left of Mahatma Gandhi, Officer Josephs, who since the incident has earned the nickname Officer Bubbles, might be a tad to the right of Attila the Hun.
This is what Canadians were spending $1 billion on. It's a good thing to know we're safe from soap bubbles. Gee, it's tough out there on the streets of *spits* Toronto...
