Canadians go to the polls tomorrow. As we headed down to the wire last week there were some great editorial cartoons.

Nicky: These are kind of limited to a Canadian sphere of interest but funny none the less.

I can see Jack is popular in Quebec ... But is that how the bloc advertises ?

Ha! You know what? Politics are universal so all of these made me laugh! I could so easily insert so and so's face here or there.

Ha!

And...who got married?

heh heh

Jaffer: Yeah the Bloc have a pic of Duceppe and the words "Parlons Qc". Go figure. Don't forget to vote!
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: I'm glad they translated well. Who got married? I dunno. We lost power here for two days last week. The upside to that was we couldn't have watched all that monarchist bull crap even if we had wanted to. haha

I think they're gonna have to open up the bars at 10 a.m. for this election.

00dozo: I don't think they have that law anymore where you can't drink until the polls close. Just in case, though, I've been stocking up!

I'm so upset... they won't let me vote for you, Dufus, just because I'm an American. Where is that Canadian spirit of friendship and international relations when you need it? Eh?
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: The only thing I'd run for is dinner when they call my name. But I appreciate the thought.

I like the royal wedding one! :)
nonamedufus said…
Janna: You know something. I think more Canadians watched the royal wedding than will turn out to vote tomorrow! Hmmm...

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…
