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...

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 …
