Sunday Funnies - Canadian Election Edition

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

Ha! Loved that last one.

Nicky: These are kind of limited to a Canadian sphere of interest but funny none the less.
Jaffer said…
I can see Jack is popular in Quebec ... But is that how the bloc advertises ?
Quirkyloon said…
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.


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.
nonamedufus said…
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!
Boom Boom Larew said…
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.
Janna said…
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 - 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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
