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.

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!
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?

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...

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
