Sunday Funnies - Canada Day/Independence Day Edition


My American friends and I are sharing a patriotic long weekend. Yeah, here in Canada, Friday July 1st was Canada Day. In the States, Monday July 4th is Independence Day. In Canada we celebrated our holiday with a visit from the future King, William and his wife Kate. In the States they have their own royal family, Kate plus 8. Ha, ha, got you there. I hope both my Canadian and American friends are enjoying their long weekend and celebrating safely. Cheers.

As a nominal Catholic, I like that last one...of course, the Depends one really made me LOL and I don't mean "Lady of Lourdes" either, because well, that would be weird if I become Lady of Lourdes. Or if I became a lady at all...which I don't want to be, just for the record, but it's weird to think about, especially being from Lourdes.

LOL = Lady of Lourdes? Bahahahahahaha!

Hey, that cartoonist is just vying for a precious spot on a pack of cigarettes coming soon near you! heh heh

Great choice Nomers. As always. You are one of the few reasons I love Sunday morns!

Those are all really good ones. I especially like the hokey pokey.

The Blagojevich one just makes me happy. As a native Chicagoan, I have been rooting for him to get a new "state" room courtesy of the tax payers.

Blagojevich is just one of those guys that give politicians a bad name, don't you think?

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.
