A shocking CBC plot twist

Next week on Being Erica, it turns out that the lead character on a CBC television series turns out to be...

... a dyke.

If they do it on Wild Roses I think I shall scream. There are something like 18 faggots in all of Alberta and it seems a little freaky they keep getting on television.

So I can escape the world economic climate by getting naked?

Here's the Huffington Post's news article on the recession: What to do if you get laid off.

Her new book, Rebound: A Proven Plan for Starting Over After Job Loss (FT Press) is intended for those who are nervous about their job security or find themselves on the unemployment line.

And here's another Huffington Post page where the link to the story appears:

Er, not quite the same thing...


Post #1200, Baby!

Can you believe it? Can you believe it? Now reaching post numbered one thousand and two hundred.

I was going to do a half-assed summary of the last 100 posts, but we'll put that off to a much rounder number like 1,300. In the meanwhile, check out this new revelation:

Its been much publicized that Google Maps featured transit guides in Edmonton now. That's nothing: they have now expanded their search features. It used to be if you typed in something common, like "furniture in edmonton" you would get A-J entries listed on the map. Click the "next" and A-J would change to 10 new entries.

Not anymore.

It looks much as before. But click to view the larger map, and simultaneously see every Timmy's in Edmonton!


"Fifteen degrees down angle on the bow planes, come right 240. Move it!"

French and British nuclear-missile submarines collided earlier this month while on routine patrol in the Atlantic, the countries’ militaries said. No one was injured.
Information is sketchy so far, but we can surmise that the British sub was probably moving towards the battle...


Vancouver 2010

The big Canadian news story last week revolved around the 1 year... countdown? Anyways, the 2010 Winter Olympics will be ongoing by this time next year. I've already written on the topic:

My opinion of the logo is that it looks like somebody took a pane of glass, dropped it, painted an Olympic logo on one of the shards, started to sweep it up, and then just gave up.

Contrast to the plan I had for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic logo:

I picture a homeless guy getting swept under a rug.
And an Alberta taxpayer footing the bill for it.

Now with the countdown underway, I have one small insight about the Games due to start in Vancouver...

Is it really fair to give two Olympics in a row to China?


Our Messiah can do no wrong

Watch as President Monkey's own voters show that they know a whole lot about the jokes Tina Fey makes on Saturday Night Live but don't know jack shit about the man they put in charge of their country. Bill Ayers? House Majority Leader? They don't mention that on the Jon Stewart show!

Update, 9:23 pm: I forgot to mention that this video is a h/t to David Icke. Yes, that's right, the guy who's convinced that the Queen of Canada and George W. Bush are actually space lizards working for the evil Jews. And even he isn't drinking Obama-brand Kool AidTM!

N.L. man charged with assaulting waiter after complaint of 'too meaty' steak

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — A Newfoundland diner is in trouble for apparently liking his steak with plenty of marble.

A 58-year-old man is facing an assault charge in St. John's after he allegedly slugged his waiter for serving a steak that was "too meaty." The incident occurred Thursday night at a downtown restaurant.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary alleges the man pushed the waiter and punched him in the face on his way out of the restaurant.

He has been released from custody and will appear in provincial court at a later date.
Now I know that in Newfoundland a "steak" is actually fried bologna (no, really!) but surely there's not even a Newfie on this planet dumb enough to be shocked and surprised that his steak has meat on it. I like the "maybe he likes it marbled" argument that the CP writer decides to toss out there: does a 56 year old Newfie who beats up waiters really sound like a conoissoir of fine dining?
