Cheers to global participation! We can all pitch in and all it takes is logic and rational thought :)

Feel the Zen of relaxation!

Happy Caturday everyone!

Cheers to cheers; go find some!

It's nearly that time again:

Show your support:

Last chance to pledge up for the hour. It's just a few hours away now that the world expects you to knock-off the computer, turn out the lights and kick back to some people powered entertainment. If you're the type who still thinks, "EarthHour isn't big enough to make any impact..." Check out this video from HongKong:
Cheers to all the Canadians showing their support with us tonight. Just's a Saturday... Unplug the TV, grab a beer and some friends, and enjoy some old fashioned fun!


Making you feel old!...of the day

It's a Vulcan salute to Leonard Nimoy who turns 80 today. It's been a long time since his days on StarTrek ended in 1969. Born  March 26, 1931, Nimoy is an American actor, film director, poet, musician and photographer. His roles are vast and his abilities seem limitless. If you aren't a Trekkie and you don't love his voice-overs on the The Simpsons, I bet there's still an abundance of things you might like about this guy. 

Cheers to men who live a dozen lives before they pass!

The issue with "Live" television...

Well it's not nearly as bad as most of what we're used to seeing on the nightly newses. We have all gotten used to listening to the Bill O'Reillys and the Glen Becks of the word so nonsensical remarks on live TV are so 2009... but Canada has it's own flavour. Recently a reporter for Global said some incomprehensible things on-air during a live broadcast. Now I give him credit for not just spewing lies and nonsense like the aforementioned, his issues were strictly the results of medical problems.

Watching the video you'd almost expect this to be an incredible case of stage fright, but reporter Mark McAllister claims this is the result of a medical condition. He became very disoriented and couldn't get out a clear sentence. According to the Star "Paramedics were immediately called to the scene", McAllister was "fully checked out" and planed to "pursue this matter with his doctor".

The Toronto Star reported:
"A Global News Toronto reporter is feeling better after letting loose a stream of Serene Branson-esque gibberish on air Monday night.
During a segment on strife in Libya, cameras turned to reporter Mark McAllister who began speaking about defence minister Peter MacKay. But in videos of the episode posted on the Internet, McAllister can be seen quickly losing his way and falling into a stream of garbled sentences."

According to McAllister's Twitter, he is feeling much better and should be back in action without issue ASAP.

Cheers to Mark McAllister, we wish him the very best and we hope he's doing well. He should be back on the air shortly. 


In case you missed it... of the day!

I'm still trying to decide whether this makes Harper less hip, or Nickleback less cool...
It's budget time and it seems Harper is quite concerned about being frugal; Just the other day he was photographed getting his nickleback... (Sorry, I guess the previous post about puns wasn't enough for a day.)

It is indeed time for the leaders of Canada to bicker about money with the unveiling of the budget tomorrow. It seems that Canada is bracing once again for an election as the Liberals announce they no longer trust the Tories! You might be wondering then, trust? Is that the issue here? I thought we were going to the election based on not supporting the proposed budget. Well, not exactly:

The Liberals had initially intended to vote down the budget once it was released, but this left the NDP open for the block. (The block, not to confused with the Bloc... to whom I will give the service of not writing my opinions about.) You see the Conservative minority that is in power today is hanging on by a thread and they really only need one party to get behind them. So when the Liberals started talking election, the Conservatives started rewriting an NDP friendly copy of next year's budget. This would in turn buy them the votes they needed to stop the annoyance of heading to election and potentially losing some seats.

The Liberals, however have decided that it's more than just money that's getting to them. Finally they have stood up and decided that a government, the "Harper Government", should have the right to constantly slap Canadians in the face. By this we mean of course the perpetual Conservative slip-ups that seem to be building a case for the opposition.

Harper is known for throwing governmental (yeh he def. puts the mental in governmental) tantrums whenever he is backed into a corner. A few years ago he supported a coalition government (his party is actually made from a coalition!) and yet when the NDP and the Libs. suggested just such a thing Harper pulled the plug on Parliament and closed the house! In later months his party has been the center of countless mini scandals and even recently a member of Harper's crack-team decided it was fair-game to lie to the whole house. Lying to Canadians and trying to cover it up (Bev Oda for the win?). All of these add up to a Liberal government proposing a plug-pulling-party of their own. They suggest it's time to set everything straight and let Canadians voice their opinions at the polls.

I say, let's do it. Let's let the Conservatives know just how much Canadians are willing to accept before enough is enough!

Cheers to democracy! Let's hope the parties get exactly what they deserve... 

Just so Punny!

If you guys aren't already aware of my incredible fancy for puns, then you're new here so let me show you around. Up there is the banner, the other pages... on the side is some gibberish that no one actually reads...oh and just above this text is an obsessive collection of ridiculously funny puns!

Cheers to how much I enjoy these...hope you do to!


We've all see the mini paragraph with the misspelled words. You might have gotten it as an email and you may have been blown away at your ability to read the words despite their peculiar arrangement... 

"Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.

So it's no surprise that someone took the idea too far.

Introducing Wikipeetia!

That's right, an entire Wikipedia style encyclopedia that is readable even with it's bizarre spelling!

Cheers to people with too much time on their hands!

Existential Waldo makes me feel old!

Cheers to the existential crisis we all face... can we all just revert to the cartoons and be kids again?

Pseudo joke... of the day!

So a horse walks into a bar...
Cheers to pseudo-comedy, it's ironically funny!
