Tea & Two Slices: On Voting For The Reptilian Party And Keeping Your Lights On

by Sean Orr | Ignatieff channels Bob Dylan to introduce his election theme. That’s funny because I always think of I’m not there when it comes to Ignatieff. Zing.

Three E’s — economy, ethics and the elderly — could define this election. I guess nobody cares about that other E anymore…

Earth Hour: Why I will leave my lights on. Hmm, because you’re a willfully ignorant, stubborn, pseudo-hardline conservative who thinks that somehow saving electricity is a political statement? Are you’re so insecure about your own anti-environmental doctrine that you feel you have to oppose anything that has to do with conservation? It’s not as if Earth Hour were some huge government program or something. It makes me wonder what this jackass would have said during a London Blitz blackout in 1940 (“If you turn your lights out, the Luftwaffe wins”?). It’s called the common good, you passive-aggressive, knee-jerk reactionary shill.

Cummins confirms bid for B.C. Conservative leadership. I’m not one to subscribe to conspiracy but god damn if that dude doesn’t look like a reptilian. Note, however, that this does not in any way alter or dissuade me from my complete endorsement of this candidate to be the next premier of BC…

Because, you know, our current one is the same as our last one. New look, same taste: Christy Crunch. I’m not sure how I feel about this because I love cereal (I would totally eat both).

Top 10 most prosperous cities. “The Top 10 most prosperous cities in the world, according to the Toronto Board of Trade’s annual measure of prosperity among world cities. Vancouver, unfortunately, did not make the cut”. Ha ha, that’s okay though, as long as we don’t have to cheer for the Leafs.

Blue Eagle Demolition. Past Tense asks, “Is Pantages next?”
