by Sean Orr | Free Canada, Trade Harper: Canada’s wine industry may face restrictions if leaked EU trade deal is accurate. Are you sure you want to wake the beast within wine drinkers? Best comment: “Who cares a fiddlers foot about the wind industry” (sic).

This hurts my noodle: ‘Pastafarian’ fights to wear colander in B.C. driver’s licence photo. For what it’s worth, I didn’t even have to strain myself to think of a pun for this one.

Creator of SkyTrain massacre video game defends work. Well, at least he’s not the one conflating realities: “It takes place in an actual Vancouver Skytrain…” Nope. No it doesn’t. For the record, it takes place on a computer. “Is this game going to make any money?” Yeah, because that’s what really matters. “Scott joins us today from the Main Street Skytrain Station. Scott, do you see anyone – anyone at all – there today, on any sort of rampage?” “No Mike, but time can only tell…”

TransLink considers changing name of Evergreen Line. Hmm, they must have seen Scout’s Nevergreen Line entry.

Old white dude writes anti-pot editorial: Legalizing dope would cost everybody. “When dope is legalized in Canada, will that mean our co-workers can get stoned on the job every day, dumping more work on the rest of us?” Hey look, just because you’re legally allowed to get drunk and pen ridiculous opinion pieces doesn’t mean the rest of us are as irresponsible as you are. Also, taxes.
