Winner of the stupid headline prize for today:
"Typhoon's devastation spares no one - not even children"
Um... Children should miraculously start floating in the air when disaster strikes? Who the hell wrote that line?
Winner of the D'oh!!!* prize of the day:
Stephen Harper, our "beloved" PM, for saying that Canada has no history of colonialism**.
First nation leaders are understandably rather pissed off at the comment.
And in the What-The-Fuck-Is-Wrong-With-These-People file...
One of our offices has no internet today. Bell Canada cut off their service because they weren't paying their bills, which stopped coming a couple of months ago.
Our question: Why did they stop coming?
Bell's answer: Because we weren't notified about your move..
For the record, the office moved 2 years ago, and they managed to send the bills for both phone and internet service for all that time. To the new address...
* aka the open-mouth-insert-foot prize
** no doubt he will argue that he meant that Canadians per se didn't colonize Canada. It's the brits' and frogs' fault. Won't fly you moron.
