Avid Fans: Hey--We Thought You Weren't Posting!
And we thought you were going to fix the sidebar, and add some links, and get the plumbing fixed, and make the trains run on time ...
To which I can only say: Well I'm adopting Harper-style blogging. This isn't a post--it's an entry, see? Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket.
Gosh, I'm not bad at this. I could become leader of the Tories in a heartbeat, if I didn't feel I'd prefer catching a chronic social disease.
So with that settled, let me introduce you to this morning's coffee-all-over-my-keyboard moment, courstesy of Rick Mercer and the Globe and Mail:
Not long after Stephen Harper took office as Canada's 22nd prime minister, a polar bear was born at the Berlin Zoo. Known as Knut, the cub was summarily rejected by his mother and so was nursed by human beings. Now, two years later, animal psychologists admit that he has become so addicted to human laughter and applause that, the instant those things disappear, he becomes desolate and cries for attention. This has led to irrational behaviour never before seen in a polar bear. Experts fear that, without constant applause, Knut could lose the will to live.Go read this. Harper's psychology laid "bear".
Enter Stephen Harper.
If Rick Mercer runs for Parliament, I will move to his district in order to vote for him.
