A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

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.

Enter Stephen Harper.
Go read this. Harper's psychology laid "bear".

If Rick Mercer runs for Parliament, I will move to his district in order to vote for him.

Keep posting. I think we in the US need to know what's going on to the north of us.

Buon Giorno, Signor M

This explains everything

Our wonderful Prime Minister (may he rule for ever) is evidently going through the same identity crisis as Master Knut Junior

Peut=estre, Knut Jnr should eat the occasional Seal Pup more often - it might depress the Pup, but food-therapy sure takes the troubled mind's attention away from that most unhappy male=experience - unRequited Love

I am told that NIG is better now that Coors has taken over the local Bass Brewery

Perhaps Maister McBroon needs some more arrests amongst Opposition MPs - even if it might be more profitable to get some of his "Supporter"-MPs sent to the Tower
