How Do You Blog About the End of the World?
Maybe it was the cold wind blowing across the lake. Or the sight of the empty rink. Or the guy in the wheelchair. But I think I finally realized how much trouble we're in.The signs of the Greatest Depression are everywhere.
Factories are closing down. Small businesses are struggling to survive. Pensions are crumbling. You don't dare walk anywhere near the financial district...in case a broker lands on you. And now the CLINCHER. A friend of mine came back from Disney World and told me the place was half empty.
Can you believe THAT?
But how do you blog about the end of the world as we know it? I almost give up.
Every time I think I've found a new and brilliant approach it turns out to be....um....not so brilliant.
Like this soccer throw-in..
Ouch. I bet that was painful.
Just like it is living in Stephen Harper's Con Canada.
Gawd. How I wish we could do to the Cons what the Democrats are doing to the Republicans.
Mmmmm.....hmmmmmm.....HEE HAAAAAW !!!!!!!
But of course in Canada, WE are the ones getting screwed.
Screwed by the Cons, screwed by our own stupidity, screwed by cruel fate.
FUUUUUUUUUCK !!!!!!! How come that sucker sailed over Saskatchewan but DIDN'T hit Small Dead Chihuahuas? You know how she's always going on about not waiting for the asteroid? Wouldn't that have been awful? I mean PERFECT.
Then I saw this list.
And for a while it really boosted my spirits. It was just what the doctor ordered...along with lots of alcohol.
But then I thought nah. Who needs that aggro shite? My parole officer says it's bad for me. And Canada these days is grey and bland and humourless and depressing enough... who wants to spend Christmas in prison? I need a more POSITIVE message.
NOW we're talking. C'mon Canada repeat after me: It just keeps getting BETTER.
Being reduced to grinding poverty because Harper's Cons blew the rainy day surplus.... trying to buy votes..... ISN'T the End of the World.
Who needs turkey when we can have PIGEON?
And of course, and above all, and never forget it, Stephen Harper's bestial and incompetent Cons are the government we DESERVE.
Have a great weekend everyone !!!
While you still can...
