Oh Canada

Rick Mercer, I love you. From his rant:

And then it was the government's turn to respond and for this they chose that great parliamentarian John Baird. And did John Baird get up and say why they should survive? No. Instead John Baird stood up in the House of Commons and accused Michael Ignatieff, in front of all of Canada, of owning a condominium in Toronto that, wait for it, has a balcony. So if you're one of the two million Canadians that lives in a condo, with a balcony, be warned John Baird and the Conservative party do not condone your lifestyle.

That totally made me laugh. And really what else is Canadian politics good for these days except for a laugh.

In other news, I'm catching a cold. This is crap. :(

I feel you should have an icon with a scary John Baird face (see here,here, here and here for examples) saying "John Baird does not approve of my lifestyle."

Something like this, perhaps.

OMG, I freaking love your country sometimes. I know someone who owns a condo with a balcony. Does that make me a supporter of the American problem? Where everything can always be traced back to?

I love my country too, even if our current politicians couldn't find their ass with a map at the moment. :(

Hey, did anything come of that fic idea you had from that sweater?

I know that one day *I* will write all the fic ideas I have about Canada. There's one where John and Rodney visit Canada and it's one huge stereotype and John is very very confused. Or another one where Canadian politicians are terminators trying to destroy the world. My most recent one is an original fic idea where there are aliens that need a new planet to live on and scan Canada and think it's empty of intelligent life, only to have to deal with Canadian immigration once they show up.

*hearts my country*
