Harper Can't Shake Ricky!
“I know you,” boomed Trailer Park Boy Ricky as he pointed at a wide-eyed Harper seated in the front row with his wife, Laureen.
“University of Alberta. 1982. Helix.”
Come on Ricky - you know him from somewhere else!
Ok, to avoid a lawsuit, I just glued two headlines together that are unrelated. The story of the microwaved penis does not mention which store the incident happened in, but WTF? I guess I can die in peace knowing that I have now heard of every possible thing that this wonderful world has to offer.
MCKEESPORT McKeesport Police say they are now checking surveillance video to get a picture of the man who allegedly asked a clerk to heat up a severed male body part in a microwave at a local convenience store.
McKeesport Police say a man walked into the store, located on Fifth Avenue, and asked the clerk to use the microwave oven.
After the clerk noticed a strange smell coming from the microwave, she told police she opened the door and discovered human male genitalia wrapped in a paper towel cooking inside.
McKeesport police told KDKA the man fled with the severed body part after she made the discovery. She then called the police.
Lovely, just lovely!
A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his "wife", after he was caught having sex with the animal.
The goat's owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders.
They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi.
"We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together," Mr Alifi said.
Unfortunately, Yahoo said it was unavailable.
"I did some more research, and came up with the following interesting results. All of these were tested in the "test4allah408754873" format to ensure they weren't simply conflicting with an existing user."
Yahoo will not accept yahoo, osama or binladen. But it will accept god, messiah, jesus, jehova, buddah, satan and both priest and pedophile.Check this out! (WARNING: Bad words in original post may trigger sirens if at work!)
Menzies, who pledged to put his French lessons into high gear starting Monday, isn't backing away because of the clarification of his role.
"That's not to say that I'm not going to continue to my French-language training that was quickly accelerated after my swearing-in," he said. "I started that last January and got busy with other critic's roles and let it slip by the wayside, but it's a good impetus to get me going again on French language."
The RCMP is launching an investigation into millions of dollars in contracts at the Canadian Space Agency. A former CSA scientist successfully sued the space agency for falsely appropriating one of his inventions. He submitted a formal complaint to the RCMP last month.
Evidence that at least 7.3 million dollars worth of contracts have never been publicly accounted for was presented during the 2004 Quebec Superior Court hearing for Samir Elomari's 14-million civil suit against the agency.
The Conservatives say the outgoing Liberal government openly practiced trying to move federal departments for political gain with voters.
With Treasury Board Minister John Baird vowing to keep federal jobs here in the capital region, Ottawa-Orleans Tory MP Royal Galipeau says he won't be lobbying departments to move to his riding.
He says if moves take place, they should go to the best suited area, not where a sitting MP requests so that he or she can make political gain.
The Public Service Alliance of Canada is happy to hear Baird is in their corner...
It appears Scary Canadians are prepared to give leeway to the new government as it prepares to sworn into office today. More than half of Canadians are happy to let Stephen Harper run the country, even if he tries to make same-sex marriage illegal or send troops into Iraq, a new poll reveals.
Bring on the scary hidden agenda!
1) Right Hon. Paul Martin (Prime Minister, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, Mr. Dingwall has dedicated most of his life to public service. He has been a member of Parliament. He has been a cabinet minister in the Government of Canada and he has been the head of the Mint. May I just simply say that under his tutelage at the Mint, the Mint has now been returned to profit.
The fact is that I have accepted his resignation, but let me just say that he gave the reasons for his resignation. Among them was that he does not want any distraction at the Mint while he replies to that kind of an allegation.
