“He has views on just about anything. If you are ever giving a dinner party — this is the guy you want to invite.”
Outraged Torontonians banded together on Saturday night to descend on a “racist party in full swing” at a Parkdale bar: A “cowboys and Indians” gathering complete with war paint and faux headdresses. The party of 20 people, dressed in cowboy hats, headdresses and plastic tomahawks, gathered at Parkdale’s The Rhino Restaurant and Bar on Saturday night, reportedly to commemorate a double birthday. Another patron spotted the party and sent out an alert on Twitter: “There are people actually dressed as cowboys and Indians. Face paint and feathers.” As the message gained ground on the Twitterverse, users bombarded the Rhino’s Twitter feed with accusations of racism and threats of boycott.
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s “Don’t Honk” signs are coming down, but it’s still against the law to blow a car horn unnecessarily.
The city Department of Transportation says all the signs will be removed by the end of the year.
According to The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/117Avza ), city officials say the decision is part of an effort to de-clutter the streets of signs that generally go ignored.
(Unnecessary honking carries a $350 fine but is rarely enforced.)
Tell ya one thing bunky, here in London they are honk NUTS. Anywhere people are stopped for a red light there is some idiot honking for one reason or the other. We could use that fine here…………, might shut  few people up!
TORONTO – Canadian immigration officials have denied U.S. actor Randy Quaid’s request for permanent resident status in Canada. A Canadian government official confirmed late Saturday that Quaid`s request for permanent status has been denied. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Quaid can appeal the decision to the federal court. U.S. officials last year refused to seek extradition of the actor and his wife from Canada to face felony vandalism charges in Santa Barbara, California, but authorities in the coastal town say they’ll still have the couple arrested if they return to the states. Quaid has sought to stay in Canada, claiming he was being hunted by “Hollywood star-whackers” who had killed his friends David Carradine and Heath Ledger. SO! Quaid remains holed up in Vancouver, and the “whackers” lie and wait!
A woman is being sued by her husband for allegedly trying to kill him by putting poison in her genitals and then asking him to perform oral sex. The Brazilian wife is accused of planting a toxic substance on her genitals before luring her husband to bed. Reports in the South American country suggest he was ready and willing, and only escaped death because he noticed a strange smell. The curious husband then took his wife to hospital in Sao Jose do Rito Preto to find out the cause of the unusual odour. The alleged attempt on his life was exposed when tests on his wife discovered traces of a poisonous substance down below.
And finally, seems Montreal has a new amusement ride!
