Dear Readers:
Following her dismissal for admitting she used the term “niggar” years ago when she was a young woman, Paul Deen showed a lot more class than the Food Network did for firing her!
Following the Food Network’s announcement on Friday that they have chosen not to renew Paula Deen’s contract in the wake of her racial slur revelation, the chef issued a statement thanking the network for 11 “great years.”
“I have had the pleasure of being allowed into so many homes across the country and meeting people who have shared with me the most touching and personal stories,” Paula said in a statement to CNN Friday evening.
“This would not have been possible without the Food Network.”

Adding, “Thank you again. Love and best dishes to all of y’all.”

A day after announcing that it’s dropping Deen from its roster of celebrity cooks, the cable network was served heaping portions of Southern fried outrage by her fans.
1371996705_paula-deen-gAngry messages piled up Saturday on the network’s Facebook page, with many Deen fans threating to change the channel for good. “So good-bye Food Network,” one viewer wrote. “I hope you fold like an accordion!!!”
The decision to drop Deen, whose daytime shows have been a Food Network fixture since 2002, came two days after disclosure of a recent court deposition in which Deen was asked under oath if she had ever used the N-word. “Yes, of course,” 66-year-old Deen said, though she added, “Although it’s been a very long time.”
Although Deen has apologized in two video messages (one being barely coherent) and in statements, her deal with QVC — which markets and sells her cookware products — may also be ending soon.
A rep for QVC tells TMZ that they have “concerns [over] the unfortunate Paula Deen situation … Please know that QVC does not tolerate discriminatory behavior.”

The rep added to the site, “We are closely monitoring these events and we are reviewing our business relationship with Ms. Deen. In the meantime, we have no immediate plans to have her appear on QVC.”
In light of the scandal, in which the 66-year-old admitted under oath in a deposition to using racial slurs — including the N-word — in the past, some fans of the cook have rallied around her.
Over 29,000 people have liked the Facebook page, “Support Paula Deen,” that is asking for her Food Network contract to be renewed.
“Let’s Get Things Back Into Perspective Here!” What is Justin Trudeau doing accepting speaking fees in the first place while he is on the public purse as a sitting M.P.?
Plus, why are the heads of the charities that paid him all high ranking Liberals?
With the amount of corruption in Quebec, can you imagine what would happen if they did separate?
(They would be reduced to a “banana state republic” within six months!!!!!!!)
As an example of just how crazy things are getting there:
Quebec language cops object to yogurt shop’s spoons
By Giuseppe Valiante, QMI Agency
MONTREAL — David Lipper said he had no idea his two Menchies Frozen Yogurt franchises in the Montreal area were carrying potential contraband.
Lipper said he “was so paranoid to ensure everything in the store was in French” that he missed a pivotal item: the yogurt spoons.
Lipper said an inspector told him he violated the province’s language laws and the oversight will cost his head office at least $30,000.

With Toronto Pride Week festivities under way, Mayor Rob Ford has stated once again that he will NOT be taking part in the “Pride Parade” even though organizers have expressed a desire to tone down the displays of nudity and vulgarity.
One option being considered is the implementation of a dress code, or even a “uniform” to make the trip down Yonge St. more family friendly!

News from Calgary that the Zoo is also under water!
This raised concern over the well being of the monkeys and apes since man’s nearest relatives are not overly fond of water. (Except to drink!)
When asked what the great apes were doing during the flood, one of the handlers said: “The Backstroke!”
With floods all the way from Calgary to Winnipeg, Environment Canada is issuing a warning that the entire provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are in danger of sinking!
As floodwater from Alberta make its way in to the Saskatchewan River system, the province is bracing for its highest influx of water since the early 1900s.
Government officials gave an update on what to expect during a flood call with media on Saturday.
The levels on the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers are expected to increase between two and three metres in the next few days, which, the province said, will cause severe flooding.
Seems all the water flowing down from the mountains by Calgary are quickly spreading across the flat surface of the prairies and are not expected to stop until they hit the highlands of the Canadian Shield in Ontario!
(If you don’t believe me, Google it ……………….., you will find out that at one time this area was a vast inland sea! And it could happen again!)
Meanwhile, reports just in claim some of the smaller suburbs to the south of Calgary have floated away in the past few hours and nobody seems to know where they are.
Search and rescue crews are looking downstream to see if they can spot any of the errant enclaves!
