Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Mid-Week Mayhem # 77



Well boys and girls, unless ya live on a farm, Canada Post will be phasing out regular urban home delivery while also raising the cost of stamps.
Over the next five years, door-to-door service for urban customers will be converted to a community mailbox delivery model.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL, KIDS!
Stamps bought individually,  will rise to $1 as of March 31, 2014.

The guy that runs McDonalds makes as much money by noon on a Monday, as one of the front line workers makes all year!!!!!!!!!!!!

The chief executives of McDonald's and Starbucks earn more than $9,200 an hour, which is at least 1,000 times the hourly wages of their sales associates!

Here's another example of government ineptitude.............., fortunately this one worked in our favour and we now have 1000 more doctors in this country!

OTTAWA — A decision to turn a blind eye to processing errors that allowed more than 500 foreign-trained medical doctors to immigrate to Canada even though they didn’t necessarily meet the criteria is raising questions about fairness.

Documents obtained by Vancouver lawyer and immigration policy analyst Richard Kurland through access to information laws indicate visa officers in Warsaw processed about 1,000 applications from doctors during a “blitz” to reduce backlogs nearly two years ago only to realize they’d done so using out-of-date guidelines.

(Well, as long as these guidelines weren't from 1892......, we don't see a problem!)

Why don't they do stuff like this with MY bank account?

A tired bank employee dozed off on his keyboard and accidentally transformed a minor transfer into one of 222 million bucks!

The man was going to transfer just $62.40 to a pensioner's bank account, but "fell asleep for an instant, while pushing onto the number 2 key on the keyboard", upgrading it to a $222,222,222.22  operation.

(The bank discovered the mistake and corrected it!)

Now a quick warning to any gay men who visit New Glasgow, Nova Scotia..............., don't think, or act, like you're back in Toronto!

It's been two months since Jones was stabbed in the back and had his throat slashed after leaving that New Glasgow, N.S., bar on Oct. 12. In his first interview speaking about the attack, Jones says he is convinced he was targeted because he is one of the only openly gay men in town.

"I believe it was because I was gay, I am gay," he told CBC News.

The attack made headlines across Canada, launched an outpouring of support for Jones, and prompted a campaign encouraging people to speak up against homophobia.

Jones is now paralyzed and uses a wheelchair. But he is thankful for the support, touched by the love he feels, and is especially appreciative of how the community has reacted.

 AND, speaking of "Assholes" and bigots ......, and plain jerks who don't know enough not to display their ignorance and total lack of character, the Perspective Research Department ran across this doctored photo of a Salvation Army Christmas display today!


 THIS, by the way, came from somewhere in Toronto, which makes it even worse!

Folks, I wasn't going to show you this article because some little voice in my head kept saying that we shouldn't sink to the level of some rag like the National Enquirer, or News of the World, or whatever!

But then reason took over, and I realized we had already sunk to that level years ago!

A New Jersey man is apparently is a very sound sleeper, or has a very high tolerance for pain. Police in Trenton say the 42-year-old awoke after a 10-hour slumber with a pain in his back --- which turned out to be a five-inch knife stuck in his back.
After waking up, the unnamed victim couldn't figure out what was causing his backache. So, he asked his brother to take a look to see if he could find anything wrong. According to Trenton police Lt. Mark Kieffer, that's when the brother informed him of his unusual condition. “His brother said he had a knife blade protruding from his back," said Kieffer.
According to NJ.com, the victim claims he had been drinking that night and stepped out onto his porch to have a cigarette.

That's when another man approached the victim to ask him for a light. When the victim refused, a fistfight broke out between the two men. That's when the unnamed suspect reportedly stabbed the victim in the back … without the victim realizing it. 
Police have been unable to track down the attacker, and say the stabbing victim has not been cooperating in their investigation.
NJ.com reports the man is expected to survive his injuries.

Talk about sinking to new lows ..............,, get a load of THIS!

Sharon Osbourne Lied About Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery: "I Made It Up," She Tells Howard Stern!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, that's an "excruciating" admission from Sharon Osbourne.
 
The former reality star confessed to Howard Stern on Sirius XM radio on Wednesday, Dec. 11 that she completely fabricated the story about getting vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

The 61-year-old Talk co-host told Stern that she lied to fans about undergoing the painful procedure, after appearing alongside Colin Farrell on the Graham Norton Show last month.

Osbourne told Norton during the Nov. 29 interview that no procedure was more painful than "having my vagina tightened." She descriptively continued, "Oh, it was just excruciating."

NOT SO FOLKS!  It was far more excruciating listening to her describing her sloppy cunt!

We have another "Asshole of the day" folks! (But he is also our "Winner of the Day" for having the guts to pulls this off!)

JOHANNESBURG - A man who appeared to provide sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela's memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Wednesday.

The unidentified man seen around the world on television next to leaders including United States President Barack Obama "was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for," Bruno Druchen, the federation's national director, told The Associated Press.

Four sign language experts, including Druchen, said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages and could not have been signing in any other known sign language because there was no structure to his arm and hand movements.

Ingrid Parkin, principal of the St. Vincent School for the Deaf in Johannesburg, said she's received complaints from the deaf community from Canada to China about the man on stage and that his movements look "like he's signing gibberish."

"This man himself knows he cannot sign and he had the guts to stand on an international stage and do that," Parkin said.

(This reminds me of a Saturday Night Live skit from a few years ago!)
