Dear Readers.
Leave it to the NDP to propose stupid shit like THIS: Ontario’s NDP wants the province’s government-run liquor stores to suspend sales of Russian vodka due to the international crisis in Ukraine.
New Democrat Cheri DiNovo is expected to table a motion today in response to Russia’s seizure of Crimea.
(We think Cheri has been hitting the vodka herself if she thinks this will do any good!)
WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT: “NASA cuts ties with Russia!”
That’s right folks, U.S. space crews and scientists are no longer allowed to communicate, or be helpful with Russian scientists and astronauts!
Meanwhile: Up in the ISS Space Station, the Americans are now staying in their section of the craft while the Russians are at the other end!
(They are using the module in-between as a no-mans-land!)
The Russians, however, are not being very gracious about all this. They keep blowing farts ……….., and then sending them to the American side with high speed fans!


What an “Asshole of the Day” we have for ya today, folks.
The entire Department of National Defense!

(Unfortunately, that’s a very Canadian thing to do!)

Speaking of money: Just in case you’re interested, Oprah paid Lindsay Lohan two million bucks last summer for a bunch of interviews.
Well ……………………., Lindsay’s broke again!
MEANWHILE, DOWN SOUTH: The Obama administration says Iran’s nomination of a former hostage-taker as its ambassador to the United Nations is “extremely troubling”.
US senators have also balked at Iran’s pick of Hamid Aboutalebi, who was part of a Muslim student group which seized the US embassy in Tehran in 1979.

Senator Ted Cruz says he will introduce legislation to block Iran’s application for a US visa for Mr Aboutalebi.
(Kind of make ya wonder if the Iranian government is trying to be provocative again …………, or just doesn’t know any better!)
A bartender at Hunter’s Ale House in Charlottetown has begun his challenge to break the Guinness World record for longest bartending shift.
Phil Gallant began working a shift at 10 a.m. Wednesday and doesn’t plan to stop until 2 a.m. Sunday. Gallant gets the opportunity because it is East Coast Music Week in Charlottetown. As part of the celebrations normal closing hours for bars are suspended. Hunter’s is one of several that will be open 24 hours a day.
The current bartending record is 111 hours, set by Ruth Brands of Belgium in 2012.

AND WHILE WE’RE DOWN ON THE EAST COAST: A class-action lawsuit involving victims of moose-vehicle crashes in Newfoundland and Labrador boils down to whether the province has negligently failed to manage the moose population, a lawyer for the plaintiffs argued as the case began Wednesday.
Ches Crosbie said the provincial government has known for at least 10 years that moose pose a hazard on the highways but did not decide on a specific policy to reduce that risk.
About 800 accidents or close calls have been recorded annually in recent years. The class-action includes people who were seriously injured since 2001 and several estates of those who have been killed.

There is a town in North Ontario, (no, not the Neil Young one) that managed to get “cock fighting” banned …, so the promoters are now calling it “Chicken Boxing!”
Folks, even though food trucks got more press than the Mayor of Toronto recently, this might help even things out!
