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!

"Borat" our Winner of the day!

Sacha Baron Cohen (L) and his wife Isla Fisher (R) are donating $1 million (900,000 euros) to help Syrian refugees, the charities receiving the money have said (AFP Photo/)We have a well deserved "Winner of the Day" for ya folks:  - British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife are donating $1 million (900,000 euros) to help Syrian refugees, the charities receiving the money announced Sunday.

The "Borat" star and actress wife Isla Fisher are giving $500,000 to Save the Children to pay for measles vaccinations for children in northern Syria.

They are also donating the same amount to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to help refugees in Syria and neighbouring countries, particularly women and children, with health care, shelter and sanitation.

(We should also point out that Mr. Cohen and his wife are Jewish, while most of the refugees are Muslim!!!)

Unfortunately, we have an "Asshole of the Day": as well, kids!

A Canadian resident has finished an incredible journey -- John Beeden has rowed by himself across the Pacific Ocean.

It took the Ontario resident 209 days to make the crossing in his six metre boat "Socks II."

Beeden's website says the 53-year-old is the first person to complete the 11,296 kilometre crossing from San Francisco to Cairns, Australia. (What makes this effort even more ridiculous is that airline tickets from the States to Australia are now going for well under a thousand bucks!)

Now here's a headline that is rather redundant: "Man has serious injuries after being shot by Edmonton police!"

I don't really get the connection folks, but apparently that makes perfect sense to the Donald!

William Guest, a member of Gladys Knight and the Pips, has died. He was 74. (Guest's sister-in-law, Dhyana Ziegler, said he died Thursday in Detroit of congestive heart failure.)
DN-SC-82-07155.jpgGuest performed background vocals on hits such as I Heard It Through the Grapevine, You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me, Neither one of Us,  and Midnight Train to Georgia
"My heart is broken, but I know his legacy will live on," said Guest's daughter, Monique Guest, in a statement. (Gladys Knight and the Pips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the Apollo Hall of Fame in 2006.)

NOW THAT TWO OF THE MEMBERS ARE DEAD, THE GROUP IS BEING RE-LABELED AS "GLADYS KNIGHT AND THE PIP!"

 I just got a new 2016 calendar from the Alzheimer's Society in the mail today, and you can really tell these people are on top of their game!

P.S. the official flower of the Alzheimer's Society is ............., are ya ready? 

"The forget me not!"

(I'm not kidding folks!)

BERLIN (AP) — Police in Germany say a man has died after he and two others blew up a condom machine and he was hit in the head by a flying piece of metal.
Officers were alerted to the explosion Friday in Schoeppingen, near the Dutch border, and found cash and condom packets lying on the ground apparently untouched.
A local hospital informed police that a 29-year-old had died after being brought in by two other men. They initially said he had fallen down stairs, but police said Monday one of them later admitted the victim's injuries were related to the explosion.
They say the three men apparently got into a car after triggering the explosion, but the 29-year-old didn't close his door and was hit by debris when the machine exploded. (POLICE SAID THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO ESTABLISH WHY THE MEN BLEW UP THE MACHINE!)

 Now that Christmas is over .........., did Santa bring ya the presents you wanted kids?

Seems there's a hot [sic] new gift idea in India that's really catching on bunky: With the holiday season in full swing, Indians are flocking to the online marketplace in droves. But there's one unusual item flying off the virtual shelves: Cow dung patties are selling like hot cakes.

While the patties — cow poop mixed with hay, made mainly by women in rural areas and used to fuel fires — have long been available in India's villages, online retailers including Amazon and eBay are now reaching out to the country's ever-increasing urban population.

Some retailers say they're offering discounts for large orders. Some customers are asking for gift wrapping.

In India, where Hindus worship cows as sacred, cow dung cakes have been used for centuries to fuel fires for cooking or Hindu rituals. 

Across rural India, piles of drying cow dung are ubiquitous, and malodrorous!

Well folks, they had a big storm all set for Southern Ontario today, but the weather man has changed the forecast, and now says that Montreal, and most of Quebec will get the shitty weather!
