Hey, Quebec!!!

At this very moment, France has dissolved its government. Now's your chance to swoop in and take over. After you've signed the P & S, we'll all help you move your stuff over there.

I'd love to, but I'm busy that day.

Aw, c'mon, Mark. All of our friends in Ontario would sure appreciate the new-found elbow room. You'd be remembered historically as a North American patriot. So you'd have to schlepp a few thousand vats of poutine---no biggie.

Maybe Rob Ford can be the new French President? Everyone involved deserves it.

Will there be pizza? I could change my plans if there's pizza.

We tried already. They wanted too much money. Actually, nobody wants Mr Ford anymore. He's well past his 'best before' date, he just doesn't quite know it yet.

Apparently the Indycar announcers on NBCSN like Rob Ford. This does not say good things for the Indycar announcers on NBCSN. Considering one of them is Paul Tracy, well....

Well yes, 25ish% of Torontonians are either brainless, on drugs or totally whacked (or all three??), but the polls are very telling. Mr. Ford has no real room for improvement and over a longer term, is losing popularity.

The irony here is that I think he will actually clean up while losing the election.

Really, Fred, do you think there is any irony there? In the US, that's 'step one' of the process of getting re-elected NEXT go-round.

How many American Axiomoes think that we have more than 25% of the population who are functioning hydrocephalics?

Seriously, shine a bright light at a crowd while a friend stands on the opposite side. Have him count all the heads that are glowing a dull, rosy, pink on their opposite sides.

Yes, just like backlighting one's ear.

Start at the State Fairs that are all coming up---in every state. Yeah, that's a great place to start. 25%! Ha!

We go all the way around once. (Amusements parks are great for this, as are NASCAR events, Estate Equestrian events, 7-day- moving carnivals, ALL sporting events, pop/rock music shows, and Cirque du Soleil. We judge by gender and age, aiming for equal representation of both. Then we go around one final time and "crown" the cheapest (among age group) females and sleaziest males (again, by age group). There can be many winners, especially if the age-spread in attendance is broad.
Of course children aren't exempt! They may even be the "firestarters" at times.

Then, on the walk back to the car, we look at everyone going the other way and try to guess which ones are guessing to which group WE belong! Instant Karma can be fun.

("Hey, Bill, do you think that 50's-ish lady with the air-brushed wolf sweatshirt and the "blonde" hip-length hair thought I was sleazy?"

"Well, by now, yes, but at first, I think she thought you looked cheap.")

Edit: My fault! We're off-topic again. Were we talking about Quebec moving to France and offering assistance?
