Not feeling all that cheerful today, especially looking at this:

Is this my future? An electric chair for old farts like me? Checking out! And then I saw this:

Then I saw this and it made me laugh:

Workers busy at Stonehenge as they had to move the stones ahead one hour!

All is right in my world again.

So what else is going on? Oh the Canadian NDP’s Jagmeet Singh!

See the source image

“He saw a country wracked by poverty, illiteracy & disease. So he lead (sic) a revolution that uplifted the lives of millions. RIP #FidelCastro,” Singh wrote, along with a picture of a young Castro.

So the CBC adds this:

Now, the character limit on Twitter back at the time was 140, so perhaps we should give Singh the benefit of the doubt and assume he would’ve added, “Oh, but Castro was also a tyrant who committed monstrous crimes against his own people” if only he had the 280 character limit of Twitter today.

But he didn’t CBC. You did. Would you have given the same benefit of the doubt to Harper? And what about his spelling? A leder who cannot spell properlie!

Looking at Jagmeet Singh got me to thinking. Maybe, just maybe there could be a correlation here. What do you think?

“Jag, Meet Singh”

Too funny. Should be a hit!

From living in a third world shit-hole comes this:

Canadian High Commissioner to Barbados Marie Legault raised the ire of Barbadian education minister Ronald Jones, who said in fiery terms Tuesday she should be recalled to Canada for suggesting the country is ready for a female prime minister — and, in his view, implying that citizens should vote for a change in government.   Free speech anyone?

Or this:

Rio council member and vocal police critic Marielle Franco shot dead

And this:

“I will never go to Mexico again” Ontario man claims he was attacked, robbed in Playa Del Carmen.

Just another Saturday night in ole Me-kee-co I’m afraid.

To me travelling anywhere south of the San Diego / Tijuana border is the shits – both figuratively and literally. And always, always have a toilet close by.

That is my take on it. Canada, for all its warts and Prime Minister, ain’t so bad after all.

Song for the day. In honour of the timeless Stonehenge:

Have a happy Thursday.
