Then, the embarrassment:

And in case you are not freaked out enough …

    Agreed Peter. I can only take comfort in the fact that the US Population represents less than 5% of the world, so there may be hope that the 95% still have active brain cells functioning.

    For a long time Americans were told that Canadians and Australians were more sensible.

    That didn’t exactly work out.

    For a long time, Canadians and Australians were told that we were more sensible. We rested on our laurels, and we’re so very, very sorry.

    Canadians and Australians ARE more sensible. Both regulate the sale and possession of guns. Unfortunately, one of them gave us Justin Bieber.

    And then we elected Stephen Harper and we are ever, ever, ever so sorry. The only good thing I can say about him is that his, and his party’s,ratings are plummeting faster the the Loonie. 2015 when we get to kick his lot out of office can not come soon enough.

    I would say that it was very sensible to give you Justin Bieber (and Mark Steyn – hey, you’re welcome).
    Underhanded, but sensible.

    Just to join in the “sorries”, sorry we gave you Ken Ham!

    On the other hand, we’re not sorry to lose him.
