Time is pilin' up, we struggle and we scrape

Alarmist budget day text from V:

It's over. Get those kids fluent in as many languages as possible and sort out some Canadian passports too.

Witty response from Gimme:

Jeez dude, it's only 50c.

Profound retort from V:

Exactly.

I don't know exactly what he means but nevertheless, anyone know any Canadians I can marry?

9 Johns and Janes for the comment whore:

They're having their election today, aren't they? The Canadians, I mean. Every Canadian i know sounds ambivalent as fuck about it so you may find they're streaming your way over the Pond before long. If mcpalin wins in 3 weeks, expect a whole lot of Americans too.

Conan Drumm said...

Canada? Are they not in the toilet like the rest of us, and all the bankers in the world hanging on the chain?

Twenty Major said...

You should marry Alanis Morisette. Then life in Ireland under FF and their cuntbudgets would seem perfectly acceptable.

Manuel said...

yis can all move up here.....I have a spare room and our fags and beer are cheaper......

problemchildbride:
There's going to have to be some serious Bradley effecting to get that dead man walking in now.

That or a coup. Me and Savannah, we've got our money on the coup.

Conan:
Probably. Though I heard that they just bought a Big Issue off of Iceland so if nothing else they're in a happy state of denial.

Twenty:
You oughta know that only last week there was a lady in my house who's mate is Alanis' best friend.

Honest. I'm so fucking in there.

Manuel:
That's right there on the internet now. You can't change your mind.

Canada's banking system is one of the strongest in the world. But then Harper just won a minority government for the Conservatives so who fucking knows how long that will last.

V is big into the grass is greener thing.

But from here, life looks good, if mind-numbingly boring, there.

V said...

I meant it in the sense that nobody has been paying tax which is the only way a gov can raise money for public services, and can’t take it from the upper middle class and super rich cos of the old ‘ low tax = jobs = growth’ mumbo jumbo, but I only half meant it any way so never mind.

The only thing that's better here is the grass, you can't eat it, you can't wear it, you can't sell it and you certainly can't smoke it, all you can do is look at it. If that’s enough to cause immigration from developed countries then fair enough.

snort!

V:
and you certainly can't smoke it

It's only a wonder we didn't give it a bash back in the peanut shell/nutmeg day.
