Question: What do you do when you’re a blogger who is as blocked as a fat kid after eating entire triple-cheese pizza smothered in Velveeta?
Well, we’re about to find out.
If this picture of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau makes you feel uneasy and embarrassed to be Canadian (even though you aren’t) then congratulations, you’re now an honorary Canuck.
Yes, it’s safe to say that the Great White North’s elected leader shot his image in the nuts from the get-go, when the Trudeau delegation, including his kids, who will no doubt one day roll their eyes at photos and news clips of this mess, was received at the airport by a minister of state, not even a member of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet.
And it all went downhill from there, faster than a camel with cement blocks strapped to its humps.
After he went to great lengths to convince Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh that the Canadian government never associates with radicals, the world and millions of groaning Canadians, learned that one such deranged goofball was part of Trudeau’s own entourage in India.
Jaspal Atwal, who at the time was a member of the International Sikh Youth Federation, a terrorist group now banned here in the land of moose and back bacon, was convicted of attempted murder in Canada in 1987 after he attempted to assassinate a visiting Punjabi cabinet minister. Incidentally, why don’t these groups ever considered naming themselves using letters that can be used to spell a cool evil name? Like E.V.I.L.? People just don’t put the effort in anymore.
Of course, JT’s government tried to distance itself from Atwal, saying it was all a “mistake”, blaming an alternate universe version of the PM for the error, or something like that. I don’t have all the details. The point is, this monumental mess-up was compounded by the entire trip’s lack of official business, excessive photo-ops (which have become Trudeau’s calling card) and his ridiculously-insensitive overuse of Indian clothing. To make matters worse, Trudeau’s tax-payer funded tour to India was actually yet another lavish family vacation — including his own celebrity chef flown in from Vancouver, Vikram Vij.
Because apparently there wasn’t anyone in India who knew how to prepare authentic Indian food.
And that’s all I have to say about that. Now take us into the next segment, Barry!
So what else is on my mind?
Oh yeah, this happened.
“Barbra Streisand Had Her Beloved Dog Samantha Cloned: Meet Miss Scarlett and Miss Violet.”
Yes, according to Variety, Streisand revealed in an interview that two of her dogs, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, were cloned from her 14-year-old Coton du Tulear, Samantha, who perished in 2017. (Most likely by her own hand, er, paw, after having to endure years of listening to Streisand’s voice.) Before Samantha died, Streisand had cells taken from her mouth and stomach.
By the way, am I the only one who thinks the “Barbara” in this picture appears to be have cloned from an earlier version of Streisand? I don’t mean to be rude, but it’s freaky, isn’t it?
All right, I’ve done enough damage to your psyches for today, wouldn’t you agree?
See you in the lobby, kids…
