I just bought one of those GPS car navigation systems to keep me from getting lost as I travel through the wilds of America. (I often get lost even in the wilds of Oakville.)
And I got to say it's a pretty cool device. It not only shows me which way to go, but it actually speaks to me.
"Turn here," says a robotic voice.
Plus you can apparently change the voice to suit your fancy.
This got me wondering what these GPS devices would sound like if you could program them to sound like our political leaders.
They might sound a little like this:
Stephen Harper GPS voice: "This car won't move until I say it can move. Now prorogue this vehicle immediately."
Michael Ignatieff GPS voice: "You are travelling along Highway 401 ... at least I think it's Highway 401 ... I don't know this country all that well."
Jack Layton GPS voice: "Turn left .... turn left .... turn left."
Gilles Duceppe GPS voice: "Sorry I only give directions inside Quebec."
