The United Nations recently gave our country a collective glove wash.
By now we all know the sad story:
This clearly proves beyond any doubt that a country’s standing in the UN must be directly related to its soccer prowess.
I suppose that means if hockey were a more popular international sport, we’d be running the world.
At any rate, our humiliating UN loss stunned
Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff declared
“The horrifying image of those blank census forms is burned into the minds of all right-thinking Europeans” fumed Ignatieff. “To make things right, my MPs and I are willing to fill out all the forms ourselves and mail them to capitals of
For his part, the Prime Minister took the high road: “I blame everyone but me for this diplomatic mess,” stated the Prime Minister. “But I especially blame Michael Ignatieff for reasons my speech writers will dream up later.”
Of course, regardless of who is to blame, our failure to win a seat at the Security Council table is the biggest blow to our national prestige since the McKenzie Brothers movie, Strange Brew, bombed at the box office.
In fact, when asked how this Security Council debacle will impact
