The Devolution of Man

24 12 2009

I took this picture in a washroom in Langley B.C.

Visual instructions on how close to stand to the urnal to avoid peeing on the floor or our shoes.  I think it’s a good illustration of the evolutionary direction of the male gender. It wasn’t too long ago that we ruled the planet. Our paintings were the only ones good enough to hang in national galleries like the Louvre or the Prado. Women cooked but men were chefs. Time Magazine used to run an annual issue titled “ Man of The Year”.  We started wars for no good reason and ransacked other countries willy-nilly. Presidents gave White House interns cigars and did other important business with them in the Oval Office…… We spent millions of dollars of taxpayers hard earned cash so we could send men to the moon to ride around on lunar dune buggies and play golf…… Now look at us – we don’t even know how close to stand to a urnal.  Our knuckles are getting closer to dragging the ground every day. The Band Devo ( which is short for devolution ) recorded a song titled “ Are we not men?” . Yes we are men but we’re also going the way of the Dodo bird.  Oh well – we had a good run. Time to pass the torch. At least we can all still pop open our car hoods work on our engines. ….. well no, actually most of us can’t even do that anymore.


Just a guess here but I’m thinking they might be a major supplier to Hand Pulled Noodle Restaurant

Thanksgiving dinner

13 10 2009


Here’s a Thanksgiving dinner suggestion. Ever heard of a Turducken? Basically it’s a chicken, stuffed into a duck, stuffed into a turkey and cooked in one of those big ass outdoor propane deep fryers. I’ve never had one but they sound delicious. Mmmmmmmm…fat cooked in fat – what could be better than that?.  A  turduckenquin of course. Got the idea a few days ago when I passed by this place with a big sign out front that said  “Penquin Meat”. I didn’t know that you could actually buy Penquin meat but I guess  nothing is sacred these days. So I’m thinking that if you got a Turduckin and stuffed it inside a Penguin and deep fried it in a big ass deep fryer you’d have a Thanksgiving dinner that would be couldn’t be beat. And here’s the fun part. Invite all your annoying holier than thou vegan friends over. You know – the ones that are always laying guilt trips on you for eating meat. They’ll never bother you again.

Hudson’s Bay Company rips off Bob and Doug Mckenzie’s style

1 10 2009

IMG_1135In a shameless move today The Hudson’s Bay Company rolled out it’s line of Olympic clothing. Anyone who has even a passing familiarity with Canadian culture will immediately see that the HBC fashion designers have blatantly based their new line on the personal look of Bob and Doug Mckenzie.  This is not homage – it’s fromage. Bob and Doug McKenzie are Canadian cultural icons. Who’s next? … Bruno Gerussi ….Gump Worsley? This is cultural appropriation at it’s worst – it must stop and it must stop now. Remember Bob and Doug’s heroic legal battle when Bob found a mouse in his bottle of Canadian? Their David vs Goliath struggle with that corporate giant was unsuccessful but I’ll bet that they’ll come out on top this time.

They’re going to get a lot of HBC blankets from this lawsuit. If they’re smart they’ll take a page from HBC’s history book and trade them for beaver.
