Hit this to see a Canadian gazing meaningfully at a low-energy light bulb. Hit this for a close-up view. He is very serious about that light bulb.
(Via Mike M.)
- He’s a Canadian; he’s just trying to figure out how to change it.
Or else he’s just figured out how to change it and now he’s trying to figure out how to write the instructions so the Obama family can understand them…Posted by richard mcenroe on 2007 05 15 at 11:09 AM • permalink

- Lalonde believes these individual changes can have a cumulative impact
He’s right. More and more people are likely to get get pissed off at him. Dick. Or as they say in Quebec, “Dique”.
#7: What’s that line from Wodehouse? “He stood there like a statue of himself, subscribed for and erected by a few friends and admirers.”
Christ, dude, it’s a light bulb, not Yorick’s skull.
Yeah, that pose reminded me of Hamlet as well. No doubt Yorick in the grave has more common sense and intellect than Lalonde has as a living organism.Posted by The_Real_JeffS on 2007 05 15 at 12:22 PM • permalink

How many Canadians does it take to screw in a light bulb?
None! There’s not enough room to screw in a lightbulb. Plus it’d be WAY too hot for a Canadian in there!Posted by Tex Lovera on 2007 05 15 at 12:35 PM • permalink
- How many Canadian liberals does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one–s/he holds it in the socket and the world revolves around her/him, thus screwing it in.Posted by andycanuck on 2007 05 15 at 12:36 PM • permalink

- #12 Since we’re getting all the Canadian jokes today, I might as well jump in with a traditional one.
Two. One to handle the bulb and another to go to New York to see how they do it.

- And while we’re at it, how come it’s just a white guy in the picture. What about the womyn, and the indigenous people (who were here before Columbus arrived; making them, I guess, very old), and the people of color (which includes blacks, latinos, and Asians i.e. all except Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, and Vietnamese who arrived after 1980, who are pretty damn hardworking and successful). And unless you can tell me for sure that the guy is gay, there’s a whole other issue right there.

- It only takes 1 Canadian to screw Canada, including the damn light bulbs!
OT – can I humbly suggest that we not do the typo correction posts, given the following assumptions:
1. We all know “we” know how to spell, and will not look down on anyone of ourselves for not previewing correctly
2. This is not a spelling competition
3. It will save a post and Andrea’s neurons
4. Mistakes happen – let’s not be too hard on ourselves.
Just a thought – but I see at least 1 of these posts in every thread and just don’t see the need, seeing we are all friends here.
- The subject of this individual’s adoration is Bill C-288, which is
“An Act to ensure Canada meets its global climate change obligations under the Kyoto Protocol”
The Act is delightfully filled with ambiguous instructions suitable for future disputations. It also removes from Parliament the responsibility to directly act upon the Protocol: it’s the government’s task to do the job and report indirectly on it’s accomplishments.In preparing to implement the provisions of this law, once it passes final reading in the Commons, the Environment Minister has offered the following impact statement as a prelude to enforcing the Kyoto Protocol, full report here.
I would suggest that this is of similar importance.

- To folloow up on mr. heinrichs manouveur:
The Conservative party’s government is a minority one and this bill was introduced by the Liberal party, which normally runs Canada and are not adjusted to the fact that they are not now in power. It really stinks. However, they are still in control of teh Communist Broadcasting network of Canada (CBC) and the media and universities. But not the talk radio stations.
But I digress.
The Liberal party it was that signed up to teh Kyoto Protocol, and did nothing about it, possibly because itr was impossible.
The beauty of the Parliamentary system is that future governments are not bound by acts of parliament because they can sinmply rescind them. So meaningless petty-foggin.Posted by Wimpy Canadian on 2007 05 15 at 07:33 PM • permalink
- I reckon he’s contemplating how he’ll look with a Peter Garrett tonsure. Or is auditioning for the role of Fester in the Canadian remake of the Addams family, with added social conscience:- “The Multiracial Addams Single Parent Family, Featuring Gay Gomez”.
As to how many Canucks it takes to change a light bulb, it depends where they’re from; from Ottawa, only one, but the lightbulb really has to WANT to change. From Quebec, “change your own feelthy lightbulb, you englees pig goat hamster.” Saskatoon, “what’s a lightbulb eh? We got wicks”. Vancouver, “why change it? We prefer the dark- we’re trying to be a socialist Seattle”.
Ah Canadians, like Northern Hemisphere Kiwis. (But less likey to steal your Commodore and molest your cat).
Vancouver, “why change it? We prefer the dark- we’re trying to be a socialist Seattle”.
Habib, you got it mixed up. Seattle is emulating Vancouver, not the other way around, eh?
Also, you are repeating yourself with “socialist Seattle”; it’s better to say “”socialist = Seattle”, eh?

- Paco, I’m not a fan of southern.
I do have some juniper juice in the fridge – and some tonic…
alas, no ice.
er, no, better not, already blown the diet eating greek style yoghurt – it’s all I could get down! (No chewing). When I shrink more I’ll be able to have the occasional spirit…

- Lightbulbs.. WHAAAT? They’ve been talking about lightbulbs?
I’ve just replanted all the bloody Gladdies and all that other crap. Wifey could not see how that was going to affect global warming or save the planet, but I reassured her thus:
It’s true darling I heard and saw it on the telly and read it on the internet
I must not believe everything I see heard or read.
I must not believe everthing I see hear or read..
- “Now, y’see, twenty years ago these here bulb trees grew us some monster bulbs. Yep, them were some beautiful bulbs. Spotlights, some of ‘em – you could see ‘em a mile off when they were lit up. Sure were pretty. Now, though, we’re lucky if we get these here dinky little bulbs. It’s that glowball wormin’, y’see. Too hot for th’ trees. It’s also gettin’ hard to get your hands on a good load of polar bear manure, ‘cause they’re drownin’ and all, so the trees go hungry. Gore said so, and he oughtta know, bein’ a politician and all.”Posted by Blue State Sil on 2007 05 15 at 11:50 PM • permalink

Spiny, I had to describe the Kyoto scam to my entire uni class the other day. If I had known, I would have simply handed over order forms for carbon credits. Dammit, I thought they were smarter than they actually are!
I remember the fun of being right wing on campus. (Is that like driving while black?) It was a great impediment to meeting girls – not that you’d be concerned about that, Ash.Posted by Muzzie Zapper on 2007 05 16 at 03:13 AM • permalink

- CFL’s are of limited use in Canada because they don’t burn bright when it’s cold out.
And you need outside lights to keep criminals away.
How many Canadians does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Well first you need the national action comittee on the status of light bulbs An unelected representative who’s wildly partisan to speak out on light bulb gender issues.
Then you need a human resources and light bulb audit to make sure all the light bulbs are representative of our light bulb import policy because we could care less about domestic light bulbs.
Then you have to deal with a light bulb blocade from the first light bulbs, where old light bulbs who don’t want to light up will shut down roads or rail lines and demand more tax money for nothing.
Then our MSM’s will worry about a light bulb backlash and introduce light bulb sensitivity training.
Lightbulbs have to be offered in English and French even though more Canadians each year don’t speak either.
At this point everyone will have forgotten they were even supposed to change the light as there is so much else thats more important to do. And everyone will die because global warming will mean the snow will melt 3 days earlier.Posted by hollingshead on 2007 05 16 at 12:32 PM • permalink

That light bulb is his only friend, and it was so turned on the first time they met that it proposed on the second date.
