In an effort to fend off my recent malaise, and the ghastly news stories about the disgraced Canadian air force colonel who was sentenced to 25 years for murdering two women, I went in search of mirth online. I found a link to a short video from the show "This Hour has 22 Minutes." The segment is of 80 year old Canadian (specifically a Newfoundlander) acting icon Gordon Pinsent reading from the 'memoirs' of 16 year old Canadian singer Justin Bieber. For those of you not of the Canadian persuasion, Pinsent was most recently starred in "Away From Her" and had a part in "The Shipping News." As my my son noted, it's not what Gordon says that is funny...it's the way he delivers his lines that is priceless.
Finally, a bit of animal mirth was sent to my wife by a friend of hers. Some of the photos below may have made the rounds on the internet but I will include them here. Just because. The zombie cat is my favourite.
