Which One's The Clown?


Prime Minister Stephen Harper (he's the one on the left) takes time out of his busy schedule this week to meet with Quebec's Bonhomme, the mascot of Quebec City's annual Winter Carnival.

The PM appears willing to do almost anything to improve his electoral chances in Quebec.

The length to which some politicians will go.

Rumour has it next week's photo op will be with Tin Tin, Asterix and Obelix.

I actually used to go skiing when I was a teenager at Mt. Ste. Anne...and then we would go to the Winter Carnival and get shitfaced.

Seeing Bonhomme when you're drunk for the first time?

That shit will make you sober for a looong while.

Bonhomme always freaked me out as a kid. I think he was also ripped off in "Ghostbusters". - G

Moooooog: Let me get this straight. You got drunk BEFORE you saw Bonhomme, not after?

nonamedufus said...

Georgina: Stay Puft is Bonhomme's distant American cousin, I believe.

Sidestepping, as usual, Harper narrowly misses Bonhomme's kick to the crotch.

Oh, what? This isn't PPP??

00dozo: I know. Could well have been. Good caption!

Ha! I love how you pointed out which one was Harper and I, too, thought of Ghost Busters!

hee hee hee

nonamedufus said...

Quirks: Well, I thought people might be confused.

Bonhomme totally creeps me out. It's the striped sash along with the serial killer clown face.

nonamedufus said...

Kelly: The sash is actually a Metis sash, one of our country's Aboriginal people. Nevertheless he's still pretty creepy.

I know you were making a point but I still felt it necessary to bring up the following. Tintin is from Belgium and Asterix and Obelix are French. I would instead suggest Caillou and Nic et Pic.

nonamedufus said...

Ohara: What do I know. I'm a tete carree who grew up in Ontario. But my Francophone wife says you're absolutely right. Well done.

Ohara said...

I'm a tete carree who grew up in Montreal. I prefer Tintin to Caillou.

Ohara: A-ha, the truth comes out!
