I need to take transit more

Somebody programmed the electronic scrolling display on-board some GO trains (local commuter trains in the Toronto area) to read "Stephen Harper eats babies". One passanger that actually worked with Harper told a newspaper: "I worked with Stephen Harper for five years and never once did he, in that time, eat a baby".

HA! That is just such a silly response. Harpoo must be humiliated to have someone who has worked with him respond in such a manner.

I totally know the scrolling of advertisments on the GO train, as I am a part time traveller of that transit system.

PDD: I think the guy was facetious.

But I never looked at it that way, since it came from a politician's mouth and most don't have a sense of humor. Plus, I expect responses such as that to be serious when it comes to these guys.

I think if you explained the Go train you should have explained Stephen Harper too... Hope you are better matey!

Stephen Harper is the Prime Minister, ignorant.

Yes, I am aware of that as I am a Canadaphile. I was just making a point. (Tony Blair eats adults, by the way.)

I just thought it was like explaining velcro to people who don't got no sneakers. I am iggorntios as they come except that Koizumi is sexy and has great hair and Rent is better than Evita.

Apologies, Whippy... I was surprised when I thought that you were ignrnt, but then you came through and restored my faith.
