Rosie’s Six In the Morning In Honour Of People Who Reject The Science Of Climate Change and Yet Rely On A Rodent For Their Meteorological Information

1 YEAH, BECAUSE RESTRAINT HAS WORKED SO WELL EVERYWHERE ELSE Greg at Accidental Deliberations takes the mickey out of Brad Wall’s new found penny-pinching ways. Hey, if you want to channel an economist who can write, you can do worse than Paul Krugman.

2 FAKE NEWS BY A FAKE NEWS ORGANIZATION Remember when the Sun News Network criticized the CBC for making the news, not reporting on it? Well, it turns out that their reporters couldn’t find enough non-Caucasians to get sworn in on a citizenship ceremony for a news broadcast, so civil servants were ordered to take part in the ceremony by their bosses, on direct command from the Cons’ government.

3 REALLY, SASKATOON? THE CHRISES AT PLANET S CAN’T TELL A QUARTERBACK FROM 25 CENTS IN CHANGE AND AREN’T LIKELY TO SPEND $1,000 A YEAR TO FIND OUT Why does Alberta have two CFL teams and Saskatchewan only one? Because both Calgary and Edmonton have trading areas that are bigger than Saskatchewan’s population, and they have a 60 year head start in tradition. And Saskatchewan is Rider Nation, not Canadian Football Nation, Mr. Credit Union Centre manager. That’s your Al Jaffee memorial ‘Snappy Answers To Stupid Questions’.

As well, according to StarPhoenix city hall reporter Jeremy Warren’s Twitter feed, the city and the CUC recently completed their 10-year master plan, and building a $30K football stadium or its necessary accompaniments weren’t at all on the agenda. I mean, the City of Saskatoon wouldn’t be stupid enough to build a sports stadium without any of the accompanying infrastructure surrounding it, right? Right?

4 NECK DEEP IN THE BIG MUDDY NATO countries have spent more than a decade in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban, and it turns out that the Taliban’s biggest supporters were the intelligence service of the country next door -– the country that NATO relied on for assistance in fighting the Taliban. NATO countries –- including Canada -– may has well have taken all the money, blood toil, tears and sweat that were expended in our military and reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan and flushed it down the farking toilet.

5 NINE IF YOU COUNT THE CIA DRONE PLANES Here’s why you don’t want President Barack Obama mad at you.

6 YA THINK? The Saudis have to know something about the oil industry? What do they know about the future of the oil industry — and global warming — that North Americans don’t?

YOUR MUSICAL MOMENT OF ZEN The Austin Lounge Lizards, probably the sanest people in Texas politics, with their ode to Newt Gingrich.

  1. Hey!! What happened to the piece on Sun Media?! I was at the “accusations of nefarious plots with foreign media corporations” part and it was starting to get really interesting!!

  2. Has Environment Canada made a prediction on the Super Bowl yet, does anyone know?

    p.s. The CFL will never put a team in Saskatoon, Roise. The league has already tried foreign expansion and it did not work out very well.

  3. Welcome back, Rosie!!
    Roise did his best in your absence, but, just between you and me, it wasn’t the same somehow.

  4. Re: “That’s your Al Jaffee memorial ‘Snappy Answers To Stupid Questions’.”

    I think you restrict the use of the word “memorial” to people who are dead. And as any Mad reader should know Jaffee is still very much alive and contributing to the magazine.

    Here he is doing a reading of his work in 2010….

  5. #7 Thanks, Paul — much appreciated.
    #4 See, what did I tell you, James? When it comes to “Six in the Morning,” Roise is a very poor substitute for Rosie.

  6. Exactly how big is a “$30K football stadium”?

    If they can build one for $30,000 in Saskatoon, why is the Regina one priced in the millions, or is that the point, no CFL team, cheaper stadium?

  7. $30K wouldn’t even cover the cost of the sauna and hot tub in the home team’s locker room.
    But you’ll have to cut the dog blog some slack here, Trevor.
    Roise is new at the job. In fact, I believe it’s his first day.

  8. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to raise the spectre of Ireland. Wall was pretty pro-Celtic Tiger for awhile there.
