Canada's Newest Minister of War
There was a discussion at coffee time today.
Half the room was proud their guy had been named Canada's newest Defence Minister (Minister of War). "He was the best intelligence guy we had in Afghanistan! The best! Badass smart motherfucker! Our guy!"
The other half of the room was a little less enthusiastic. "You guys forget we lost the fucking war in Afghanistan. At best he was the best of a sorry lot. The best of a bunch of fucking losers."
With that one of the less enthusiastic half of the room formed an L with his thumb and index finger and placed it in front of his forehead.
No fisticuffs or anything. We are as racially integrated as any workforce in Canada. Integrated yet inharmonious.
I figure the less enthusiastic half of the room won the argument. Nobody gives a fuck who Canada's Defence Minister is. It is like giving a fuck who the manager of Slough FC is.
You may differ.
