Caption Contest, a natural evolution of political communication

The inspiration for many of the doodles over at ffibs, come from the propaganda distributed by the PMO. Five years ago the Harper government started limiting access to Harper, reducing the number of questions that could be asked and controlling which pictures would released to the public, by barring photographers access to events, in an attempt I would assume, to conceal, his aversion to white hats, his goofy smile or other unflattering images.

For the past five years we have only seen posed, staged, choreographed, images of Harper, that his boys in short pants believed best reflected the message that they wanted to project. Described as "a natural evolution of political communication", a PMO minion back in 2009 stated "that the practice [of producing their own] pictures is intended to supplement the supply of images available for media as well as bloggers."

 And for that I want to personally thank them, as I have had enjoyed many hours of entertainment scanning the posed shots of Harper speaking Yiddish to rabbis, walking down the street in New York city or learning about the disappearing arctic ice.

However the latest picture (above), of this year's northern tour, has left me speechless. 

So if you have a caption for this picture that can explain what the hell they are doing, please enter it in the comments below. The winning (all) captions (if I get any) will be added to the next post at ffibs.

The Harpers pretending to look all scientific like maybe geologists or Astrophysicists. Unfortunately, the dragon puppet/glove takes away from the gravitas of the image.

Things that piss me off, today

Government Negotiations
Do you think that it might have been wiser to wait for the federal court decision on the legality of the approval process used by the National Energy Board when giving the go ahead for expansion of the Kinder Morgan bitumen pipeline, before spending 9 billion plus dollars on what was originally purchased for 110 million dollars by Kinder Morgan, ten years ago?
Considering that we all knew that Harper’s National Energy Board was nothing more than a corrupt industry rubber stamp. Isn’t that one of the many reasons we got rid of Harper, including of course hiding in a closet when we were attacked (in case anyone forgot)?
Somehow I am now supposed to be confident that our government can successfully renegotiate NAFTA with the Orange Asshole.
Jesus I’m sounding like a conservative.
Dating Apps
My son has become a player, in his dad’s mind. He has three different dating apps that apparently are for daters wanting three different types of dates. He showed me one app in…

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,
