Interests and Amusements
I have a life-long interest in helping
people solve the everyday problems that we all face living together in
a civil society -- hence my active participation in politics.
amuse me include The Wizard of Id, the hilarious comic strip about the
(shhh) very little king. I guess I like it because its humour is very
self-deprecating -- it makes fun of people (and especially politicians)
who are just too big for their britches.
its season five I happen to come across the television program, Buffy
the Vampire Slayer. I had always thought that it was some weird kids
program. I was mistaken. It is (was) just one of the most brilliant
television series ever conceived. It was not only very well acted, its
stories were always extraordinary at many different levels. It was
always full of humour and featured strong women as leaders. If you have
never seen it, get the videos and take a look.
Have you ever really appreciated the pun as a form of humour? My favourite pun book is Hymie Koshevoy's Treasure Jest of Puns - sorry, it's out of print.
I also think that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation - The CBC -- is still great but being destroyed by successive Canadian Governments who keep cutting its budget. It's a shame.
And things that BUG ME!!!
