"In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy..."

"... how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest."

Canada and 'edgy' should never appear in the same sentence (except this one).

Canada sucks. Big time. I was just there.

It's like Newark. Without the charm.

Trooper York said...

They only send us crap. Crappy beer like Moose Head. Why would you want to drink something that would taste like you were giving a moose Head?

Trooper York said...

That's the whole reason why Rocky the Flying Squirrel killed himself.

Trooper York said...

And let's not talk about the weather. The bad weather always comes down from Canada. Why can't they keep all that shitty weather up there.

Trooper York said...

Along with their crappy actors. You realize that if Mike Meyers had to stay in Canada we wouldn't have had to deal with all this Shrek bullshit?

I see that photo, and I recall, "vortex."

That article made me laugh. It says the words are "painted" on her body, and says the Canadians mistook "sexy" for "sexist," when really the author of the article mistook "completely fake and airbrushed" for "real." I guess that's what passes for sexy these days. But I'm pretty sure that currently Pam's got quite a paunch.

Trooper York said...

When I was in St Johns all they did was celebrate all the traitors who ran away when we had our Revolution. "Loyalist this" and "Loyalist that."

Aristocratic Panty sniffers if you ask me.

Good riddance to them. Let them stay up there in their Mountie Hats singing to ugly broads with ringlets and crusty vagina's.

Trooper York said...

Go paddle back to Canuckville you hoser's!

Synova said...

Hey... what's the problem?

I thought Canada was so much more civilized than we are on account of not being so insistent on fetishizing free speech.

Trooper York said...

Canada is the armpit of North America.

And not the lush fertile armpit of a Lola Falana or Gina Lollabrigdia.

NO!!

The bare pimpled armpit chaffed armpit with one long greasy hair extant like that of Johnny Winter or Gary Busey after doing meth for two weeks straight.

It's not her body, entirely. A good part of it is from Corning.

Hate to remind you, but we were the traitors, much like the Johnny Rebs in that little unpleasantness between the states (which may be replayed soon).

And most of them stayed here after the war.

Youngblood said...

Canadian cities are usually only seen as "progressive and edgy" by dull upper-middle class American liberals, the kind who think that the ironic alt-pop star Peaches is doing something revolutionary and groundbreaking by singing about... (listen for the hushed whisper) ...sex.

Huh. Wikipedia tells me that Peaches was born in Canada. Go figure.

Beyond that, I agree completely with the obviously wise Trooper York.

Wow, that's a reputation to be proud of. Sounds like San Francisco without the view.

And "edgy" = dirty, covered in graffiti and full of annoying buskers, homeless people and drug addicts looking to thump you over the head and take your traveler's checks.

This one's definitely not a Frenchwoman.

Yeah, looking at those posters the first thing that jumps out is "her body hasn't looked anything like that in decades".

Paul Zrimsek said...

And PETA's senior Vice President, Nigel Tufnel weighed in: 'I think that city officials are looking at this lovely ad and confusing "sexy" with "sexist".

Fixed.

traditionalguy said...

Canadians are suppressed in many ways by The English Crown that they still feel they are a part of. And they all agree on one thing which is that they are superior to the hated mongrel people in the big bawdy USA that act like really free men (a/k/a Rednecks). It is a form of Racism. Some things they have done well, such as their side of Niagara Falls across from the the old abandoned Buffalo, NY rust belt. They also do Shakespeare and other plays extremely well at the Stratford Festival Theater. Toronto is an international city in the sense that it's population is largely immigrants acting out their tribal ways. They are not that friendly to people calling themselves" Amuricans". That word properly describes Canada and Mexico as well as the lucky rednecks in between.

Canada is the egg salad sandwich of countries.

Bad egg salad.

Chip Ahoy said...

That's a shame because that picture is very educational.

But I'm still very curious. Where does the fore shank start and end? Where's the brisket, skirt, and flatiron? The tenderloins? The sirloins? The rounds, the chucks, the rib-eyes and especially the tip, huh, where are the tips? Where does cubed steak come from and what is ground beef? Tail? Show us the tail.

bagoh20 said...

It should be banned, because it's stupid argument. We name the parts the same; they aren't actually the same, now are they? Otherwise bestiality would be a lot more common and understandable.

Bruce Hayden said...

And what do you do with all the silicone in her breasts? Besides, what we normally think of as "breasts" on animals (esp. birds) is a muscle, not fatty tissue (or, in her case, inorganic material).

Kirby Olson said...

Now the different kinds of political correctness will play bumper cars with the will to power thinly disguised by the various competing notions of equality.

O Canada!

Pogo said...

Canada seems like an overly large Berkeley, CA, where everyone tries to out-suffer, out-preen, out-be-offended, out-green, and out-diversity each other.

It's the hairshirt country, where ex-Unitarians go to buff their chakras and avoid the US.

Right, it's the nuttiest of nutty leftard treatise on being a vegan as a function of having a vagina. Stupid.

Kirby Olson said...

But the funny thing is the simplistic take of the authorities. They completely misread the document, in such a simplistic fashion that it almost is like revenge on p.c.

O Canada! You make me sick!

Fred4Pres said...

How lefty puritanical.

William said...

Is there a carnivore alive who would rethink his diet on the basis of this ad? Is there a man alive who would develop a degraded view of women on the basis of a pin up photo of Pamela Anderson? It's good that the clueless suppress the activities of the ineffectual. It's gives them both something to do.

Revenant said...

They only send us crap.

They sent us William Shatner. So far as I'm concerned, any nation that produced Captain Kirk (or, if you prefer, Denny Crane) is ok by me.

GMay said...

Howie Mandel cancels that out.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Howie Mandel cancels that out.

And Celine Dion provides the negative multiplier.

TosaGuy said...

Yeah, Canada is just sooooo edgy.

Offering Shatner as a counter to "they only send us crap" has a higher than average irony content, no?

Largo said...

"When I was in St Johns"

St. John (NB) or St. John's (Nfld)?

I can hardly imagine loyalist talk being much on topic in the latter. (How we were screwed into Confederation on the other hand ;-) )

Quaestor said...

Just imagine those intrepid Loyalists (we called them Tories, btw) trudging there way to the Far North to escape those perfidious rebels with their ridiculous notions of representative government restrained by a written constitution (how droll, imagine people wasting ink and paper on such a nebulous triviality). And then, after all their enterprise and sacrifice, after the terrors and tribulation of pilgrimage, what do they get as their reward? -- Newfoundland. Yep, that migration skewed the Canadian gene pool strongly toward "credulous naif" for 30 generations.

Trooper York said...

It was St. John's in New Brunswick. They seemed to be very into their "Loyalist" heritage. I mean where else would you see momuments to people who want to celebrate the fact that all they loved doing was kissing the ruler's ass.

You know, like the ones they are planning for Chicago.

Joe said...

I think she mistook indifference for progressiveness.

AST said...

This isn't a political issue, or shouldn't be. Neither is national health care, nor whether GM goes broke along with its unions.

She should have her image on the nose of warplanes where it belongs.
