It was my first time visiting Dr. Putz for a colonoscopy.  I went into his office for my first rectal exam.
His new blond nurse, Evelyn, took me to an examining room.  She told me to get undressed and have a seat until the doctor could see me.  She said that he would only be a few minutes.
After putting on the gown that she gave me I sat down. While waiting, I observed there were three items on a stand next to the exam table:
·        A Tube of K-Y jelly,
·        A rubber glove, and
·        A beer
When Dr. Putz, finally, came in I said, "Look Doc, I'm a little confused. This is my first exam.  I know what the K-Y is for.  And, I know what the glove is for.  But can you tell me what the BEER is for?"
At that, Doctor Putz became, noticeably, outraged and stormed over to the door.
He flung the door open and yelled to his new blonde nurse,
"Damn it, Evelyn!!!  I said...a BUTT LIGHT!"

The dumbing down of conservatives

How the Harper Government Committed a Knowledge Massacre

Scientists are calling it "libricide." Seven of the nine world-famous Department of Fisheries and Oceans [DFO] libraries were closed by autumn 2013, ostensibly to digitize the materials and reduce costs. But sources told the independent Tyee in December that a fraction of the 600,000-volume collection had been digitized. And, a secret federal document notes that a paltry $443,000 a year will be saved. The massacre was done quickly, with no record keeping and no attempt to preserve the material in universities. Scientists said precious collections were consigned to dumpsters, were burned or went to landfills.

Probably the most famous facility to get the axe is the library of the venerable St. Andrews Biological Station in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, which environmental scientist Rachel Carson used extensively to research her seminal book on toxins, Silent Spring. The government just spent millions modernizing the facility.

Also closed were the Freshwater Institute library in Winnipeg and the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Centre in St. John's, Newfoundland, both world-class collections. Hundreds of years of carefully compiled research into aquatic systems, fish stocks and fisheries from the 1800s and early 1900s went into the bin or up in smoke.

Irreplaceable documents like the 50 volumes produced by the H.M.S. Challenger expedition of the late 1800s that discovered thousands of new sea creatures, are now moldering in landfills.

Renowned Dalhousie University biologist Jeff Hutchings calls the closures "an assault on civil society."

Conservative-dominated Senate committee changed Mike Duffy report 7 times: documents

OTTAWA – A Conservative-dominated Senate committee changed a report into Senator Mike Duffy’s expense claims at least seven times, documents obtained by Global News reveal.
The confidential drafts reveal for the first time the extent of the changes on the May 9, 2013 Senate report into the expenses of the now-suspended former Conservative senator.

At the time, the Senate subcommittee on internal economy, budgets and administration comprised of two Tory senators – David Tkachuk and Carolyn Stewart Olsen – and Liberal Sen. George Furey.

The report was based on the findings of a Deloitte audit into Duffy’s expense. The audit said the senator, who claimed living expenses for his Ottawa home, spent about 30 per cent of his time in Prince Edward Island. But it also determined the criteria for primary residence are lacking.

The RCMP has suggested in court transcripts that Tkachuk and Olsen altered the reports with the help of the Prime Minister’s Office after Duffy repaid $90,000, later revealed to have been with former chief of staff Nigel Wright’s money.

Extra Mounties guarding Parliament Hill ring up hotel bills

The RCMP has earmarked $275,000 a month to cover hotel bills for officers brought in from across the country to bolster security on Parliament Hill.

OTTAWA—The RCMP has earmarked $275,000 a month to cover hotel bills for officers brought in from across the country to bolster security on Parliament Hill, the Star has learned.
Extra Mounties have been reassigned in the wake of the Oct. 22 attack on Parliament to deal with what the RCMP has called a “critical shortage” of manpower.
The RCMP has been tapping its new recruits to help fill the gaps. As new officers graduate from “Depot” — the RCMP’s training academy in Regina — they’ve been getting short-term assignments to Ottawa to patrol Parliament Hill.
One or two “troops” of RCMP cadets at a time — 30 to 60 officers — are being rotated through the capital on two-month assignments before being sent to their first permanent postings, one source familiar with the arrangements told the Star.

Hoover50th] Fwd: Moose hunters

Two moose hunters, Sean & Liam, got a pilot to fly them into the Canadian wilderness, where they managed to bag two big bull moose.

As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could only take the hunters, their gear, but only one moose.

The two hunters objected strongly. "Last year we shot two, and the pilot let us take them both... and he had exactly the same airplane as yours."

Reluctantly, the pilot, not wanting to be outdone by another bush pilot, gave in and everything was loaded.
However, even under full power, the little plane couldn't handle the heavy load and went down, crashing into the deep wooded wilderness.

Somehow, surrounded by the two moose, clothing and sleeping bags, Sean & Liam survived the crash.

After climbing out of the wreckage, Sean asked Liam, "'Any idea where we are?"

Liam replied, "I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year!"
