“Non award-winning Canadian satire.” – The Globe And Snapchat

“Better than a tuna sandwich with no mayo. Or tuna. Or bread. Better than an empty plate. Is it a nice plate?” The Elephant Seal 

“Fake news.” The Toronto Supernova

“It’s nice to see you writing again.” Mom

Not the biggest. Not the funniest. Not the most acerbic, or sarcastic, or brutally honest. Sometimes the saddest. Why are you here? Let’s not overthink it.

P.S. If you’re here because of a recent post going viral, thanks for taking the time to have a further look around the page. I try to do my best to make each piece capable of holding a little water, be worthy of your time, and not add to the online cacophony without working in a few grace notes. I hope that’s what you heard. Thanks again for reading.

  1. Just found this Blog. Wonderful discovery! If it gets super popular, you will probably need quality help to support it but I think Canada enjoys good satire and humour, especially during these times.


  2. You had my full attention at ‘horrifying picture of a depravedly-genial country´.
    Great stuff! Thanks for the belly-laugh.
    Keep ´em coming.

  3. Your posts are making life a little more bearable with the current roster of unqualified politicians and their sycophants. Thank you for the excellent and eye-wateringly great satire!! ❤️👍


    • It’s easy to find reasons to doubt whether the effort that goes into running this page is worth it. Detractors are, at times, thick underfoot. So comments like yours are a welcome reminder that this little project has value. I really appreciate that Lynn. Thank you.


      • I feel giddy as a school girl at the mention of those clementine sized fists. My mirth has no end! But really, Paul, I mention you so often in conversations. Soon all of Sweden will know about you.
