Canada is in a state of national calamity, due
to global warming the National Igloo in our
capital city (Ottawa) has been in danger of
melting for the first time in recorded history.
We need help, and any ideas would help.

Gawd damn it Celt!! if only you had brought this up a couple of days ago I could
have shoved it in my freezer for you. Too late now, I've gone and filled the
freezer up with food.

It is not global warming. It is that darn new-fangled electricty.

The National Igloo was nice and chilly until they installed electric lights last year. THATS what is causing the melting. We need to go back to the Good Old Days, with whale blubber lamps.

Install CF or LED lights instead of incandescent lights.

The reason we changed to electric lights was
because them darn down homers were using the
whale oil to soften up their mukluks.
I was thinking we could have a protest bonfire in
the Igloo to bring the issue to the populous.

NEWS FLASH!!

The NWMP has announced they have discovered a plot to melt the National Igloo! They released this picture of a suspect, and are asking for the public's help in locating the fiend before it is too late.

Now this is what I like to see, our friends in the middle of a national election, along with a major storm that has just devastated the country, and there you are first in line to help us out in our hour of need here in the land of the free, and the home of the cold. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
