KLEIN “STAMPIED”

Monday morning, in the beautiful (yet corporate headquarter
ridden) city of Calgary, Alberta’s premier was busy flipping
flapjacks and beef sausages (because he can’t sell them to
his friends in the USA anymore) when a team of dedicated
pie-throwers delivered him the long awaited dessert that he
deserved: a succulent banana-cream pie, that Ralph Klein
himself qualified as “good tasting”, unlike his politics
(which leave a bad taste too often in many people’s mouths).

Obviously, the Banana-Cream three, who were from Calgary, did not
include a married gay couple. Ralph would not permit that in his
province, even though the rest of Canada’s governments will stop
harassing gay citizens and finally treat same-sex couples equally
by letting them marry. They find it utterly funny that Mister
Klein would try to give the pie-throwers lessons in democracy.
They suggest he opens a dictionary, looks up the word “plutocracy”,
and then tells them how much it costs to become Premier of a
province like Alberta.

Is it surprising to see Ralph Klein opposing the Kyoto Accord for
the right of big corporations to pollute, the same corporations
that finance his campaigns? Talk about democracy in action! He
even threatened to separate from Canada for his friends’ right to
pollute. Even if you do separate, Mister Klein, your pollution will
not stay over Alberta, and all the provinces are concerned. This
pie will not fill the hole in the ozone layer, but it feels good
to our environment, because, for once, the joke is not at our
expense.

Remember when King Ralph went in a homeless shelter on a winter night,
completely drunk, to yell at the people there and throw money in their
faces before leaving in a rage? Afterwards, he confessed he had an
alcohol problem; the three were happy to hear it, because, for a while,
they thought he had a problem with the poor… The stampede breakfast
marked the first time that Ralph Klein’s face was red in public and
it was not due to drinking. They hope that the pie may have finally
cured him.

Pie High!

P.S. Now, Mister Klein does not only have the threat of separation in
common with Quebec, both provinces have pied their Premier. There are
only 8 more to go!
