Beavers knock out power in Canada

Every now and then we hear about a small animal, usually a squirrel, getting into someplace it shouldn’t be and knocking out the power to an area. The animal terrorists have stepped up their efforts, and now Canada is in a state of panic.

Last weekend, citizens of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan lost power when a group of beavers chewed through a wooden power pole. Luckily, power was restored after an hour, because Canadian power companies are prepared for Canadian power interruptions. This is the first beaver-led coordinated attack on infrastructure that this blog is aware of.

In truth, we just wanted to see if we could write a post about a beaver in Prince Albert without snickering. We failed horribly.

People keep peeing on Saskatchewan legislative building

There are many differences between the U.S. and Canada, but we have many more similarities. For example, we hate our legislatures.

The sergeant-at-arms of the Saskatchewan legislature wants party buses to stop encouraging their customers to pee on the side of the building. Apparently, the first incident was noticed on camera four years ago, and it’s been a steady stream ever since. There’s no ordinance against public urination in the provincial capital of Regina, so the police can’t really do anything about it.

Fun fact: Regina, when correctly pronounced, rhymes with “vagina.”

Saskatchewan bans non-charity stripping

Take a moment today, and every day, to be thankful for how lucky you are to live in a free country and not under an oppressive regime like Canada.

The Canadian province of Saskatchewan has banned strip clubs, under trumped up concerns of human trafficking. That means there is officially nothing to do in Saskatchewan. The licenses of all strip clubs there have been revoked — except if the stripping is being done for charity.

When strip clubs are made illegal, only criminals will have strip clubs.
