Bags of wind

The following "press release" to hand:

DannyCorp. (formerly the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador) and Byrne’s Energy Inc. (wholly owned subsidiary of DannyCorp. and formerly the Department of Natural Resources) have announced that they are now sole owners of the winds that blow across the Big Land. Consequently DannyCorp. and Byrne’s Energy Inc. have instructed their former government officials to measure lung capacity of every man woman, child and household pet in Labrador. Residents of Labrador and their pets will be billed according to the amount of air they use on a monthly basis. Bills will be retroactive to a person's/pet's date of birth.

When asked how collection will be enforced, Danny stated that “Well if they don’t pay we won’t be doing any more development in Labrador, except to dam off and drown the remainder of the Churchill River of course. We’ll just keep all revenues from the project and export the power to outside markets.” When reminded that this has always been the stance taken by the power brokers in St. John’s, Danny cancelled the remainder of the news conference and left in a huff.

ever notice it's warmer whenever politicians are in town? It's a phenomenom I've noticed in both Goose and Lab City.

Must have a lot to do with all that hot air. Why don't they try and harness that?

I'm just about to post something about this on my own blog,

Thanks for the sobering yet funny read!
