Ok, but you'll have to use the spittoon.

The best headline I've read since noon!
 
2009-01-06 02:15:59 PM  
so, he's a Canadian citizen with a funny-sounding last name ? Perhaps his family could fly from Montreal to be with him?

No more rhyming and I mean it!

Erm...he could watch some Khartoums?

Set that headline to a tune, and I'll croon.

This headline really works great if sung to the song 'Tea for Two'

Well, since its warmed up to -18C, Saskatoon ain't too bad today...

Wrong. The correct answer is "Anybody want a peanut?"

A Sudanese/Nigerian/American/whoever wants a free meal ticket in Canada but they can't get it, boo hoo.

If he can't fly, why doesn't he catch a ride on a ship?

I was thinking of the much more local Robert Munsch, but that works too.

Came for this, leaving with renewed confidence in Fark. It's not often a Khartoum/Saskatoon reference opportunity presents itself.

I must not pun.

Puns are the mind-killer.
Wordplay is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my humour.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the jokes have gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

FTFA: '...and had his name added to the U.N. Security Council's air travel blacklist'


Since WHEN does the UN have an air travel blacklist?

I call 'bullshiat'.

"The Last nubian On Earth"?

Or was that one starring Tom Cruise?

Note, there is a Ladder of Comedy but no equivalent Ladder of Drama.

No sympathy here, RTFA he's a terrorist. He can swoon for Saskatoon (wherever the hell that is) all he wants, but as far as I'm concerned its Canadian slack attitudes to security like this that partly allowed the 9/11 hijackers into America. Great going there guys.

Didn't the article actually say that he was investigated and that no discernable links to terrorism were found? And don't be such a douche, look on a map and come on up to Saskatoon, you'll find that people like me would still buy you a beer! We'll even add a little water to our beer so you are able to handle it :)

Could have been worse. He could have had to face a Judoon Platoon upon the Moon.

Why there's no Ladder of Drama or why I left my comment in the first place?

Puns are generally regarded as ranking fairly high on the Ladder, but they're sure treated punitively around these parts. I suppose I could just chase you around the stage with a baguette held 'twixt my nethers? ;) (Honk! Honk!)

First Rung: Low Comedy
Dirty jokes, slapstick, long noses, collisions etc.

Second Rung: Farce
Mistaken identities, coincidences, puppets of fate, characters struggle to be together, unhappy engagements, twins etc.

Third Rung: Comedy of Manners
Verbal repartee, clever insults, puns, witty dialogue etc.

Fourth Rung: Comedy of Ideas
Characters argue about important issues like war, poverty, gender, religion, class, government etc.
