How to make a Coffee Fly

June 21st, 2006

Sitting at work yesterday, and I grabbed a coffee and opened the Toronto Sun. Flip a page, sip, flip, flip, sip. Bigger sip, page, page, big sip, mmm, little sip, page, page take a nice big sip, read:

Brian Gardiner of At Home in Hespeler (hespeler.blogspot.com) finds the dark lining in the silver cloud of what we thought was a pretty light sentence for Chuck Guite yesterday:

AdScam honcho (or patsy depending on you point of view), Chuck Guite received 3.5 years in prison for his work during the $250-million sponsorship scandal…

That half-year of the three-and-a-half years is significant for two reasons. One, he will spend Christmas in prison, not being eligible for day parole until mid-January. Two, he will serve a full year before being eligible for parole in mid-August 2008…

Poor Chuck! The Liberals spend years putting soft-hearted (judges) on the bench, and when one of them finds themselves in the prisoner’s box, they get the one tough guy. Sorry, Charlie!

PSHAAA! Flying Coffee.

That’s twice, The first time it was a carefully made Latte of my own creation when Joanne’s Journey made the Best of the Blogs feature.

Henceforth I have a new rule: No coffee in the mouth while reading Best of the Blogs.

    It was almost the old sitcom spit-take when I read it.
