What is Ova Prima?

Since 1887, the Ova Prima Foundation has existed for the sole purpose of exploring the mystery and the beauty that is the egg.

It is the Foundation’s primary objective to continue to build a body of scientific evidence that will shed light on the egg-and-chicken controversy, that most basic of conundrums. The Foundation’s long and exciting history began in 1865 when Craigorn Shippen discovered the first scientific evidence that the egg came first.

Canadian Apology…

“On behalf of Canadians everywhere I’d like to offer an apology to the United States of America. We haven’t been getting along very well recently and for that, I am truly sorry. I’m sorry we called George Bush a moron. He is a moron, but it wasn’t nice of us to point it out. If it’s any consolation, the fact that he’s a moron shouldn’t reflect poorly on the people of America. After all, it’s not like you actually elected him.

I’m sorry about our softwood lumber. Just because we have more trees than you, doesn’t give us the right to sell you lumber that’s cheaper and better than your own. It would be like if, well, say you had ten times the television audeince we did and you flood our market with great shows, cheaper than we could produce. I know you’d never do that.

I’m sorry we beat you in Olympic hockey. In our defence I guess our excuse would be that our team was much, much, much, much better than yours. As word of apology, please accept all of our NHL teams which, one by one, are going out of business and moving to your fine country.

I’m sorry about our waffling on Iraq. I mean, when you’re going up against a crazed dictator, you want to have your friends by your side. I realize it took more than two years before you guys pitched in against Hitler, but that was different. Everyone knew he had weapons.

I’m sorry we burnt down your White House during the War of 1812. I see you’ve rebuilt it! It’s very nice.

I’m sorry for Alan Thicke, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Loverboy, that song from Seriff that ends with a really high-pitched long note. Your beer. I know we had nothing to do with your beer, but we feel your pain.

And finally on behalf of all Canadians, I’m sorry that we’re constantly apologizing for things in a passive-aggressive way which is really a thinly veiled criticism. I sincerely hope that you’re not upset over this. Because we’ve seen what you do to countries you get upset with. ”
-Colin Mochrie, from the Canadian TV show “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”

Baked Fresh

When I got back from San Jose and found my good friend Rachel had left me an instant message. I thought I’d share.

Rachel: So albert from our wow group calls me
Rachel: totally out of the blue. i haven’t heard from the guy in a year
Rachel: and he just starts talking to me like he just was hanging with me yesterday
Rachel: “hey rachel, this is albert”
Rachel: “are you f—-ed up or something? the phone rang for awhile…but i’m totally stoned, so i don’t know”
Rachel: so, i’m all surprised to hear from him, etc. “no i was upstairs”
Rachel: a – “you were what? are you sick? you sound funny”
Rachel: r- “no, i’m not sick”
Rachel: a-“alright then, i need you to do a favor for me.”
Rachel: after consenting, this is where it gets fun
Rachel: a- “i need you to go down to the pet store, or whenever you get down to best buy or something, and go get two fish for the snake and feed it for me. can you do that?”
Rachel: !
Rachel: r – “albert, i don’t know where you live”
Rachel: a – “…at patrick’s place! what the…”
Rachel: “i’ve never been to your place, albert. i haven’t seen you in over a year”
Rachel: at this point i’m assuming that he looked at his phone and saw that he’d dialed the wrong rachel, because then he quickly figured it out and we had a good laugh.
Rachel: i thought that was a riot, and wanted to share it with you

Wizard Children Alcoholics?

I’ve noticed in Harry Potter students drink a lot of “Butterbeer” and I always just assumed that it was somewhat analogous to root beer. However there is a reference to someone being sloppy drunk and getting an “antidote” for Butterbeer, implying that it does have intoxicating effects.

Which is interesting considering Harry is only 16 years old in this book and many are younger. I’m guessing this relates to the fact that drinking laws are somewhat more lax in the UK, with the minimum drinking age being 18, and 16 in restaurants.

Still its interesting… This book promotes underage DRINKING.

I think we should hold a book burning!
