Feel Red Friday
While Prime Minister Harper had to defend his words on African Aid and help talk the Gr8 Scumpit into compromise on greenhouse gas emissions, French President Nicolas Sarkozy took some time with the PM to teach him how to better smooth over the public:
Nick: Smoother, Stephane, like you are touching a piece of red velvet.
Steve: It’s Stephen, not Stephane.
Nick: Not Stephane?
Steve: No. Stee-ven, like EVE.
Nick: Ah, oui, you are like Eve. No matter your personal life, Eve, use your hands to gesture in a firm but tender manner. Eese like stroking a woman.
Steve: Or like I’m patting a cat?
Nick: Oui, you can say cat if that’s what you want to call it. Hey, anonymous guy beside me, don’t do that with your hand yet! See, Eve, like Monsieur Anonymous, you go for yourself too quickly. Please ‘the cat’ first.
Steve: Gotcha. Hey, could you at least call me Yves?
Nick: Why so fickle, Eve, one name one minute, another the next. You Canadians, what is it about your identity your identity crisis?
Steve: What identity?
