Voter apathy
« on: Oct 15, 2008, 10:57 »
The General Election was held in Canada yesterday. Voter turn out was 59%. Is this a trend worldwide for apathy towards elections?

No, but there's a worldwide dislike of politicians.

A woman, married three times, walked into a bridal shop one day and
told  the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth
 wedding.

 

 'Of course, madam,' replied the sales clerk, 'exactly what type and
 color are you looking for?'

 

 The bride to be said: 'A long frilly white dress with a veil.'

 

 The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, 'Please don't take this the
 wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for
 brides who are being married the first time - for those who are a bit
 more innocent, if you know what I mean ? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would
 be nice?'
 'Well,' replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's
directness,
 'I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe
 it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first
 time bride.

 

 You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as
 we were checking into our hotel. My second husband and I got into such
 a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had
 that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again.'

 

 'What about your third husband?' asked the sales clerk.
 'That one was a  Labour Party MP ' said the woman, 'and every night for four
 years, he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was
 going to be, but nothing ever happened...'

Who?  Never heard of them.  Couldn't find them in Google.

Brilliant! They have no profile whatsoever in Google. How apt.  :lol:
