GENEVA — Political Scientists believe they are close to codifying a system of measurement for public corruption. At an international symposium here Wednesday, they have voted to name the prime unit of corruption after Canadian Senator Mike Duffy. “The great thing about the Duffy is that it is so measurable,” said Dr. Felix Graves, chair of the nomenclature committee. “His malfeasance is minor, really — cheating on expense claims — but the quantity of funds is pretty well […]
Reversing the disastrous course taken by drafting the academic Michael Ignatieff to lead their Party, a bunch of old Liberal hacks have decided to roll the dice and “go dumb” with the son of a former Prime Minister and nice haircut Justin Trudeau. “The Conservatives have had some success with real morons,” said Liberal Party official Hubert Kickback. “Look at Peter Mackay.

“It’s just been too much for our crack team to handle,” said URNews Head In Chief Elsworth Lundrigan. “One Harper Government scandal and bungle after another, and the opposition parties looking on from the sidelines.” Owing to a recent surfeit of mockable material URNews will be on a brief, temporary hiatus in order that its team can be rested in preparation for the looming Federal Election. The final straw came this past weekend with Stockwell Day’s announcement […]
