IKEA’s Small Pot And Italian Grand-Mothers Do Not Mix

The image below representing an Italian family gathered around the “nonna” (grand-mother) was extracted from an IKEA commercial that has been running on television in Quebec for a while now. It’s an ordinary IKEA commercial where a certain amount humor is introduced into their televised commercials, at least here in Canada.
I am not sure if they used a small pot for jokes in the commercial or maybe it’s IKEA’s biggest pot, either way each and every time this commercial comes on, someone in our family is bound to make a humorous joke about the fact that no Italian grand-mother would cook with such a small pot with such a big family as depicted in the commercial.

To all the Italians and Italian descent like me, we know this pot is too small. LOL

Here’s the commercial:

Barack Obama Moves To Canada – Funny Canadian Advertisement

Not long ago I saw a commercial where they depict Barack Obama wanting to move to Canada after his end of term—of course as a parody. That you appreciate Obama or dislike him this parody is simply good advertising and nothing better than Friday, January 20th, 2017 to share it with my fellow U.S citizens visiting this site.

Take note, I have NO affiliation whatsoever with Dominion Lending Centers or their cronies.

Early DNA Experiment Vintage Photograph

A few weeks ago I bought for a Canadian dollar this vintage photograph which appears to be from the mid 1940’s.

It was presented to me by a seasoned barn seller who’s a very good friend with one of my relative’s friends from upstate New York. Supposedly the newborn in the picture was a genetic experiment between a spud of the fingerling potato varieties also called Russian banana and human DNA. The rich real estate developer from New York who ordered the experiment did so because he feared his weak genetics were going to be passed on to his children. Supposedly he believed mixing his DNA with Russian Bananas would make his children stronger to face the frigid cold of the state of New York thus less chances of perishing from pneumonia for example. His close associates were the ones to suggest the use of the small, stubby, finger-shaped type of potato varieties because these spuds would create a stronger creature capable of sustaining the cold winters of New York by vegetating all year long.

But you know how stories from friends of friends go, they are often misleading. So I will hang on to this vintage photograph until I get a clearer picture of the story or until one day someone finds the rightful owner of this photograph, be it a family member or the people involved in this experiment. Hopefully someone can explain a bit more why they let it lose in the first place and if there is any danger for the public.

I think I made a good deal as I will be able to regain the investment as old photographs are in demand lately. I just can’t seem to figure out the letters in the picture properly as I have trouble with my eyes. Not sure if it reads Rump, Stump, Frump, Pump, …really hard to read when you have eye problems as I do.  Anyway, at least I am sharing it for all to see with their good eyes.

Donald Trump Presidential Wagon

As a Canadian who observed, read about and studied on my own time the political realm of the USA I can easily say a good portion of Republicans are thoroughly delusional. I am talking about being delusional for what’s happening in the world and in their own country and also being especially delusional with apparent threats.

I can read in 3 languages and do translate other important news and discussions from citizens around the world and let me tell you rare are the groups that reach this level of misinformation and paranoia as the GOP. Of course not all Republicans are like that but with polls and careful attention one can not only perceive but even demonstrate how ill-advised most Republicans are.

Read this article from Addictinginfo.org and understand what all those polls means:  Republicans Actually DO Like Obama’s Ideas…When They Think They’re Trump’s

Take note most Democrats do not change their minds as much as the Republicans, based on who said what, this shows the level of cretin in the GOP realm is way higher, way higher.

And they want Trump in power? He won’t make it far the resident rump!donald_trump_presidential_wagon

The White House Farm Animals

When I heard the story concerning the Kenyan young man wanting to give away farm animals in exchange for the United States president’s daughter’s hand in marriage I laughed my butt off. The story is more complicated than the simple articles found around the internet let us believe. What the young man is doing does not mean he’s exchanging animals for a human but simply using the animals as a way to say to Malia’s father (Obama); “I am serious and I am more than capable of taking care of your daughter so when the time comes think of me first”. Of course he never said this in any way other than indirectly imply this in a video he released not long ago.

In a sense it’s as if he does not realize that people with African origin living in America have little to no link with Africa to the point it’s rude and insulting to most Americans of African origin. Maybe he’s mistaking his situation, being from Kenya but living in the United Kingdom while he studies, maybe he feels that other Africans living outside Africa still have links to Africa as he does. Who knows, at the end, I wish him luck in his endeavours. For us, let us enjoy this mash-up image to remember this event. :)

La Gachette – Montréal (French Punk Rock)

I present you a very interesting Punk Rock song called “Montréal”, performed by the group La Gachette and it is their first video since their inception. Sure there are many videos of them on Youtube but they are merely pub filming with poor sound. Talking about sound La Gachette is pure Punk but to many it is not completely true, that is because you have to learn Quebec’s Punk Rock distinctive sound just like Quebec is distinctive itself from the rest. Nowhere else in the world you ear this type of Punk Rock music and that French or not.

The lead singer of this group is Erik, the person with the French beret seen on the first still photo of the video above. On a daily basis we use to see each other because we both worked in the construction business, last news I had of him he was still in that business. I wish him the best so he can live a better life with his family, these people are hard working people earning every penny with sweat and pain, not easy after a day of hard labour to present a show on a Friday night for people to enjoy their weekend.

You can listen to more songs from La Gachette on their website: La Gachette
