As It Happens

I’m listening to the CBC “As It Happens” podcast. Because it’s a podcast, I’m not sure if some or all of the stories are “April Fools” jokes. But one of the stories is about His Imperial Majesty Steven Harper only deigning to answer 5 questions a day while on the campaign trail, and I immediately thought of a particular scene in “The Simpsons”.

  • Will you really only answer 5 questions a day?
  • Yes.
  • Really?
  • Yes.
  • Just 5 and that’s it?
  • Yup.
  • No matter what happens that day?
  • Yes.
  • Every day?
  • Yes.
  • So what about those tax cuts?
  • Thank you, come again.
