Last year at this time I posted a joke about Texas and Manitoba.
As I was reminded by FB I recalled a witty heckle the Minister of Industry and Trade received when making a ‘stump speech’ in farming country.
I was the Assistant Deputy Minister for Trade at the time.
The Minister was addressing a group of farmers in a field on a hot summer day, and yes we do get hot summer days in Manitoba. Our temperature range is impressive. Ftom -40F in winter to +100F in summer.
The Minister hadn’t tealised he was standing on a cow patty. Many of the farmers saw it and sniggered. One yelled out “Look the politician is melting”.
Have a wonder-filled Christmas those of you who celebrate the nativity of Christ. Happy holidays to those who don’t and may 2017 bring hope and peace in your lives.
