Charmion BS: Bah! Humbuggers! (42) RE: BS: Bah! Humbuggers! 07 Dec 19


Oh, Helen, you made me larf.

I used to work in the Public Affairs directorate of the Department of National Defence, which has a famously twitchy firewall with the sensitivities of a latter-day Anthony Comstock.

I honestly thought I was due a visit from the Military Police when my terminal abruptly seized up and presented me with a red-flag obscenity warning about a document I was trying to email to Combat Camera. What was the document, you ask? It was the captions for a series of photos taken at the unveiling of the Aboriginal Veterans' Monument, featuring as many First Nations leaders as could be rounded up. The firewall had choked on ... wait for it ... the name of Matthew Coon Come, Grand Chief of the Cree nation.

The meatheads never did show up. Sigh.
