Political Correctness Over The Edge


   Political Correctness is a subject that translates emotions from both sides of the fence into an exploding war of words. Discussion is good. So we’re going to discuss, names.


From one side of the fence when a person calls for a name change for a sports team, a mall or whatever, the other side thinks that group or person, “has way to much time on their hands.” If you keep reading, you’ll realize that I too, have way to much time.

   Recently in Canada, Natan Obed, president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, a national Inuit organization, called for a name change of the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos. He thinks the name is derogatory to First Nations peoples. This is a lot like what the Washington Redskins are going through. Speaking as an old school white guy, ok “Redskins” might be pushing the boundary a bit. We can all understand that one.

   If you want to get silly about things, the Chicago Bears or Detroit Lions should have PETA in a fighting mad mood. How can you malign good animals that? So what’s next, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pissing off a Somalian Pirate Assoc.? The CFL’s Ottawa Red Blacks will have to do a name change, because I’m sure there’s a Communist Afro-Canadian Organization. Another sport will be touched as well, Womans Hockey. They’ll have to come up with a new name for each 20 minutes of play. There will be some feminist group complaining about the word “Period.”

   I’m mentioned all this because I’ve grown up with a name that could offend someone. When I worked in radio I had more than one boss ask me to change my name. “Cox” might offend people is what I heard. I grew up with the name and I’m proud of the name my Father gave me. So it’s not going to change. That explanation was good enough for any station I worked at. Do I stand up and yell that the poultry business having to change the name of Roosters? Oh Boo-hoo, someone might construe that I’m gutless and might think I’m a chicken. Bite me! I can’t tell how many times through school and at radio events that someone, thinking they’re so smart, has called me “Harry” or “Is your sisters name Anita?”. Now, as a stand-up comic, I can make fun of my name and I’m getting paid to do it. Who’s the smart one now?

   They say, that if you are picked on a lot, you grow up either really tough or you develop a sense of humour. I chose the latter. A lot of us wish that these complainers would do the same. Laughter is a gift, use it or Get Off My Lawn.

Walkers Canadian Wall

Wisconsin Gov and Presidential candidate Scott Walker or as Canada calls him…”Who”, wants to build a wall along the Canadian border. Has eating all that cheese in Wisconsin bunged up your thinking a bit? Looks like your doing a “copy and paste” of another candidate’s idea. The Commandment says…”Thou shall NOT steal.”
Canada has an election on at this moment as well. I’m waiting for Canada’s candidates for Prime Minister to respond in kind.


Rumour has it, The Liberals, NDP’s and Progressive Conservative’s, not the Green Party, because nobody really takes them seriously kind of like a Scott Walker trying to become President. Anyway all have met in a secret bunker and what this reporter has found out will shock.
    When the US North Wall is built, expect Canada to erect a huge speaker systems and blast your fine citizens with Neil Young, Justin Bieber, Leonard Cohen, Nickelback music 24 hours a day.


This will only cease when Canada will broadcast play by play of Lacrosse games.  Oh and you thought the War of 1812 (which Canada won BTW) was bad, just wait.

The US will have to keep some Canadians already down there like Ted Cruz, Justin Bieber, Jim Carrey, Seth Rogen, Ryan Reynolds and Norm MacDonald.


 He could be a Colonel in your Armed Forces. Plus a ton more hiding in plain sight. We in turn we want Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson back, because he used to play in the Canadian Football League and his Dad is a canuk plus Dwayne is just cool. Anyone else from south of the border that is already working in Canada will be allow to stay. As Canadians say, “Love Americans, they’re our Mexicans.” With that said, Americans will have a real choice on their hands, do you vacation in Mexico where your dollar buys so much or vacation in Canada where your dollar buys just as much? That’s why it’s always so windy in the US…the Mexican Peso BLOWS and the Canadian Dollar SUCKS. 

America you have the elite fight force “The Seals” but watch out for Canada’s secret force…”The Beavers”. I’ve found out that after your wall is built along the 49th, millions of Beavers will be called into service to gnaw through stone, wood metal and bring it down.
America, everyone of you knows…never piss off a beaver.

OK Scott Walker go ahead and build your little wall, built it out of cheese for all we care. This will give Canada a chance to figure out who you are and why you want to keep us out. Right now, when all others are “running” to become President…you Sir, are just a WALKER and by the way “Hey, Get Off My Lawn”
