Weird-O-Cron™

Well, it appears the test worked, so with no further ado…

Welcome to the latest edition of the Weird-O-Cron™! In this edition we at The Silent Holocron bring you that oddity of Canadian oddities:

The Rhinoceros Party!

The Rhinoceros Party of Canada promised not only to ban winter but also to build sloping bicycle paths across Canada so that Canadians could “coast from coast to coast,” to pave the province of Manitoba and turn it into a parking lot, to tear down the Rocky Mountains so that Albertans could see sunsets over the Pacific, to make illiteracy Canada’s third official language, and to annex the United States in order to raise the national average temperature.

The Rhinoceros Party , started in 1963 by separatist writer Jacques Ferron, was registered in Canada from 1963 to 1993 and had become the fourth largest political party in Canada by 1984. The party was dissolved in 1993 after a new law mandated that all political parties in Canada run candidates in at least 50 electoral districts.

I wonder if Tim Challies belongs to this party…

    They were first in Quebec, and would actually be given equal time at televised debates. An early campaign promise was an additional bridge between Montreal and the South Shore, built entirely of ice.

    I think I accidentally posted on your old blog…sorry. What’s the deal with Michigan? Everyone is carrying on like they are the best thing since sliced bread.
