    • QUOTES (4)

      • Daughter: I hope I get everything on my list this Christmas.
        Mother: You might not get everything. Even Santa's affected by recession.
        Daughter: How do you know, did you talk to Santa?
        Mother: If by Santa you mean Master Card's collection agency, yes.

      • Bob Rae: (to Michael Ignatieff) Do you ever trim those eyebrows? You could keep a family of raccoons in there!

      • Sister Bessie: NDP leader Jack Layton is thrilled with the great strides his party made in the October election.
        Jack Layton: I want to thank the people of Canada for electing the second-largest New Democrat caucus in our history.
        Sister Bessie: Aw, no wonder Jackie's so happy. His party jumped from 29 to 37 seats, a whopping gain of eight. So, if an election is held every four years, and the NDP gains eight seats each time, that means Jack will be Prime Minister when he turns a spry 98 years young.

      • Stephen Harper: In the service of this country, I have no doubt that we will emerge from these troubled times stronger, better and more united than ever before.
        Sister Bessie: I agree. We'll all be united, because we'll all be together at the soup kitchen!
