CIBC fraud department sleuths and their amazing investigative abilities
It only took CIBC five days and one false conclusion to determine that an email from "cibcstatements@sarcoplex.com" and signed "C..I..B..C Online Services" was not real. See the incredible detective work below:

Neverendum
I just thought I'd brag that my entry, "Neverendum", was selected as Urban Dictionary's Word of the Day on October 24. This is the most public attention for one of my submitted works since Chickadee Magazine published the picture of a park bench that I submitted in 1983.

The person who actually coined the term was Dave Rosen, who published the Quebec Neverendum Colouring and Activity Book in 1996.

Mainly How Gay It Is
Those of you who used to hang around the Stanley palace back in the heady days of McGill Improv might remember this awesome clip from the Daily Show. I particularly like Jon Stewart's early Noughties hair.
