And later, he and I came up with this:
Day one: Mike Harris elected prime minister of Canada
Day two: Quebec seceeds.
Day three: Mike Harris becomes first assassinated prime minister of Canada.
Day four: Canadian graduate of UC Berkeley arrested. Claims he did it to 'keep Mike Harris from doing to my country what he did to my province"
Day five: Graduate student thanks people of Canada for not having the death penalty.
Day six: Alberta reinstates the death penalty...
...and so on, and so forth.
It was pretty amusing. %)
