And because all birthdays require rest and recovery, the greater part of today was spent on couch with the roommates watching TV and Red Eye. It is this ability to do absolutely nothing for an entire day that I love most about being a student.

When an NDP election ad came on, however, we totally lost it. Because... well, the image speaks for itself: the bag of money is totally a joint and thus one of the best "subconcious" drug references ever.

It's an understatement to say that what the NDP is doing is obvious. They're banking on the late night TV habits of stoners, knowing we will both squeal with delight and feel a closer connection with the party upon recognition. And while I don't need any additional incentive to vote NDP, it works: I now love them that much more.
