Saskatchewan Politicians Apologize For Amazing 9/11 ‘Pig Roast’ Flyer

by Jim Newell

A political party from Saskatchewan, the Canadian province just east of Mordor that’s known to nearby sprites and snow-furries as “hockey’s Arkansas,” recently planned a fundraising “pig roast” for which the guest of honor would be a fireman who nearly died on 9/11, in New York City.

The party’s publicists considered it appropriate, then, to promote the event with an unreadable flyer showing raging World Trade Center fireballs of terror from 9/11. (If you have not seen 9/11 yet, try YouTube.) This offended people like Rudy Giuliani, maybe, and maybe some other people, so now the Saskatchewan politicians are apologizing by dumping fresh baby seal hearts across the Midtown Manhattan skyline, for Love.

Okay, I was going to say, who writes this drivel? Then I encountered the “sincere and warm remembrance.” Yeah it was Glenn Beck who wrote that. I should have been able to tell by the cum stains. Oh, god, 9/11! Oh god! Oh god!

Well, that’ll teach the Saskos not to hire Ari

Yeah, we roasted a pig this way once. Kind of ruined the party with all the death and stuff.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve seen enough of those photos to last a lifetime.

Jesus. Doesn’t anyone THINK anymore???

Whats the matter, too soon?

Mr Blifil March 11, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Giuliani would not be offended, he would probably say something like “Mmmm…roast pig…” They could have him there as Debris Avoider Emeritus.

Mild Midwesterner March 11, 2010 at 12:44 pm

No, no… It’s a “pig roast,” so they’ll be honoring NYPD officers by making fun of them. They will not be cooking pork over an open flame.

Saskatchewan isn’t really a province. It’s a place people move away from.

Mista Eko March 11, 2010 at 12:46 pm

You should have seen when they invited that Auschwitz survivor to talk at their pot luck.

SayItWithWookies March 11, 2010 at 12:47 pm

[re=528752]Einstein[/re]: “Does this pig taste like airplane fuel to you?”
And I can’t believe Giuliani was offended by this — was it before or after he made a thousand copies and rolled around on them?

Troubledog March 11, 2010 at 12:47 pm

In other news, the keynote speaker at the Saskatchewan Bake-off is a holocaust survivor.

user-of-owls March 11, 2010 at 12:47 pm

This is more embarrassing for the party than the time they ran a slate of candidates in Nunavut.

queeraselvis v 2.0 March 11, 2010 at 12:48 pm

And to think, somewhere along the way someone thought this was a good idea.

In Saskatchewan, “Regina” rhymes with “Vagina,” and that’s the only warm place to put your dick for nine months out of the year. And it’s only warm because that’s where mom hides the meth.

Our Hobo Senator March 11, 2010 at 12:52 pm

Saskatchewan is where national healthcare got its start in Canada, so they are all Muslin terrists anyway. This just proves it. Also.

Cape Clod March 11, 2010 at 12:54 pm

Rudy Giuliani is offended only because he owns all the copyrights to that disaster.

If it’s a pig roast, shouldn’t they have invited Bernie Kerik instead?

Hard to believe that some people vote for a party dedicated to representing the interests of the Canadian Yeti.

I’m debating whether this was a better idea than the ending of Twilight sparkleboyfriend’s movie Remember Me. Ill-placed exploitative poster background or unromantic too-soon gotcha!media method of ending a film set in NY? …So hard to decide..

comicbookguy March 11, 2010 at 1:01 pm

[re=528750]Darkness[/re]: for Glenn Beck, the day after 9/11 was a happy day. If we had enough terrorist attacks, then we could alternate between horror one day, and Glenn Beck doing the happy dance the next day.

I swear, the Canadians up in Canadia are so innocent and unassuming in their actions it all borders on Down Syndrome.

A pig-shaped fireball. That really is an amazing flyer.

You need fire to roast a pig. Done and done here.

user-of-owls March 11, 2010 at 1:16 pm

[re=528796]Idlerat[/re]: Everyone’s focused on the imagery…look at the text: “His story breathes the essence of a man who truly remembers the gritty truth of that day. It will provoke sincere and warm rememberance in the hearts of all who hear it.”

Fess up…which one of you guys put this thing together?

[re=528796]Idlerat[/re]: Wow. Now that I see that, I can’t unsee it.

I thought that was a Rudy Guiliani For President campaign poster.

I thought it said CHEF. Guess I’m still traumatized after sitting through 30 minutes of Julie & Julia. The horror.

ello? crying eagle would be a home run! fat load of good universal healthcare does canadians. fat heads.

mercure March 11, 2010 at 2:44 pm

You know, Saskatchewan has a proud history as the originator, at a local level, of many public programs now enjoyed nation-wide, and was once highly respected for intelligence and high quality of its politicians.

But as with many inheritances, it was eventually taken over by the idiot wing of the family…

Lascauxcaveman March 11, 2010 at 2:48 pm

[re=528837]PineyWoodster[/re]: Not a hero, just damn glad to to be here.

ManchuCandidate March 11, 2010 at 3:12 pm

The Sask Party was formed shortly after when pretty much the entire cabinet of a Conservative Premier got arrested and jailed for expense padding. This is what you guys call a rebranding.

Despite what folks think, Canada City’s got some ConTards in them plains.

The tallest building in Saskatchewan is only three stories tall and the only airplane most of the inhabitants have seen is a crop-duster. They probably thought the picture was from the movie Towering Inferno since the other guest of honor selected to slice the meat and serve it was O J Simpson.

Wingnutia March 12, 2010 at 1:09 am

Maybe Rudy was just pissed because foreign wingnuts were trying to cut in on his action. After all, Rudy “a noun, a verb and 9/11″ Guiliani has a virtual monopoly in 9/11 scaremongering and exploitation.

How come my beloved wonkette isn’t covering more of that walking proof of Cheney on Cheney buttsecks Liz Cheney and her little neo-con porn production company, Keep America Safe? I’d love to read the always fantastic comments and exemplar professional snark from you all directed at her stupid ass.

Also, just to float an idea…but how about Wonkette makes an award type post for your best libtard commenters? You could call it the “Golden Trucknutz” awards…Palin would show up and pilfer all of your swag and anything else that isn’t nailed down…think about it.
