The Beer and Popcorn Report

Today was the day we'd all been waiting for. The first of the Universal Child Care Benefit cheques arrived. Sad to say, we are already well stocked for beer, and I don't like popcorn. So, to the no doubt great disappointment of Liberals everywhere, the money has gone toward an educational, musical toy for my daughter and a number of books, including some intended to be the first on the road to reading. Yes, not only did we not spend the money on beer and popcorn, but, horror of horrors, my poor deprived child is spending her days at home with her mother, learning to paint, to read, to imagine, to talk, to create, to behave as well as being two permits, and so on. Dr. Carolyn Bennett better reserve us that prison cell now.
