Enjoying this so far! I like how the TG issues are handled. --Buck 23:57, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Note on the FPC and Canadian politics

While in our reality there never has been a Furry Party of Canada, we do have our share of joke parties each election which tend to be made fun of each election they run in. (Or parties that are serious, but are seen as fringe/joke parties by everyone else)

Just in the last election in '06, we had groups like:

and historically we've had even more far out groups. (See Rhinoceros Party of Canada, Natural Law Party, and most recently NeoRhino.ca )

Note that many of these "joke" parties are not actually intended to be jokes by the people that are running them, they're just a little "out there" or focused on single issues not necessarily of interest to most people. Though some are - I truly miss the Rhinocerous Party, their platform included great ideas such as installing an ocean between Alberta and Saskatchewan (the only two provinces without direct access to a coast). NeoRhino looks promising. :) Bryan 13:47, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
They aren't a joke party but it would still be hilarious if the bloc Quebecois ever won a federal election. --Devin 19:32, 31 May 2008 (EDT)

If I ever do a Paradise mix tape…

…I'll have to put the They Might Be Giants song "How Can I Sing Like a Girl" on it. It seems to sum up Joey's situation at this point (and a number of the other TG furs' too). —Robotech Master 18:57, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
