Jack is pointing out someone's big ass in the audience. Wait! It's Stevie HardHair's big comfy bum! Jack spotted Stevie's big butt on Yonge Street. Jack was on Spadina! Hah! Man, That cat Stevie Cashmere is one big ass! Photo courtesy of the Toronto Star.

I was clunking along laptop in hand and we paused for an hour to take in the ocean.

I was surfing the net and throwing sticks into the ocean – hmm, that isn’t ironic but it’s darn close.

And these days, my surfing is pretty well confined to Jack Layton.

Trouble is I’ve seen most of the footage and riffed through most of the stories.

But the above video – you may already have seen it – tweaked my funny bone.

I had a better line than PM Hard Hair Cashmere.

But we’ll let it go.

I’m in a week of mourning and vowed to abstain from all partisanship until next Tuesday, five days after they put Jack down for the count.

So Good One! There Stevie. It’s a right honorable try from a guy with a stilted and stone-faced delivery.

And remember. Most of the laughs were coming from the monkeys in the chairs behind you.

We have a metaphor.

Something to do with the organ grinder and the monkeys. But we’ll leave it till next Tuesday.

In honor of Jack.

And Big Ass!

Hah.

I laughed and laughed and laughed.
