It is rumored that the provincial government of Ontario will soon be passing a law that allows for the public mockery and censure of those caught using their cellular devices during major holidays while at family events.
This law will supposedly allow for quick inspections of pertinent personal data: such as Word Press ‘likes’ and other cyber-minutiae* – but stresses that the circumnavigation of the virtual world while in the proximity of Grandma and Uncle Bob, should be strictly prohibited.
As spokesperson for this bill, Representative Boon Tarkas had this to say: “Nothing says selfish wanker and disconnected drone like bytes between bites.”
Surprisingly this initiative did not originate in the Eastern provinces♠ where the art of forthrightness and ‘getting drunk off your ass on screech’ and ‘laying it out like it was really is’ is far more prevalent.
Apparently, Hope does rise eternal!
