B-roll reveals breach of Section 21 of the Alberta Strange Sketch Act

It is not normally the custom of this blog merely to replay videographical material recorded by the actual ladies and gentlemen of the media, who are paid to pursue investigations of a disquisitionary nature.

Nevertheless, it is from time to time the mission of your blogger to draw the attention of readers to connections and parallels between seemingly unrelated data that help to explain some of the more enigmatic and impenetrable phenomena of modern life.

So, for example, while the exchange shown above between Stephen Duckett, the well-known doctor of economics who also heads Alberta’s rapidly disintegrating province-wide health board, and several employees of the media of mass communication seemingly makes little sense to Albertans, and even less to those not resident here in Wildrose Country, viewed in its proper context it is rendered coherent and lucid.

On its own, the video clip above is simply impenetrable, except as a possible violation of Section 21 of the Alberta Strange Sketch Act, which prohibits the use of a cookie and a stout man in a goatee to conclude a sketch.

However, to paraphrase George Orwell, the following clip renders the exchange between Dr. Duckett and the ravening jackals of the gutter press as clear as window glass.

And that, dear readers, is how the health care system crumbles. Dr. (PhD) Duckett is a Great Australian.™

    Mr. Duckett not only damaged our health care system but he is grossly negligent in representing the COOKIE MONSTER. ;) Strange sketch indeed!. Take a look at this:

    and that cookie survived unlike the health care system has with Duckett! hahaha

    Look, an argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes. Eating cookies, on the other hand, is far more important than how one plans to spend 40% of the Province's budget.

    Love the label "stout guy with a goatee"

    But I think he is only mustachioed these days.

    No go away, or I shall taunt you a second time.

    In that video you can clearly see Duckett not only state that he is going to break a law (intent) but that he follows through, and commits the act of J-walking. Clearly another example of this govt. thinking they are above the laws of the land.

    Oh, and the cookie thing is freakin' ridiculous as well.

    Looks like Stephen "Oi'm eating moi cookie" Duckett might have potential for work in comedy.

    It's good for a man in his position to have career options.

    Was he not guilty of jay walking as he crossed the street while eating his cookie?
