CBC chairman facing ridicule in Quebec
(Graeme Hamilton, 9/19/06, National Post)

CBC chairman Guy Fournier recently told a French-language radio station that bowel movements are better than sex. [...]

Mr. Fournier recounted a train trip in the early 1960s during which a friend named Michel said going number two was as pleasurable as having sex.

"From that moment, I started paying closer attention -- and I have to tell you, I quickly realized that Michel was entirely right," Mr. Fournier said.

"And the most extraordinary thing is that, in the end, as you grow older, you continue to go poop once a day if you are in good health, while it is not easy to make love every day. So finally, the pleasure is longer-lasting and more frequent than the other."

He also advised against distractions while on the toilet.

The final triumph of the self.

Hey, he's got a point -- and you can also read while you're doing it, without anyone taking it personally.

Can you please broadcast it on webcam when you explain to your wife that you prefer the can.

It was only a little joke. And thank God she doesn't read the comments here -- er, at least I think she doesn't, gulp.

What is it with the Left's fascination with rectums and all the natural and unnatural things that can be done with (or to) them, anyhow? (Then again, they do seem to have an unnatural fascination with all their "precious bodily fluids", don't they?)

(And after reading the article, I'm disappointed he didn't express an opinion on Enumclaw Barn Dancing.)

After a weekend of freid foods and griilled meats, chips and dip (and a few obligatory veggies) as part of the Sunday NFL tripleheader (Giants-Eagles, Pats-Jets, Cowboys-Redskins), I will agree with Fournier's statement, at least as far as this past Monday morning.

Either Guy Fournier does not know how to ....; or I do not know how to ....

the next plateau, of course, is to do both at once
