Friday Humour

I don't often post jokes here at canadiancomment but today I'm going to make an exception. Here is a classic sent to me by a co-worker:
A man on his way home from work in downtown Ottawa came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself, "Wow, this traffic seems worse than usual. Nothing's even moving." He notices a police officer walking back and forth between the lines of cars so he rolls down his window and asks, "Excuse me, Officer, what's the hold up?"

The Officer replies, "The Prime Minister is so depressed about the corruption scandals that he stopped his limo in the middle of the highway and he's threatening to douse himself in gasoline and set himself on fire. He says the country hates him and he can't quit because he hasn't a big enough pension to retire. I'm walking around taking up a collection for him."

"Oh, really? How much have you collected so far?"

"So far only about a hundred litres, but I've got a lot of folks still siphoning."

Hmmm ...are you sure that we are talking about Ottawa???

Calgary, yes I can see that. But Ottawa? I think they would just whine, then vote him back in anyway.

Here's a dilemma for you...what would you do?

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one.
Please don't answer it without giving it some serious thought. By
giving an honest answer you will discover where you stand morally.

The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, in which
you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be
honest, yet spontaneous.
Thoughtfulness is important for this evaluation to be meaningful!


You're in Ontario..In Ottawa, to be exact... There is chaos around you,
caused by a hurricane and severe and unusual floods. This is a flood of
major proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major
newspaper caught in the middle of this great disaster. The situation is
nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are
houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the

Nature is showing all its' destructive fury. You see a man in the
Ottawa River! He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken away
with the water and debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks
familiar. Suddenly, you know who it is... it's Paul Martin. Isn't life

At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him
under, forever. You have two options. You can save him or you can take
the most dramatic photos of your life. You can save the life of Prime
Minister Martin, or you can shoot a Pulitzer Prize-winning photo,
documenting the death of one of the world's powerful men.

Now, here's the question (please give an honest answer):

Would you select color film, or would you rather go with the classic
simplicity of
black and white?
