Willie And Frankie #5

These are the continuing adventures of Willie and Frankie; two security guards on Parliament Hill, walking the deserted and darkened halls in the wake of the summer recess. Um, “adventures” might be too strong a word.

Frankie: Heya Willie how’s it going?

Willie: Fine Frankie. How about you?

Frankie: Well it’s that time of year. The days are getting shorter, the leaves are starting to turn and there’s a nip in the air.

Willie: The Japanese Prime Minister’s in town, Frank.

Frankie: No, dummy and that’s politically incorrect.

Willie: Ewww, I hate when that happens.

Frankie: No it’s getting cool but you can bet…

Willie: …things are gonna heat up around here?

Frankie: Yep, the bus rides and BBQ’s are done with and it’s once again time…

Willie …for the theatre of the absurd?

Frankie: Boy you have a way with words, Willie. Yeah, Question Period.

Willie: Do you know why they call it Question Period?

Frankie: Goes nobody gives any answers?

Willie: Got it in one, Frankie, got it in one.

Frankie: And we’ll get to see…

Willie: …the pitbull and the trained seal?

Frankie: Uh, yeah, Government House leader John Baird and Liberal House leader…

Willie: That premier guy’s brother?

Frankie: Yeah, that McGuinty fella. It’ll be interesting to see them go toe-to-toe.

Willie: Ewww, the dance of scheming politicians.I hate when that happens. What will the big issues be Frank?

Frankie: Well the government’s been…

Willie: …skating on thin ice?

Frankie: Yeah, over that Quebec hockey arena funding business.

Willie: Clear the track here comes funding for a hockey shack!

Frankie: And of course the parties have been jawing all summer over the bill that would do in the long-gun registry.

Willie: If you ask me the government’s taking a shot in the dark.

Frankie: Oh really? If you ask me it’s the NDP who’ve gone off half-cocked.

Willie: Ewww, I hate when that happens.

Frankie: Well if the last session was any indication it should be pretty interesting around here over the next little while.

Willie: Do you think there’ll be a fall election, Frank.

Frankie: Are you kidding. The Conservatives and Liberals are so tight in the polls, neither wants to go to the people any time soon. No, we’re stuck with this minority government for some time to come.

Willie: Ewww, I hate when that happens.

With apologies to Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest from Saturday Night Live 1985.
