One of many key quotes: "You touch me with that bubble, you're going into custody."

Bubbles are all fun until someone gets soap in their eye.

There was a lot of that sort of stupidity going around among Toronto's finest during the G20. Scroll down to the bottom of the linked BoingBoing article for a few more examples.

Or try Toronto blogger Kathy Shaidle for a few more linked examples, including "secret laws" passed by the Ontario provincial parliament in the dead of night giving the cops expanded police powers, in a constitutionally-debatable fashion...to, apparently, arrest people for blowing bubbles.

While violent anarchists and leftists were trashing shops and torching police cars.

Oh, Canada, you're so hosed, eh...?

I hope the protester doesn’t have this song on her mp3 player.

From http://bubbleblowers.com/music/Music.html :
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams they fade and die.
Fortune's always hiding,
I've looked everywhere,
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

"what's in the bubbles? "

"just dishwashing soap and glycerine."

"nitroglycerine, you mean! guantanamo's too good for you!"

from the Lawrence-Welk Liberation Army songbook:

a-two, a-four, a-six, a-eight
bubbles break down your global state!
a-eight, a-six,a-four, a-two
we won't rest till you feel our goo!

Guess she didn't have a License to Blow!

Now laughing friends deride
Cuffs I can not hide
Oh, so I smile and say
When a lovely protest dies
Soap gets in your eyes
Soap gets in your eyes.

Your Honor, we call as our first witness Mr. Stan Freberg...

Very o/t and hope you will forgive but... I have a granddaughter as of 1 pm today. Her name is Reagan Elisabeth. She weighs 8'5 oz and is 20 and 1/2 inches long. She has bright blue eyes and when I told her that if her mommy and daddy ever gave her any problems to just let me know, she looked at me the entire time and I think she took me seriously. Back o/t.

You can have my bubble wand when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

COngrats again, cindy and the same to your daughter and SIL.

Congrats nc!!!

*snork* at insom & bonmot

Hippie Protester, I Choose You!

That's no way to treat a monkey.

I love the smell of (na)Palmolive in the morning!


My son and daughter-in-law had their first child 19 months ago (our first grandkid)and the following observations have been validated:
- Grandkids are the reward for not killing your kids.
- Grandkids and their grandparents get along so well because they have a common enemy.


NC, congrats! It's a great pleasure to spoil them then send em home.

Congrats, nursecindy!

Two of my colleagues are close to foaling for the first time.

I can't wait to see the hollow, sleepless looks on their faces after about two weeks.

Congrats, Cindy!!! My new GD is 33 days old!! ENJOY!!!!

I don't want to be an alarmist...but babies often BLOW BUBBLES from their mouth......

LeDud: Coincidence??????

Yeah, prolly.

Mazal tov, Cindy. But beware. Kids these days have a natural affinity for bubbles. and once she starts on them, it won't be too long before she hits harder substances, like blocks and wooden trains. G-d help us all.

What a manly man showing off his man skills.

Congratulations, cindy!!!

I like bubbles. That.is.all.

Congratulations, nc!

Congrats, NC!

Never bring a baby to a bubble fight.

Congratulations, NC. How long before that "new baby smell" wears off? Probably never for a grandparent.
BTW, that cop was a real bubblehead.

Thanks everyone and congratulations to Punkin also. As for the officer in the bubble blowing video I'm just happy she didn't stick the little plastic wand in his eye. He would have asked for the death penalty. I think someone has anger managment issues.

If you'd ever been assaulted by a soap bubble, you'd understand.

Kathy Shaidle here, with leaked photo of bubble resistant suit Toronto cops will be wearing at next big protest:


Never bring a bubble wand into a bubble gun fight.

I'm assuming the weapon was preserved, intact, in an evidence bag, labeled People's Exhibit WTF...

"...Tiny bubbles
Make me whine
If they get me dirty
I'll make you do time..."

(soap)film at eleven?

congrats to nursecindy!

Apparently that protester has done this before. She's got quite the bubble wrap sheet.

the goal of the police at the G20 was to act pissy

Freedom of the friggin' press is wonderful.

cindy, congrats to you, your daughetr and SIL. Just married off both of my offspring within the past year so I'm just (impatiently) waiting for the parade of grandbabies.

When they were small we couldn't wait for them to talk...then we wanted them to shut up. When they were teenagers we held our breath hoping that they wouldn't get pregnant...now we're saying HAVE A BABY ALREADY!!!

Yes, it's nice that you have the right to call the press "friggin."

In that arrogant cop's defense, who knows what some whackadoos put in their bubble mix. SARS, perhaps? But he could sure use some lessons on dealing with the public. Assume cameras are rolling at all times, ya big dummy.

Layzeeboy I know the feeling. When I held Reagan today she grabbed my index finger and just looked at me with her big blue eyes. I told her that if her mommy or daddy ever gave her any trouble all she had to do was let me know and I would take care of it. I swear I think she understood. She gave me such a serious, thoughtful look. Of course I am totally in love with her so I could be mistaken. I asked my SIL what he was going to do when she started dating and he said he probably wouldn't do anything because he would be busy cleaning his gun in front of her potential date.

Did you blow Bubbles in high school?
Yes. Ok, I saw him the other day and he said hello.

Congrats, nursecindy!

Congratulations, NC. Do you have your babysitting calendar marked for the next twenty years?
