“It’s raining everywhere! It’s amazing! Victoria! She sounds like she’s hot!”
What do Joseph Stalin and Madonna have in common? Luka Magnotta. Here are the weirdest bits from the Facebook profile of the Canadian Cannibal Porn Star. Some of this information, in retrospect, is chilling. Thankfully he was captured today. (via facebook.com)
Thank goodness for the apprehension part, not so much the BuzzFeed user part. Luka Rocco Magnotta, on the run after murdering and eating a man, was finally arrested in an internet cafe in Berlin. Also, he posted bare-assed photos of himself on our website.
Not even kidding. This is the almost too-ghoulish-to-be-true story of Luka Rocco Magnotta, currently wanted by Interpol for murdering, eating and dismembering a man — all on video — then mailing the body parts to Canadian politicians. WARNING: Graphic details.
A new law in Quebec would severely limit the legality of non-violent protests. Naturally, there’s a protest. In Montreal, people meet in the street every night at 8pm with pots and pans, making all the noise they can.

You just got pandabombed, Harper!
Just 42 St. Bernards out for a casual forest walk. Filmed on Lasqueti Island, Canada.
Photographed in Mirabel, Quebec. Very cool. (Coooool, get it? Sorry.)
A seagull got its head stuck between braided power lines in Canada this week. Luckily, Nova Scotia Power lineman Yvon Blin came to the rescue. Blin’s now a hometown hero, as he should be.
This should help the QLP shoot up in the polls. Wait, what?
Like, reaaaly can’t. Here’s a clip from ’80s Canadian kids show Switchback about a new phenomenon called “rapping”—which the host describes as “one of the hottest, hottest items today”—that features not one, but two secondhand embarrassment-inducing performances from some of the whitest teens to ever hock a rhyme.

Brian M. Calvert of Vancouver endorses his own country to run ours. But before you get all knee-jerk about it, just listen to what he has to say.
Winter is coming. The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus asked fellow Canadians to tweet in there tips on how to keep warm, and then (appropriately) used the tweets as vocal warm-ups.
This is what happens when you have socialized medicine…death panels and forced cleavagectomies. Canadian MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan, a 29-year-old rising political star, had her boobs philifustered by Photoshop on the official site of Parliament.
