    This is Mr. Fluffypants, he’s our new Minister of Defence….

  2. Man, that’s a cute kitteh. PM forever.

  3. OldBrownSquirrel says:

    Any word on when G+ will be rolling out a Verified feature?

  4. Adam Owen says:

    The Head of State of Canada is The Queen, represented by the Governor General. The PM is just leader of the government. Canadians LOVE pointing this out.

      I clicked through solely to point this out. However, I was going to say it thusly: “Canada’s Head of State is Her Majestry Queen Elizabeth II of Canada.” Although English-speaking folk think of the English-speaker queen as the only one, there are a number of royal families around the world in addition to the Windsors.

    That is a robot that only thinks he’s a human. The kittens appear to be real kittens.

  7. carbonman says:

    Kittens… sweet, delicious kittens.

  8. Xof says:


    Really, though, you knew this. It’s just comment-baiting, right?

  9. Ashley Reid says:

    NOOO He is about to eat that kitteh……

  10. “Such a tiny, fluffy creature. She doesn’t know that I could crush her larynx with my thumb and forefinger just like that. Oh yessums, widdle kitteh oh yes I couldums…”

    I remember that episode.

      F.C.King wrote Public Administration In Ireland, Vol 1. You’re not F.C.King! I hope Google deletes you from the internet!

    The kitten is real, but Stephen Harper is a Muppet.

  13. svenjissom says:

    In other Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper news today, the Vancouver Sun reports that his government continues to muzzle the views of scientists.

  14. MikeJones1208 says:

    … and then he eats the cats.

  15. loki_monster says:

    OK stripey Stanley the kitty in the first pic is beyond adorable, exuding all the insanity and joy of a baby kitteh of that size.  Me want (Stanley, not Stephen Harper).

  16. Please world, look away

    Signed every other Canadian

  17. As a Canadian, I would like to warn you IT’S A TRAP! 

  18. Genre Slur says:

    I think he posts these photos in order to add ‘thrust’ to his appearance whilst on the Senior’s Home campaign trail. That tour included the “…chaos is lapping at our shores…” speech. Gah.

  19. Genre Slur says:

    I think he convinced the aforementioned demographic that they voted into office, rather than Oh, Canada…

  20. …can’t… process… too wrong on too many levels… *head explodes*

  21. It’s dangerous to go alone.  Here, take this!

  22. David Carroll says:

    Actually Xeni, Harper has a history of using his Cabinet Ministers as political props.  I think he actually likes cats.

  23. zombieprocess says:

    Heyyyyy… wait a second. It that the right kitteh?

  24. jphilby says:

    what Google+ is good for: cat pictures

    Safe, clean … too cheap to meter!

  25. Brendan Brady says:

    As is tradition.

  26. eric Francis says:

    Who could hate someone petting a kitty? Who cares about his disastrous policies, hes holding a cat, and its so cute!

     This is holding babies photo op 2.0 for the internet age. 

  27. MelSkunk says:

    To be fair, I don’t care for our PM, but he does seem to really like cats (which is a good thing here, Ottawa has a famous feral cat colony near our Parliament buildings)

  28. Richard Dagenais says:

    Not much of a fan of Stephen HerpyDerp but to be fair he also used it to raise awareness about east African drought fundraising.

    Somehow I find it hard to believe Harper would find his way on to Google+ within its first few weeks, but… you never know.

  31. Antinous / Moderator says:

    Apparently, memes are the new political spin.

    White House Rickrolls Twitter

    Eu fucking karyotes.

  33. matmccoy says:

    “Canada’s Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper”. Why point out party affiliation?

    Would you say “USA’s Democrat President Barack Obama”?

  34. brianary says:

    This cat is dead. Somebody bring me another cat!

  35. adyo says:

    Three fun facts:

    These photos are from months ago when his family asked the public to vote on facebook for the name of his new cat.

    There’s also debate as to whether it’s actually his G+ account.

    He is also a criminal and most of our country doesn’t want him in office.
