TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (296)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Tuesday, November 23; link good at time of posting):
A small but significant slip of the tongue had Canada's industry minister pleading for "more Canadian sex stories" on Monday, although he quickly insisted he was actually talking about success.

"We need more more Canadian sex stories," Tony Clement told an Ottawa crowd during a speech on the government's digital strategy.

A roar of laughter prevented him from correcting himself for a few seconds. "We need more Canadian SUCCESS stories ..." he said pausing to emphasize the correction, "... like RIM and its world-famous -- and now ubiquitous -- BlackBerry."


"It really was not on my mind. I want to stress that for the record. It just sort of blurted out."
