    “I don’t call it late, I call it an adjustment of the date, for all the right reasons.”

    John Manconi, God bless ya. I haven’t laughed out loud for a long time reading the newspaper but your quote did it.

    The Transpo GM could look at the Alps and call them “a re-adjustment of flat.”

    Readers could call that quote “a re-adjustment of truth, for all the wrong reasons.”

    I wonder if John Manconi ever used that logic string with a teacher, when explaining why his homework assignment was not handed in per the schedule? If so, what mark did he get?

    Good one, Ron.

    I think it would depend on how many apples he put on her desk.

    cheers

    I will not be submitting my term paper today, but I don’t want to pay that three-apple penalty either, Mr. Gray. I will, however, give you an apple if I don’t submit my term paper by November. Cool?

    Gents. It’s only February and we have a long way to go before we conclude Manconi’s statement is “The Whopper of the Year” but I bet it gets play for a lot of years to come, especially since he’s not an elected official. And, don’t forget this is an election year so we’re going to hear a lot more whoppers before we’re finished with 2018.

    Sisco;

    Things were pretty quiet this year until Manconi uttered forth.

    God bless em.

    I wish him a long fruitful employment. He can single-handedly keep The Bulldog going.

    cheers

    Agreed. The various sports networks all have their “10 Best Plays of the Year”, “10 Best Bloopers”, etc. Even if Manconi’s “whopper” of this (election) year doesn’t finish 1st, I bet it’ll be in the “Top 10 City Hall Whoppers” at year end. I presume you roll out this annual list sometime in December.
