The Hair’s Christmas message.

It was perfect. The controlled studio environment for the interview and the controlled interviewer kept everything in harmony. It was the traditional annual Christmas interview with the Prime Minister of Canada. Dawna Friesen, national news anchor for Global television, was quietly toned down to suit the occasion. The hair has never looked better.

Safe from the gales of outdoors, the hair has been gently teased and softly sprayed for the event. Stephen sat forward in his chair, aggressively controlling in his new glasses. His back slightly stooped from the weighing of time, the Prime Minister was like a corporate sales manager, commenting on the successes of his fiscal year.

The kindly Prime Minister spoke proudly of his efforts to create high quality jobs for Canadians. He explained that he can bring in foreign workers to work for less in the meantime. He is sure though that the provincial premiers are getting the message and arranging proper training for their citizens, so they can also work for less.

In answer to a question about the sale of corporate energy giant Nexen to a Chinese state-owned company, the economist Prime Minister cum sales manager explained that there is a great diversity of trade markets in the world. Mind you, he does not believe that state ownership of market dominating companies is a model for Canada to use.

His major concern for Canadians is that they are building up too much household debt. He thinks that interest rates have been seriously low for too long and this has encouraged Canadians to increase their debt, particularly in the housing market. He expects they will get their comeuppance when mortgage interest rates return to more normal levels.

While every effort had been made to make it easy for the Prime Minister, he seemed to be more rigid than ever—never once sitting back in his chair or appearing relaxed for Dawna Friesen’s slow-ball lobs. He must have been worried about the hair.

But the hair was fine. It never moved a millimetre. The hairpiece is still a bit darker but the hairdresser to the Prime Minister has added a brownish rinse to provide a stronger background for the color of his eyes. All in all, it was another successful production for PMO Promotions Inc.
