Fool Me Twice

We all know the proverb:

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Fool me twice in a matter of minutes? Embarrassing.

Every weekday morning, I wake up to a tidy little curated collection of news articles courtesy of the CBC. Last Monday, there was an interesting piece that stated the PM would be addressing the U.N. with the suggestion that they move the headquarters from N.Y. to Toronto.
I didn’t see why the U.N. would want to leave N.Y., but hey, more jobs for Toronto.

That was astonishing enough, but two articles down, I found an announcement that Disney would be building a $6.5 billion theme park in the Toronto Islands. Incredible.

Yep, you guessed it, hog-wash. I was hoodwinked, bamboozled, and duped. Twice!!

I’m thinking of contacting the Canadian Oxford Dictionary people to have my picture printed under Gullible.

Next year, April Fool’s Day will have to survive without me. I won’t be reading the news πŸ™‚
