When You’re Norway’s Prime Minister But You Gotta Catch ‘Em All In ‘Pokémon Go’

  I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the world’s kinda sorta going to shit of late. We may have all kinds of fancy new developments on the way, like Amazon delivering to our homes via awesome effing drones and such, but I don’t quite think that makes up for it.  

I’ve often wondered why we’re in the damn mess we’re in just now. Did we do something freaking terrible in a past life, which doomed us to be repeatedly screwed over in this one? Why is Satan lurking in all our backyards, watching, devising daily diabolical torments for us all (your baby will wake you at 3am, fat guy, and you’ll step on ten different legos on your way to the crib… mwahaha)?

Don’t bother asking our leaders what the hell’s going on, because they’re all busy playing Pokémon Go.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. In all kinds of jobs, the admin/paperwork side is usually a big ol’ pain in the ass. I’ve never been Norway’s Prime Minister myself, funnily enough, but it’s a safe bet that they’d get a fair amount of it. Erna Solberg is the country’s leading lady, and she was caught earlier this week in parliament catchin’ ‘em all.

Well, I say ‘caught.’ It’s not like anyone was really assed. The speaker at the time, liberal party leader Trine Skei Grande, said, ‘We ladies can do two things at the same time you know.’

That was it, really. All you Ego-dudes in relationships know that’s true. All this shows is that Pokémon Go is still as huge as ever, and that Norway’s politicians are much cooler than those where I live in Merry Olde England.
