Today's top story isn't particularly cheerful, alright? So before I kill your Cheerio buzz by telling you that the FLQ is back and is planning to bomb strategic areas of English-speaking Montreal between February 15 and March 15, watch this slice of vintage Quebecois peace-and-disco. Men Without Hats, "Pop Goes the World."

The word of the day is: POSITIVITY.

The video features, amidst bubble soap and Casio-playing babies, the Bonhomme de Neige, and so this is perfect time to tell you that the Winter Carnivals are coming! The Carnaval du Québec will run Jan 26-Feb 11, while the Fête des Neiges de Montréal will be running Ja 27-Feb 11. That's right, FLQ. LIFE GOES ON.

Also! We finally kicked those yogurt-eating Tibetan's asses, thus proving that a poutine-guzzling Quebecoise can too become the world's oldest woman. Unfortunately, she died last night.

Finally, Concordia University has unveiled plans for a new image including a bilingual logo, which should non-plus the heck out of the FLQ. Hilariously, they're attempting to move away from an image of Concordia as a school that focuses on "Real education for the real world." Can't decide how to feel about it? Go watch the video again.
