Four PMs on a plane

I’m writing an entire column about that flight in this week’s Sun (which will be out on Wednesday, not tomorrow)! But you can have fun with it, too, right now in comments.

Caption contest!

Harper: We’re, um, good to go!
Chretien: A proof is a proof when it’s proven. And dere’s proveable proof that Martin isn’t here.
Mulroney: Nor Joe Clark! Now, have I told any of you recently about my historic free trade achievements?
Campbell: This is the closest I’ve been to actual power since, well, ever! Can I have a $16 orange juice?


  1. Pipes says:

    All in favour of sticking Duffy with the bill?

  2. Matt says:

    No caption, just a question:

    Why is Kim Campbell there?

  3. Desmond Acksworth says:

    “No. You can have a soda after you watch me drink mine. But you have to watch every sip.” – Harper

  4. Desmond Acksworth says:

    “No. Not yet. You can have a soda after you watch me drink mine. But you have to watch every sip.” – Harper

  5. m5slib says:

    Chretien: So, the first thing about balancing the budget is…?
    Mulroney: Ask your friends Reagan and Thatcher? You know they were *really* my friends!
    Harper: No, fool! You just lie, and if they don’t believe you, have Calandra tell a story about his kids.
    Campbell: I wouldn’t know thanks to that John Tory fellow…

  6. dave says:

    Brian: “I’ve never heard of the ‘Northern Foundation.’ What does your question have to do with us?”
    Kim: …I knew it would come up. I knew it.”
    Jean: ” Go ahead, Steve, answer the question.”
    Steve: “No more government ads on your network!”

  7. Kelly says:

    One of these things is not like the other… one of these things just doesn’t belong…(sung to the melody if the little similarly titled Sesame Street ditty…)

  8. Cynical says:

    Living proof that 75% of the time we could do a lot worse electing Prime Ministers.

    Where’s Tom?

  9. Ross Rader says:

    “Snakes On A Plane”

  10. Houland Wolfe says:

    Chretien “Which one of you M-Fs cut a poutine?”

  11. John says:

    They will have to vacuum the plane three times enroute with all the “name dropping” from Mulroney and Campbell.

  12. Robin says:

    Chretien: Now I know what a third party feels like surrounded by Conservatives.

    Campbell: Thank god Clark isn’t on the plane or I wouldn’t be sitting here.

    Mulroney: OMG, I can’t wait for people to see this then I can charge higher consulting fees!

    Harper: I can barely look at them, how can I blame THIS on Nigel Wright!

    Clark: (off screen) Thank god Campbell is on the plane or I would have had to sit with them.

  13. smelter rat says:

    I can’t think if a better occasion for another Shawinigan Handshake.

  14. G. Mcrae says:

    Mulroney: Ben should run for Prime Minster; he’s a lot more accomplished than Justin and a lot more handsome.
    Harper: Damn straight I’m putting on my own oxygen mask before assisting others, if they’re lucky.
    Campbell: What do you mean flight attendants can’t sit here?
    Chretien: I have had it with these mother f***ing snakes on this mother f***ing plane.

  15. george says:

    haper:how did I get stuck with Campbell as my euchere partner?

  16. Swervin' Merv says:

    Harper: Let me be clear. I never knew that Mandela was sick until the media reported that he died.
    Chretien: Just like your leadership. You’ll be the last to admit that it’s over.
    Mulroney: You’ve got to know when to cut and run, passing on the torch. Right, Kim?
    Campbell: But you have to learn fast which end of the torch to grab, so you don’t get burned.

  17. Bob Jones says:

    The only honest one is the one that lost by a landslide.

  18. Windsurfer says:

    Harper: cripes, now everyone knows we’ll be opening up our own geriatric ward at Chartwell’s.

    Social activities: darts; pin the tail on the donkey.

  19. Dennis says:

    Say what you will about any of these guys, but I think it’s nice that they let the stewardess sit with them for a while.

  20. Lawrie Jeffrey says:

    Kim Campbell ”once we get airborn, can you guys tell me what its like to have a majority gov’t”.
    Chretian ”Hey! I’m the only Liberal on here. Hope they don’t push me out the door. Sure wish Paul was here. Then I could help push.”
    Mulrooney ”Get me a deck of cards. I’m gonna take these turkeys for all they’re worth.
    Harper ”I finished all my dinner, Can I have pudding.”

  21. John Weir says:

    After all that Harper did to support the apatheid regime, pass me one of those bags – my stomach is churning.

  22. Vankleek Hill says:

    Chretien: When my plate gets here, der better be da pepper.

  23. Geoffrey L. says:

    So, do any of you have any job leads?

  24. Reality.Bites says:

    Not sure if was drawing straws, rolling dice, or a round of rock/paper/scissors/lizard/Spock, but Kim Campbell has proved that when it really, really, really counts, she can score a decisive victory over Jean Chrétien.

    • Reality.Bites says:

      Oops – left out that I was referring to how they decided the seating arrangement. But you all probably figured that out anyway.

  25. R. Kadas says:

    Anyone notice that the only photo the PM tweeted was one with JC?


    Harper clearly knows only one is worth hitching his wagon to.

  26. It looks like no one wants to be there, except for Mulroney, who may just be happy that someone is paying attention to him again. They must loath each other. A frosty conversation no doubt…..

  27. Vardit Feldman says:

    Hey! Where’s Elizabeth May? We can’t eat until she shows up. Kim get that smirk off your face! We want Liz May….she knows how to look hurt and sad like a professional! She would represent Canada well!

  28. Ridiculosity says:

    Chretien: “Merde! If only I’d booked a seat in Economy Class…”

  29. Mark says:

    Chretien: “Please tell the Captain that there is a problem with the right wing.”

  30. patrick says:

    4 PMS ON A PLANE- so they are all complaining about the food, the flight, their clothes, your clothes and about feeling fat! Fun flight.

  31. nez1 says:
