A former teaching colleague of mine has started a very funny blog called The Daily Bonnet. He satirizes the ideas, quirks, foibles and traditions of conservative Mennonites be they cultural, political, gastronomical or religious. In Mennonite circles across Canada, the blog is becoming quite a phenomena. There are times when the posts have me literally laughing out loud.
Yesterday my husband and I were mentioned in a Daily Bonnet story that referred to a popular Canadian band, Royal Canoe. Three of its members have Mennonite roots in southern Manitoba communities.
If you haven’t read The Daily Bonnet and you’d like a good chuckle you can check it out.
PS. Not everything in the post is 100% true. My husband and I do not live on Wellington Crescent, although it might be cool to have a home in the heart of a neighbourhood that caters to the rich and famous.
