umi stands 2.85″ tall and is the official paralympic mascot of the games. He’s an animal spirit figure with furry legs that turn and and a head that swivels. As you can see from his action figure Sumi is quite an unique critter. He wears the hat of the orca whale, has the wings of the thunderbird and the furry legs of the black bear. Sumi loves the outdoors, alpine skiing, and flying over the mountains with his friends on his back.
Miga stands 2.25″ tall and is also one of the official Olympic mascots of the games. She’s a playable sea bear figure with movable fin-arms and a swiveling head. Just what are sea bears? They’re orca whales that turn into bears when they come onto land. But Miga got stuck so she’s now part orca and part bear! Be sure to bring Miga along if you’re going surfing, snowboarding, or doing anything fun and exciting!

Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive an Economic Stimulus payment i.e HST rebate. This is a very exciting program from the Ontario government..
I’ll explain it using the Q and A format:
Q. What is Ontario ‘s Economic Stimulus payment?
A. It is money that the provincial government will send to taxpayers.
Q.. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers..
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of Asia ?
A. Shut up or you don’t get your check.
Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the Canadian economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:
1. If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, your money will go to China .
2. If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to Saudi Arabia .
3. If you purchase a computer, it will go to India .
4. If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras or Guatemala ..
5. If you buy a car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
6. If you purchase useless plastic stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
7. If you pay off your credit cards, or buy stock, it will go to pay management bonuses and be hidden in offshore accounts.
Or, you can keep the money in Canada by:
1. spending it at yard sales or flea markets, or
2. going to baseball or football games, or
3. hiring prostitutes, or
4. buying cheap beer or
5. getting tattoos.
These are the only wholly-owned businesses still operating in Canada .
The best way to stimulate the economy is to go to a ball game with a prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day until you’re drunk enough to go get tattooed.
