Honestly, I just wet myself.

The set-up:

UNITED NATIONS — Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon says he'll give Moammar Gadhafi no opportunity next week to avoid an official scolding from the Canadian government — promising to "greet" the Libyan dictator as he gets off his plane in Newfoundland.

The punchline:

"As we promote human rights and as we denounce terrorism, we still have to live within the world community and, in that regard, we're obviously not going to deny fuel for his plane," Cannon said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon, determined to lecture someone else on "human rights." That would be this Lawrence Cannon.

You can't make this stuff up.
