#Flahertyjobs tweets mock Jim Flaherty's "no bad jobs" comment
Flaherty meant his comment to be a nod to blue-collar work -- "I drove a taxi, I refereed hockey," he told reporters -- but opposition criticized his suggestion that some Canadians were out of work because they were being too choosy about their jobs.
In the style of the recent twitter trend #TellVicEverything -- which blasted Public Safety Minister Vic Toews over his "online spying" bill -- Canadians unleashed their political humour with jobs ideas that poked fun at the federal government.
