My Guffaw of the Day

If you're an adult aged 18 to 64, it'll cost you fifteen bucks to get in to Canada's "human rights" mausoleum in Winnipeg. However, there is a far pricier tour on offer at this shrine to victimhood, one that'll hit you up for more than twice the admission fee (in addition to regular admission):
Mikinak-Keya is a unique cultural experience exploring rights and responsibilities from a First Nations perspective. 
 Visitors will spend approximately 90 minutes with the Museum’s Indigenous program interpreters, exploring how the symbolism in the building’s architecture profoundly relates to the Seven Sacred Laws and the teachings of Grandmother Turtle.
This cultural experience has been created in partnership with a group of seven Elders representing Anishinaabe, Cree and Dakota nations. 
Program interpreters will make several stops throughout the Museum, however this program does not tour the galleries. Instead, the program explores the relationship between First Nations concepts of rights and responsibilities and elements of the Museum’s architecture and design. The cost is $39 per person. 
Please note that entry to the Museum is not included in the Mikinak-Keya purchase price. To visit the Museum galleries between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., please purchase a general admission ticket.
Nearly 40 bucks extra to hear about the teachings of Grandmother Turtle?

Er, no thanks.
