Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a popular figure both in Canada and literally everywhere else. For years people have been talking about what a great boyfriend he would make. He's smart, charming, and handsome. Plus running a country seems like a really good job, even if there isn't a whole lot of room for upward mobility.
People love him so much that one company even went out and made a 2018 calendar called, "Justin Trudeau, My Canadian Boyfriend."
According to the description on Amazon, "The calendar features 12 images "Yucon" enjoy of model-like role-model Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Featuring sweetly off-kilter but well-meaning commentary about his views from his sparkling blue eyes on everything from love, family and of course global affairs and economic growth, it is a true celebration of the man, the myth, and the meme that is Justin Trudeau."
Many Trudeau fans are rejoicing. It is the gift they have been waiting for.
I would probably remember more important dates with one of those— Ben Rutgers (@BenRutgers) November 27, 2017
Other people think it is strange to sexualize a head of state.
I just threw up a little in my mouth. Please tell me this is a hoax. Even if you have to lie, tell me it isn’t so.— Jason Nerrick (@JasonNerrick) November 27, 2017
The calendar is available now, so be sure to pick one up before January.

If you were like pretty much everyone in the world, you were probably let down by the fact that Croatia didn't have their storybook ending in taking home first place in the 2018 World Cup. Sure, France had an amazing team and all that, and the contest's youngest MVP player, Mbappé, even donated all of his winnings from the tournament to charity—so I guess it's hard to be too upset with the competition's end result.
And even though everyone played their hearts out (except Egypt, I mean, they went again Saudi Arabia and the results were just embarrassing), there was a clear winner this World Cup and it actually wasn't even any of the teams. S
ure there's a first, second, and third place result, but all of those accomplishments pale in comparison to the wonderful memes that sprung up as a result of this glorious tournament.
More than a few were thanks to Brazil's Neymar.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
