OTTAWA, ON—According to a new report from Statistics Canada, the Canadian jobless rate dropped to a promising 6.8%, though funemployment didn't budge, remaining at 3.2% despite Tyler starting to think about maybe getting a job application.

According to Steph, who after a month of joblessness decided to just take it easy, maybe start a few projects that she'd been meaning to get around to, projects that funemployment may last as many as 4 more months in the current climate.

"It's cold. It's really cold," she said. "Do I want to leave the house every day in this weather to get to an office that I'll hate when I get there—and that place will probably be too hot? No thanks. I'm prepared to deal with these conditions of funemployment for a little longer. At least until it hits 20 degrees again."

Mike, who's working on his music and his basement and his car and his relationship, is philosophical about the continuing rate of funemployment.

"Honestly, I think a job would be good in some ways," he said. "The car would suffer. Driving around in this weather, the salt that would spray up to the underside of the car? Ugh, I hate to even think about it. The relationship, however, would not suffer. She wants me working. She does not want me here at her house all day. Oh yeah and it's her basement. Sorry, I'm not sure if I said it was mine, earlier."

"It's her car too. And she doesn't love the music. Maybe I should get a job," continued Mike.

At press time, Edwin lamented the still-too-high unemployment rate and told everyone he was looking very hard for a job now that he finished college, but privately he disclosed to us that he very much considered himself among the funemployed.
