Only in Canada eh.

Our very own National Mitten Registry.


Some clip-'n'-save rules of woolen thumb for your winter of glove spotting.

- Keep your eyes peeled around mailboxes, cash registers, subway turnstiles and anywhere else people tend to be digging around in their pockets. Our research shows these are mitten hot spots.

- Does the found mitt look too gross to touch? Has it been repeatedly run over? Is it submerged in slush? Leave it be!

- Is it propped up on a fence post? Again, leave it be! While we'd like everyone to participate in the National Mitten Registry, the greater goal is recovery.

- While we sympathize with the plight of lost earrings, socks, keys, laptops, umbrellas and pets, they are more than we can handle here at the Mitten Registry offices. Handwear only, please!

- An online gallery of all registered mitts will be maintained at www.nationalpost.com/mittens

- Please direct mittens with your coordinates, the mitten's coordinates and your anonymous voting intentions to National Mitten Registry c/o Benjamin Errett, 300-1450 Don Mills Rd., Don Mills, ON, M3B 3R5.


This year, to celebrate the first winter election in a generation, we will conduct the first-ever National Mitten Poll. We humbly posit that this unprecedented means of surveying sharp-eyed voters will change the face of polling in this country.
