Campaign Diary, Day 22: Let's settle this like crazy men...

Well, I arrived in Montreal yesterday afternoon around 5:30, took a cab to catch Forking Mona Lisa, then forwent Fringing for the evening, instead opting to go catch the Internet Wrestling Syndicate's Fifth Anniversary Show way out near Frontenac Metro.

The most shockingly fun part of the IWS show was the final hardcore match, in which five guys spent twenty minutes smashing fluorescent lightbulbs over each others heads, and throwing each other through flaming sheets of glass.

But the funniest part was the first show of the evening, between two teams, one dressed in Quebec blue, the other in black and red shorts. The Quebec team held up a small poster of Gilles Duceppe. The other team brought in a giant election poster for Pierre S. Pettigrew. Both team's heroes had faboo hair, but ultimately the Quebec boys -- wearing shirts with the Péquiste slogan "Reston Forts" on them -- delivered a solid trouncing to the Liberals.

This involved chairs being smashed over their heads.

Screw proportional representation. Let's get IWS to take over from from Elections Canada...

(Come to think of it, this might leave us with an NDP majority. Am I right in thinking that Jack Layton was a wrestler in university?)
