THIS WEEK: Fuck the white working class! PLUS: Don’t light up the bridge, do let me on the bus!!

“edited” by AL SOUTH

M Well I have to comment about the $40-milion WASTED on illuminating a bridge where there have been more suicides in the history of North America than any other bridge, apart from the Golden Gate in San Francisco. And that’s a true historical fact—the Jacques Cartier is a NOTORIOUS place of suicide in the record books! I think really that money should have been allocated towards public housing, fixing potholes or making sure the ice is cleared so old people don’t break their hips. [BLEEP!]

M Hello Mr. Coderre, mayor of Montreal. If you want my vote in the next election DON’T LIGHT UP THE BRIDGE. Find better ways to spend our hard-earned tax money, because this is stupid. Anyways, je me souviens. Ciao. [BLEEP!]

F Ok. This goes out to the fucking STM bus driver on the 108 line who, when I was trying to get on with this giant-ass BOOKSHELF, and I asked him if he could put down the RAMP, and he was like, oh, it’s not a mover. Dude, the goddam GREEN LINE IS DOWN, I can’t take the fucking metro, I’ve been taking three buses all over town, I walked 10 minutes to come to this fucking bus stop, it’s midnight, I’m 5 feet tall, this goddam bookshelf is 5 ½ feet tall, put down your fucking ramp and help me! There was like six people who helped me on all the buses and this goddam bus driver is giving me shit, all because the metro is down and I couldn’t get home with this stupid bookshelf that the guy on fucking Tradehole told me wasn’t that heavy. Arrgggh! Ok. Bye. [BLEEP!]

M I had a dream that I was serving Tony Bennett coffee in a BALLERINA SUIT, and then I went to the bathroom and there was graffiti on the wall, and it said: at the age of 10, man is an animal, by the age of 20, a lunatic, by the age of 30 a failure, by the age of 40 a fraud, and finally, by the age of 50, a criminal. So then I danced out of there. [BLEEP!]

M I was listening to Celine Dion singing and I realized, it sounds like a sea lion dyin’. Celine Dion …sea lion dyin’. Sorry. [BLEEP!]

M The other day I was on the metro and some hip hop dude gets on and he had on these GOLD CONVERSE HIGH TOPS. And I’m thinking in my head, does David Bowie know that his shoes are missing? If Ziggy Stardust played basketball, those are the shoes he would wear. Why on earth would you want to wear a pair of gold high tops that look like you stole them out of David Bowie’s wardrobe? [BLEEP!]

M Hey I just picked up the Best of Montreal edition and I have to say I agree that I do find it odd, Best Fries McDonalds, Best Coffee Starbucks. But then again you have to take the fact that a lot of people who read Cult Montreal are Ontario transplants who have just been shipped in by mom and dad, bucks a plenty, and they haven’t yet discovered all that this wonderful city has to offer. As for coffee I’d like to nominate that little coffee shop that’s on the corner of Mont Royal and St. Denis, right beneath the stairs. They always make a pretty sweet latte that’s not too expensive. [BLEEP!]

M Hi, so I’m originally a Montrealer, moved to Toronto for about 15 years, moved back. I love Montreal and I love Quebec, but there some stuff I just can’t understand. For one, I got a family, I buy milk, milk costs $4 in Ontario. Milk costs $6.89 in Quebec. I don’t understand why. Is it because it’s colder here? Probably not. Is it because the cows are separatists, souverainistes, and they need more land? I don’t know. But it just doesn’t make sense that a staple, something that every kid needs, costs 60 per cent more in Quebec. I’m almost thinking of putting together a documentary on it, the MILK MAFIA. If anyone wants to get back to me and join in or help me with that, or even just discuss, I’d appreciate that (leaves name and number). [BLEEP!]

F Hey Rant Line™, this is about the working class, specifically the WHITE WORKING CLASS. Seems like everybody, all the media, politicians of all stripes, all they want to do is SUCK THE DICK of the white working class. And I just want to say, fuck the white working class! These are the type of people who, if you tell them that they are better because they are white, will literally eat shit and call it filet mignon without even being prompted. You want to talk about millennial entitlement, let’s talk about white working class male entitlement. You got Hilary Clinton—she was not a perfect candidate, but she wasn’t a nuclear-war-starting psychopath. And she had a program to retrain and reintegrate into the workforce with better jobs workers in the manufacturing industry and coal mines. She would have helped. But then you had Donald Trump—all he said was imma get your job back. And they went for that. So these people, they fucking drink their SHITTY BEER and they have their fucking THIRD GRADE EDUCATION and they whine and cry about the politicians and the elites—oh, they’re lying to us they’re lying to us—and then Hilary Clinton—and they hate her because of her VAGINA and because she sounds intelligent when she speaks—when Hilary Clinton offers a complex solution to a complex problem, one that might require a bit of work on their end, learning a new job, but in the end its going to get them more job security, it’s going to help them feed their families, its going to make their lives better, they just ignore that! Because they just want to be lied to, they just want the guy who is going to turn the clock back to goddam 1964 and everything’s going to be the same and you’re going to work in the fucking COAL MINE and you’re going to work in the factory and you’re going to be just like some guy in a goddam BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN song and nothing ever is going to fucking change. I am so sick of these people, I am so sick of sucking up to these people! Fuck the white working class. And I say that as somebody who escaped the white working class. Fuck the white working class. Good night. [BLEEP!]

F Hi, my rant is about dickless motherfuckers roaming the streets acting like your shit don’t stink. My job on earth, only put here through god, is to let you know that your shit does stink. It stinks very badly. So freeze your buttholes and then get back on the street, make that money, and make sure you BREAK ME OFF at the end of the night, 2:45 max. [BLEEP!]

THIS WEEK: STM diversity, Physical Graffiti, plastic ubiquity! PLUS: Is it better to be a prostitute or a rufiana?!

“edited” by AL SOUTH

M Hey, I am waiting for the bus and I was just thinking—did you ever see a BLACK BUS DRIVER here in Montreal? Did you ever see an Asian bus driver? Did you ever see any type of bus driver other that a pure white Quebecois bus driver? What is up with that? I think even the POLICE have more variety now. [BLEEP!]

F About kicking Sid Vicious in the balls. Let Sid Vicious rest in peace. He was a NICE GUY. He had nothing to do with whatever happened, you don’t know the whole story, there’s a lot of bullshit surrounding him. Let the man rest in peace. And as for kicking him in the balls, I would blow your fucking balls into pieces for what you said, you stupid son of a bitch. [BLEEP!]

M Hello, I’m commenting about the person who complained about the DOLLAR STORE PLASTIC. Well, yes, it’s obvious that when you go into a dollar store, it’s just this AMUSEMENT PARK of plastic shit. But it’s not just China, it’s the whole world that has a plastic problem. We have a problem with everything—from your Sunlight liquid detergent to your shoes, plastic is everywhere. I think that’s probably the challenge for humanity, apart from nuclear annihilation and other unmentionable people that run the governments of our world. It’s the whole thing, it’s not just China. [BLEEP!]

F Hi, this in response to the moron who thinks that people should be eating RICE and POTATOES out of the food banks. Why don’t you try going to a food bank and getting a small bag of rice and potatoes and a can of tun to last you for two weeks? See if you fucking like it. Fuck you moron. [BLEEP!]

M Hi, this is the guy who was whining about how limited his choices were with his FOOD STAMPS at the Provigo, and this guy calls up and says that I sound like I am living in my MOTHER’S BASEMENT APARTMENT. Now, I take umbrage to that. No—I was abandoned at the doorstep of my mother’s WOMB, and when you’re singing for a band called the Wacky Pack of Lobstermen from Mars, you ain’t got a lot of options buddy. Thanks. [BLEEP!]

M This might be boring for those who are driving Maseratis and Mercedes Benzes and Cadillacs, but I ain’t in that bracket. I want to share my grief that a bottle of SOYA SAUCE is $6, $16 for a hunk of ROMANO CHEESE and $40 for a LEG OF LAMB. Let’s not go on. So yes, it’s very important to go vegan and just eat BIRD SEED. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. This one is about the album Physical Graffiti from Led Zeppelin, 1975, and the opening track is called “Custard Pie.” It’s a great rock tune and I’m listening to it this afternoon. Now I’ve had this album since 1991, I bought it at L’Échange on Mount Royal. Double album. And it just occurred to me that Robert Plant—he’s not talking about dessert! It’s actually a different pie that your girlfriend serves up for you if you’ve been a really good boy! Enjoy gents. Have a good night. [BLEEP!]

M I just realized that the first week in December in 1980 has got to be the WORST WEEK in the history of rock music. On December the fourth you had the press conference to let the world know that Led Zeppelin was ending because Bonham had passed away that September. And then four days later John Lennon gets shot to death in front of the Dakota Apartments in New York City, thus ending any hope forever for a complete Beatles reunion. Two events, one after another, unbelievable. The worst week in rock history, bar none. [BLEEP!]

F This is to the man who ranted that OLD PEOPLE falling and dying on ICY STREETS is natural and keeps them from living to a hundred and being a burden on society. People who fall and break hips don’t usually die. They often suffer painful and long recoveries, and you better believe that that puts a big burden on our health system. Plus all that shit you’re saying is called AGEISM, my friend, and you better grow put of it, because one day you too will wake up and be… old. Unless god forbid, you die young from a fall while riding around the iceless summer streets of Montreal without a HELMET. Hey, maybe that’s also natural and keeps people from living to a hundred and being a burden on society. Traffic accidents, hmm, by your logic that’s just another way to cull the herd, eh? Bye. [BLEEP!]

F Hey, I just want to give a shout out to NEO-LIBERALISM. People bash it all the time. But when FACISM is knocking at your door, neo-liberalism is not so bad. I think about this high quality of living that I have—you have to appreciate what you’ve got. You can’t just say let’s BURN IT ALL DOWN to the motherfucking ground, because you know what comes out of that? Donald TRUMP. And now the richest and freest nation on earth is going to be turned into a fascist fucking basket case. We’re all going to lose our high standard of living, we’re going to be all fucking poor and y’know, I’ll see you all in the SOUP LINE. [BLEEP!]

F To the guy who called Melania Trump a prostitute, it’s better to be a prostitute than a RUFIANA. And as for Donald Trump being a pousti and a malaka—I think he’s trying to do the BEST JOB that he can. He’s closing borders for a reason in Mexico and all around—because of the DRUG DEALERS. I don’t think you should be bad mouthing him. [BLEEP!]

F Well guess frickin’ what, I’m going to rant to you right now! I’m going to rant to you right now! Oh my Lord! We went to frickin’ CHOIR, and we practiced for 12 hours and then they pulled us out of the choir and made us leave because of severe weather warnings in our county, and we don’t even get to perform. And we practiced for more that 12 hours and we don’t even get to SING OUT. And I’m so SAD. [BLEEP!]

THIS WEEK: Tim Horton’s, Melania Trump, a dead sperm whale! PLUS: Icy sidewalks cull the herd, man argues!!

“edited” by AL SOUTH

M Really, we’re going to get HEATED SIDEWALKS? That has got to be the single stupidest idea the mayor has come up with yet. This is very very un-Montreal! We are Montrealers—we can walk on ice! If you can’t walk on ice, you shouldn’t live here. If you’re a tourist, learn how to walk on ice or go home. Or I guess go walk around the stupid underground city. But more seriously, in Montreal, old people falling down on the ice and breaking their HIP and then dying is the way things go, it’s natural. It stops them from living to be 100 and being a burden on society. It culls the HERD. Heated sidewalks will mess up the whole social order. [BLEEP!]

M Hi, this is in response to the fellow who had the vouchers from the food bank and went to Provigo. He has quite the sense of ENTITLEMENT. Instead of being grateful for the fact that he is getting food stamps, he seems to need to phone in and leave sarcastic rants about the prices at Provigo. May I suggest to him that he stop looking at PISTACHIOS and STEAK and start looking at items such as rice in bulk or perhaps potatoes. Use a little creativity and imagination and it’ll go a long way. You sound fresh out of mom’s basement and seem befuddled by the layout of a supermarket—maybe you’ve been doing your shopping at the dépanneur? Peace. [BLEEP!]

M A SPERM WHALE was found dead in the middle of the North Atlantic last week. It had swallowed a lot of PLASTIC in the ocean, dying from those causes. I just went to a dollar store, to save a dollar, and it ended up costing me a day of MISERABLE CONTEMPLATION about the future. Look at all the plastic from China in that store! How many whales can you kill? I can’t even believe people are so happy with this crap and just let it all go on without stepping in. But that’s the human condition, isn’t it? Rank idiocy. [BLEEP!]

M To the guy confused about seeing his recycling get thrown in with the GARBAGE in the same truck, man, you gotta report that shit. I did. Was only sorry I didn’t have time to snap a photo. Pardon the pun, but it would have made a big stink when it went to the local media. [BLEEP!]

F Just heard that Montreal has been officially named the Worst Traffic Congested City in Canada. Hooray for us—we’re number 1, we’re number 1! Yes, I am sitting in car stuck on the Decarie going south and yes, I want to KILL myself. [BLEEP!]

M Yo Rant Line™, what’s up. I want to speak to you today about that dude in the metro station, Tommy Boucher. You know, the HUGGING DUDE, he gives you hugs, to lift your day. I must admit the first time I ever seen him, I wanted to kick him in the balls just like Sid Vicious, you know what I mean? I was really in a bad mood and I said, how dare you stand in front of me and offer me a hug when I’m in such a pissed off mood? I just felt like kicking him right in the nuts. Anyways, I kinda got to thinking about it—maybe this guy offers something very important to Montrealers. And then I though about it some more and I said yeah—this guy provides the most important moment in some people’s day. He spoke on the news today about how he hugged a woman for 15 minutes and she cried on his shoulder. Tommy Boucher made a difference in that woman’s life that day. And to me that’s very important—it’s a necessary thing and Tommy Boucher, you should be applauded. And the next time I see you, I’m going to give you a hug. I ain’t going to hug you for 15 minutes, but I will definitely hug you. Keep on doing what you are doing. In my books Tommy Boucher you are all right. [BLEEP]

M This one is about that jackass of a president of the United States, Donald J. Trump. I cannot this twit is the leader of the United States. His WIFE is nothing more than a PROSTITUTE who he pays to blow him—I mean come on, seriously, you think she’d be with him if he had no cash? Come on. What a joke. This guy is a joke. Donald Trump, please, just go away. Go into hiding, go hang out with ELVIS PRESLEY, just leave the planet. You jackass. Go back and do your lousy TV crap. (sighs) I just can’t stand Donald Trump. Fucking jackass. What a malaka, pousti. [BLEEP!]

M Ok here’s my rant. So I wrote a letter to the editor of the Gazette with a cute little rhyme I came up with on New Year’s Day. Thing is, I never sent it in to the Gazette because I wasn’t sure it was up to their HIGH STANDARDS. But now that I’m reading the Rant Line™ I think you’ll like it. It’s about acceptance and diversity, and I wrote it while sipping my TEA at a popular Tim Horton’s. Now, if Tim’s isn’t a good example of a diverse group of people with common interests, then what is? Anyhow, enough said and here goes. (recites) “I don’t care if you’re black brown red white yellow brown or blue/If you’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to you.” Cheers, folks. [BLEEP!]

“edited” by AL SOUTH

M Yeah, I’m a male in my mid-50s and I’m responding to the jerkoff who ranted against Mitch Melnick and Bob DYLAN. Really—fucking Bono? You want to compare Bono to fucking Dylan? Are you fucking joking? Give me a fucking break. By the way, Dylan didn’t go to the Nobel ceremony because he’s been on a fucking endless tour for the past 30 fucking years and he’s always booked. But hey he sent a SPEECH. So if this little fucking TWERP who thinks that because Bono was nominated for woman of the year he’s better than Dylan—Bono has never written anything close to Dylan! Just remember twerp, that between ’65 and ’66, in 18 months, Dylan released three of the fucking best records that have ever hit rock ’n’ roll history including the number one rock ’n’ roll song of all time, “Like a Rolling Stone.” Really, Bono?! Him and his whole fucking band don’t fucking measure up to anything close to Dylan. Well, that’s my one rant, probably for my whole lifetime, thanks a lot for listening. And if you print it, I hope that this little twerp who thinks Bono is fucking great will read it. [BLEEP!]

M So I go to the FOOD BANK and I get these vouchers for Provigo, $10 each, thank you very much, god bless their hearts. I take them to the Provigo, I walk around all LOST IN THE SUPERMARKET—$8 for a tiny bag of PISTACHIOS, $5 for a steak, $80 for a turkey. It was so revolting and hideous that I lost my appetite, I felt like chucking my coupons into the trash. But I won’t, I won’t, I’ll try. Oh my god… food. [BLEEP!]

M Here’s my proposal for 2017 for Montreal. Let’s throw all the police in jail and free all the prisoners. Hallelujah. And if I’m not Leonard Cohen’s illegitimate LOVE CHILD I don’t know who is. [BLEEP!]

M Just reading the last Rant Line™ and seeing four or five rants about that band Graveland, and I gotta agree with one of the people—banning it gave it publicity. But I looked Graveland up on the net too, and they don’t look too much fascist to me, other than one or two photos of them doing NAZI SALUTES. The rest of the photos look like medieval VIKING-ish kind of stuff. And nobody mentioned the fact that LEMMY of Motorhead, rest in peace, was a big collector of Nazi edged swords and weapons and DAGGERS and the like. He had a huge, huge collection of that stuff. Nobody boycotted his shows, people still wear Motorhead t-shirts and they’re still very popular. Maybe these people who shut shows down like Graveland should concentrate their efforts on stuff that is threatening today’s world—like JIHADISTS. I don’t think Nazis are posing too much of a threat these days. I mean hey, this band is POLISH—Poland was one of the countries that suffered the most in the last world war. If they are that Nazi, you’d think that in Poland there would be some real outcry about having a Nazi band. Get your shit together, get your facts straight, man. Stop freaking out over supposed Nazis, seeing Nazis everywhere, man. What a joke. [BLEEP!]

F Hey. So I am really confused about something. The RECYCLING truck just came by and it was a GARBAGE truck and they put all the bags in and just mashed all into one big MUSH. Don’t they tell us to clean the jars and take the labels off stuff? And then they just mash it all together? What’s going on? [BLEEP!]

F Hey Rant Line™, I don’t know if you were just fucking with me, but I’m the girl who left the long and reasoned defense of JUSTIN TRUDEAU. [ed’s note: the rant was lost in a rare but major Rant Line™ system malfunction]. You might be joking but it’s important and it’s worth saying—Trudeau is not perfect, but you know who else was not perfect? Hilary Clinton. And if Hilary Clinton had have won the presidential election right now we’d all be talking about holding her to account on raising minimum wage, on extending maternity leave. We’d all be speculating happily on what cabinet position Elizabeth Warren might have in the Clinton administration. Instead, we’re facing the prospect of a potential HOLOCAUST, NUCLEAR WAR, a GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS that will hit everybody. These False Equivalency People who said Clinton and Trump are the same, that Harper and Trudeau are the same, there is no difference—these are just privileged crybaby white people. If you look at the NDP, who I assume that anti-Trudeau ranter wanted to promote, they were for the Saudi Arms deal because of the union jobs. On Israel, Mulcair kicked anybody who was a little bit critical of Israel out of his party during the election. Pipelines—Mulcair didn’t have a position on pipelines. This was all while he thought he was going to win. And when he got reduced to a third party RUMP, which he deserved, suddenly he became the biggest SOCiAL JUSTICE WARRIOR in the world. So when the adults get in, and they have to govern, sometimes they have to make compromises. I’m all for CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM of Trudeau, that’s great, I’m happy to hear it, but you also need to look at what the alternative is. And the alternative would be Kelly Leach or Kevin O’Leary. If you can look your Muslim neighbor, your visible minority neighbor, in the face and tell them that Kelly leach, who’s stirring up hatred already in Canada, is a better alternative for Canada than Justin Trudeau, then power to you. But I just can’t do that myself and I will continue to fight crazy right wing nutjobs but I will also continue to try to educate ideologically pure left wing nutjobs as well. What happened in the U.S., it could happen here. These people who just want to tear a man down because he didn’t present a UNICORN to them at their front door, I just, I just don’t get it, man. We’ve got it so good here and theses people… they just want to throw it all away. Andyways, that’s my rant, thank you. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. This is concerning Justin Trudeau’s visit to Sherbrooke, Quebec in the middle of January 2017. Justin Trudeau, you’re an asshole. The lady posed a question en anglais, in English—you should have answered her in English, you dickhead. You’ll never be half of the man your father was. You have no balls—they’re in Sophie Gregoire’s POCKET. You should not even be the prime minister of Canada, the only reason you are is because of your last name. But you are not really qualified. You were in the right pace at the right time, and it found you, and now you’re the prime minister. But Sophie Gregoire, she cracks the whip, your job should be—you LICK HER ASS. You do things like this to the Anglophone community, you’re going to see what is going to happen, Justin Trudeau. You’re going to be nowhere. The Beatles song “Nowhere Man,” it’s gonna be about you, bro. [BLEEP!]

M Congratulations to everybody who came out tonight to stop the National Socialist band Graveland from playing. This is not about free speech. This is about FASCISM. Fascism must be stopped, and fascist ideology should not be permitted to spread. Not at our concerts, not in our society. We will not let this happen. [BLEEP!]

F Hey, I don’t really know, because I had never heard of them, but I just saw that this band Graveland had their show cancelled, because the anti-fascist league or whoever made a FUSS and a protest. Ummm, isn’t there supposed to be freedom of speech here in Canada? And a bunch of people in masks can stop it? Isn’t that just as worrying? [BLEEP!]

M Hello, and wake up. Graveland are more about Vikings and paganism and Nordic mythology than racism or Nazis or whatever you people are thinking. You might as well go ahead and ban all BLACK METAL, for fuck’s sakes. Get a life, get a hobby, get something else to do. [BLEEP!]

M So I heard this band Graveland had its show stopped, so of course I went onto the internet to find out more about them. That’s how censorship works, by the way—it makes people more interested in what is being censored. But that’s another story. So anyway, I played a few of their videos, which to me seem pretty average: growling and melodramatic black metal, big deal. But the funniest are the pictures of them in various Viking or black outfits and with swords and wearing makeup, trying to look, I don’t know, scary? What they look like is a bunch of pathetic POLISH WANKERS. A bunch of FRUITS. But like I say, I am not sure anyone needed to turn them into forbidden fruit. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. They say Trump is number 45. I think they got it wrong. Listen to the group that I believe he belongs to: Lincoln. Garfield. McKinley. Kennedy. Trump. If you’re smart, you know what this list means. Later. [BLEEP!]

M Hi, I am experiencing the funeral of hope and democracy. This morning the news came through and I WEPT FOR HILLARY. I spoke to certain people today and they all said that they also cried this morning. It’s as traumatizing as the Twin Towers, but it’s even more OMINOUS. It’s a sad day for all of us. Let’s just hope that he won’t do the harm that he promised to do. [BLEEP!]

M The last time America was GREAT was in 1972 in New York City when I saw the Rolling Stones give a free concert and I had my first joint and got my first BLOWJOB. That’s when America was great. [BLEEP!]

M Ok, so in this city we have so much poorly planned construction going on that you can’t drive anywhere without hitting orange cones and sitting in TOTAL TRAFFIC GRIDLOCK. So you go to take the metro and it fucking has a series of fucking breakdowns so you are standing in the metro waiting for a train that doesn’t come, which is even worse than sitting in your car, and in either case, you can’t get to where you want to go in any amount of reasonable time whatsoever. And meanwhile, HISTORIC BUILDINGS are burning down left and right. This is no way to run a city. [BLEEP!]

F Hello Rant Line™. I just wanted to say, you know who I feel sorry for is this poor girl who wanted to look after her friend’s TWO DOGS when her friend went on vacation, but she can’t, because she already has two dogs herself, and part of this new Montreal by-law, which was really supposed to be about pitbulls, is that one apartment can only have two dogs. So that means if she looked after her friend’s dogs, she would have four dogs it would be a $600 fine. Of course, her friend would rather have her dogs at her friend’s house, and not in a CAGE in a kennel, but no, this crazy law will stop that. So now her friend can’t go on vacation and nobody is happy, except maybe the PITBULLS, who are still running around without muzzles and getting ready to bite whoever they feel like. Well done everyone. [BLEEP!]

M Something really got on my nerves today. I want to send this rant out to TSN 690’s Mitch Melnick, the hugest BOB DYLAN fan in Montreal. You want to worship Bob Dylan, that son of a bitch prick who doesn’t even have the decency to go to the ceremony to receive his Nobel award? Seriously, Melnick? That’s who you want to give your fanfare to, a prick like that? Well you know what? He’s no BONO, that’s for sure. Bono was named Woman of the Year, recently—Bono’s a man last time I checked—and yet he still went to the ceremony to collect his award. Bono or Bob Dylan, for me it’s an easy choice—Bono all the way. Bob Dylan sucks! Mitch Melnick, are you listening? He cannot sing and his music is ANTIQUATED, it’s from some other era that is not even relevant today. You just keep going following Bob Dylan all over the world, Robert Zimmerman, go ahead, and I’ll listen to U2 and Bono. Cheers. [BLEEP!]

M This is to the dude who said there was no use for Mordechai Richler’s GAZEBO except to urinate on it. Well, good for you, but maybe you should go piss on something of Leonard Cohen’s if you want a real challenge. And maybe you should read some more and educate yourself. [starts singing] Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah. [BLEEP!]

[Ed’s note: To the girl who left a long and reasoned defense of Justin Trudeau’s record on human rights, Saudi Arabia and the BDS movement, we regret to inform you that an ULTRA-RARE malfunction of Rant Line™ technology resulted in the rant vanishing completely forever. If so inclined, please call back and leave it again.]

M So I just got back from the NETHERLANDS, I was there for 10 days. And everywhere I went they were all asking me, “Oh so you guys are legalizing IT next year and how’s that going to be and how are you guys going to sell it?” And I was telling everybody, I have NO CLUE. But one thing I do hope—I hope it is distributed in COFFEE SHOPS, so there can be somewhat of a little bit of a social interaction. And maybe it will be more of a FUN THING. I just hope somebody in the government pays attention to the Netherlands and maybe takes a hint or two on methods of distribution and so forth. Cafés! [BLEEP!]

M Hello Rant Line™. I just wanted to call and talk a bit about all the HALLOWEEN SLUTS. I know that is supposed to be empowering for women to dress up like a little slut and I know we are not supposed to SLUT SHAME them anymore. But is it ok if I dress up like DONALD TRUMP and grab a few of them by the pussy? [BLEEP!]

M Ok, I just saw that Montreal has 10 more years of CONSTRUCTION and roadwork planned—another decade of this shit! It can take you hours to get from the Plateau to Verdun. That’s not an exaggeration, that is how long it took me to get down to Verdun and back. Three hours! And we’re going to have 10 more years of this? And also they say the next two years are going to be even worse than the last two—I would not believe that possible. Look, they have got to get this shit organized, stop letting the construction companies work wherever they want and whenever they want. Or not work—half the time you drive by and the site is empty, just orange cones and piles of dirt and a hole. Nobody doing any work at all, or working at the pace of a snail. We got to do something about this, because the mayor has let this situation get totally out of control. We were a lot better off when the MAFIA was running the show. [BLEEP!]

F To the delusional girl who said the TRUDEAU HONEYMOON is going to go on forever and ever until the end of time, and how great and DREAMY he is, did she see the youth labour group who showed their backs to him and booed and heckled him? Did she hear about the big trade deal he did with Saudi Arabia despite their horrendous record on human rights? Did she know that he condemned the BDS movement against Israel—another cowardly move against an initiative designed to try to keep a rogue country in check. I could go on. You say the honeymoon will last forever—I say we’re still getting fucked. [BLEEP!]

F So I was at the Atwater metro today day and someone was handing something out. Usually I don’t take what people hand out, but this looked small and different, maybe interesting. And it was a little plastic bag and inside the bag was a SINGLE SLICE OF BREAD. Excuse me? The sticker on the ziplock bag—the whole thing looked pretty home made—said “Bon Matin” and “essayez maintenant” and that it has no artificial colour or flavours, so that’s all good, I guess. But what am I going to do with a single slice of bread? Take it home and have HALF A SANDWICH? Please, try to think these things through. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. I was just going through my PUBLISAC and I came to the flyer for one of the pharmacies in town and I see that the new Ghostbusters flick, the DVD, is $22.99. I always wondered what a piece of shit cost, and now I know. Let me get this straight: you think people are actually going to pay $23 for a DVD when the film in the cinema was cheaper and people didn’t go to see that? Why are they going to pay $23 to own a piece of shit? People, c’mon. 1984, Bill Murray, don’t mess with the best, don’t even try to make another one. Please, please, let it be. [BLEEP!]

M Just heard on the news that Phil Collins is coming out of retirement. Oh yippee! Oh isn’t that great! You know what Phil, I don’t caaaaare anymoooore. Seriously Phil, it was nice when you were gone. Didn’t you make enough money in the 80s? You know, I’m still trying to live down that I named my SECOND DAUGHTER Sussudio, and now you have to come out of retirement? It’s enough Phil. You made enough cash with Genesis, No Jacket Required, now there’s a jacket required. Please. And there’s that Martin guy, who does a tribute downtown—isn’t that enough? [BLEEP!]

M As to the comments on Mordecai Richler’s GAZEBO bestowed by the city in his name and the urge to piss on it, I concur totally. It’s way over the top. There are other writers in the city who have accomplished just as much, even though they are not as LUMINOUS. I found it really strange that the Mordecai Richler Library is actually a former Anglican church—it was bestowed on the city by the Anglicans. Like, that’s weird, it’s a clusterfuck of discombobulated combinations. I think if you are going to name something Mordecai Richler, you should submit a whole new edifice. Anyway, I’m up for Réjean Ducharme, the great Quebecois writer who wrote some of the finest work in the history of Quebec and deserves far more credit than he has been given. [BLEEP!]

M Hey hey Rant Line™. This is the dude who said there was no use for Mordecai Richler’s gazebo, except maybe to urinate all over it. Well folks— been there, done that! Early this morning. Had a lot to piss out, felt great. Now I can say I pissed all over a shit disturber’s gazebo. Arrivederci. [BLEEP!]

M So I also went to that Prophets of Rage show, and that thing sucked, man. An $80 ticket to see a rock ‘n’ roll CASH GRAB, with Chuck D fucking dancing around like a FOOL. I’ve seen Public Enemy, and that guy was STOIC on stage, not moving, telling the truth. I give it to B-Real, he did a good job. But other than that, it was a cash grab for young kids that fucking never heard the original Rage. [BLEEP!]

M Hello Rant Line™. I’m calling because I just found out, after 20 years, that Café Cleopatra actually might be a guy strip bar, with TITS and BITS. That’s like bullshit! What if I had had one day been so drunk that I walked in there wanting to see some LADY BITS, and then there was like a COCK in my face? Would I have gone home unscathed? I don’t think so. How has this not been reported on before? That’s some bullshit, Montreal. Get your shit together. If I go to a Toronto strip club, I’m not going to see cock! Fix your shit, Montreal. [BLEEP!]

F Hey, I keep reading in the paper, on the internet, all these journalists, NDPers, Conservative, saying, “The Trudeau HONEYMOON ends today.” I want everybody to take note—I want them to write this down—the Trudeau honeymoon ends when Justin Trudeau decides he no longer wants to be prime minister! That’s when it ends. You know why? It was the same thing in 1993 with Jean Chretien—yesterday’s man. What happened? Kim Campbell, down to two seats. 1997? Chretien—he called it to early, he’s going to be punished. He returned with a majority. 2000? Oh yeah, this guy Stockwell Day, on the WATERSKIS—he’s gonna beat him, he’s gonna beat him. And he was annihilated. And all last year—Trudeau is not ready, Trudeau’s going to get destroyed in the debates, Trudeau’s HAIR, Trudeau this, Trudeau that. He fucking destroyed all of them! He fucking destroyed them! So I am telling everyone, a word of warning: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is going to be a REALITY for at least a decade, and you guys need to deal with it. All the haters, all the angry Conservatives, all the self-righteous bicycle-riding, BIXI-worshipping, granola-eating NDPers—oh my god! Guys, you just got to embrace it. And it’s going to be GREAT. It’s going to be everything you ever dreamed of! It’s going to be… it’s going to be… I can’t even put it into words. I can’t even put it into words. [BLEEP!]

M Hey Rant Line™. Just checking in to make sure that everybody knows that you can’t bring your fucking DOG into a café or a restaurant. I thought everybody knew that. I love dogs, I have a dog, I don’t bring him into restaurants. [BLEEP!]

M This one really makes me scratch my head. That GAZEBO for Mordecai Richler. Really? $750,000? For a gazebo for somebody who already has a library on Parc Avenue and a beautiful mural in the Mile End that was just unveiled. Do we really need to spend that much money on an AUTHOR? For a gazebo? And anyway, couldn’t you do something nicer for him, like, I don’t know, name a bookstore after him? Something? But seriously, a gazebo? I’m never going to use that, except maybe to PISS on it. Seriously, when is anyone going to use a fricking gazebo? [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™ and hello kiddies. Just chiming in on the not-so-beloved coach of Les Canadiens, Mr. Michel Therrien. For all those people who believe that is was UNTRUE that he said Max Pacioretty was the worst captain in the history of le club de hockey Canadiens—it’s bullshit. He definitely did say it. And I quite concur—Max Pacioretty was the worst captain. It is probably the only time I have ever agreed with Michel Therrien. I just wish he had the balls—the CH BALLS—to admit he said it. It’s quite weird, somebody who grew up in ST. LEONARD—and he has no balls! Quite a rare occurrence! Well, Michel Therrien, I have less respect for you today than I even had yesterday, which was not that much to begin with. You are the primary reason that P. K. Subban has gone down to play COUNTRY MUSIC in Nashville. And until you are gone from the organization, I am not watching another game. I’d rather watch DRAGON’S DEN. I’d rather watch reruns of Dragon’s Den, with KEVIN O’LEARY, than watch Michel Therrien behind the bench. I don’t want to watch it. I am out. [BLEEP!]

M Hello my fellow Americans, this is The Donald speaking. The candidate for the presidency of the United States of America. I’ve reconsidered my options about putting a wall across Mexico, since I figure probably every Mexican could crawl under it and get a job wiping our BABIES’ ASSES and picking our vegetables and sifting through our garbage. I propose an alternative. We’re going to send them all to Quebec, in the north. And we’re going to rename Quebec and call it QUEBEXICO. Then they can bring all their beautiful colours and all their cuisine and their sing-songs and their children and all the love that they have to this cold hinterland and change North America’s footprint. Meanwhile, we’ll go down to Mexico and take their resources. What do you think? [BLEEP!]

M (w/British accent, via the seldom-used SpeakPipe feature at rantline.com) Hey. I just wanted to know what the hell is up with all the BOTULISM cases in Canada? If you put “Canada” and “botulism in the news” in Google and do a search, almost every one of your FISH PRODUCTS contains botulism! I really wanted to visit Canada because my friend lives there, but now, there’s no way I’m going to Canada. Ever! I’m even scared to say the word Canada. You should be ashamed of your country. [BLEEP!]

THIS WEEK: Prophets of Rage, Tragically Hip, testi kebob! PLUS: Pirates should sail the unfrozen seas of the Northwest Passage, woman advises!!

“edited” by AL SOUTH

M So I went to the Prophets of Rage show last night, and let me tell you, it was at the Bell Center, so the SOUND could have been a little bit better, but aside from that, for the song selection they played, for the mix of Public Enemy, Cypress Hill and Rage Against the Machine, as having never seen Rage Against the Machine live, it was a fucking good show. And fuck you I won’t do what you tell me. [BLEEP!]

M Unfortunately, I was not able to score tickets to the Tragically Hip show in Kingston. But thankfully the band and the CBC put the show on, and I watched it. I turned down the volume on the telly, cranked up the stereo and I watched… THE SHOW. What a show. My god, what a show. Set list impeccable, band on fire, Gordon Downie playing like his life depended on it, like it was his last show ever, but hopefully it wasn’t. I could see the show in a different way, watching it on TV. I could see al the crowd, and I said to myself, these are MY PEOPLE. The Tragically Hip crowd, that’s my people. Even though I wasn’t there with you in Kingston, I was there with you in spirit. All I can say is, Gord, everybody is praying for you and hopefully we get to see ONE LAST SHOW, maybe in Montreal. At Metropolis, or at Club Soda. One more show. I am sure they would love to do it. Anyways, thanks for all the memories, thanks for all the great tunes, thanks for being a great Canadian band who sings about the CANADIAN WAY OF LIFE. And those people in the crowd, all 7,000 of you, and all the 25,000 who were in the city square of Kingston, and all the people who were at the Monkland street festival, those are my people—I feel COMFORTABLE being in a Tragically Hip crowd. Thanks Tragically Hip. You guys rock. [BLEEP!]

M I don’t want to rain on the GREAT CANADIAN FUNERAL PARADE—and I watched that final concert and thought it was pretty good, you know, a nice concert—but I couldn’t help noticing that a whole lot of songs by the Tragically Hip all sound almost exactly the same. I just thought it was my PATRIOTIC DUTY to mention this. [BLEEP!]

F I just read that some kind of LOVE BOAT cruise is going to sail through the NORTHWEST PASSAGE, which should be FROZEN, obviously, and that a bunch of rich people are paying from $20,000 to $120,000 to go on it. I hope that money goes to climate change. Or what would be better, I hope some PIRATES start sailing through the Northwest Passage at the same time and rob the boat or ransack it or KEELHAUL it—or whatever it is pirates do—and steal all their money and JEWELS and give it all to climate change. [BLEEP!]

M Something I noticed yesterday when I was out and about in our lovely city downtown on a beautiful August day: why are so many people wearing CROCS? Especially downtown. Ok, if you are not standing in a GARDEN, doing your gardening, why are you wearing Crocs? Crocs are not meant to be worn as a fashion accessory. It’s a major fashion faux pas! And as for crocs on kids—what, you cannot afford to buy your kid a pair of shoes? You got your little kids out and about wearing Crocs? People, what is wrong with you? Crocs are not meant to be worn if you are not in the garden. And please, buy your kid a pair of shoes. Ah la MARONE. My god. [BLEEP!}

F Ok, so fuck the GUYS WHO NEVER ANSWER BACK. Like, they don’t have the BALLS to tell you that they don’t want to see you no more? Like, fuck them. Really. Is it that difficult to send a text saying, like, “no thank you.” Anyways, that’s my rant. Bye. [BLEEP!]

M Well it’s local to North America, but this Trump guy? I had dual citizenship but I’m glad I stuck with Canada. I can’t believe people are taking him seriously. Anyhow, you hear about J-Lo and P-Diddy—what about T-RUMP? Thank you. Bye. [BLEEP!]

M If Hilary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, how in the hell is she going to satisfy America? And I quote you verbatim from our friend Donald. The Donald. Now with a speech like that—it’s a dog and pony show. Dr. Strangelove. Donald, leave Hilary alone. People, just vote for her, that’s all. [BLEEP!]

F Hi Rant Line™. So my friend is sitting here with me, we’re at Pizza du Parc on Parc Avenue waiting for some pizza and she’s got a piece of DENTAL FLOSS stuck in her tooth, expressing of when you have CORN at the chalet, which we were just doing, and then she has corn stuck in her teeth and then she tries to get it out with anything and everything, but she can’t, and so then she uses dental floss and now she can’t get the dental floss out, so she’s been walking around with dental floss in her mouth and the toothpick thing doesn’t have toothpicks. So that’s the SITUATION. And she’s visiting from France and she’s having a great time except for this. Ok bye! [BLEEP!]

F So as somebody who grew up with SYRIAN FOOD I was very excited to see the cuisine featured in the latest issue. I can personally attest to its superiority over everything, including Lebanese. In an unrelated opinion: BOWLS are not foods. I keep seeing ads all around for bowls this and bowls that. Bowls are something you make when you have nothing in your fridge. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. Have you ever wondered when you are eating in a Turkish restaurant, when you are eating TESTI KEBOB, how can something be so delicious, so really, really tasty, and look like a SHIT. It looks like it just came out of your dog’s ass. But testi kebob is amazing. I love it. [BLEEP!]

THIS WEEK: Sheep on the city payroll, the Man Bun Game! PLUS: Pitbulls still perturbing!!

“edited” by AL SOUTH

F Here’s a little FAIRY TALE. Once upon a time, there was a little dog, a Yorkshire Terrier, named Princess. She was a very little dog, weighing about 12 pounds. She was 7 years old. A happy and friendly little dog. She lived in a place called Sherbrooke. Her owners loved her, everyone loved her. Then one day last week, she went out for her morning walk and along came a PITBULL. Now, this pitbull was on a leash, but it still proceeded to attack her. The pitbull grabbed Princess by the neck and strangled and bit her and KILLED her. When the police and SPCA came to get the dead Princess and put her in a box, Princess’s HEAD fell off. The pitbull, meanwhile, was calm and friendly, like nothing had happened. I’m sorry, I did not make this fairy tale up. [BLEEP!]

F Ok, so now Montreal has passed some new dog laws and supposedly there will be a whole new team of INSPECTORS out on the streets giving tickets. But the laws are mainly cracking down on dogs that aren’t registered! Is that the big problem? Sounds like a city cash grab to me. The law should be cracking down on the pitbulls that exist, whether they are registered or not! Especially the ones that still have their BALLS, like that ranter said last time. I mean, the inspectors will also be giving tickets to dogs that aren’t on leashes, which is ok I guess, but I think maybe DISCRIMINATES against friendly dogs. Friendly dogs are not the problem. And a pitbull that is running around off its leash, balls or not, shouldn’t get a ticket—it should be SHOT! My god, let’s have some common sense about this. [BLEEP!]

M Hey, I just saw a pitbull with its BALLS. There was a black guy walking it, he looked like a nice guy, and the pitbull looked friendly. It was wagging its tail and a couple of kids even stopped to pet it. Personally, I crossed the street. Who knows when the psychosis in its brain might snap?! It might see another dog, a squirrel, even a kid or person that TRIGGERS that instinct to attack and kill. Honestly, no offense to that guy and his dog, but we will be better off when they are gone. And their balls are gone. [BLEEP]

M Hello Rant Line™. I was very impressed with the rant about PITBULLS, or more to the point, about the owners of pitbulls being somewhat deficient in a variety of ways. In regards to the cops who allegedly BEAT UP and arrested a BLIND MAN in Cote des Neiges a couple of weeks back, as well as a black dude who fixes old cars and was singled out by the cops, here’s what I have to say. Fire all the uneducated cops. Take away their guns. Let them get pitbulls. Then ban all the pitbulls! Hurrah! [BLEEP!]

M Hi there, just wanted to say that today I saw something that I think was GOOD, but I am not totally sure. I was going down St. Joseph, quite far east, and there was a park, and in the park there was a little orange fence and inside the fence were seven SHEEP. I went over to have a look and I was told that these sheep are being EMPLOYED by the city to cut the grass! And that is what they seemed to be doing. But I mean, it was taking them a very long time! They had only cut—eaten—a fairly small patch of grass. If you think about it, it would take them forever to cut all the grass in the city. Longer than forever. Anyway, I am not even sure if this is true, that the city is actually paying sheep to do municipal maintenance? Are there more SHEEP CREWS out there? Or are there only seven sheep currently employed? How much are they getting paid? Nothing against sheep, and the right of sheep to work, but wouldn’t maybe, I dunno, an unemployed student like a chance to be paid to cut some grass? Just thinking out loud here. [BLEEP!]

F Hi, I have a question. I heard that everyone in the city is supposed to check to see if they have LEAD PIPES. So I checked my apartment and I think we do! But when I called my LANDLORD, he said… well, he said a few things. He said we did not have lead pipes, but even if we did, it didn’t matter, because the building has been around since 1925 and dozens or hundreds of people have lived here and they all turned out all right! So it doesn’t look like he wants to do anything about it. And I am already starting to feel a bit SICK from the lead [laughs]. So what can are my options here? Thanks. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. Don’t get me wrong, I am no fan of Hilary Clinton. But sometimes in life it is better the DEVIL we know than the devil we don’t. Trust me, you don not want a bonehead idiot LUNATIC like Donald Trump in the White House. Make America great again—damn right! But make sure it’s without Donald Trump. JACKASS. BUFFOON. JUGHEAD. Vote for Hilary! I’m Canadian, I can’t vote, but we’ll all be much better off without that bonehead in the White House. Vote Hilary! [BLEEP!]

M Hey Rant Line™, what’s up, what’s up. I just wanted to chime in on that new Ghostbusters film. I’m sorry, but Ghostbusters are DUDES. Point finale. There is no discussion about this—it’s non-negotiable. Ghostbusters are men. The fierce, the proud, the Ghostbusters. In 1984, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and…that black dude there… Ernie Hudson! C’mon, Ghostbusters are male. Nuff said. [BLEEP!]

M Just wanted to let you know I have invented a new game that I think everyone should play. You should probably only play while riding a bike or driving though, it might be dangerous while walking, you never know. Here it is: whenever you see a guy walking down the street with a MAN BUN, shout “MAN BUN! MAN BUN!” You know, in a sing-song voice, but like an ALERT. Try it, it’s fun. It could even help CURB THE TREND. [BLEEP!]

THIS WEEK: Pitbull balls, purple pants, P.K. Subban! PLUS: Shisha bars and Seal!!

“edited” by AL SOUTH

M So yeah, I think we all know what to do here. Take our PITBULLS, drop them off at Mayor Coderre’s house, and let him handle them from there. Maybe skip a few FEEDINGS, first. [BLEEP!]

F Well thank god the city is finally going to do something about those stupid, stupid pitbulls and the stupid, stupid people who own them. I saw some guy today with a pitbull—typical guy with a pitbull, he had tattoos, a shaved head, bad teeth and a pitbull—and the stupid dog still had its BALLS on. I felt like getting a pair of scissors and cutting them off on the spot. “Here doggie, nice doggie—SNIP.” The sooner the better, you know? But one thing I don’t understand is why the SPCA is against the city banning them. What are they thinking? I mean, I know the dogs are not all bad, but enough of them are! And I know not all owners are bad, but enough of them are! You think you can EDUCATE these owners? These owners have failed at being educated all their lives—take a look at them! You think they are suddenly going to learn that their dogs are stupid and they are stupid and that their lifestyle choices are completely wrong? Good luck. But anyway, with these pitbulls that are still here—get their balls off them, get muzzles on them—please, enforce this—and stop any new ones from coming in, however you plan to do that. Thank you. [BLEEP!]

F Hello, I am a born and raised Montrealer living downtown and I would like to know why is it that people can smoke in the SHISHA BARS that are popping up on every corner downtown but we can’t even smoke on a goddamned terrasse? Pretty soon we’re going to need a permit to smoke in our own damn HOUSE. Thank you, have a good day. [BLEEP!]

M This one goods out to the BONEHEAD metro musician, busker, whatever he is—listen buddy, when SEAL joins you on the sidewalk, you don’t sing! You just play the guitar, you accompany Seal. You shut your mouth, you do not sing at all. It’s Seal—you let Seal have the stage! Got it? You let Seal sing. You ruined the moment. You idiot. [BLEEP!]

M Ok, I was going through the Plateau the other day, up to Mile End, and I started to count the number of guys wearing PURPLE PANTS. I got to 10 and then I stopped. Fat guys, skinny guys, all in purple pants. I think that is the colour. Or is it mauve? You know the colour I mean. Will this stop soon? [BLEEP!]

F All this talk about YOGA, all these people doing yoga, running around with rolled up pants—it’s making me feel bad. And I am not even fat. I think I am even reasonably FLEXIBLE. But International Yoga Day, Midnight Yoga, Yoga in the Park, Drop-In Yoga, everyone seems to be doing yoga. I don’t think it was always like this, was it? What did people do before yoga? [BLEEP!]

M Seriously, we should get together and have a FUNERAL MARCH up St. Denis street. The street is dead. They have spent millions of millions of dollars trying to fix it, but they didn’t seem to notice they were killing it. So yeah, a New Orleans style funeral march. Put the street to rest. RIP. [BLEEP!]

M Greetings Rant Line™. This one is for Pete Townsend from the Who. I was listening to the album Tommy and I realized that “Pinball Wizard”—such a great song—just ends. It is very, very BORING. Pete, couldn’t you have made it end more spectacular? I expect more from you Pete. Couldn’t you have made it a bit more EXTRAVAGANT? Just a thought. [BLEEP!]

M Hey, I just wanted to say that I noticed that Cult Montreal puts a lot of women and even TRANS INDIVIDUALS on the cover more often than not and I just wanted to say keep up the good work. Great. Lovely. Amazing. Have yourselves a great day. [BLEEP!]

M I’ll tell you why P.K. Subban got traded. You heard it here first. Because he got bigger than the BRAND. The Habs are the brand, you can’t get bigger than the brand. It doesn’t matter that the brand sucks, that the brand has not won a CUP since 1993. The brand doesn’t care about Stanley Cups! The brand cares about the bottom line and not ROCKING THE BOAT. The brand is a boring, conservative corporation. An employee stands out, is too flamboyant, too COLOURFUL—the brand gets rid of them! So P.K. is gone and it is back to business as usual. Enjoy the Stanley Cups you will win P.K. You will deserve them. We won’t. The brand won’t. Fuck the brand. [BLEEP!]

M This is concerning the P.K. Subban trade, June 29, 2016. Marc Bergevin, I hope you get BOTULISM and I hope you die! You are a cocksucker, I hope you fucking die! Michel Therrien, take your lips off his cock! You have you lips so far down his cock!! Marc Bergevin, get botulism! Cocksuckers!! [BLEEP!]
