My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Why are you working on Victoria Day? It was 95 years ago today that Queen Victoria died on the battlefields of World War I, defending our freedoms from the bloodthirsty Hun. Do you really want to dishonour that sacrifice?
Haha yes! Shoot ’em up was so rad!
Also mitchell your history is wrong, that’s the day that Queen Victoria murdered Archduke Franz Ferdinand to start WWI, setting the scene for WWII, which let us kill nazis, because that’s the most fun the world’s had in a few hundred years.
Don’t you mean MarEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Murphy?
Well yeah, of course Queen Victoria instigated World War I by killing Franz Ferdinand. But the British government’s never going to cop to that by making it into a public holiday. So they sent her into battle instead in order to have a legit excuse to give people the day off.
