Go Greyhound — and leave the beheading to us

31Jul08

That’s it — I’m not going to Winnipeg. Some poor snoozing bastard on a bus west of Portage La Prairie en route to the provincial capital suddenly found his head tethered to his body by only his headphone cord when the stranger sitting beside him abruptly pulled out a Rambo-style hunting knife, stabbed him 40 or 50 times, and beheaded him. He shouldn’t have done that. Where I come from, you stab a guy 20 to 30 times max, then you give it a rest. Stabbing a guy 40 to 50 times and waving the head at the cops is just tacky showboating.

I do at least like the East Coast Canadianism in the following quote from one Nova Scotian witness: “The guy came to the front of the door with buddy’s head in his hands, decapitated. He dropped the head and went back and started cutting the body back up.” Holy shit, eh? Guess buddy over dere won’t be needing a toque this winter. 

If I ever make my pilgrimage out to Bill’s Sticky Fingers, I’m definitely taking the train.
