Parliament Fighter II (Round 2)

Parliament Fighter II (Round 2)
  •  emoticon

Well my predictions were way off, along with most of Canada’s. Plucky young Justin Trudeau actually ended up walloping Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau in their big charity fight last night, with the ref calling the match in the third round. Apparently it was all about stamina; Brazeau quickly tired himself out by coming on too strong too fast, while Trudeau’s endurance proved to be his greatest asset.

So now we’ve got a fresh new perspective on event the press has already thoroughly methaphored the crap out of. Maybe the Liberals aren’t such hapless, doddering weaklings after all. Just give them time, and they’ll eventually come from behind and turn the Tories’s own strength into a form of counterattack.

Or something.

    It's because you drew the guy as Vega, who is FAR too awesome to be defeated by Zangief ;)

    Maybe something about media narratives being rather useless?

    Ray's pose is perfect.

  3. Rubber Gym Mats

    A gym's floor is an important consideration in regards to what the enclosure is being used for and if the floor is appropriate in preventing injury. A gym offering dance classes or aerobics will frequently use a wooden floor while a gym more focused on combat sports such as jiu-jitsu will use rubber floors or mats instead.

    I have tons of respect for Justin Trudeau now. He is a god.

    I wonder what the "Friendship" ending would have gone like…

    I missed the fight. Is that how Trudeau won? He "methaphored the crap out of" Brazeau?

  7. Kwyjor

    Oh, nicely done, sir.

    I'm trying to think of who the guy on the ship is. Q from SFIII? Or a more fiendish political reference?

    …Why are they playing Sonic and Knuckles?

  9. ThePsudo

    Why can't everyone get over the fact that the cartridge is Sonic and Knuckles? Between this and the previous comic, there were something like 9 (?) comments to that effect.

    For this comic, the answer has to be "to match round 1." I imagine the answer for round 1 was "Because it's funny." Now leave it alone, world!

  10. Internationalist

    That makes a modicum of sense (I missed that), but the reason I was really confused is because I expected a game out of the top of it, like "Parl Fighter 2: The Canadian Warrior" or something like that.

    I really just thought it was an incredibly subtle in-joke that most people wouldn't notice. But I was wrong!

    "Trudeau’s endurance proved to be his greatest asset."

    Don't forget reach.

    It is true.

    The subsequent time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my option to read, however I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you possibly can repair when you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
