Hockey’s pretty violent. It’s not quite as violent as war, or the systematic extermination of a race of people, but it’s still pretty violent.
It’s so violent, in fact, that I hereby nominate hockey as a replacement for war! International border disputes? Settle it on the rink! Looking to instigate a terror attack? Drop a puck outside a government building and challenge those bureaucrats to a pickup game! This would be a proactive and fun way to violently impose your will on others. And the people who’d be the best at viciously domineering the path of history? The Canadians! Everyone wins.
Amazing Über Powers?
“Ich gefoult viel dudes.”
“Ich habe viele Dudes gefoult”
Viele Dudes gefoulte ich.
Kill the ref!
Lately, the caption (or whatever you call it) is probably my favorite part of the whole comic. So much more fulfilling and hilarious than just saying that Wes got eaten by a giant spider or whatever. Today’s suggestion that hockey replace war is no exception!
Everyone wins, except that we’re all forced to speak French.
Interestingly enough, the law is catching up to the game: they’re actually starting to prosecute penalties causing injuries as if they’re aggravated assaults.
Didn’t that referee used to be a cop?
