Ontario charged after beating a bear to death with a rock. He told you he was hardcore

An Ontario man has been charged after he hit a bear with his car and then proceeded to get out of the car and best the bear to death with a rock. Ya know, the kind of stuff that Canadians do because they just don’t give a fuck like that.

Also, Rob Ford says he’s too busy eating his wife’s pussy to eat anyone else’s pussy. This man is legend.

Yup, that’s what crack smoking, gang sign throwing Toronto mayor Rob Ford said at a press conference this morning. I wouldn’t feel right if I forgot to post this today. This fucker is surreal. The press conference was to address allegations Ford had made inappropriate statements about a staffer.

His words: “Oh and the last thing was Olivia Gondek, it says it says that I wanted to eat her pussy. Olivia Gondek. I’ve never said that in my life to her. I would never do that. I’m happily married. I’ve got more than enough to eat at home. Thank you very much.”

Even better, later today he completely denied saying that. At a live, televised press conference.

IHC After Dark short films: “Free Door”

Michael Schmidt’s short film “Free Door” is a comedy that examines Canada’s famed politeness.

When Jim happens upon a door by the side of the road, he approaches the presumed owner to ask if he can take it.  But this simple request turns complicated when the owner informs Jim the “free door” is not for him.  What results is an absurdist comedy about seizing the opportunities that are presented to us, and the regrets, and repercussions, of when we do not.

Now playing for a limited time at the NSI Online Film Festival.
