Bob Kinnear’s Funny Bogus Wikipedia Entry

by Joey deVilla on April 18, 2008

Last night, someone frustrated with the impending public transit strike here in Accordion City (slated to start at 4 a.m. Monday if this weekend’s negotiations fail) decided to do a little creative editing of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113 leader Bob Kinnear’s entry in Wikipedia. Knowing the edit would be corrected in short order and wanting to preserve this for posterity, I took a screenshot of the page, which appears below:

LOL. Just a little frustrated!

I don’t get people whining about the uncertainty, though. Act as if the strike was 100% certainty. Get your telecommute, carpool or bike route sorted out, and assume that you will be executing on that contingency plan Monday and Tuesday regardless of what the TTC decides to do. It’s not rocket science.

You didn’t have to take a screenshot–you can always link to an old revision on Wikipedia. For instance, this revision can be read here:
