The eyeless, handless smiling heroes of democracy

In all the excitement about the two-letter verboten word used on Mayor Gerald Tremblay's posters, no one noticed the frightening illustrations produced by the Montreal election bureau.

Every household in the city received the Elector's Manual in late September. The manual features illustrations of severely disfigured, hairless, and eyeless humans.

These stoic survivors are happy ambassadors for the city -- smiling their weird one-tooth smile and wearing short-sleeve shirts so we can get a better view of their bizarre-looking stumps.

Amazingly, they are able to put on a neck tie. God bless these brave souls.
