Communism Is VERY SERIOUS!

scene: I’m walking past an anti-war protest along Burrard St, just outside of my place. I’m wearing my Communist Party t-shirt. A protester, marching underneath a ‘Communist Party of Canada’ banner, crosses Burrard to talk to me.

Marcher: That shirt’s not funny.

Myself: Yes it is!

The marchers gives me an angry look, then hurries back to his comrades. He and a female compatriot talk to each other, gesturing at me. I walk home.
