New Quebec Premier Bernard Landry has unveiled the key element
of developing winning conditions for the inevitable next referendum
on Quebec's status within the Canadian federation.
After becoming premier, Landry announced that a cadre of soveriegntists
will be trained on techniques of persuasion before moving out across
the province to communicate with the Quebec people.
Premier Landry has announced that a key element of the curriculum
of this 'Institut pour le formation des attitudes ce que nous
voulons' (Institute for the development of attitudes that we
want), militants to the cause will be given instruction on the figure
four leg lock, a wrestling maneuver to be applied to those who have
yet to become fully supportive of Quebec independence.
When properly applied, the move can also cause "a whole lot
of hurtin' in the legs," in the words of Premier Landry.

Landry then repeatedly spit on the floor and broke a full bottle
of beer open on his forehead.
Speaking into an oversized microphone, Quebec's opposition leader
Jean Charest told Quebec National Assembly host Maurice "Mad
Dog" Vachon that this new Parti Quebecois figure four leg lock
strategy is an "enormous waste of Quebec's public treasury."
"Premier Landry's figure four leg lock crap is yet another
example of the PQ government attemptin' to force sovereignty down
the throats of Quebec, when they ain't got no stomach for such a
wrenching, divisive debate, especially right now when we got so
