Jacques 2003 Smith NDP War

For unwarped view click on image.

Why it’s funny:
In the province of Ontario (Canada) legislature, the perennial 3rd place party, the NDP, failed to achieve official party status. Since their elected Members of Provincial Parliament could no longer say they represented the NDP, some elected members changed their last name to NDP to keep the party’s presence visible. In a slightly earlier scandal in Saskatchewan (Canada). the Progressive Conservative party was found keeping a list of all NDP party members in that province. Smith is the most common surname in the English speaking world, followed by Johnson.
