Maxed Out 

A heroic effort from the West Side

Dave: What are you talking about? I’ve never been on the campaign trail and I’ve never said whatever you just said I said because frankly, I don’t even know what you’re talking about.

Max: Wow, Dave, you’re a natural politician. It’s as though you’ve been ducking tough questions your whole life. Well, if you don’t want to talk about that, what about the Olympics™? Is it true you said the most memorable thing we could do, now that we’ve exposed the 2010 Olympics™ for the green sham it really is, is get all the potheads in town to lay down a pall of smoke so thick during the Olympics™ it’d be visible from space, thereby rendering it impossible for any athlete competing in Whistler to pass a drug test and vindicating Ross’s story?

Dave: No, I didn’t say that.

Max: Oh.

Dave: I think you said that.

Max: Hmmm. I knew I’d heard it somewhere. Well then, isn’t it true you claimed solidarity with CUPE local 2010 in their attempt to negotiate a first contract that included a $4,000 "Whistler premium" since it was Muni Hall itself that established precedence for a Whistler premium when it opened the vaults for certain, well-known, senior managers who get paid way more than people holding similar positions in similar size towns just because it’s so expensive to live in Whistler?

Dave: No. I said I’d like an extra $4,000 too. You got a match?

Max: No, why?

Dave: Just wondering.

Max: Well, good luck with your campaign for mayor, Dave. Whistler needs more heroes. I hear your party headquarters is the smoking room at Tapley’s in case people want to come by and make donations or volunteer for your campaign.

Dave: Get stuffed. I’m not running for mayor.

Max: Yeah, what a kidder.
