Formerly naked women at the Poor No More rally

Mary Walsh, from This Hour Has 22 Minutes

Mary Walsh

GC and I went to an event on Saturday for the documentary-in-the-making, Poor No More. Basically it was a chili lunch in a church basement with Mary Walsh (creator of This Hour Has 22 Minutes), followed by a march to Parliament Hill and some coordinated chanting for the movie cameras.

While we were sitting in the basement eating chili and people-watching, GC nudged me and said “Does that woman over there look familiar?”

“Yes,” I said, “We saw her naked at the naked bike ride.”

We then both remembered her naked for a few seconds.

“How many women in this room,” I asked, “Have you seen naked?”

GC surveyed the room and counted on his fingers.

“Two,” he announced.

I won that contest, because there was a woman there whom I recognized as a legally-blind exotic dancer at the Alex Hotel circa 1978, during its brief and unsuccessful attempt to turn itself into a strip joint.

Mary Walsh had us both beat though, because she’s been photographed with 50 naked Newfoundlanders.
