The world was shocked to learn a few weeks ago that actor Matthew Perry, much better known as Chandler Bing on the 90s sitcom Friends, once beat up the future Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in elementary school.
On April Fool’s Day, Trudeau playfully responded to the revelation on the Jimmy Kimmel show by challenging Perry to a rematch and tweeting ‘Who doesn’t want to punch Chandler Bing in the face?’.
Unfortunately, devotees of Friends in the United states are a very powerful lobby with a very simplistic sense of humor. They took the Canadian Prime Minister at his word and are demanding an immediate military response.
When informed that a sizable number of US Citizens wanted to attack Canada, President Trump didn’t even wait to hear the reason why before saying ‘Let’s do it’.
The looming conflict is not looking good for Canada, even when taking into account the incompetence of the current US Political leadership, as the Canadian military will be vastly outgunned in every area.
At last word, Trudeau was still hoping common sense will prevail, especially with someone reasonable being in charge of the Department of Defense.
“I’m just hoping General Mattis is more of a Seinfeld fan.”
