G20 law enforcement officials were handed all kinds of ruthlessly draconian completely understandable new powers to deal with individuals unwilling to show ID to cops. The law that allowed these powers was passed secretly by the Ontario government, leading us to wonder what other activities have been surreptitiously made illegal for the G20 weekend. Some ideas:

  • Referring to Stephen Harper’s hair as “Lego-like”
  • Bringing up this picture of Angela Merkel’s pit stain
  • Breathing on a police officer
  • Making fun of a police officer’s biking shorts
  • Holding a reusable coffee cup (drinking coffee brewed at home will be taken as an anti-capitalist protest)
  • Talking to Rolling Stone magazine
  • Not sleeping with Silvio Berlusconi
  • Wielding a crossbow or an axe, or any other medieval weaponry
  • Having misspelled words on protest signs (we’re actually grateful for this one)
  • Cell phones
  • Being taller than Nicolas Sarkozy
  • Claiming Pittsburgh or London police are hotter than Toronto’s
  • Singing a certain Naughty by Nature hit from 1991
