Margaret Atwood meets Doug Ford in person; universe refuses to explode

If you’re tired of reading stories about big idea man Doug Ford and literary nobody Margaret Atwood, you can thank Councillor Michael Thompson for writing what should be the final chapter on their public spat when he introduced the pair to one another at a party earlier this week. According to Thompson, “They were warm and charming and relaxed together.” Atwood took to Twitter to register her excitement in the form of a just-intelligible tweet where she channels her inner pre-teen to eerie effect: “T-pals, UnBLeevAbul! I just met D. Ford! At a NotTimmies Arts Party! (He knows what I look like now! :D) Sez #librarieswill not be cut! :D” Thank you, Councillor Thompson. Thank you.
