Torontoist is ending the year by naming our Heroes and Villains of 2007––the people, places, and things that we’ve either fallen head over heels in love with or developed uncontrollable rage towards over the past twelve months. Get your dose, starting Boxing Day and running into the new year, three times a day––sunrise, noon, and sunset.
A couple of months back, a chap named Simon “Pee-Pee” Harris lost his wallet. Luckily for us, the person that found the wallet posted about it on Craigslist, enlightening us all to the enigma that is Pee-Pee. Pee-Pee’s a complicated fellow; a man of contradictions. He’s a sexually promiscuous weed-smoker, and a member of the Conservative Party. He’s also a white supremacist, which didn’t much impress the person who found the wallet; they kindly offered to throw a party in his honor, with “music, games, fags, dykes, people of indeterminate-at-a-glance gender, blacks, asians, [and] indians (both kinds!)” We never found out if Pee-Pee showed up to the party, but we can only imagine the good times that ensued.
Pee-Pee is a villain of 2007 because he’s a racist, and because his name is Pee-Pee, but mostly because we’re hoping the embarrassment of having this posted about twice will encourage him to see the error of his ways. It’s a new year, Simon. Let’s leave Pee-Pee behind in 2007.
