The last Prairie Dog had two sections: the regular paper and a Junofest guide. The sections were paginated separately, but as Alert Wiener Dwayne (and others) pointed out, our contents page listed numbers all the way up to 44, even though the highest page number you’d find in the paper was page 24 (the length of the main section). OH, THE HORROR. Anyway, we gave Dwayne $10 and a Typo Wiener T-shirt.
Dwayne is a civil servant who likes “Prairie Dog, dining out, live theatre, the RSO, the RPL theatre, movies, musical happenings and browsing through good antique shops.” He’s also possibly the first Typo Wiener to compliment our “groovy” covers. Thanks!
Dwayne will spend his prize money on weekend soup and breakfast. Look for him at his favourite table (48, next to the window) in his favourite diner (a SECRET).
