It’s probably better if I don’t ask anyone whatever became of Expo Ernie. My guess is he just vanished into the motivational speaker circuit, like most B-List mascots do, but he *was* famous in the mid-80s so things could just as easily have gone really bad for him; a Gary Busey kind of bad.

Hey, countries that dropped atomic bombs, napalmed villages, practice extraordinary renditions, keep political prisoners without charge, bulldoze homes for collective punishment, spy on your own people, carry out extrajudicial executions by drone, waterboard, have a legacy of residential schools, store weaponized smallpox, import poverty-wage labourers, or still use white phosphorous munitions:

There were self-styled backyard barbecue kings walking away from stampede 2014 feeling really inadequate, I guarantee it.
