Tarheel Slim was born in Filmores Strip Club in 1983. In 1991 he moved to a Chinatown opium den in New York City where he worked as a janitor and general labourer until 2001, when he decided to pursue a journalism degree from Ryerson University. Slim quickly assessed the opportunities available in the field and is now serving as an ionized foot-bath spa attendant.
Reg Mactier was conceived in the sub-basement of the Waverly Hotel. A practitioner of ‘Speculative journalism’, a source-less variety practised from the comfort of one’s own apartment, he feigns deafness whenever the subject of the Toronto Blue Jays is raised and is a citizen of the world, at least as far as his expired passport is concerned.
