Season 5, Episode 11: Canadian Labour Day Holiday Special!

An unrelievedly clever episode, this half-hour of heartless joy is a journey into the history—present and future—of Emily Wellingtonford, Canadian Mine Owner and Usurer. From her early childhood episodes of gun play, to her young womanhood in pursuit of unwholesome pleasures, to her mature years as the head of corn-based snack product empire, we’re led through Emily’s history/dream life by famed radio host ghost, Anders Lurkawhile. See the miners’ children in their paddock!  Attend the very first encounter between Emily Wellingtonford and Reggie Forge (co-founder and sole proprietor of the Ethics Lite® System)! It’s the lighter side of capitalist exploitation, Canadian style.
