Andrew Scheer's Twitter Transformed Into A Simpsons Fan Account Last Night - 2019-09-25
With the 2019 federal election now less than one short month away, Canada's party leaders are doing whatever they can to round-up some last minute support from potential voters. For Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, this meant taking to Twitter to make several references from The Simpsons while on the campaign trial, although his joke about the 'Wonderbat' was perhaps a 'swing and a miss!'
Late on Tuesday evening, the Conservative leader made his first reference to The Simpsons, by sharing a picture of himself smiling, and holding a shiny new baseball bat in his hands. He added the caption, "I will call it "Wonderbat," alongside the lightning-bolt emoji.
The post is believed to be a reference to an episode of The Simpsons, during which Homer tells Bart the story of his own "Wonderbat," that was created from wood that had been struck by lightning.
