A Cougar Convention in Toronto


Toronto will see an influx of cougars tomorrow as the Cougar Convention meets for the first time in Toronto at Tattoo Rock Parlour on Queen.

(Think Demi Moore, Madonna, or Courtney Cox in that terrible, terrible sitcom.)

"In the olden days when we would do these cougar parties, we always got too many women, we couldn't find any guys who were willing to come and date older women," Rich Gosse, a self-proclaimed romance expert, told the Toronto Star. "They were too embarrassed to admit they were dating a woman as old as their mothers. That all changed. Now, there's actually a greater demand among the cubs for the cougars."

One lucky cougar will be crowned Miss Cougar Canada based on votes by the "cubs," who are the single, younger men attending the event. Women must be over 35 and legally single.

The event starts at 7 p.m. tomorrow evening. Better start listening to Rod Stewart's "Maggie May" now.
