Nudist Marxist Taxidermy Club

Is Marxist Nudist Taxidermy Club Toronto's weirdest?

Lovers of the absurd often find themselves stranded amid a teaming mass of real, serious events and news items - not to mention awards shows. Now Toronto's Marxist Nudist Taxidermy Club, the campiest little extracurricular group you've never heard of, is about to host "The Minties," a "ceremony that will honour humanity's greatest achievements - as well as the Most Average Peanut Butter Sandwich."

This off-kilter awards show will be all in good fun and, in keeping with the club's mandate of all things wacky, strictly encourages fancy-dress as opposed to the nudity their name might imply. Some examples of the work of the Monty Python-esque Toronto-based club are below.

While you'll have to wait until Sunday, April 6th to see The Minties take over the Main Hall of the Tranzac - the show will be free to enter - for now you can make your nominations here. Categories include Best Intentions, Best Picture (of a Bear Fighting a Celebrity or Historical Figure), Best TV Show that You Think You Created, and Best Grocery List. I'm not sure where Best Fedora is on there. Maybe next year.
