The third and last part of this little 3-part story about the Northwest Rebellion, not that you have to read the first to read this, they aren't connected. This is when Louis Riel was being hanged, as spoken by someone really outrageous watching.

He is being called "christ" because Louis Riel, when he came back for the second rebellion, came up with some theory that the First Nations was a lost tribe of Israel or some other shananigan. The narator here greatly exagerates and ridicules this by calling him "christ himself."

Looey, they called him
I believe they meant Loony

Ladies and gentlemen
Here stands Christ himself
A mere laughing matter
To be hanged today like a gentleman
A real miracle

The noose tightens

If natural selection was dirt
I would make him eat it

Who knew both Sons of Men
Could die of suffocation
One of the lungs, one of the neck
A real miracle

His mouth gapes
His eyes bulge
Boy, what a view

Ladies and gentlemen
Behold Christ himself
