Is this a joke?!

Steve Gibson, the medicinal marijuana user who's got the owner of Gator Ted's Tap and Grill stuck between a rock and a hard place (i.e. losing his liquor license or being branded a hate criminal by the Ontario Human Rights Commission) is quoted in the Star today as follows (my emphasis):

“People didn’t like the way I smell,” the [medicinal marijuana] smoker, Steve Gibson, acknowledged of one complaint against him from fellow patrons.

“But I don’t like a lot of smells either,” he said. “I can’t bare to stand near some chicks, they’ve got so much perfume on, let alone some ethnics that I don’t like the smell of that much.”

Bravo, Barbara Hall! Nothing tellingly absurd about this. No!
