The Quebecois are really weird

Parti Quebecois leader Andre Boisclair appeared in a political parody of Brokeback Mountain:
In the sketch, the Canadian prime minister and the U.S. president are portrayed naked from the waist up in a tent. Images of their faces are attached to actors' bodies. Bush at one point throws cherries at Harper's nipples which are covered with whipped cream. After the cherries land on the nipples, Boisclair is seen opening the tent flap and saying that Quebec isn't getting involved in that.
This might be some of that really weird allegorical French film, like the whipped cream represents free-trade agreements between the US and Canada, and the cherries have something to do with the war in Afganistan....

Or maybe the joke is that Boisclair's name starts with the French word for "wood".
