And lo, de Maisonneuve climbed the royal mountain and erected a sweet 30-meter-tall, illuminated iron cross and returned with two tablets. The hippies, LARPers, and hipsters clamored around him with their Pabst Blue beers, guitar, and Frisbees, whereupon he gave them several badass street names and these 20 Montreal Commandments:
1. Pick a side between St. Viateur and Fairmount bagels
But eat both of them anyways.
2. Bear witness to the city's tremendous nightlife
And party whenever possible.
3. Go forth and BIXI
Or lose your public bike sharing system privileges to bankruptcy forevermore.
