And In Other News, Chivalry Not Dead...

A Grim's Hall Reader? VC asks, you decide:

A 22-year-old Quebecois man is a on a quest to revive the values he says have been lost to the modern world: devotion, honesty, respect and goodness.

Taking matters into his own hands, Vincent Gabriel Kirouac has decided that by trekking across Canada, dressed in full knight regalia atop his trusty steed Coeur-de-Lion (Lionheart), he will single-handedly usher in a new era of chivalry.

...He was inspired by his devout Catholic faith to undertake the curious quest and he has not yet been disappointed.
A section of his website is devoted to religion, as people inspired by his journey often are called to prayer, wishing him only the best experiences on his trip.

This is only the first trip he plans to take. In 2014, Mr Kirouac will venture across Europe from Edinburgh to Jerusalem.
'I think this adventure is worth living. Not only for me but more because I hope to answer a problem that our society has: isolation,' he says.

'Holiness, Faith, Courage and Forgiveness, Respect, Humility, Justice, Devotion, Honesty, Goodness and prowess are the virtues of a sincere heart... [This] is the key of the project.'

Note the last name.

Well, is it Special Delivery as part of the Package Deal?

Some packages are more special than others.

Since you brought it up. The worlds largest wang filed for bankruptcy in 1992 and was acquired in 1999, disappearing into the Neather-lands.

Where else would the worlds largest wang end up?
