*** The Tin Soldier is intended to be a humorous and entertaining look at issues and events at the University of Waterloo. As such articles should not be taken to represent real events or opinions, and they should not be associated with the University of Waterloo staff or administration in any way.

However, the best and easiest way to fill a large gap is just to add a semi-relevant picture into the article.
