A small Manitoba town was put on the map Monday night when its mayor was featured on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

During a comedy segment called “Small Town News,” Letterman held up a clipping from the Winnipeg Free Press featuring Gary Williams, the mayor of Waskada, Manitoba.
“He kind of looks like me,” Letterman quipped, in which viewers send in newspaper clippings of amusing bits of information, or funny misprints.
The photo of Williams originally ran in the July 17, 2010 edition of the Free Press surrounding a story on the town’s tiny population — only 199.
Waskada is located about 350 km southwest of Winnipeg.
