Congratulations America

We all said that you would not be able to find someone more fucking stupid than that twat Bush, but (thanks to my friend Son of Groucho for bringing this to my attention) it looks as if we were wrong.

He seems like a friendly kinda guy.

MJ said...

Rick Mercer (the interviewer in this segment) is the reason I don't throw out my TV.

Well that and Corrie.

Richard said...

Is he the one who asks Americans to stick a pin in France on a map and they all select Australia? I like him.

MJ said...

Richard: Yes, that's him.

His regular segment on "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" was called "Talking to Americans" and he did a one-hour special on it as well.

Now he's the host of the Rick Mercer Report, a blend of news and comedy sketches, often skewering Canadian politics.

What the HUCKabee!
The scary part is that Governor Huckleberry Hound won the first round of the Republican nominations for President in Iowa!

Now you know what we have to put up need to look up the segment where Mercer tells them that Canada got it's first McDonalds..boy were they excited for us.

I am with King Lucien Bonhomme about being hesitant to join North America. Would you mind if we joined Europe instead?

Blame Canada
Sheila: Times have changed
Our kids are getting worse
They won't obey their parents
They just want to fart and curse!
Sharon: Should we blame the government?
Liane: Or blame society?
Dads: Or should we blame the images on TV?
Sheila: No, blame Canada
Everyone: Blame Canada
Sheila: With all their beady little eyes
And flapping heads so full of lies
Everyone: Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Sheila: We need to form a full assault
Everyone: It's Canada's fault!
Sharon: Don't blame me
For my son Stan
He saw the damn cartoon
And now he's off to join the Klan!
Liane: And my boy Eric once
Had my picture on his shelf
But now when I see him he tells me to fuck myself!
Sheila: Well, blame Canada
Everyone: Blame Canada
Sheila: It seems that everything's gone wrong
Since Canada came along
Everyone: Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Copy Guy: They're not even a real country anyway
Ms. McCormick: My son could've been a doctor or a lawyer rich and true,
Instead he burned up like a piggy on the barbecue
Everyone: Should we blame the matches?
Should we blame the fire?
Or the doctors who allowed him to expire?
Sheila: heck no!
Everyone: Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Sheila: With all their hockey hullabaloo
Liane: And that bitch Anne Murray too
Everyone: Blame Canada
Shame on Canada
The smut we must stop
The trash we must bash
The Laughter and fun
Must all be undone
We must blame them and cause a fuss
Before somebody thinks of blaming uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuus!!!!

Never underestimate the intelligence of the U.S. public and you'll probably make a lot of money. I don't see the profit in this, but it's got to be there somewhere.

That was a great clip, Rick Mercer always makes me laugh. One of my favorite episodes had him interviewing people and telling them about the shameful Canadian practice of putting elderly people out on ice floes instead of old age homes. He was trying to get some public outrage going and an awful lot of people went for it!!

Sorry I haven't visited for awhile. The door to my igloo froze shut and I couldn't get out.

Oh come on now, this is Arkansas we're talking about. As I mentioned on my old blog when writing about my journey across the country, I now respect Bill Clinton more from having come from such a crappy state. This is like picking on the dumbest part of (insert most redneckish part of Scotland here).

I personally think that Mitt Romney is even dumber. I concluded this after he got extremely angry that Putin was picked as Time magazine's Man of the Year. Apparently he thinks it's supposed to go to the nicest person or something.

Oh and Lin wins the thread.

Adamy, Adamy, Adamy, have we touched a raw nerve. Firstly, how can you say that about Arkansas when you have West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee? Secondly, there are no rednecks in Scotland; the sun never shines for that long. You probably meant Cornwall, but Tom lives near there, so we don't mention it, so let's say Norfolk.
Thirdly, they are all fucking dumb - THEY ARE REPUBLICANS.
Fourthly I get to give the awards on this blog. In this case there are no winners or losers, this is the People's Republic of Kaliyuga, and we are all of equal worth.
How did your date go?

You didn't know about Rick Mercer? Damn, man! You need to read my blog more; I've posted half of Talking to Americans at least. It broke my heart when I found out he didn't fly my airline.

Vicus Scurra said...

Yes, RC, I like him on your blog - did you post this one though? I must have missed it.
