Say, why don't you drill a hole in yourself and let the sap run out?

The Toronto Star reports that Canadian satirists are positively drooling at the possibility that Americans might actually elect Mike Huckabee, a man who comedian Rick Mercer tricked a few years ago into making a televised appeal to save Canada's "National Igloo", which he convinced Huckabee is where the Canadian Parliament meets. In Huckabee's defense, if God had wanted him to know anything about Canada, he would have put it in the Bible.

Subsequently, Arkansas reporters called Mercer and there were requests for the clip.

He didn't return the calls and didn't surrender the clip.


Was this televised?

Yeah, I was confused about that too after reading the article. I didn't see it and Claire didn't either. But, apparently it was on the show. I'll try to post the clip from You Tube.

Note: Rick Mercer does this bit on his show in which he quizes Americans on the street on their knowledge about Canada. It's basically the same as "Jay Walking" on the Leno show. Mercer's been doing it for years.

Well, when we can chip the ice off the generator and keep the moose from trying to mate with the satelite dish...
