Ha ha ha ha ha!
Ah, the good old days when Canadians had a sense of humor. (But this is still my favorite.)
That could be an invention to remake the Hog Belly Futures... really good low sodium Ham. The turkey ham and turkey bacon is good, but the processors salt that up pretty high too. The world awaits, Mr Hormel.
I was watching KITH last night on Netflix. That's a plate of shrimp, as they say in Repo Man.The larger question is, why have we always farmed out our humor jobs to Canadians when we have so many Americans in need of comedy work? When even brilliant dramatic actors like William Shatner are able to get more work as comedians than, say, Rosie O'Donnell, then something is very wrong with the funniness of American society.I, for one, blame Sarah Palin.(Note: two damned spaces after a period, the way God intended us to type.)

I had to go watch the clip again to remember what made me laugh out loud.Goddam bastard brine!
"I, for one, blame Sarah Palin."Are you saying Alaskans are kind of Canadians?
Voodoo pork, yum... I need a nice slice of Carolina prosciutto tonight.Ah yes, the Kids in the Hall... gotta be one of the best late night comedy shows, evah. My particular favorite is the Billy Dreamer sketch. It makes me realize mediocrity is just fine.

Like the Children of Israel wandering in the wilderness, they're on a forty year pilgrimage of lefty earnestness and solemnity, which is about at the half way point. In about twenty more years they'll shake off the shackles and lighten up, though Canada will be throughly ruined well before the Canadian temperament comes around.Canadians are actually very lethargic politically and culturally. Hell, it took them a hundred and fifty years to get around to establishing a national identity, and they had to march to the Somme and Passchendale Ridge to do it. (And it's still a kind of negative identity -- the non-American Americans, the descendants of colonists who lacked sufficient imagination to invent a new kind of nation) The Canadian torpor is so profound that they'll experience a tremendous degradation in liberty and not even realize the danger until its too late. Mark Stein's experiences are proof of that. The Canadian is an odd kind of frog, boil him slow or boil him quick, he just sits in the pot and blithely stews.
"...a kind of negative identity -- the non-American Americans,""Americans without guns", is how I think a different KITH sketch put it.
Was that clip supposed to be funny?Except for the annoying laugh track where the (supposed) audience is belly laughing at nothing all the way through, I would be hard to tell.I didn't find one thing funny about it. Kept waiting for it to ge humorous but it never did.In fact about half way through, I was hoping that the wife character would break out a gun and shoot the asshole. just to shut him up.
I will not stop rockin' in your classroom Mr. Gorgachuk!
Couple whacks with a leg of lamb would suffice.
"I will not stop rockin' in your classroom Mr. Gorgachuk!"Classic. I've got to head over to YouTube/whatever and reacquaint myself with The Kids In Ihe Hall. It's been years.
I also didn't see what was funny in this skit. It was boring and repetitive. The man playing the husband was annoying, and the man playing the wife didn't seem to be having much fun with the part, in part because the dialogue was dull (contrasting this with old Monty Python episodes, where the cast usually seemed to have a lot of fun with their female roles).
"Lets be fair to the Ham...."LOL!!
I fully intend to own both the entire KitH and News Radio collections before I die. Through in WKRP and Taxi for good measure.
