Well, mate, those of us who live over here are quite aware that there are stupid people among us. Do you have some special reason for thinking this is an inherent aspect of our national character, as distinguished from being an attribute of any human population greater than 1 (or perhaps you haven't experienced any)? Or are you just being a smartass jerkoff whose mouth is bigger than his brain?

Dear Rick Mercer :

I have enjoyed much of your work, especially at 22 Minutes. However, I find your 22 Minutes' segments entitled "Talking To Americans" not only childish and distasteful, but, more often than not, obviously contrived and poorly edited. You would be wise to drop this... this... ok, I'll say it, utter fucking nonsense which alienates not just the Yanks, but any and all Canadians with two clues.

I must add, though, on the other side of the coin, the segment with Bush during the campaign was priceless because it was not contrived nor childish, but, rather, showed how ignorant the new president really is.

Maybe we could do a show entitled, "Talking to Rick's Newfie Buddies" ? Give 'er up, bye - she's just nare funny !

Nothing like stirring up cross-border rivalries. Maybe he's trying to start a war? Not sure what that would accomplish, though. If I recall, the last war between us (The Pig War, mid 1800s, between Washington and B.C.) ended it something of a draw.

Rick: I guess I am stupid, because I find your post most confusing. When you say watch your show "here" do you mean in your country (whatever that may be)?

When you say "9, 9:30" do you mean 9 or 9:30? Is that your time? If so, what zone are you broadcasting from?

And what is CBC-TV? I haven't had a TV in my home since 1958, so I am not hep to the jive re TV. (If you hang around folkies much, you will find that not bothering with TV is quite common.)

Well, gotta run. It's too nice a day to waste on people like you.

Then we're still ahead. Careful, or we'll piss in your water.

I'm serious. If you don't stop courting the PQ, we'll have no recourse but to separate THEIR ass and take back the water resources that will eventually feed the eastern seaboard of the US... the largest civil engineering project the world has ever seen is underway and has been for a lot of years. You may have seen it in Ahhnold's movie where the german guy steals a whack of gold and transports it through the water supply tunnels. This system will eventually be fed from northern Quebec... er, Old Quebec.

Rick,

Doesn't look like your show is getting any rave reviews yet, but the show hasn't even aired. I think those of us who haven't seen this special should reserve judgement. I don't watch TV much, but I will try to tape it. I still like going to the movies and Sunday night I will be watching "O Brother, Where Art Thou" for the second time. Good luck Rick.

Alex... that was to Yanks in general. Your political leaders are courting the PQ's, Parti Quebecois, who have just won another election in La Belle Province and have vowed, AGAIN, to separate. Not two clues twixt the lot.

But politics is politics, you know. Whoever can separate the big Q from Canada will be rich beyond their wildest dreams over the water rights alone. IF... IF .... IF they can leave without fulfilling the agreement they signed when they entered confederation, which is to relinquish Ungava and Prince Rupert's Land. Anyway, it's a political type thread topic and it's extremely upsetting to every single Canadian, PQ's with no brains included, so that's the end of my discussing it. 'Cept to say that Jacques Parizeau said there would be a fight if Canada tried to redraw Quebec's borders and I agree with him... he jus' don't know what kinda fight he's in for. The last time they they tried that crap, in 1973, they had the barrel of a gun shoved WAY UP THEIR COLLECTIVE ASSES.

I would suggest that, instead of playing into this poor creatures snare that you just boycott his show.........shouldn't be hard, there are only........what?........maybe 35 TV's in all of Canada anyway.........right?.

But Mercer's piss poor attempt at fame with this awful stench should be avoided at all costs. I wouldn't even boycott it; I'll just pretend it never happened and hope it dies faster than a dead thread.

Perhaps we should not assume that GUEST,Rick Mercer is the real Rick Mercer. This sounds more like an ill considered publicity stunt, perhaps by someone at Slater Street Films in Halifax to get the show ratings up.

When Rick was interviewed on CBC Radio yesterday, he had a lot more grace. This show is a collection of pieces where Rick asks Americans questions about Canada, usually made-up nonsensical questions. He admitted that Americans had little reason to learn about Canada. We Canadians have lots of reasons that I won't spell out to learn about the country on our borders with ten times our population, with economic and military clout, with a president who steals elections and who at times appears to be short a few IQ points.

Mercer didn't call Americans stupid on the radio. Instead he indicated that the joke revolved around American's urge to help when they knew nothing about Canada. He indicated that he had to exclude Americans who knew about Canada. His skill in manipulating people with his fast talking Newfie banter was part of the game. He also chuckled at how Canadians know too much about the U.S. That too may be funny.

The 9:00, 9:30 thing - Newfoundland has a half-assed time zone that is ˝ hour out of whack with the rest of humanity.

Apparently, it is not ony Americans who are ignorant when it comes to things Canadian. Some Canadians show that they're just as ignorant.

Consider Gnu, who said, "Alex... that was to Yanks in general. Your political leaders are courting the PQ's, Parti Quebecois, who have just won another election in La Belle Province and have vowed, AGAIN, to separate."

Just won another election? They won the election in 1998. Quebec is closer to the next election than to the one Gnu thinks the Parti Quebecois "just won."

But don't underestimate The Mudcat's audience. While I don't think that the audience one would get from our Canadian, and those of us who live close enough to her to get her TV stations, is significant, I do think that we have a large enough audience for a fight to have merit in promotion. (howzat for a sentence........sure hope Mrs. Boeve isn't reading this). Especially in the mind of a promo person.

flattop... hear ya loud and clear and sgree with a lot of what you posted, but, still, a lot of these 22 Minutes segemnts were pretty poor. I have always lived by the motto, **** 'em if they can't take a joke, but, again, some of these segments were contrived and childish. So much so that I was embarrased for Rick.

BTW, for the benefit of you Yanks, Rick is a very talented writer, comedian and actor who has made me laugh and provoked me to ponder many, many times. It's just this one bit that upsets me. AND it's not just me. Many of my friends are of like mind.

BTW BTW, flattop said... We Canadians have lots of reasons that I won't spell out to learn about the country on our borders with ten times our population, with economic and military clout.... Whoa up bucko ! The Commonwealth has a population far more than ten times the population of the US, and has far more economic, military and political clout than the US. Perhaps we tend to learn more about them than they do of us because we have have to do SOMETHING during these damn snowstorms like I'm doing right now.

You are, of course, correct. The PQ did not recently win an election. They just elected a new idiot leader of their party to lead them to separation and domination by corporate America.

Why take it so heavy? If there's anything 100 per cent certain in this life, it is that, if you hit the roof when people rub you up the wrong way, there is going to be a queue of people lining up rub you up the wrong way, just to see you hit the roof. Human nature, not even malicious, just human.

To Mr. McGrath, we Americans are not any more likely to become incandescent when we're picked on than Canadians, and it's a low blow to inseminate that we have poor bladder control.

Coming in late here, several items leap to my attention after reading this thread.

1) I don't know Rick Mercer.
2) I don't expect I'll ever see Rick Mercer.
3) If he is who you say he is, why the hell would he post here?
4) The only Canadjun I know on TV is Steve Smith who has both my heart and hands becuase we share a mutual interest in possums and duct tape.
5) The other Canadians on TV moved here.
6) I don't get CBC.
7) Time-Warner hasn't mentioned adding CBC to my cable lineup.
8) Anything said about Dubya being dumb, insensitive, uncaring, a liar, or a generally complete fuckup has already been said.
9) Unlike Bruce O., I am not bothered being viewed as an "American." It's hard to improve an image through denial.
10) Why are we going on about this? Most of us like Canadians and US citizens as well. Personally though, "I don't give damn for the whole state of Michigan.".........known around here only as "the state up north."

What a shame. Sure, some will take it in good spirit, but many will be a bit hurt or angry, and think all Canadians are jerks. Of course that's what the little mischief maker(s) who started this thread are after. The TV actor Rick Mercer has nothing to do with this, but it seems to parallel the thread below, regarding intent, and what some of the community think of others here. Sad. I guess it's just been a boring week for a couple of people.
