Canadian Comedy Central

I don’t know why people keep banging on about how funny Comedy Central is, because whenever they embed a video, this is what I get:

Am I missing something? Is it the new, newer universal punchline? Something like:

1: My dog’s got no nose.

2: How does he smell?

1: In Canada, Comedy Central Videos are available on The Comedy Network.

or

Q: What’s yellow and deadly?

A: In Canada, Comedy Central Videos are available on The Comedy Network.

i remember that ben elton back when he was funny

Mr Butcher: [sits down on a bollard, then jumps up in disgust] Eurgh, I’ve just sat on something horrible and smelly!
Mr Baker: What was it?
Mr Butcher: My bottom.

– and that, kids, was the essence of alternative comedy.

TEA sez:

EcoBunk Unplugged
the 15th Annual EcoBunk Awards

For advertising excellence in confusing the public & compromising the environment.

Our annual fundraiser and comedy show pokes fun at the most outrageous corporate green advertising of 2005. Sometimes we even point the finger at ourselves. We present nominated ads under nine different categories and reveal the winner. The laughter lasts for two full hours.

Of course, we don’t actually send awards to the winning companies.

Come celebrate with us! Ecobunk is a popular and favourite event among the environmentally-minded in Toronto, Waterloo and points beyond.

Kitchen Stories

We just watched Salmer fra kj�kkenet, a Norwegian/Swedish film about kitchen efficiency in Norwegian bachelors’ homes in 1950. It’s a very touching comedy, and it even has a musical saw!

Just … Look Around You

It’s the perfect pastiche of 1970s “Television for Schools and Colleges” from the BBC. It’s also the perfect reason to own a multiregion DVD player.
