My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Stop blaming the Swiss. You can’t keep that hate with you forever.
Every true Canadian recalls the Battle of That-Place-in-Ohio-That-Really-Should-Be-in-Canada in 1763, when some Swiss guy beat up some Indians, and stuff.*
Anyway, the point is that our hearts, and our righteous national grievance-trolling will go on until we have vanquished the Swiss oppressor.
*Real historical event. Well, Bouquet was Genevan, and his army was British, and it was more of a skirmish. Historicish.
“Kris Allen, who went on to win Idol and then get completely outsold by Adam Lambert, whom he theoretically beat”
How does this happen (I don’t really care, I’m asking retorically)? Win a singing contest, then get out sold by a “worse” signer? Just makes me think that the whole point of American Idol has nothing to do with…..well anything really.
I like the jab about the Swiss using allen wrenches to put together hockey sticks. As trash talking goes, that’s pretty clever.
@Kevin: I’m pretty sure that one was about the Swedes, who aren’t Swiss.
Burke: Someday, that will be corrected, and people will never make that mistake again.
