Here is the news story -- please view video before reading my comment
Now please take a moment to laugh at Ottawa -- after all, you know you want to.
Now read my post, that in the context of this video, was simply too hot to post. hmmm.
Ok I live in Ottawa I think this is a great city -- even if I can say this more quickly in the middle of the summer than I can in February and even if the light rail construction is giving us traffic tie-ups that might make us think we were in Toronto. Even if our hockey team's best uniforms proclaim our team as zeros and they encourage food fights, at least we get the best fireworks and the rest of Canada pays for it.
Maybe cheaters from other places want to sound more cool on this website -- and say they are a little taller, a little less grey, a little more fit, and they live in Ottawa.
Ottawa is part way between Toronto and Montreal. Perhaps some of their residents prefer to say they live in Ottawa and meet up here. Or maybe some of us are not that good at filling in forms and have to do it over, and over, and over.
And maybe we all are faking it and we are not having affairs after all but we want the rest of Canada to think we are screwing each other more than we are screwing you.
I don't know.
But the video was funny. Oliver made me laugh and that's his job.
Those who can't see the humour might need to spice up their lives somehow -- wait, I have an idea.
Now since all of us in Ottawa are reputed to be doing endless boinking, perhaps I might be in a position to kindly suggest that the censors for the CBC do to themselves what the story is saying we in this city are doing to each other.
