Have Mercy, Mercer

For those looking for some new material out there, with the writer's strike having affected new programming, and for those who can appreciate Jon Stewart, Rick Mercer is even better. And if you don't know Rick, he's a homegrown guy from Newfoundland. If you can appreciate the finest ironies in life, you'll come to love him too

A few things to note as you watch...

  1. I don't mean to offend anyone by posting this here, but this really is funny. Maybe learn a life lesson along the way - as we say and do ridiculous things, we can laugh at ourselves. And if we can't laugh at ourselves, well, that's just kinda sad, isn't it.
  2. Each segment is hysterical... really. If you don't get it, time to google it, get the facts, and watch it again.
  3. Watch closely - even though this is an older video, 2 elections ago, it's still timely - some of the same people and newsmakers are interviewed - Huckabee, Gore, and some Bush (should have served as a warning!) Some others were in the video that I should know, but don't.
  4. I admit quality lacks, but funny trumps quality every time.
