If you ask this Canadian...
Not sure if it's meant to be funny, or just mean. I don't like it either way. Would have given 0 stars if it was possible.
Not Funny. Not Even Close to a Giggle. Watching Paint Dry More Fun.
We Canucks are known internationally for our politeness and our sense of humour. This podcast is in the Comedy category, and I get it -- it's trying to be tongue and cheek funny by poking fun at us living here in the Great White North, eh?
But unfortunately, not everyone can write comedy, and here's an excellent example of what happens when someone who laughs at their own jokes -- at least I hope you guys laugh at your own jokes, because no one else is -- attempts to be funny.
Watching the tar flow in the Alberta Tar Sands is more fun -- look a shoe!
Sorry AskACanadian.org -- this Canadian found your jokes dated, and no more fun than watching re-runs of the The Fifth Estate backwords. Actually, that is fun. Sorry. I tried.
Barely ONE star out of Five.
1/5 stars cuz it won't let me do 0
Guess that answers weather or not anyone can do a podcast. Thumbs down, fail.
