Re­mem­ber Ed The Sock? Well, he’s back! And his War On Stupid Tour hits The Gar­rick in Win­nipeg on Dec. 7. I had a chance to in­ter­view the Cana­dian icon on my ra­dio show this week. Or should I say, I tried to ask him ques­tions and he ridiculed me. It was fun though!

My fa­vorite line of his...“go­ing to Kanye West for a po­lit­i­cal opin­ion is like get­ting Cap­tain Hook to solve a Ru­bic’s Cube.” By the way, this tour is in sup­port of a new on­line home Ed is build­ing called the FU Net­work, also known as FUN.


Good luck to the Bombers! They of course take on the Rid­ers in Regina in to­mor­row’s West­ern Semi-fi­nal. This sea­son has been an in­con­sis­tent one of our boys in blue and gold but you know what, it wouldn’t sur­prise me if they go all the way...fi­nally! Two more wins and they’re in the big game. Win three and they’ll be hoist­ing the Grey Cup. Also good luck to Adam Bighill, An­drew Har­ris and Stan­ley Bryant who’re up for CFL awards.


Have you given le­gal pot a try yet? A bit of ad­vice from cannabis en­thu­si­ast Sarah Han­lon. Yes, the same Sarah Han­lon who won Big Brother Canada. She says if you’re just get­ting started or giv­ing it an­other go af­ter many years, only take one puff. You can al­ways take more if needed. Sarah has done a se­ries of videos you can see on­line where she an­swers all the ba­sic ques­tions about mar­i­juana use for be­gin­ners. Just go to lift.co to check them out.


I helped to make Bo­hemian Rhap­sody the num­ber one movie last week­end. What a good flick! I’m not a big Queen fan but the great story (a lot of which I didn’t know) and Rami Malek’s great per­for­mance as Fred­die Mer­cury had my at­ten­tion from start to fin­ish. And of course the mu­sic was cool too. And if you feel like a good movie but want to watch it at home, give Blackkklansman a try. We watched it the other night and it’s ex­cel­lent!


And fi­nally, be­cause it was Aid & Abet Pun­sters Day the other day, I thought we’d end with a few good puns. OK, maybe they’re not that good...

Po­lice were called to a day­care where a three year old was re­sist­ing a rest.a small boy swal­lowed some coins and was taken to a hos­pi­tal. When his grand­mother phoned to ask how he was, a nurse said, “No change yet.”what’s the dif­fer­ence be­tween deer nuts and beer nuts? Beer nuts are a $1.75 but deer nuts are un­der a buck.
