He did a piece with "Triumph the Insult Comic Dog" puppet. They taped the puppet systematically insulting one Quebecer after another. It was hilarious. I couldn't believe NBC let him air that on his show. It was really funny but I guess Quebec and the Canadian government did not think so.

I don't know about the racist part. It was insulting depending on which side of the puppet you were on but I don't remember seeing or hearing anything racist.

I didn't watch it but from the article, sounds like a bit of an overreaction. I mean it is Conan for Pete's sake.bartmoon

My signature smilely! :D :spinsmile

How do I get this into my signature?

Chief, us cunucks have a GREAT sense of humour!! Check out Red Green, Jim Carrey, John Candy for a few examples of Canadian humour! :D In fact MOST Canadians make fun of Quebecers, it's a favourite pass-time! The trouble is that our Prime minister is from Quebec ( and if ever there was a Quebecer SCREAMING out to be made fun of!!!), along with a lot of other prominent polititions. :rolleyes:

Trouble is the PC police have made it almost impossible to make any kind of joke unless it is about a WASP male!!:dazed:

That is what threw me for a loop parts man. Most Canadians I know loath Quebec. They are always dangling the sesession card and I think a lot of Canadians are fed up with it. It was pretty hard core rude and nasty but I don't see where they got racist from.

Shania is not too shabby either! :thumbsup: Ashleigh Banfield is hot too! I was so upset when I heard about John Candy; he was one of my favorite comedy actors.

Did you see the piece I was talking about on Conan O'Brien parts man? What did you think about it?

Chief, I hadn't read it but did just now. I understand the confusion.

Alexa McDonough, a legislator for the left-leaning New Democrats, described the program as "racist filth" and "utterly vile" and demanded the government seek the return of the C$1 million subsidy

Alexa Mc D is a commy brain dead with absolutely no credability what so ever!!!! Her party can't even win a limbo contest!!!

Sounds like another case of the press building a story and then finding somebody to validate it.

Red Green Show is one of my favorites, for better or worse I can identify with him and his crew.

:usa: :canada:

Yup, Red Green is one of my favourites too. Up here in the winter a favourite pas-time is making jokes, and we have a LOT of time to work on our material!!:clown:
