Oh comon you guys, its funny and is meant to amuse people over the christmas. LC is one of the wittiest people I have ever come accross and I,m sure he would have a good old laugh at this . Take it in the spirit it was meant, lighthearted, and lets not all get too deep in analysis.
Wishing all the forum members a merry Christmas, and a happy healthy and peaceful New Year. :D :D :D

Maybe. Or maybe they're not smart enough to simply invest the time and effort. :razz:

After all, we are very Cohencentric :lol:
Me too, so I'm not saying how funny our Forum - sometimes - should be seen "from outside" :D

"Like a bird in the oven" - it's not hillarous but worth a giggle, I'll probably be singing it myself this year.

They only played ~ 20 seconds of the Leonard Cohen bit on the show. I thought it was a nice shout out to one of our icons.

http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/Shows/22_Minu ... 2176609403 - the actual portion played on the show is at ~ 43:20

I'm with scocoh, that was pretty lame. :roll:

I guess the fact that Leonard is recognizable enough to be so shamelessly parodied is a weird sort of tribute, as horridly (and falsely) stereotypical as it was.

No CBC on my cable, so am hoping this will make its way here or to youtube.

Thanks for posting the link Roman. I wish I hadn't seen it.
