Just in time for Festivus!



I just got an email from the CBC online boutique. It's the Coronation Street DVD Trivia game, now on sale for $39.99. You can find it at CBCSHOP.CA.

No, I'm not being paid by the CBC to advertise this stuff. But they did promise me I could take home the Friendly Giant's castle next time I'm in Toronto.

We need this for the next BIS show. Trivia game at Glacia's!

Awww hate to disappoint you John but the Friendly Giant castle is no longer at the CBC Museum. They had a small event yesterday to say goodbye to Jerome and Rusty. It was a sad day.

I thought they only took Rusty and Jerome away but left the other props. I was trying to make a roundabout joke about their sudden removal but, wow, didn't know they were taking everything. Or is the castle's absence a separate issue?

BTW, wanna see some idiocy in action? Read the comments section for the Globe and Mail piece on this story. I swear, the Globe could run the sentence "The CBC is a broadcaster" and 78 comments will appear, calling the network a den of socialists and God-haters.

Bugger the game, I'll take the calendar with the picture of Dierdre's glamorous gams!

Sears also has the Trivia game. Not sure if their delivery fees are cheaper. Ijust ordered the travel mug from there for my sister. (Same price for both items as the CBC stuff.)

Whaddya mean there is no Friendly Giant castle anymore?!?!?!?! Did they kill Susie the Mouse too? Rip up Chez Helene's picture? Has Finnegan been put down?

What is happening to our Canadian culture? Sob!
