    Link: Canadian Funny Guy, Roger Abbot, Dies At 64 - The rest of the world may not care, but most (if not all) of us Canadians consider him a hero.

    And to my fellow Canadians that will give me guff, I grew up with a grand total of 2 channels, and I still despised that show.

    Sad news indeed. There are LOTS of funny Canadians, more than I can list, but few produced truely funny material for as long a career as Roger Abbot. Also he was (by many reports) a genuinely, really nice guy.

    HEY! DARKHUMOUR! I, as an American of English Heritage, was appalled when Bush called England our "greatest friend." I think that Canada is as great a country as the US is, that we have no greater friend than Canada, and that we are lucky to have the friendship we do with Canada.

    I live within 30 minutes of the border and used to go for a visit all the time. My attitude was always that crossing the US/Canada border was no big deal for US and Canadian citizens. And I mean this in both directions. Us visiting you, and you visiting us. It was like going to your best friends house. After a while you almost don`t have to knock. Then they went and started requiring passports, and...well, let`s just say I miss Canada. CANADA! USA! CANADA! USA!

    I mentioned this to my wife, who`s Canadian. She asked me if he had been sick, so I went onto google. Apparently he finally passed away after a 14-year battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Man, that`s a bad beat.

    This show (and him) is one of the reasons why we don`t get that upset when people from other countries make fun of us. We have learned how to make fun of, and to laugh at ourselves.
