Canadians just aren't very funny people... except, I guess, for all the comics that bee-lined it to the States rather than audition for Air Farce and Little Mosque on the Prairie. In print, Canadians are excruciatingly unfunny. Name one consistently funny newspaper columnist (though, I suppose, how can you keep a sense of humour and work on a Canadian newspaper?). Our magazines, even the one(s) that are supposed to be funny, are pretty grim, too. Today, the Leacock Award judges re-affirmed the lame state of Canadian humour.
