That's gonna stick.

Bobbi hadn't heard "Blame Canada" before, so I played the YouTube video for her.



I'd forgotten what a potent earworm it is; now I'm afraid I'll start singing it in line at the Fresh Market or something.

I'm tempted to print off the lyrics and leave them in the copy machine for my Canuckistan overlords ...

Love it. Last time I was in Montreal I couldn't get it out of my head.

I work for a major Quebecois entertainment company and I hum it from time to time...

Kinda rude, eh?

Damn you, Tam! Damn you to hell!

How will I ever get this out of my head?

I've hard worse earworms, its true. Of course everyone who had their undies in a bind missed the whole point of the song in the first place, to my considerable entertainment.

Don't forget the companion piece, the Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen.

One of the high points of my life was when I took #2 Son to Niagara Falls on a roadtrip, and the wee bairn, seeing the Canadian flags, burst into this song at the top of his lungs.

Sniff. They grow up so fast.
