almost redeems that brainless and sycophantic ArtistsCAN Lean On Me atrocity about which somebody on my Facebook commented, "I'm not much for censorship, but in times such as these, morale is paramount. It should be banned and the master tapes destroyed lest they ever get into the hands of the enemy." Though somebody else commented, "If anything it is making people clean themselves thoroughly with soap and water for a prolonged period of times, I know it gets under the skin but just don't use steel wool," ohhhhh Canaduh.

How can anyone watch this and think we should defund the CBC? Our national spirit is being eroded.

Love the hair-cutting family train around 4:00. I'm at the seriously-considering-cutting-my-own-hair stage.
Thanks for posting this.

Pitch for next Canadian quarantine spectacular: the Tenors are planning some giant schmaltzy end-of-coronaterror special in a zoom meeting when they are all simultaneously taken down by androids made to resemble The Parachute Club.

The androids briefly sing "Rise Up" and then Canada celebrates its deliverence from the coronavirus and the Tenors.
