Toil In The Soil

Being a Winnipeg kid in the mid to late 1980s ruled because when you came home from school for lunch at 12:00, you turned on the TV to watch a show called "S'kiddle Bits" hosted by Joey Gregorash (who had a handful of hit songs in the 1970s and 1980s). It was a live show that featured contests, birthday announcements, local events, guest appearances, lost pets, and funny parodies.

This is one such parody of an advertisement for a record album full of parodies based on stereotypical Canadian humour. I still love watching it.

I used to have a videocassette full of clips from his show, but it's long gone. This and one full length episode is all that survives in my video collection. I also used to have an autographed picture of him, but I think that went up in my parents' house fire. Now that I think about it, I lost a lot of really cool blogworthy shit in that fire. Oh well, I'll survive.
