Canada *Hearts* Barack Obama

CBC 2 are canvassing viewers for submissions to "49 Songs from the 49th parallel" a mix tape of Canadian music to send to Barack Obama.

Yes, you heard me right. A mix tape. They're calling it a 'playlist' but I think we all know where this is going. The President-elect will just put it into the car glove-box and forget about it, and when Canada asks 'so what did you think', Barack Obama will mumble a half-hearted 'er, great stuff' and Canada will know that Obama never listened to the tape and its heart will harden.

And in the years to come we will pinpoin that as the moment when Armageddon started.

That is soooooo cynical. Truly.

And scarily accurate, I'd imagine.

I have already been online and recommended a raft of Nickelback songs.... I mean, it's supposed to be a look into Canada's soul, innit.

pesky canadians. Always taking our
ideas before we have thought of them. I might start a mix tape of my own form Ireland. Call it the Green Green Grass of Home. He is Irish after all.
OHH Obamalama
