I had the pleasure of attending a live taping of the Rick Mercer Report on January 15th. What a treat!.
Rick capitalizes on the recent government activities to feed his monologues each week and as you may have guessed it, the recent "parliamentary prorogue" was at the top of his agenda.
He had a field day with this one; as he has had for several weeks!
During the taping we are able to see some of the spoof ads he comes up with that will air the following week. One of them had me in stitches!
An ad begins...targeting parliamentary employees that may be at a loss as to what to do with their time! A promo to visit "Prorogue Vacations.com" sent the audience howling.
Which brings me to one of the fun features on Rick's website "the Photo Challenge".
Download a photo of Harper, Ignateiff, Layton or some other political figure that Rick has posted - photoshop them into one of your own... (or one borrowed from a friend) and send it off to the Rick Mercer Report. If they like it; they may post it to their site!
I took a stab at it myself the other evening and this is what I came up with!
More hilarious photo's at his website http://www.cbc.ca/mercerreport/ (I"m hoping they like mine and post it under "Harper's" link.
