    “When you’re an active investor like myself you need tools to….take a picture of my crotch….and email it to everyone in my contact list.” LMAO!

  3. When you click on the second video, it says it’s no longer available.

  4. LOL. It was a great episode. Thank you for posting on yt. I’m in Dubai and totally hooked on the show.

    Zeynab,
    I usually go to youtube by clicking on menu and watch on an enlarged screen from there. The second was fine for me.

  5. This one was excellent! I was laughing through most of it.

    I love Amaar and the Reverend’s friendship.

    greetings:

    it seems that more and more often, we can no longer access these postings of the show. Youtube says it’s some kind of violation, and either my computer is slow, but the same thing is happening on this site—no access!

    is it because the creators/CBC want us to BUY the DVD’s? have they gotten stingy with sharing this great show for free?

    Where can we go to see the rest of these episodes on line? Unfortunately, America has not featured this show….

    Was it just me or did you guys feel sorry for Amaar when he was broke and hungry?

    I wish we’d remember that there are people 100x worse than that and provided aid where needed.

    I’m from the UK and am using this as my only means to keep up with the show. Please don’t stop posting videos 😦

    This episode reminds me of a Stephen Leacock story I heard read on CBC raido. I think Leacock’s was about a gold mine near a small Ontario town, and how the townsfolks reacted. I can’t remember the name of Leacock’s story.
    The episode also reminds me of the mark Tewain story “The Man who Corrupted Hadleyville”

  10. This episode was actually… gasp, shock! … funny!!!

    Loved the mayor’s first drink of beet juice!! I know, i know, a little juvenille but it was so funny. Amaar & the Rev. are getting more brotherly – good show!

    There is salvation for the Mercy Beet Company!
    Beet juice for ice removal!!! 🙂

    Well, that was my reaction when I heard this story,
    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=19333950
    “More U.S. cities are starting to use a mixture that includes sugar beet juice to treat icy roads. The mixture is less corrosive than salt to cars, equipment, roads and the environment. Some say the beet solution is expected to phase out traditional salt-spreading trucks in the next decade.”
    Who needs Darcy Tucker?
