wow cbc is so groovy!, 5 May 2007
Author: James Ghent from toronto

i think it is so cool to have a hip forty year old guy sit cross legged on his chair and tell us in a fun way about the days news. wow he is so hip and cool it must hurt to be so hip and cool. cbc is so good at figuring out what us hip cool youths want to watch and then giving it to us. and the jokes he does on the show are so funny they make everyone laugh out loud. but lets get back to how cool and hip this show is especially the host. i am surprised how cool the cbc is. wow and the host is so young he is even younger than the air farce and almost as funny as them to. this is one cool show for cool people like me and the host. he is so cool. he reads the news with his fresh cool style so cool people like me can understand. i bet the hundred year olds at cbc are proud of how cool and fresh and hip the hour is. i wonder if they are working on ways to make it even cooler. like maybe they will change the theme song to something with rap music. and maybe they can have more people with leather jackets and they can ride motorcycles and smoke cigarettes with slick hair and say things like "groovy" and "here's todays news daddyo". what a cool show that is really all i can say. i only wish that i can be as cool as cbc's the hour someday. then man i would be a cool cat. maybe they can do an episode where george just plays video games and then walks right up to the camera and says "yo this game is wack!" and then point at us and tell us they have to take a commercial break then maybe talk about sushi and how cool sushi is and make fun of a politician who just isn't cool at all and everyone knows it. cbc is so cool. i hope they do another show with another forty year old guy who talks about the news because then they would have two shows that are so cool. the hour is so cool.
