It is worth a chuckle, though. I mean, this time Peggy and the Friends are literally circling the drain...

Good Baklava: Nicely done!

For your next round perhaps you could lampoon a CBC reporter or two.

The bio is mostly correct, however the line about "correcting her stories" is in error and should read "recalculating her monthly CBC pension upon retirement".

Hah!

Funny you mention that, JET. I've tried to imitate that incongruous sign-off a hundred times and I just can't get the intonation right.

Reminds me of the former ATV/CTV reporter Dan MacIntosh. He had a unique way of drawing out "Daaaaaan" when he signed off. It was almost as if he was stalling for time while trying to remember his last name, except then he'd do it all over again with "MaaaacIntosh".

Praise the Lord, CBC's Pam Berman has announced she is retiring! The bad news is that she's not leaving until April.
