I am sure this week some of us are far more preoccupied with another, larger myth than that of Billy Bob Thorton; yet I can't resist having a go at it.
Oh, my. Oh, my. Oh, my!
I am having issues with the mash potato statement!
Canadians are like mash potatoes without gravy?

Now, smooth, hot mashed potatoes with garlic or, loaded with rosemary... that, might be character defining.
As for you being "funny", or offended? tst-tst-tst... Difficult and ignorant is a better description. Stupid?
On our very own CBC? In a cozy interview with our delightful, daily companion Jian Ghomeshi? You, got yourself voted off Canadian Idol!
And, let me tell you about Canadians.

The Boxmasters Band is OK - like, mash potatoes with a tad of gravy.
Seen it/heard it on late night TV. The kind of pleasant stuff guys may play when they get together in the basement (with Billy Bob, if he brought his drums)
"Mod Billy": is a styles fusion with a distinguishable dash of Cajun - that's what I heard, whatever they may call it....
I much prefer mash potatoes without gravy. Unless, that's all there is...
