    Default Modern Coeur de Bois

    I first watched this on Canadian tele a number of years ago. I found it again on line and thought I would share. This is pretty typical of the Canadian sense of humour. Hard to say if it appeals to a wider audience.

    Excellent Lloyd thanks for sharing that one. Certainly "suits" my sense of humour.

    I noticed that; Dave Foley (the guy in the back) is from Etobicoke Ontario and Kevin MacDonald (in the Front) from Montreal Quebec. Both would have had lots of access to canoes growing up.

    Are they the same guys who did Mr. Aluminum Canoe Head, transformed after a portaging incident? Or was that on fist of fun?

    Both shows used to be on UK Tv at 4 in the morning many years ago.

    The Above was done by Kids in the Hall in the mid 90's
    Mr. CanoeHead was done by Four on the Floor (the guys from the Frantics) a few years before.

    Mr.Canoehead can be found here but it isn't great quality. I am sure the Frantics will be released on DVD soon and the on line video quality will go up in the future.

    Default the kids in the hall

    I'd forgotten all about this and how funny it was.
    If I remember rightly it was an ongoing sketch that ran through a number of shows.
    The question I have is.
    Is this unregulated hunting or is there a specific suit hunting season, are there quotas or can anyone join in (please).

    Jacques and Francois were in a couple of skits; most notably a half hour long episode called Chalet 2000 where the Queen (Scott Thomson) flees to Canada to escape the British Tabloids and has an affair with a Beaver (Bruce McCulloch). There is more to the episode than that but you get the idea. The Business suit Trapper skit was my favorite.

    Another favorite is the exhibition shirling match; I have been looking forward it at the Highland games for years but it doesn't seem to have taken off yet.

    Bumped this thread as we were talking about it in the pub last night and Blutack hasn't watched it yet.

    Once I watch I can't stop singing along with them - Pure dead Brilliant.

    You should hear MK's version of that song.

    Here are the words for anyone who cares, but John may post the Scottish words too eventually.
    Alouette, gentille Alouette

    Alouette, gentille Alouette
    Alouette je te plumerai

    Alouette, gentille Alouette

    Alouette, gentille Alouette
    Alouette je te plumerai

    Alouette, gentille Alouette

    Et la queue, et la queue
    Alouette, Alouette
    O-o-o-o-oh
    Alouette, gentille Alouette
    Alouette je te plumerai

    English Translation: Alouette means "Lark", so you will find it is much harder to sing this song in English since "lark" has only one syllable, while Alouette has four. The song is actually about "plucking" the feathers (plumage) from a lark, presumably in preparation for cooking. A lark is considered to be a small "game bird" (a game bird is a bird considered to be suitable for food, like the coot, dove, grouse, hazel hen, mud hen, partridge, pigeon, plover, quail, rail, snipe, thrush, and woodcock).

    Lark, nice Lark (or Lark, lovely Lark)
    Lark, I am going to pluck you
    I am going to pluck your head,
    I am going to pluck your head,
    And the head, and the head,
    O-o-o-o-oh

    All the verses are the same except the part of the body.
    The usual ones are
    La tÍte - the head
    Le nez - the nose
    Les yeux - the eyes
    Le cou - the neck
    Les ailes - the wings
    Le dos - the back
    Les pattes - the legs
    Le queue - the tail
