A Pocket Full of Murder

Best. Idol Show. Ever.

Okay, I don't care what you say, even if you don't like Gordon Lightfoot or any of his songs -- last night's episode of Canadian Idol was sheer genius. And not from the expected contenders, either: this time it was Shane and Theresa who stole the stage. But Jacob, whose actual performance was fairly dull, did one classic thing for which I must love him forever: he gave the smarmy host, Ben Mulroney (and yes, he is the son of Canada's least favourite Prime Minister), a wet willy. A big smeary one. Which caused Ben to round on him and call him a "FREAK!" He looked like he was thisclose to losing his temper. I was highly amused.

lydaclunas and Pete (plus anyone else who might be interested), you can find the wet willy footage (or just a picture of the incident, for those cursed with slow connections) here. Hee!
