Catherine O’Hara scores for humanity
The closing ceremony of the 2010 winter olympic games. Neil Young. Russian ballet. Giant inflatable moose. I think I may have cried real maple syrup when they rolled out those great big beavers. Whether or not you like Nickelback or managed to smile during William Shatner’s monologue, the fact remains that at a moment when the world’s eyes were upon us, Canada had the balls to end with a joke about peeing in the snow. There are lots of tight-ass commentors wringing their hands over the kitsch and the low-brow humour, but I salute you, Catherine O’Hara.
But now I’ve got to run. It’s been above freezing all week in Montreal- if I’m going to sign my name, I’ve got to get out there right now.
