    Has everyone seen the Canadian TV show "The Red Green Show?"

    It's a Canadian comedy show about a goofball who's always making things out of junk he finds around his lodge.

    There are lots of full episodes on youtube and I thought this kind of humor might be appreciated by those on this site.

    We've watched almost every show over the past couple decades. The kids loved them when they were growing up. So did we.

    When I was 13 or so and we didn't have satellite TV, PBS was one of the few channels we got through the air that had anything worth watching on in late evenings. I loved that show!

    He was an institution, a lot of fairly well known Canadian actors made cameos. There is even a full length movie.

    It's one of the few things that both my wife and I find funny.

    I didn't know there was a full length movie. I'll have to look for it.

    Years back when the middle son was in some kind of construction problem solving teamwork contest, 4 kids to a team with adult mentor which could not be a parent. I was keeping an eye on things and the kids were at a loss for a way to fasten something. Now you could not specifically point them in any direction they had to do it on there own. So all I said was "Red Green" and the cry went up "Duck tape" problem solved. Always liked that show tried to catch it when ever I could. I have a calender here of 365 days of Duck tape uses.

    "if the women don't find you handsome they should at least find you handy"

    edit: I dressed up one year as Red Green to take my kids trick-or-treating. Everyone thought I was Al Borland from Home Improvement.

    I found this segment particularly clever/funny: they 'tape' together the front ends of two front-wheel drive cars to build one with four wheel steering. The pulley linkage with bungees -- oh well, you have to see it.

    "If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy."

    Edit, Bahhh, just saw where I missed this one above. Well, it's worth reading twice I guess.

    Red Green was a Saturday night staple after bowling for years. PBS yanked it for whatever reason?? I just seen it back in the line-up again. For awhile I had to get my R-G fix on youtube but not now.
