CBC Sunday Morning

There are some weird ass shows on CBC Saturday and Sunday mornings these days.

This morning, I watched a show called Yam Roll, a cartoon that stars – you guessed it – a yam roll, and a puppet show called Mr. Meaty.

In Mr. Meaty, best friends Josh and Parker work in a fast food burger joint. In today’s episode Parkerina, Parker is temporarily turned into a girl after ingesting too many girl-growth homone laced girl-burgers (which are not recommended for boys in the first place).

While under cover as Josh’s female cousin, Parker infiltrates the girls bathroom to find out why the girls are “hatin’ on the Josh”. What he discovers is an international organization of girls with the goal of increasing the number of ponies on every continent. He also discovers that Josh is in the international girls database as a ‘User’ because he made his last movie date pay for everything, even the extra butter on the popcorn.


What stays with me most of all, even hours after watching the show, was the transformation scene where Parker becomes Parkerina.

It. Was. Brilliant.

It was very American Werewolf in London

I don’t have the name of the voice actor for Parker, but whoever he is, I nominate him for the ‘leading actor in a burger-joint puppet show’ emmy.
