The Tim Horton's commercial parody; the guy with the pink cowboy hat who drinks Tim Horton coffee then goes over and floods the hockey rink; back and forth, back and forth; except in the parody it's not water that he is flooding the rink with, which is why he has to keep drinking coffee.

Years ago on the radio, a sketch about Sherlock Holmes and Moriarity; Moriarity's sneering voice suddenly sounds like someone else; then he says "I seem to have slipped into Trudeau."

The first few times that Luba Goy did Martha Stewart; Don Ferguson doing so much, Tom Cruise, Trudeau, and especially the Mulroney stoop-with-hand-drag; and keep reminding me?

I love their spoofs of the CIBC commercials, where the couple is in the restaurant and the husband breaks the news of their retirement finances to the wife by saying, "We're going to have to make some difficult choices: Florence or Tuscany?"

The interviews they have someone's face pasted onto an animal; Don Fergusen as a cow, eg.

Luba Goy as Queen Elizabeth shovelling flowers out of Buckingham Palace following the death of Princess Diana and saying "Note to self: buy stock in FTD and sic the papparazzi on Fergie."

Same episode, Roger Abbott as Elton John singing his tributes to dead people including one for Jerry Lewis: "Jerry, you're not dead yet, but we wish you were."

Oh yeah -- and "Kill Bill C-250" a rather devastating attack on the Conservative Party's homophobia.

I forgot about this one. Absolutely classic.

Sgt. Renfrew, hands-down. "I was sitting in my lonely log cabin on the 14th floor of Mountie headquarters..." "Who are those other truckers, I asked? When I regained consciousness..." "We're worried they're trying to steal the election, Renfrew. I misunderstood. No, no, Renfrew, the chief said. An election is something that happens every four years. Again I misunderstood."

Talking to Afghans. "Congratulations Canada, on legalising hats, and making your national animal the Tim Bit."

The video of the segment is at this address. Scroll down 2/5 of the way.

Edit: Brain fart made me type "Iraqis" instead of "Afghans"

First Big Bobby Clobber interview (I think they were saying - Get the puck out...of here; The shot hit him right in the nets...)

Canadians wines (Blight's Mal De Cheval, Chapeau Gai Rose - or as we say in English, Pink Faggot Hat)

Bureaucratic Interview:

How many fingers?
Five.
Okay, and thumbs?

Religion?
No religion - I'm an atheist.
But you must have a religion.
No, I've told you, I'm an atheist, I don't believe in God.
Okay, which God do you not believe in - the Catholic God, or the Protestant God?
Oh well, the Catholic God I guess.
There you see, you're a Protestant.

These were all from the radio days...

Oh, and I agree about Sergeant (Corporal?) Renfrew. Every episode was hilarious.

In one, Renfrew dressed in female underwear goes ndercover into a massage parlor.

At the critical moment he smashes the door of a room and rushes in shouting, "This is a bust!

The masseuse replied, "You call 34-B a bust"

Sergeant Renfrew describing a beautiful woman in a lab coat; "The name tag on her left breast said 'Susan'; I didn't ask the name of the other one."

Both. He was promoted.

I think the Air Farce lost a lot when it moved to TV and became all current events.

And happily, in doing a google search on "Amy de la pompa" I discovered that their 1978 album is available to listen to free of charge online at http://www.airfarce.com/audio/comedy.html

At that page you'll find links to their other albums, also all available online.
