Comedian Glen Foster, who calls himself "That Canadian Guy," believes the Canadian flag sends an important message around the world:
"It says, 'Low hostage value.' "
Foster also is confident that "there's never going to be a terrorist attack in Canada -- this is where they send their relatives for safety."
Those are a couple of lines from Foster's new Comedy Now! special, which debuts Friday, Aug. 26 on the Comedy Network.
Foster has been around the comedy scene for 25 years, but his monicker "That Canadian Guy" is based on the observation that audiences usually can't remember the names of comedians they see on TV.
Here are a couple more examples from the special that are indications of Foster's style of humour:
On the financial crisis: "Credit is the problem. When you pay cash for something, there's a connection to it. You watch the money as you're handing it over. 'Seems like a lot for one dance.' "
On public transit: "I don't want to take public transit. You don't want to take public transit. Even the people who take public transit don't want to take public transit. Because the public is on public transit."
