Crosbie gets a taste of his own medicine on ’22 Minutes’

Newfoundland and Labrador’s Lieutenant-Governor John Crosbie, who came under fire last week for making what some perceived as an inappropriate joke about suicide and suicide bombers in public, took to the set of ‘This Hour has 22 Minutes’ for an episode airing tonight. The Star reports that Mark Critch and Shaun Majumder do their best to unsettle Crosbie with a slew of Newfoundland-jokes, but the comedians say that the Lieutenant-Governor came prepared. “The second I walked in he was rhyming Critch with bitch and Majumder with blunder,” said Critch.
