Rant Like Rick

Commentary by Stephen Downes

If you are not Canadian you might not be familiar with Rick Mercer's rants. But the former star of 'This Hour Has 22 Minutes' and current lead for 'The Rick Mercer Show' is well known across the country, and especially in his native Newfoundland, as the progenitor of a unique style of half-comedy half-serious rant. Now Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) is asking prospective students to "rant like Rick" by submitting a video of themselves doing a Mercer rant. It's something everyone can try, and mayb fewer can do, and of curse it also requires some new media skills and the ability to recruit a camera person. The sample rant MUN provides is quite good; best line: "Unless you're the last sheep you're a leader, right?"
