Canadian YouTubers prefer gastro-porn to Bieber?

In a sign that perhaps Justin Bieber's fame as Canada's greatest export is over, Montreal-based Epic Meal Time, perhaps the most pornographic food show ever conceived, is reported to have more Canadian YouTube subscribers.

It seems that YouTubers (in Canada and elsewhere) would rather vomit than watch Justin Bieber.

Please, this is not some comment on the fine young man who makes me believe every day that you should never say never. This is, however, a comment on YouTubers (in Canada and elsewhere).

It appears that they have fallen in love with a show in which some very strange males concoct meals that would kill a horse in its prime.

Epic Meal Time, now a projectile of Revision 3, is a show that tries to prove just how disgusting meals can be if they consist of piles of bacon, sauce, and, oh perhaps I could just offer you the title of one particular show: Candy Pizza. (Of course I've embedded it. Wouldn't you?)

The whole thing is presented by someone who looks like a cross between a serial killer and the man who always tries to sell you steroids in the gym.

As of yesterday, the Independent reported that Epic Meal Time had 1,291,415 YouTube subscribers in Canada, 4,082 more than the entirely edible (at least to every teeny girl I know) Bieber.

However, when I go to the site, the subscriber figures appears to be worldwide, rather than merely Canadian-based.

Bieber hasn't yet reacted to this news. However, some might feel that the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper--who himself has a fine head of Bieberish hair--should be issuing an urgent statement.

His country has always been a beacon of hope for many--especially in the days when RIM wasn't quite on the rim of a flushing.

It's clear, though, that the nation's youth (and the world's) has been corrupted by these Montreal-based monsters who encourage them to gorge themselves on 400 grams of fat while using hockey sticks as utensils.

There comes a day when every nation has its defining moment.

Canada, do you wish to be known as the country that spawned the Maximum Mac and Cheese?

Or would you rather be known as the place that gave birth to a young boy who showed that niceness, decency and the smile, hair and voice of an archangel can propel you to everlasting fame and envy?
