Barbara Frum worked for the CBC here for years and years and was one of the lead interviewers of her time.
Always a lady but this time the guy got under her skin.

One of the best loved and most requested Barbara Frum interviews is with a British farmer who had grown the world’s largest cabbage. The cabbage reportedly stood five feet high and five feet across. In the interview, the world waits with bated breath to hear exactly what the farmer fed the cabbage to make it so monstrously big. Unfortunately, he turns out to be hard of hearing and inebriated, having just returned from the pub.

Frum immediately hones in on the ridiculousness of the situation and makes the best of it. In doing so, she delivers one of the most memorable and hilarious interviews of her career.
‘Goddamn cabbage!’

• Other amusing interviews by Barbara Frum include her chat with the “perky, fresh Earl,” her discussion about the great beaver and an interview with a Brit who collected telegraph poles.
• The staff at As It Happens became Frum’s family away from home. She took a personal interest in the people she worked with. One staff member affectionately described Frum as half Lois Lane and half Jewish mother.
‘Goddamn cabbage!’

Pommy, I’m saying never interview a Brit on his way home from the Pub. <g>
As for the Stout Pommy, I do hope you pass it through your kidneys first!

Topmax even the “polite Canadians have their limits, apparently. <g>
