Top five signs American Idol is over

LOS ANGELES — The guitar slinging crooner Phillip Phillips came out on top Wednesday night to take the American Idol crown.

The 21-year-old singer from Leesburg, Ga. was selected over 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez. He received a standing ovation from Idol judges after his Tuesday’s song finale “Home.”

Phillips is Idol’s 11th season winner, making it five times in a row a male performer has been selected.

The decision came after a record high 132 million votes were cast after Tuesday’s final performances.

So… aside from the fact that you are no longer “busy” two nights of the week; Mikes top five signs Idol is over.

#5. You have begun your annual month-long feeling of emptiness.

#4. The words “dog” and “yo” now revert back to their dictionary meanings for the next eight months.

#3. You swear you’ll bite the head off anyone who says “well, the judges sure wasted that save on Jessica, didn’t they?” at work this morning.

#2. You’re already regretting re-naming your children Joshua, Phillip and Jessica.

#1. You can now watch the kids soccer game without data overages on your phone!!!

Wondering what to do next? You're not alone.

Wondering what to do next

I read somewhere that Canadians are spending more time on-line than watching TV.

They say 18 hours a week on the Internet and just 17 hours a week watching TV.

So, there are 168 hours in a week, we sleep 56, work 40, tv and net 35.

That leaves 37 hours a week of nothing?

That does explain why I spend 5.286 hours a day staring off into space wondering what to do next. -Mike

The Bachelor Canada will air this fall! It will be a Canadian version of the hit show and will be shot this spring. Right now they are seeking potential Bachelorettes at CityTV.com/BachelorCanada. Mike’s top five differences between the American Bachelor and the Canadian Bachelor.
#5. We feel the need to spell it with a “u”. B-a-c-h-e-l-o-u-r.
#4. Instead of the host downing Margaritas in between segments, everyone passes around a giant beer.
#3. I don’t think the American version of the show has a Zamboni segment, does it?
#2. Roses cost a lot more up here, so instead, there will be a dandelion ceremony.
#1. Bachelors are selected from a pool of rejected contestants from Canada’s Worst Driver, Canada’s Worst Handyman and Man Tracker. Sorry ladies!
