People seem determined not to give Frank his chance at stardom. I’ve written to all the major producers and pitched the idea of Frank as celebrity canine guest but unbelievably, they’ve all turned us down.
I’m devastated, but Frank is holding up well.
We’re going to try and sneak into the local Idol competition and see if we can’t get noticed. It’s open mike night at Karaoke Ken’s House of Gambling. The management there might by more open-minded than Ben Mulroney of Canadian Idol who wouldn’t even come to the phone. Just because he’s the son of our lantern-jawed ex-Prime Minister doesn’t give him the right to squash the dreams of the less well-connected.
To warm up to the event at Karaoke Ken’s, I’ve taken Frank to the video booth at the New VI TV station several times. A security guard threatened to shoo us out until I pointed out that Frank, with his rendition of “Howlies”, is more coherent than the vast majority of people who perform for Speaker’s Corner.

It is not a particularly palatable dish, but is considered a status symbol. Here’s an idea. Find another status symbol. Like, for instance, memorabilia from the newest and hottest reality TV star: Frank Juby!

It’s time to make shark fin soup uncool.
