Ex-Vancouver resident Sook-Yin Lee, former lead singer of Bob's Your Uncle, hasn't lost her capacity to surprise.
Many years ago as a veejay with MuchMusic, Lee once dropped her drawers and mooned the audience.
Today, I was listening to her CBC Radio show, Definitely Not the Opera, which was entirely focused on the theme of death.
Out of nowhere, Lee confessed how mortified she was by the demise of her two cats, Oscar and Hannah.
She keeps their ashes in an urn at home. And, get this, she admitted on the air that at one point, she actually ate some of the ashes. Yum yum.
That way, her beloved felines would remain with her forever.
It didn't quite rank up with her performing intercourse and masturbating on screen in the 2006 film Shortbus, but Lee still kept me interested in listening to DNTO.
The show also featured Lee's compelling interview with Jerry Givens, the former executioner for the U.S. State of Virginia. After flicking the switch on 61 inmates, he's now on the board of a group that opposes the death penalty.
