I think poor Jack (seems so wierd calling him Jack) had better check up on some of his wrong answers and credit those who
were right. I'm sure there was many a report card with the comment "Jack doesn't play well with others" when he was a
young pup. I guess some things never change.

Bad doggie!

The voice behind the Ford ads... is Keefer Sutherland... of "24" fame. And to anticipate your next questions, his father, Donald also did car ads... for Volvo... and his grandfather... was the most loved Canadian of all time... Tommy Douglas. How's that? :-)
