Harmonicas Help Canadian Soldiers Kick the Elwood Blues

A company in Canada is sending one harmonica to each Canadian soldier stationed in Afghanistan — 2,600 in all.

The store, called Music Stop, is trying to help alleviate the depression of being so far away from home during the holidays. Couple that with the Pamela Anderson’s breakup, and the Canuck Army is in an emotional funk due to being so far away at a time when two of Canada’s most famous natives is now single. That’s where the harmonicas come in. The misery of listening to hundreds of people trying to play a harmonica will make the other depressing and miserable stuff in Afghanistan pale in comparison.

On the downside, I’m told that the Taliban are now listening to John Mayall albums as a terrorist training tool for tracking Canadian troop movements.
