Joe Varesi of Williams Lake earns a copy of the Canadian Oxford Dictionary:

You know, at this point in time, I would be more happy if less people, you know, used annoying expressions. You know, it would be more nice and very fun if at the end of the day everyone spoke real good. Personally, you know, in my opinion I think that some reporters and announcers should, you know, set an example. I mean, it's like even some CBC staff don't, you know? Even seen that professors and public figures interviewed on call-in shows, you know, speak bad. You know, I mean, no problem, but it's like not cool, you know?
