Gerry Dee On His 'Old School' Yearbooks

George surprises 'Mr D.' star Gerry Dee with a few yearbooks from his days as a teacher, and finds out how much Gerry the TV star remembers about Gerry the educator. Gerry is the author of the book 'Teaching: It's Harder Than it Looks'; Gerry also stars in the second season of Mr D. airing on CBC television starting in January 2013.

In this clip, Gerry talks about...

His favourite book

George Stroumboulopoulos: Favourite book...
Gerry Dee: What'd I say?
GS: 'The Game' by Ken Dryden.
GD: Didn't read it. Just said it. Just said it, I was a teacher... Same with 'Last Comic Standing,' they're like, 'We need it for your website, what's your favourite book?' and I said, 'Awww, Of Mice and Men was good.'
