(CP) – The divine Miss M – Bette Midler (news) herself – was in Toronto earlier this week to sing and share wisecracks with a packed house at the Air Canada Centre.

“You Canadians must be so tired hearing all the guff the Americans are throwing at you,” said Midler, who starred in The First Wives Club and her own television show Bette. “It’s all your fault – mad cows, the big blackout, William Shatner (news), oh my God.” Midler seemed particularly amused by the big marijuana bust in Barrie, Ont., on the weekend.

“Wasn’t it so convenient that they were growing it in an old brewery? I think that’s so hilarious. That is so funny. Talk about your one-stop shopping, huh? I’ll have a two-four and a couple of grams right this minute, thank you very much.”

She also poked fun at Toronto’s former mayor Mel Lastman for his “Who’s WHO?” comments about the World Health Organization (news – web sites) last spring during the SARS (news – web sites) emergency, and joked about the proliferation of gay weddings in Toronto.
