shhhhhhhh...they are having fun. Let them be.

Perhaps we should place more coal fed power plants near the border? I heard it does wonders for their lakes. But it's true most Americans don't know very much about Canada other than that they pay something like 50% of their pay in income taxes. Oh wait, sounds like the US, doesn't it?

Does this have something to do a-boot the Lablatt's Blue commercials about Americans?

ughhh, don't mention that beer, please.

I don't know, it looks like they are having fun, and if it's at the expense of the ignoramuses of the United States, then I am all for it. Please notice they did say that they avoid military types because they are more up on their geography. The overall thrust of the article seems to be the large difference in cross-border awareness between Canada and the US. My general feeling is that the Canadians are excessively preoccupied with being "distinct from American." Goody for them. Look, they have 1/10 our population, and they are good neighbors. Who would you rather have to the north? Maybe the Republic of Congo? quote from American: "Idaho, what part of Canada is that?"

No thanks beekeeper. I like it just fine South of the Border, and would rather continue to pay my taxes to support the honorable Feinstein, Clinton and Schumer. I said the Canadians were good neighbors. Didn't say I wanted to live there. :)

Okay, Striker. But be honest: do you drink that pisswater Labatt Blue stuff?

Beekeeper-- If I was insulted by your comments, I would have deserved judicious readjustment via a size 12 Florsheim in the the groin. No, I see what you mean, and I always heard horror stories about the Quebecois who would come down into Northern NY and pretend not to speak English. But I still think that given the options, there aren't all that many countries I'd rather have up there. Maybe Austrians, but they don't seem nutty enough.

Sorry Ron, How's that glacier doing in UP? You got to love the North Country.

This is a non issue. Canada is so non threatening and a vague place to most Americans; we just don't even think about it. [sex]

Haven't laughed like that for a while. Thanks. Just think guys, most likely those responding to the guys questions can vote. Democracy, the Greek practical joke that just won't end.

Several years ago my wife and I were in Quebec City. We bought a big piece of the best smoked salmon I have ever ate, at a large common market. 2 years ago, during another vacation to Maine, we went back. Of course the salmon vendor was gone, nothing is ever the same the 2nd time around. We searched the city in vain, no one had a clue as to where we could get some smoked salmon, a major product of Canada. On the way out we found it, at the Duty free shop! It was not as good. Before they get a laugh on us, the Canadians ought to figure out where in the Hell they keep their salmon!

Canada - the 51st state! Just kidding, i know that gets them going. Seriously tho, my Canadian friend told me to ask Canadian's who their first PM was. I forget now too, but 90% of Canucks don't know either. But everyone know GW was our first. Go figure. Hey, we're all on the same side.

Got 'em drunk! ROFLMAO! No,no, Jethro Tull (the band, now) is much, MUCH better than Rush. Rush is good and all, but there is no comparison.

Say what you want about Canucks, but I like the way they drive through the US of A like they have diplomatic immunity--every time a car passes me going 90--Ontario plates. Do they have any speed limits up there? Maybe they plan to use the "metric defense." Oh wait, 80km/h is really like 45mph. Guess that blows that idea...

I for one think canada would make a great adition to the US. I figure eventually Quebec will split off and then the rest of the country can join the US.
