Canada Day!

Well, here we are. It's been a full year spent waiting for this very day and specifically, this very moment. For those of you that don't know, it happens to be one of the most important days of the year on my calendar - Canada D(Eh?)! (Lame, I know...)

I'm all dressed to the nines in my best Canadian-style clothing (made in Taiwan) and I've made a pledge to eat exclusively authentic Canadian cuisine today. Before I left my house, I poured the 2 full gallons of milk I had in my fridge into a couple Ziploc© bags, so I could truly get into the spirit and the tradition of the great country, whose glorious and nearly magical day we celebrate today.

This day is one for the ages. A day to celebrate the rich, diverse culture of our Northerly neighbors, and their fantastic contributions to our world. While their actual positive contributions may be quite scarce, we should take time to recognize their contributions in general, and deal with them accordingly. One example would be the band Nickelback, another would be William Shatner, Avril Lavigne would be a 3rd. as you can see, not many good things come from Canada, but today is a day to forget all of that. It's Canada's day people! Get on board!

Anyway, I'm off to Tim Horton's for some Timbits and a coffee spiked with some Newfie Screech. You keep it real Canada!


  1. Haha- I forgot their milk comes in bags! Crazy canucks. Well, you forgot 4 to the Canadian list of shame (perhaps they're best left forgotten): Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Howie Mandel, Keanu Reeves...

    HOWEVER... I disagree that not many good things come from Canada, as some of my favorite comedians and actors do, like:

    Keifer Sutherland
    John Candy
    Mike Myers
    Dan Aykroyd
    Phil Hartman
    Eugene Levy
    Jim Carrey
    Leslie Nielson
    Catherine O’Hara
    Martin Short

  2. Joey Votto is an acceptable Canadian.

  3. With obama in office, I'd like to relocate to Canada most days.
