Canadian World Domination. It's all about the beer, the beavers, and total and utter capitulation from the rest of the civilized world.

... and it's an insult to Canada.

fbeach - I don't get it. How is it an insult to Canada? It's hilariously funny, and manages to get a few valid points about America's culture across, which, after all, it is trying to ape.

I saw Canadian Bacon, too. Big deal.

Canada is a good neighbor. Their cities are clean, their medicines are cheaper and some of their chicks are hot. All their hockey teams are moving to the States where we mop the floor with Canucks.

It's all good. 'Nuff said.

You know a country can't be bad when some of their chicks are hot! As well as wonderfully cynical, which few americans seem to know of canadians.

briank:come out of the corner, that was funny.

-A *hot* Canadian.

Hey, Sid, funniest link text I've seen in a long time. Have a maple bar on me.

She can dominate me anytime, meowr.

The Communist menace on our Northern border must be eradicated at all costs.

Who's with me?

You mean the Eskimos? I'm with you!

Insult? bahah. That site has always been a laugh. And it's so canadian in that oh-so-canadian kind of way. Canadians seem to laugh at their own stereotypes a lot - Canadian Bacon and South Park the movie were probably laughed at more here than in the states. Chilly Beach is hilarious too.

...though I find this post rather redundant, as I could have sworn I have seen this site here at least once or twice before (or maybe that was in its previous pre domain incarnation?).

and that beaver kicks ass.

If this is the same CWD site I saw several years back, I've actually met the mastermind behind the site. The girl who runs it is incredibly intelligent, and was a student at the University of Waterloo. I had the opportunity to meet her during a job interview and she just totally blew me away with her energy and expertise.

Let me know when they take over the US so I can go home.

But where is the corresponding French translation for the Francophones?

Mais où correspondant la traduction est-elle française pour le Francophones?

(Yeah, yeah, I used Babel Fish; I took Latin instead of French, allright?)

Instead of Babel Fish, try this.

Ooh, I have a canadian story. A girl in my class last semester was from canada, and she was grousing about our non-metric measurements, and she sez "What does 'pt' stand for?" and I sez "It stands for 'pteradon.' There's twelve pteradons in a gallon, and that's the measurement people at gas stations prefer you to order by. Just ask for 100 pteradons and" <edited for brevity and because it wasn't actually all that funny> -- and she bought it!!! Hahahahahhaha!

Anyone in the US seen "This Hour Has 22 Minutes"? It's a satirical look at current events. One of my favourite segments is "Talking to Americans." In one of these, they told students at Harvard that in Canada, we put old people on ice floes and send them off to die. They were circulating a petition to stop this, and lots and lots of America's brightest (or richest) were signing. You see, we think we're smarter than you, and a lot of the time, we're right... ;)

sonofsamiam: Be careful. Every Canadian has at least 5 or 6 anecdotes that begin with "I was in the states one time..." and end with "... <sigh> Americans are so stupid."

Sure, they aren't all true, but not all Americans are stupid, so it balances out.

<shifty look>

Canadian satirical comedy is great (esp. 22 minutes). I think Canadian humour has a nice mix of British wit and satire, and American potty humour, or something. We're nicely in the middle.

Any country that gave the world a city called "Moose Jaw" is A-OK in my book.
posted by Skot at 8:31 AM on February 28, 2001

Or "Flin Flon."
posted by rodii at 9:04 AM on February 28, 2001

or "Moose Factory"

Has anyone read the hate mail? Some of it is good-natured ribbing right back at them, but some of the posts are frighteningly stupid.

Mais où est la traduction correspondante pour les Francophones? :)

Heh. I'd say something to mock that page of hate mail, but I think it mocks itself pretty well.

My favourite: "Fuck you and the queen"

Preach on, Yankee brother. Preach the fuck on.
