    Know what I mean, eh?

    Know what a fiberal is, a zamboni, the GST? Don't think the tar sands has to do with cigarettes? Wondering the answer to questions like why do you pay more for oil in the country that drills it, than the country you send it to? Were you snowbound last month, laughing at your television set as Al Gore strode up to the podium to receive his oscar for a movie about Global Warming? If so, we can talk Buffy in Canadian.

    Yeah right...and I bet you think hockey is an international game too. Silly Americans. :lmao:

    Canadians : king : : king : : king : of all things hockey. Pucks, sticks, lack of 2 front teeth. We own all those trademarks.

    We used to own the copyright on good beer too. Then the Canadian breweries got bought out by international owners.

    But onto the Canadian perspective of Buffy/Ange/Firefly and all things Whedon.

    Have you seen this?

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=l6PY-y9LMRI

    It's a cut from a Vancouver newscast about how they are making Firefly fan movies there. I heard they do it in other countries too, but that's most likely a rumour. ;)

    Did you see where in honour of Buffy's 10 year birthday the Toronto Star did an interview with Canadian author (I think she's from Winnipeg) Nikki stafford who writes books about Buffy/Angel?

    http://www.thestar.com/artsentertainment/article/187953

    Joss should reform Mutant Enemy and make stuff for Canadian TV. We'd treat him right.

    Things for Canadians to be proud of

    1. Smarties.


    2. Crispy Crunch, Coffee Crisp.

    3. The size of our footballs fields and one less down.

    11. In the war of 1812, started by America, Canadians pushed the Americans back...past their 'White House'. Then we burned it...and most of Washington, under the command of William Lyon MaKenzie , who was insane and hammered all the time. We got bored because they ran away, so we came home and partied...Go figure..

    12. Canada has the largest French population that never surrendered to Germany.


    13. We have the largest English population that never ever surrendered or withdrew during any war to anyone. anywhere. EVER.


    14. Our civil war was fought in a bar and it lasted a little over an hour.

    15. The only person who was arrested in our civil war was an American mercenary, who slept in and missed the whole thing... but showed up just in time to get caught.


    16. We knew plaid was cool far before Seattle caught on.


    17. The Hudsons Bay Company once owned over 10% of the earth's surface and is still around as the worlds oldest company.


    18. The average dog sled team can kill and devour a full grown human in under 3 minutes.

    19. We still know what to do with all the parts of a buffalo.


    20. We don't marry our kin-folk.

    21. We invented ski-doos, jet-skis, velcro, zippers, insulin, penicillin, zambonis, the telephone and short wave radios that save countless lives each year.


    22. We ALL have frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it.


    23. A Canadian invented Superman.


    24. We have coloured money.

    25. Our beer advertisments kick ass.

    BUT MOST IMPORTANT!

    24. The handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands with mitts on. OOOoohhhhh Canada!!

    25. And we don't bomb our allies.


    oh yeah... and our elections only take one day.

    Pass this on, if you are proud to be Canadian!!!


    I AM CANADIAN!!!

    Good one Tabula Rasa. I got that email too. :)

    Are you coming to Canuckistan UlaGan? Try the prairies you'll feel homey. Lots of your countrymen, and similar landscape. Good Borscht in Winnipeg. Yum, Yum.

    For sheer knock you on your butt beauty though, the Rocky Mountains and the West Coast. They have the Rocky Mountains in America too, but they shrink as soon as they cross the border. They level them out to put up fast food franchises, and trinket shops. And on the Californian West coast the ocean is blue. What a stupid color for an ocean. It's supposed to be green like it is in BC.

    Because even the Germans in their bid for World Domination had standards?
    French is bad enough but French-Canadian?!?!?
    We stopped using the term 'French Canadians' in the UK some years back, now we say mentally challenged:)


    I don't think anyone should brag about Celine Dion.
    Southpark had that one right.

    I'm kidding, I tease because I love, I mean I had Canadian Bacon once and that was quite nice.

    I'm not Canadian but I've always wanted to go there for some reason...it just seems like it'd be more fun to be in Canada than the US. Yup, I'm strange...but hey I've never ever been to another country! When I was a child I wanted to grow up and change my name to Max and move to Canada. I had a thing with the name Max...
     
    Bangelxx: I dunno that it would be any better! lol! I've been to the US a lot and it seems almost better than canada!

    A Captain of a nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the pride of the American navy, in heavy fog.
    A blip is noted on the radar screen, the captain is informed. He contacts the unidentified 'ship'. The captain states who he is and what ship he is on and asks the other craft to alter its course. The reply was that the craft was in the Canadian navy and that it wouldn't alter it's position.
    That annoyed the captain of the aircraft carrier just a bit, he started saying how he was in charge of the largest ship in the American navy and if they didn't move out of it's way there would be an international incident.
    There was no reply for a while, then a voice was heard. This is a lighthouse, we're not moving, your call.
    Oh yeah, that is said to be true !.
