One of the few occassions I will proudly wear red! (others during Olympics and World Jr. tournament)
Happy Canada Day to all the Michigan fans up north, enjoy the holiday!
Land of the look how good we are! We invented basketball! First pro hockey league was in the UP of of Michigan and hockey was invented by the Brits.
I tossed out an ill-advised joke. I'm from Florida, which is arguably America's crazy penis-shaped gun land.
See that's why America is awesome! Because 'Murica even has a crazy penis-shaped gun land. Where's Canada's penis shaped gun land? Where I ask you?!
Our national mascot is a beaver.
All those things great.
Not to mention our football championship is 50 years older than yours...
So the next time you are watching an iMax movie drinking a tub of Canada Dry ginger ale while injecting insulin into you diabetic ass. Thank Canada as the paramedics use their WalkieTalkies and push your electric wheel chair into their ambulance.
(Just in case you were't aware, this is all tongue in cheek, since some of you seem to fail at humour)
Vernors, sir, puts your weak tasting sissy ginger ale to shame. How dare you bring up Canada Dry as a source of pride, even in a tongue in cheek manner!
Also mixes well with whiskey, for those looking for an early drinking thread.
bubbles the size of marbles that levitate into your nose initiating the greatest sneezing fit ever. I love that stuff! Whiskey eh? Must try it.
Diet Vernors and Vinella Vodka. This is my 2014 summer drink.
It's what we drink around here.
Well next time your going in for free health care thank the US for it's greatest invention: freedom.
...you gave us The Bieber. That said Canada Dry does kick Vernors ass.
O Canada is so much better than the Star Spangled Banner.
Home of the Beer Store!
It (and the LCBO [Liquor Control Board of Ontario]) are remnants of Prohibition and are hurting the craft beer industry in Toronto. (Edit: And in the rest of Ontario.)
As an aside, I believe the Beer Store is only in Ontario.
That's only in English speaking Canada. Those of us in French speaking Canada can buy beer at our corner stores.
Happy birthday, eh!
thread is not progressing as I imagined it would.
They never do...
It is MGoBlog dood. Where almost everything has good intentions and then takes a sharp left to East Lansing.
Ah, it's all in good fun. Besides, they still have pictures of England's queen hanging in their border crossing.
But they use the metric system! The metric system! I don't know how fast I'm driving when up there, or how far I have to go. No one even knows what the temperature is! Who bases a temperature system on on the freezing and boiling point of water? Seriously, who does that?
The entire world, except for you guys..
What do you mean, "you guys"?
It's great that the guy who just recently posted
Just in case you were't aware, this is all tongue in cheek, since some of you seem to fail at humour
totally missed the joke.
Oh I didn't miss it, I was embellishing it!
anyone who's gone through engineering school knows how much better metric is than english.
Anytime we had to do a problem in english units I was "Dafuq is a slug?...Wait, and is this pounds-mass or pounds-force?"
canada easily has the #2 national anthem on the planet. beautiful country. played a lot of hockey there back in the day.
Alright, I throw this out there: Canada's national anthem is a lot better than the US'. The lyrics and poem of the US' is great...but set to music it's just too damn hard. I love singing O Canada though.
(nor do i), but the star spangled banner is the anthem, and all of it's verses too. remember it was written while francis soctt key was watching the battle, not during some gentile victorian version of a 'jam session' in 17 or 18 whatever.
also, the NSA trolls this board for it's national intel significance, and any one of you who chimed in for another country's anthem, well, you guys are in big trouble. i bet your computer gets crashed, your dog goes missing, your car won't start, all sorts of stuff. you heard it here first...
God Save The Queen reigns supreme. Next is Germany's.
The Star-Spangled Banner is turrible. America the Beautiful should be the national anthem.
God Save the Queen is just a ripoff of 'My country 'tis of thee'
"God Save The Queen" predates "My Country Tis of Thee".
I'll go with the Sex Pistols' version. As for America the Beautiful... yep.
Well what about when England's current monarch dies, and a dude takes the throne? Then the national anthem is all wrong. And the problem with Germany's is that it's in German. Thus is just sounds like they want to kill everyone.
Guile's theme should be our national anthem. Now go home and be a family man!
