RE: Canada Day

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Happy C-Day, all you charming Canucks. Without you, our understanding as to the relative importance of the sport of Curling to the rise of world civilization would have been lost entirely.


Canadian bacon, Canada Dry ginger ale, Canada geese. Where would we be without your influence?


Had you not bequeathed to us the smooth theatrical stylings of William Shatner, the awful prospect of a world without the United Federation of Planets would be a reality.


And of course, with the spectre (note Canadian spelling) of Global Warming threatening, it looks as though your wondrous land will soon serve as the new Playground of the Rich and Famous, with Florida engulfed, Hawaii reduced to the size of Gilligan’s Island, and your average seasonal high temperature rising a balmy two degrees Fahrenheit.


We, O Canada, stand on guard for THEE!

For those of you between Alaska and Minnesota, have a good Canada Day! There is an Op-Ed article in the New York Times today with Canadian expats describing Canada.  My favorite is:

Back home, hockey highlights lead off SportsCenter. That is the height of civilization.
