Should I say something.....
Thanks! I'm looking forward to the barbecue. And the 10:30pm fireworks display (hooray 49 N).
Dang, I knew I forgot to wear my Canada Flag shirt today ...
Had hoped to have another fun Canada Day, but shan't be able to this year.
What moron doesn't know that?
I love our neighbors to the north.
Ah yes, ze fazehrland. Good on ya, Canada!
You didn't knoo aboot that, eh? Get outta here, yah goof!
But did you know that we burned down the White House and pretty much routed you in the War of 1812. Obviously, first assist to the British, but we did push you back to St. Louis. We're not taking Steven Baldwin as retribution though.
The very significant contingent of Canadians at Safeco Field for last night's Blue Jays opener will, doubtlessly, be out-rah-rahed by themselves tonight.
To correct the blogger, they arent celebrating the 4th of July, they are celebrating Canada Day, formally called Dominion Day. The occasion marks the joining of the British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces (the Province of Canada being divided, in the process, into Ontario and Quebec) on July 1, 1867. Check your facts.
Oh, Chris @10. Where would I be without you? Also, can you help me find my ass? I'm using both hands and a map and I still can't seem to locate it.
Paul, Ass Clown @11. In honor of Canada Day, why don't you finish your review of Let's Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste.
@10 it hasn't been Dominion Day since 1982. It was changed to Canada Day after our constitution was patriated.
I'm glad its not "Dominion Day" anymore-
sounds so... foreboding.
@13 - and so has the wording of the English version of the Canadian National Anthem.
Been changed, that is.
Usually every 2-3 years.
I'll be celebrating tonight by drinking Molson and watching Canada's greatest pop-cultural export--namely,
SCTV--on the DVD. And why not?
I'll be drinking cider.
The good kind ...
Will in Virtual Montreal,
Cider? Fuck that shit!
Molson! Molson Canadian!
You know, Canada is regarded for its beer for some reason, but I've always found the big Canadian brands (Molson et al.) to be just slightly above your average American Budweiser schwill, this coming from a Real Live Canadian TM. Drinkable schwill, but schwill nonetheless. Admittedly, I do have a penchant for micro-brews and Belgian beer. I also dislike hockey...actually I think I might be disqualified as Canadian. Oops.
I grew up with Kokanee, actually.
I stand by my True North Strong And Free extra proof hard cider.
Sheesh, it's you Yanks who are behind the times. Your 4th of July is late. Your Thanksgiving Day is later. I'm surprised you don't celebrate New Years in February ;P
@10 - don't you mean Donut Day, you hoser?
