    Why do I live in a country full of idiots?

    Actually, everyone they spoke to was middle-aged. The kid in the `11 states` one caught the trick. So I have hope for my generation and the ones to come.

    DID YOU KNOW that Canada only has, like, 11 states, which is why they totally leach off of the US, which has, like, 50 of them?"
    I know this is meant to be funny but it`s kind of pathetic. Yes america has a lot of land but they are huge poluters and are led by a redneck non-nice individual.

    "Those crafty, sly canadiens!"

    Yeah, the Montreal Canadiens are sneaky buggers- us normal Canadians are mostly nice people, though. Except Scott, he`s a dick.

    And clumsy13- your post was one of the stupidest things I`ve ever read. It doesn`t even follow any kind of logic - you present one part of an argument (the 11 states copy), present your opinion on that one comment and then go off into the blue by talking about the US land holdings and how Bush is a moron. And for the love of everything holy- it`s `lead`, not `led` like the covers of your parents Zeppelin albums.

    God, I hate it when teenagers think they have something intelligent to add- it`s such a disappointment.

    Oh my. That was officially my favorite link on this website, ever. It`s going straight into my bookmarks.

    We KNOW that not all Americans are like that, I`m sure some of them caught the tricks pulled on them, they`re just not the ones we see on the videos, except for that bright kid there who said that we have provinces. But the bright Americans aren`t funny, the dumb ones are.

    Oh. I get it. Because a few Americans are retarded, that makes every American stupid. I`ll bet that if we did the same kind of thing in Canada, we could find a bunch of idiots like that! Think about how many people they interviewed that DIDN`T make it onto the show because they were actually somewhat intelligent. And don`t even say that even our president screwed up! First of all, I`ll bet there`s some Candians who can`t pronounce that name, and everyone knows George Bush is an idiot! I`m an American and I`ll agree to that! He`s the biggest idiot that`s ever graced the Oval Office, but that doesn`t mean every American is stupid. Now that I`ve gone on my super patriotic rant, I`ll go on my 12 year old gamer rant.

    ^^^Before I had alot of respect for people of other countries...but thanks to your degrading comments towards americans, my respect has lowered. But I still think that your countries are good. Sterotyping a country is just sad, you think we`re all stupid rednecks, well a good percentage of us comes from Europe. And anyways, I`m not dumb redneck, I have a 3.9 GPA. Don`t sterotype countries by looking at their leaders. Jerk.

    I`d never be able to name my congressman or find my home state on an unmarked map.

    The last time I saw that was 5 years ago on TV. I loved it, especially the part about not being able to find my home state on an unmarked map, because I was in grade 6 or something at the time.

    It`s kind of sucky that they didn`t have the part where Bush said "poutine" with his accent. It sounded like "poo tin". Or maybe that was a figment of my imagination.

    And some of the places Rick Mercer went to weren`t in middle america. I think he went to some ivy league school to ask some of the questions.

    I really should find the whole episode somewhere. Then I`ll know for sure.

    i didnt hear bush pronounce the guys name at all, all i heard was the canadian pronounce it and try to convince people how to say it. if i went over to europe and kept calling president bush, "president boush" i really doubt anyone would correct me. people pronounce things different and you dont want to make fun of someone for how they pronounce something. thats like making fun of someone with a lisp...

    the fact that gore didnt say anything about toronto not being the capital was funnier. take that you stupid liberals!

    I know Bush didn`t actually say it in the clip, but I`m pretty sure he did in the 30 minute (or 60 minute?) TV special. The real last name is Chretien, poutine is fries with gravy. And it`s not because of his accent, he said "tin" instead of "teen".

    Poutine is french canadian, but anglophones can say it too.

    It`s really actually pronounced "poo-tin" in French, "poo-tsin" with a French Canadian accent; not "teen". And it`s fries, barbecue gravy and CHEESE. Without the cheese, it`s just fries with gravy, not poutine. And it`s not as good as it should be if you`re ordering it outside of the province (not the state...) of Quebec. Nothing against the rest of Canada, but it`s kinda like ordering a burger in Japan: it`s just not the same.

    And even though people might not be able to pronounce "Chrétien" correctly, there`s still a big difference between "krey-tee-eih" and "poo-tin".

    I do agree that we didn`t hear about the people who didn`t get caught. This Hour has 22 minutes is a parody show and they make fun of pretty much everyone (especially Quebecers from my experience of the show).

    Calm down, people. That was a joke towards Americans, not something that claimed that all Americans are idiots. You`re supposed to be able t

    I feel like I have to explain my comment about poutine outside of Quebec. I didn`t mean in it a mean way at all, it`s just that the times I`ve tried it outside of Quebec, it really honestly wasn`t the same thing. The thing is that the cheese that`s used here (cheese curds) is a kind of cheese I`ve never seen anywhere else--point is, it`s what makes the poutine taste like it does. No offense meant to the other Canadians who try it; I`m not one of those "enemy of the nation" Quebecer.

SOME people are bad at geographics, and I`m sure many MANY Canadians who be terrible if an American was to pull some tricks like that on them. I`d probably be the first one... Doesn`t mean that it`s not funny.

    thanks you Enth. you dont seem to realize the hipocrisy (probly intended) of his statement. he said you dont make generalizations, and then he goes on to make a genralization about canada. congradulations. lorah didnt seem to catch that either.
    and, im not saying its an excuse or anything, but im sure some people were just being "politically correct". i mean, what are you going to say? "no your wrong, you dont know anything about your own country?" no, you wouldnt.

    The ironic thing about the Mt. Rushmore one was that the mountian was origionally deemed "worthless" and was given to the native americans as their own land to keep "forever." Of course a few years later, american miners trespassing on the indian land discovered gold, and the american government decided to claim the land back as their own, forcing the indians out once again. So new it belongs to Canada, eh?

    You have a point, and I think it works when it comes to general culture such as Toronto being the capital. But wouldn`t you be a bit surprised to hear about staple legalization?

    And calling us "Eskimo neighbours from the North" is about as far from politically correct as it gets. We don`t live THAT far North.

    SEPRATIST!

    Poo tin is the correct pronounciation (kay, I`m from Toronto, but I speak French pretty decently) but there`s more emphasis on the second sylable.

    I`m not correcting you, Fleurdelys, you probably know more about the pronounciation of poutine than I do, but this is to clarify.

    I`m glad that Canada can capitalize on a gimmick that American comedian/television hosts have been using forever. Ever see Jay Leno when he goes out and asks Americans about American geography and politics and all that? How does a Canadian coming in and asking us about Canadian geography and politics make this any more funny?

    one__eye, I know you weren`t corecting me. I said poo-tin was the right pronounciation, but being from Quebec, our accent makes us affricate the Ts in front of Us and Is. That makes poo-tin sound like "poo-tsin" here, that`s all ;)

    Oh, and one__eye? I would really appreciate it if Canadians from other provinces stopped calling me a SEPARATIST just because I only like well made poutine, dammit. I`m actually proud of being Canadian and I`d vote against separation, but anti-Quebec Canadians are probably exactly why there ARE separatists in Quebec. Jeez.

    What did Kelso say? "There`s no discrimination in Canada because they`re all too busy drinking beer, playing hockey and pouring maple syrup on their ham" it`s all truuuee!

    And for the record? In BC, we pronounce it poo-teen :D

    fleurdelys you said you have not seen it made with cheese curds anywhere else, but here in British Columbia like nine out of ten places use cheese curds. Truth be told though, the best I ever had did not, the had a big plate of fries, lots of gravey, then cheese grated over it and put through a pizza oven, it was better than any I have had with curds.

    Yes, Yes, Americans are stupid.. We elect stupid people into office, and say stupid things. However, we can kick all yo` butts in making money, stealing things, and blowing things up. We also are great lovers. So, you take the good with the bad...
    Canadians are so starved for attention, "we are a country too!" Really, no youre not. You are apractically a protectorate of the USA. You piggy back on our national security, thats how you provide that health care you never shut up about. If you had to employ more that 2 dozen douche bags on horses (HORSES!!) your teeth would rival Englands, and livers, Ireland. So take your free drugs, and if you knew what was good for you... shut the hell up.

    Ok first off, Americans when we say your stupid it`s kind of like when you make the snowshoe and beaver jokes k` GET OVER YOURSELVES!.
    To canadians when they talk about the snowshoe stuff at least 85% of the time they are joking (if they are nto it is rightfully your duty to play the "your stupid card" card. In short TAKE IT EASY!
    Oh yes and palm if you have even ben to Canada heck even seen a picture of Canada it would contradict everything you just said, you sir are the biggest rednecked hillbilly dumba$$ here. Congratulations, you just made all of america look bad.

    fleurdelys, you`re totally talking to a french immersion student. Haha. I guess my point is that George Bush says poutine WRONG. (Whether he`s pronouncing it in english or french.) And I have no clue why my original description didn`t include cheese curds or any mention of cheese.

    This post is a tribute to the pronounciation and taste of poo teen.

    Also, I was kidding about the sepratism thing. I couldn`t tell if you were a separatist or not (I mean you were talking about fries with cheese and gravy for god`s sake), and it doesn`t really matter to me. But I like Quebec and don`t want it to leave.

    My fellow Americans,

    You really should not be offended by this. We have children`s cartoons depicting the Japanese as yellow men with buck teeth. Every country has it`s fair share of making fun of everyone else and you would be quite hypocritical to take it to heart. Not everyone in our country is dumb; if we were, we would not be a country. We`d be owned by another one.

    This is funny. And i dont think that all americans are stupid. All canadians who think that all americans are this dumb should be forced to kick their own buts. And to all the euros out their. We dont care about your opinion on a topic that does not concern you.

    "I bet you dont even know the capitol of england."

    "Well I know what its not. And its not Berlin. And I`m pretty sure thats because of us."

    This was originally said by a americain comedian. I forgot his name. I`m not plageurising. Just repeating

    Fire frog, pinker, sicker, simcoe, -Neoncarrot-: Exactly.

    Palm:
    You just lowered yourself down to the American that degrades your country and the people unlike you. Learn to laugh at yourself. And how do stealing things help anything? That`s one of the things the world doesn`t need.

    What do horses have to do with teeth?

    Not all of our land is barren tundra. Frankly it`s pretty warm right now...35 degrees celcius. The _barren tundra_ is all far up north.

    Why hide underground like mole people when you can go skiing, snowboarding, icefishing, play hockey and skating?

    I`d say more but I`ve done enough typing.

    I keep seeing the word "stupid" pop up but that`s not actually what the show is about. The complaint against Americans is actually IGNORANCE. There are people in it who must be fairly intelligent to have graduated law school or earned high posts in government, albeit there are some exceptions. *coughs* Dubya! *coughs*

    Stupidity is easier to excuse -- some people are just born smarter than others. That`s the way the world works. There is no excuse for ignorance though. It`s everyone`s responsibility to be informed about the world around them -- and by "world" I mean places BEYOND your own country`s borders, and not only when they pose a terrorist threat. The United States (as a whole... I want to be careful here!) think they`re the most important country in the world so why would they waste their time on trivial details?

    One of the principal land masses of the earth, usually regarded as including Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America.


    (http://www.answers.com/continent)

    Does that answer your question?

    Also, I did not know that such a simple post would get all the americans so pissed off. those people who have spazzes at this need to lighten up. "Lets have a big debate over which country is better!" "Even better... lets have complete sh*tfits when someone shows our worse side" ...... tards

    easy "palm" I figured a male over the age of thirty would be a bit more mature than that man. Yeah, America helps protect us, but thats because we are ALLIES. and since you guys ahev so many more people, you have so many more taxpayers, and so you can buy so many more weapons, and employ so many more soldiers. thats the gist of it. if we had a bigger army, im sure wed do the same for you. we used to have a kickass military until about the seventies, when some idiot thought we wouldnt need a big one anymore....seriously, in ww2 we had one of the worlds largest navies...now i think we have like.. 30 boats total. but were fixing that.
