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
See Americans, how can you really complain that people think this is the real you, when so many of your citizen are badwill embassadors to the country.
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?
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.
Yes, we know. You`re not all stupid rednecks. Just most of you. That`s where stereotypes come from.
You might think we`re all maple syrup guzziling eskimo lumberjacks. So what?
Yeah, we`re all waaaaay jealous now, Palm.
As for the rest of that nonsense, I really hope it`s just a joke, otherwise SOMEbody has serious issues that require immediate attention from a medical professional.
"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
P.S.: this was recorded WAAAAAAYYYY before the "HAHAHA STUPID AMERICANS AND STUPID BUSH" phase
kind of like canada eh?
p.s. hating on america is to canada as baseball is to america, but its cool... i guess there is nothing else to do in our attic.
Yet you care enough to take the time to read the posts and provide your two cents worth. ;-)
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.
BAH HA HA HA. a 3.9 GPA but you think `anyways` is a word? and we`re not supposed to judge other countries by their leaders, which are ELECTED officials?
honey, if you can`t own up, shut up.
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.
ok sorry but i thought those clips were hilarious...hello canada our eskimo neighbors to the south!! lmao that was the best
Stop taking advantage of us!
And did you know that Canadian is actually a religeon that teaches followers to worship crocodiles? It`s true. A Canadian told me.
And for the record? In BC, we pronounce it poo-teen :D
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.
Yes, yes they do.

I <3 Americans like you.

Hockey <3...Whait snowshoeing? Dog sledding...It only snows where I live once a year If we are lucky. Its 40*c right now. IN THE SHADE. And we do have good beer, puts American beer to shame.
[quote]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.[/quote]
[quote]Why are people stereotyping the USA based on this? Come on people, the USA is an awesome place, even though its president might be a bit dense![/quote]
Actually canada is bigger than The Us, it is the 2nd largest countery in the world, first is Russia I believe
[quote] `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 [/quote]I did this sort of thing in california. People believe we dont have lightbulbs or cars. My bofriend conviced people that we had a national costume.
That boy was the best "Hey, Wait a minute. Canada has Provinces."
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.
Calm down, people. That was a joke towards Americans, not something that claimed that all Americans are idiots. You`re supposed to be able to laugh at yourselves. 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.
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
Poutine is french canadian, but anglophones can say it too.
the fact that gore didnt say anything about toronto not being the capital was funnier. take that you stupid liberals!
"The best thing about Canadians is that they do not make generalizations about others.They are wayyyy to busy shoeshoeing,playing hockey,dog sledding and drinking beer all day to do that!"umm I never ever did that shoe thing b4, I only play hockey every once in a while, I never dog sled, nore do I know anybody here that does same goes for that shoe shoeing, yes I like beer but I don`t drink it everyday and I am 21 years old. Moron..
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.
"ahhh good old dumb americans!! if us english did anything like that to say the scottish we would get our heads kicked in first for putting a camera and mic in their face, then again for asking them a question about england...heck even mentioning england up there and you are going to be chased by kilt wearing jocks with pitchforks.........but i do love my uncle!!"
^^^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.
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.
"Do you think Al Gore would know the capital of Canada is Toronto?""Well yeah, if you think it`s important."
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.
LOL that was the best one
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.
Every country goes by a fricking 24-hour clock, you buffoons!
