please tell me that you guys realize this is fake?
Let us have our day. By the way their jokes were not that funny my dad has a girly-esque name but thats no reason to pick on him
I`ll grant that YOU and fancy take user input seriously - I don`t have anything that indicates otherwise.
However - that concern doesn`t seem to transfer to Davy. In his own words, ("If I come across as being a "dick", well, fair enough, can`t change that.") Davy dismisses my feedback and indicates an unwillingness to make change as a result. Can he ACTUALLY do something about it? Obviously it`s quite simply a matter of changing his avatar to something more appropriate. Will he though? It appears not. His distain for this audience is clear.
Also are they worried about Russia? When did we go back to the `50s?
This is why I hate the United States and the morons who run it.
If I were American, I`d be pissed. Sure, they`re making fun of Canadian stereotypes, but they`re propelling American stereotypes. There`s a big difference.
And that`s davy`s point.
We all try hard to make this site the best damn website on the internet. It`s the reasons we`re mods -- we love I-A-B. That being said, we`re just as much a part of the user base as all of you are and believe me when I say we hate reposts as much as all of you do -- both personally and for the fact that it bothers you guys.
But like deleting midget porn and that god dammned aloochaat sh*t comes with the territory of being a mod, reposts come with the territory of being a user of a "submitted content" type of website like I-A-B. It happens, and it`s one of the ONLY things about this website that complaining about doesn`t help. So yeah, when people do complain about it, it`s a bit irksome. It`s something that has to be accepted.
I rest my case.
I thought that this was a joke at the expense of the ignorance of certain Americans when I saw it - not an example of American ignorance in action!!
Not a single funny stereotype - joke. US army is present in 2/3 of the countires in the world. To "rely" on the US Army is not the right word to describe world situation without a bipolar power distribution. There is no choice for others. So, enemies are "liberated" and allies "rely" on biggest power in the world. Price for this? Well USA spends dollars on weapons while allies spends money on their people. You have realy to make an effort to end up homeless in lets say Norway or Canada. While homeless people are common social occurance in USA. Incredible. Sad.
important thing is that this guys make "jokes" based on realy sad fact.
"this is why i hate americans. they serisouly think they own the world. knobs."
Those knobs don`t speak for all of us, please believe me.
Also Gutfield is NOT sorry, after he issued his apology, he put on his twitter "Sorry Canada, you can atleast beat the Belgians". Like what the hell is that?
This video just berates me and annoys me because it was just straight up bashing, I mean there`s a fine line, and they crossed it big time.
also, Doug Benson, what are you doing? get off of Fox News! now that I know you are willing to go on this show, I automatically think you are 50% less funny. this makes me sad
Also, I think you need to chill, Boomstick. There is nothing offensive about davy`s avatar. We all love this site, so don`t bite the hand that feeds you. or in this case, makes you laugh.
Please, stop. Just stop. Shut off the lights, lock the building, go home and stop subjecting the world to this ignorant crappola!
The Intelligent American Populace
Putting up with midget porn and repost comments goes with the territory.
Thank you,by the way for your work-which is much appreciated.
That having been said,my opinion of your avatar hasn`t changed. It is overtly rude and dismissive of the fact that viewers here really are IAB`s bread and butter. Treating them like crap is just simply not cool. As a mod tasked with maintaining a level of civility here, I would have expected you to set a better example.
If someone puts up repost comments and you want to direct a response to the offender, then I don`t think that would be inappropriate.Your avatar, though, isn`t exactly a targetted strike. Collateral rudeness is experienced by those whose comments are more meaningful or those who choose not to comment at all.
As for Canada, all I have against them is the ridiculous seal cull that`s going on right now. Otherwise they seem pretty awesome :D
If you knew how much effort goes into keeping IAB the way you see it as a user, because of the constant War On Crap that we fight here to keep it clean, then you`d understand how frustrating it is when people scream REPOST! Indeed there are many users who have only ever MADE that single comment, never contribute in any other way and never submit links.
So I`m sorry if my avatar offends you in any way, but I stand by it. We DO value the users (customers) above all else, which is why we do what we do. If I come across as being a "dick", well, fair enough, can`t change that. However I can assure you that the job IAB Moderator is the very definition of "Thankless Task".
I assume you`re referring to my avatar?
I, along with my fellow moderators, spend hours per day on IAB, deleting animated gifs of midget porn, cleaning out profuse amounts of links to spam, and banhammering vast amounts of racial and sexual hate-speech. We don`t get paid a penny for this, we`re not "staff", we`re just regular users like yourself who try to help out, on a completely voluntary basis.
We also try our damnedest to make sure there are no reposts. But, with over 17000 links on IAB stretching back 8 years, sometimes we make a mistake. And believe me, when there IS a repost, then that`s a failure on our part and we feel bad.
Canada lost almost as many Marines on Omaha Beach as the United States. They were fighting side-by -side with the United States. I will always remember that. D-Day may have failed without them.
Your determination to dismiss the feedback of those who watch IAB evidences some lack of good judgement on your part. It`s basic customer service. IAB offers a service... we who find our way here in search of entertainment are basically customers. There`s no such thing as a successful business model that does not value, or at least pretend to value, customer feedback.
Also you don`t have to be such a dick.
This could have been taken right off a Middle School playground. Wow. And you`re wondering why America`s reputation has been plummeting?
i wish fox news would just cease to exist. such horrible, biased nonsense should never be allowed to be presented to the viewing public as "fair and balanced" reporting.
Spellchecker wouldn`t go amiss though.
I find the people on this video offensively jolly
Canada does actually have a military. However, it is a chronically under-funded and fundamentally troubled organization.
Let me be clear those serving deserve enormous respect from both sides of the boarder. The systemic problems that are making the Canadian military more and more of a joke all the time are all the more reason to honour those who serve in it.
The luxury to not invest heavily in a well-prepared and highly trained military is entirely due to Canada`s geographic proximity to the US.
Of course no relationship is ever one-sided. Americans depend on Canadian imports of key natural resources, without which they would be lost as well.
I guess that makes us even. We`ll throw in Morissette and Lavigne for free.
Lol, you don`t see Mexico helping USA, do you?
"We should make an agreement with Mexico to saw off the USA at the border."
Plans to make a skyway going straight from Canada to Mexico have already begun, sir.
FYI dickweed. It is called freedom of speech. 90% of Americans recognize Fox News for what it is: bottom of the barrel info-tainment, which puts it on a par with any broadcast bilge that eminates from the CBC! der doo doo doo, der doo doo doo! eh?
If you dont believe me then ask yourself this: why else would they even endure a chanel like Fox News in the first place?
I wouldn`t do that, but if that is you in your avi... mock away I say.
I don`t take this too seriously. If one of the people hosting this show is the guy from super high me, how could I?
So in other words, I`M GOING TO IGNORE YOUR VALID POST AND MOCK YOUR GRAMMAR SKILLS.
`bout three fiddy
O Canada we`ll stand on guard next year!
I watched it and hoped that those people in the video weren`t serious on what they thought Canada was about. If they were trying to be funny they did a horrable job at it.
LOL well that sheds some light on the situation. Relax Canada, we don`t want these kind of Americans liking us anyways.
Oh, it is real..
Seriously, shut up.
Also, I am pretty sure this is not a real show, it seems to be some failed parody of The Onion mixed with The Daily Show...
Nonetheless, we don`t have 300 million people here, we have 30 Million. So we have much less of our budget going towards our military. So if we use our equipment for 5 years straight without taking the time to make sure everything is functional, we could risk becoming as useless in battle as the US Army. (Who are actually more effective, but that`s only because of the numbers. Canadians are better trained and more effective with everything we do)
Also, we are getting out of Afghanistan because the battle is over, we are retiring our forces and attempting to allow a stable government to establish itself.
I`m in the Canadian Forces with friends over in Afghan
Yes I am... Now excuse me while I un-bunch my panties.
Oh really? I thought all the mounties rode mythical unicorns on the Country`s only road! Some people may be that stupid, but a vast majority of Americans are not, despite what you`re pop culture myths would have you believe. Stop being ignorant.
Nice spelling btw.
CrabesMale, 30-39, Canada"America is dying in debt from Irak war. And the guy says "the greatest army in the universe". I would like too see USA against China army. "
In a 21st century total war, everyone dies. It`s called mutually assured destruction via nuclear weapons.
Its funny, they steal a large salt truck and write all sorts of derogatory things on it about Canada.
Mountie pulls them over - and says, You know, in Canada we have laws. All signs have to be in both English AND French. So he makes them write all the insults in french also.
Come on Canada! We love you!
I`ve always been impressed with the way that Canadian parents wake up every morning to take their 5 year old beaver to the frozen maple syrup rink for hockey practice.
LIGHTEN UP CANADA!
I don`t understand why they keep going on and on and on about Canada... do they care about it that much?
HAHA!!!!!!!! ARE YOU dratING SERIOUS?
Nope fairly sure I`ve been here 2 years.
most police here are RCMPthey just dress up in their stupid uniforms for special things, so you`ve seen them, just not all dressed up
yeah in the states hahaha you guys can have the weird people, you already do have most of the obece ones
"Burnsy777: "inb4Americans-need-more-land-because-they-are-fat-joke"oh no you didnt you damn moosefu*ker..."
hey its not legal here, unlike some parts of your country ahahahahahahaha
I should note that I`ve found most American`s I`ve met online to be very knowledgeable about Canada, with some exceptions of course.
Are all 318 posts about this topic?
bobhub600 - "anyway this has to be a joke otherwise fox has to be filled with the biggest douchebags...in the universe"
I`m fairly certain this isn`t a joke, so....
oh no you didnt you damn moosefu*ker...
1. Exceeding what is natural or necessary; superabundant; exuberant; as, a redundant quantity of bile or food.
Notwithstanding the redundant oil in fishes, they do not increase fat so much as flesh. --Arbuthnot.
Yep we sure are "redundant".
Now to the video: As a Canadian, I find it HILARIOUS! I don`t get the whole "insulted" feelings, because I`ve learned to laugh at myself.
Don`t worry, all Americans with more brain-power than a wet rock vehemently HATE every single man woman and child that works at, likes, or even doesn`t hate that stupid drating T.V. channel.
And if you think for a second that all Americans are like this, then you are just as drating stupid as fox.
Easy for people to get through Canada? Maybe because we aren`t prejudiced and allow more than one race in our country.
There is no dratin language call "American" unless you mean butchered, Ebonics like English.
Calling us a ridiculous country? Mature.
Making fun of us for leaving the war when most of Americas troops will be out soon also, stupid.
Saying you are the best country in the universe is pushing it, you`re in a dratin recession and have been at war for 8 years.
Our Police Forces don`t ride around on horses and wear dratin red, we also have less of a need for armored cars because we don`t have as much crime. And we have dratin bulletproof vests.
We arent up here in the "frigid cold", surprisingly it isn`t cold for us.
Saying we "rely on the USA" is just stupid. We are part of the same land mass, we have virtually the same resources, and if you guys stopped trading with us we would just find alternatives. We don`t "rely" on the USA, we just buy from you because you sell for the cheapest.
Why the drat would Russia invade Alaska? That makes no sense at ALL.
And as ChrisMunich said: "He seems to imply that having a constantly engaged military would be a good thing?"
Andrew155, I`m in the UK, so I`m experiencing what`s going on here first-hand. Can you explain to me how we`re doing worse than you guys are? Last month your unemployment rate was 8.1%. In the UK it`s currently 6.5%. Five minutes with Google found me those figures.
These are not "correspondents" as some of you sharp individuals seem to believe. To prove my point, one of the "correspondents" is a used NY times with a string attached to it. You have to be over-sensitive idiots with no sense of humor whatsoever to take this seriously.
Je pense que les gens canadiens ont besoin d`un sens de l`humour. SÃ
and i will look like a complete moron if i am wrong. i hope im not"
Nope, it`s real. One of those guys got fired for it I think.
Don`t you have to go to college to become a journalist? Oh wait, these are `correspondents`.
Did anyone else get super annoyed at the guys` voices and mannerisms? Seemed like real pretentious f-cks.
I am no expert but perhaps that General was speaking of one certain unit that needs a break not the ENTIRE Canadian force. I don`t know.
Thankfully, I know many Americans with much more sense then that.
Now it makes sense.
anyway this has to be a joke otherwise fox has to be filled with the biggest douchebags...in the universe
America is Canada`s underwear. :P
