    The "EU" flag is particularly amusing.

    I don`t think the USA is a "one issue" nation, especially an issue that happened 10+ years ago...

    All this is doing is stereotyping countries of the world. It`s confusing because it`s portrayed like it`s being meaningful. The figures are complete buIl poo.

    And don`t more people watch hockey than play hockey in Canada? So the colors would be the other way around..unless that was supposed to be a joke, in which case: shame on you

    @TuffGhost88; I don`t think that you understand that every municipal park is equipped with a well-maintained rink; the boards of which go up in October in anticipation for subzero weather. At these municipal park rinks the sounds of pucks slapping against board can be heard long into the night. It is one of the most prosaic sounds (in the cities I`ve lived in at least) and yet somehow, it is so poetic.

    Besides, I want to let you in on a little secret; the red:white ratio of the Canada flag is 1:2:1 and that`s only including the red-white-red vertical tribands. With the addition of the maple leaf, there is actually more red in the Canadian flag than white.

    Was this supposed to be funny or just mean and cruel?
