    Believe me y’all, I am a big fan of the Canada. Four words: Maternity Leave = One Year.

    The US could learn a lot, is all I’m sayin’.

    I am 1/4 Canadian so I am 1/4 offended by that t-shirt.  The other 3/4 of me thinks it is fucking awesome and is going to buy one right now!

    If one imagined Canada as male…the best rebuttal shirt I’m coming up with is:

    THE USA: CANADA’S DICK. But it doesn’t make much sense b/c the US isn’t penis-shaped. Well, ‘cept for Florida.

    Or shoes. Or beard. OMG. THE USA: CANADA’S BEARD.

    At least we’re not America’s pantaloons. Snap, Mexico!

    *groan* Kirsten, that was soooo wrong.

    Haha, very funny. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts. Thanks!

    If that was wrong, Crystal, I don’t wanna be right, lol!

    Of course, now all I can think of is pantaloons….

    We also have paternity leave. Also one year.

    Better to be on top than the middle or bottom … Just sayin’!

    Spent my national holiday sick in bed with Sebastian Ballister (Lord of Scoundrels) and Valentin Jaus (Twilight Fall). Not a bad day, after all. ;p

    Huh.  I thought Canada was that little strip at the top of the map.

    So, why haven’t you posted anything about Cassie Edwards having suffered a stroke?

    You dragged her name through the mud but you won’t tell people she had stroke!

    Hope you’re happy!!

    Yeah, I’m sure they’re dancing a jig.  It’s exactly what they wanted to happen. 

    Don’t be ridiculous.

    Me and the boyfriend just got back from Vancouver, BC Sunday night. Great trip. Great people. The Vancouver Police Museum, cozily placed in the former Coroner’s Court and morgue building, is fascinating.

    However, we saw a shirt in a shop on Robson that made dodging all the Beautiful People worth it; “Canada likes it on top.”

    Brilliant.

    (And, OMFG, my input word? Top73.) *snigger*

    As a Canadian, I was expecting some sort of ‘beaver’ joke/shirt, so this one wasn’t bad in comparison. :-P

    I spent many a weekend of my misspent youth across the border (I grew up in upstate NY).

    typical Friday night phone call went like this-“Hey mom I won’t be home this weekend”

    “where are you”

    “we did a road trip across the border”

    “your father says to bring him home a case of beer to prove it”

    (there was at least someone in the group 18)

    Besides, it was nice in the winter to find someone colder than we were.

    I didn’t bitch about having to have a passport to go anywhere (cause I just don’t travel outside the US) until they told me I had to have one to go to Canada. Uh, so wrong on that score.

    Thanks Sarah,

    The fireworks were going all night here last night. It was a good one.

    Your 4th of July is now around the corner, always enjoyed your celebrations when I lived in the USA.

    I’ve been to Canada once and got a kick out of the familiarity and the strangeness of it all.  McPoulet?  Hilarious.  Milk in a bag?  Weird and delightful.  “Loonies” and “Toonies”?  Cute.  Porn shops in every strip mall…and not tucked around the corner and off to the side, either.  Righteous!  (I bought some dick-shaped candy.)

    I loved hearing my friend’s husband refer to American Cheese as “processed cheese product.”  Somehow “American cheese” sounds more palatable, but you gotta hand it to the Canadians for their truth in advertising.

    And I thought it was awesome that there were major recycling stands on every block corner in downtown Toronto.  I don’t spend much time in big cities here in the States—I live in Charlotte, but it’s mostly a giant, sprawling suburb with delusions of grandeur—so maybe we also have all the street-corner recycling stations.  But I doubt it.

    Oh, and I was able to buy a bottle of Sheridan’s at the duty-free station.  I can’t find it anywhere around here in the States—not in VA, MD, NC, SC, or GA.  I’ve looked.  http://www.notcot.com/images/sheridans1.jpg  Sadly, three months after my victorious return to the States, with my lovely new bottle of Sheridans, my mother came up to help me move residences and drank the entire damn bottle.  She said it was tasty.  No shit.  Now drive to Canada and buy me some more, dammit!

    So yay Canada!

    Hmmm, when I used to go over to Windsor, you had/have to be 19 to buy alcohol/beer in Canada.

    security code: passed15

    yeah, I passed15 a looooong time ago!

    When I was in high school in Michigan the drinking age in Canada was 18.  I had my first legal drink in a bar in the little town where my best friend’s family owed a cottage.  Ah, good times.  There was a lot of controversy around that time about variable drinking ages & the resulting drunk driving that a lot of kids did.  Wisconsin ended up caving & raising the legal age to 21.  Canada may have gone to 19 at the same time.

    tee hee!  I think I’m a little late commenting on this, but I just snorted some Diet Coke out my nose.  Great shirt!  I wish I had one… and I’m Canadian, too!

    Growing up, our family of 6 kids lived on Grosse Ile (island) Michigan, down river of Detroit, accross from Windsor Canada. In summer we boated, or in winter ice skated accross the river to Windsor for liquor or fireworks (among other things). We enjoyed this close access and interaction with our Canadian neigbors, in fact much of the Canadian phrasing or terms assigned as typical canadian speech, patterns are prevalent in our current phrasing to this date.

    The legal age in the states was still 18 (and was for a long time after) when I was still illegal. Although the age limit didn’t stop me here either. Hell, I never got proofed until I finally turned 18.

    Arethusa says:

    The provinces have different drinking ages but I do think the one in ON is 19 now.

    I need that shirt and also one about Mexico being USA’s pantaloons. LOL. Hilarious. Then I’d also get that one that got featured in some vodka ad…I guess showing the parts of the US that used to be owned by Mexico or something? I thought it was hilarious how upset some persons got upset about that.

    What’s really scary about that website is the number of Americans who think it’s real. Those commenters are hilarious!
