O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

And now, all rise for the American Pledge of Allegience!
Oh wait, they ruled that unconstitutional anyhow, such a shame.

:wink:

If you're wondering how I know the words to O Canada, it's on the South Park movie soundtrack.
We've lost the ability to distinguish
between what's cute and what's idiotic.

Happy Canada day to you, too. Drink some maple syrup for me, eh? Or however it is that you celebrate Canada Day, do it to the extreme.

Generally, we all put on toques and say "aboot" until we pass out.

You know, there's actually a little cottage industry in Canadian humour in mocking lame American jokes about Canada. Especially our beer commercials. In one, an annoying woman at a party starts talking to a Canadian guy. "Oh, you're from Canada? Do you know Glen, from Canada? He works in an office, in Canada...says 'eh' a lot..."

"Of course, Office Glen!" Replies the Canadian. "He's dead." Then he walks off, feigning sadness.

In another, a bunch of Americans accost a Canadian in a bar, mockingly. "Hey! Canadian! Where's your pet beaver! Hahahaha!"

"Right here," responds the guy, and pulls out a rabid beaver who latches on to the guy's throat.

Forgive me, Molson's commercials are the only distinct cultural accomplishment in Canada. Everything else is imported.

An amusing joke told to me by a Canadian once

Speaking of which, how is American beer like sex in a canoe?

They're both fucking close to water.
