    I don’t suppose that you could tell me where I might purchase that book entitled “Why I hate Canadians”?

    The Grand Duke

    Yay for toques!! When I first moved to the states no one knew what I was talking about when I said toque. They call them toboggans here and do not understand that a toboggan is a sled where I come from.

    Whoa, Mr. Dressup looks AWESOME!! And a little creepy.

    Yeah, Canada pretty much rocks. I’m looking forward to living a lot closer so I can take some vacays there.

    GO OILERS!!! Hahaha 🙂

    Oh, and Winston, you can get why I hate Canadians from most likely. I would think they’d sell that in the states too though.

    Actually, any book by Will Ferguson is full of essential Canadian humor. I’m reading his book “How to be Canadian” right now and every paragraph has made me laugh.

    So much goodness in one post.

    That poutine looks pretty much orgasmic.

    Remind me to tell you the story of how Mr. Dressup crushed my dreams at 7… very tragic tale.

    Oh no! Not Mr. Dressup.

    Actually, who am I kidding? I got snubbed by Buckshot at Heritage Park one year.

    It’s straight outta Calgary actually! I heard that last Canada Day and was like WTF???

    Tobaggans are definitely sleds, even way down in the Mid-Atlantic.

    And Poutine is one of the greatest gastronomical creations there are.

    ALSO, along the lines of what comes out of Calgary…the first electronic sliding door in North America was in Calgary. In the old Grand building..

    And perhaps on the more exciting side: caesars were first made in Calgary!
