That was the year Celine Dion's parents were married.

I suggest we travel back in time and kill or otherwise prevent the coupling of Celine Dion's ancestors

Whats most amazing is that the Canadian army (both guys) are still using the same equipment now.

It's not our fault, Blame Canada!
 
2003-02-06 09:14:22 AM  
Thats ok, we have already started our invasion of the U.S. We have already penetrated your media, entertainment and medical industries. In 2008, you will all be wearing toques, playing hockey, watching SCTV and drinking our beers. Mooooohahahaha ;-]
 
2003-02-06 09:15:38 AM  
Just give me a keg of Canadian and I'll be happy!
 
2003-02-06 09:16:26 AM  
...huh...

Why do you think they call it "CANADIAN" bacon???

think about it.
 
2003-02-06 09:17:19 AM  
Ranold, we are already drinking your beers. In fact, I was just in your refridgerator stealing them! MWHAHAAHAAAHA!!!

War signs for the US-Canada war in 1920:

"TO HECK WITH QUEBEC"

"NICE TO KNOW YA, MANITOBA"

"FIRE'S CATCHIN' ON IN SASKATCHEWAN"

"I'LL TAKE A DUMP ON YA, BRITISH COLUMBIA"

"YOU BETTER FLEE FROM CALGARY"

"LET'S ABORT THE GREAT WHITE NORTH"

"WE OUGHTA KILL OTTAWA VILLE"

"CANNON DA CANADA"

"YOU HOSERS ARE U.S. POSERS"

etc..

Someone send me some poutine. I want to see what it tastes like.

how did this get the 'Interesting' tag?

Evil,

Even my wife, who is a Francophone Canadian, finds Celine Dion annoying.
 
2003-02-06 09:21:24 AM  
Of course we're going to invade.

U.S.: Knock knock!
Canada: Yes?
U.S.: We're out of trees!
 
2003-02-06 09:23:02 AM  
The Yanks can have our beer when they pry it out of our cold, dead hands!

That's about the one thing left, they've already bought everything else interesting we used to have :-)

France Surrenders.

Too bad we didn't follow through with those plans. Don't worry Sadam we won't make the same mistake twice.

hahaha nice joke hench,

Like I said before, I don't want canada. I want mexico

An excellent aricle. You gotta love the fine folks at The Straight Dope.
 
2003-02-06 09:26:44 AM  
I remember reading this years ago and thinking, "Yep, I'm sure they would have too, but for the depression. American likes regular wars, so they can shoot their big guns."

This opinion hasn't changed, for some reason!
 
2003-02-06 09:27:05 AM  
RussionRouletteWithACapgun: No, no -- French Canada surrenders.


*holds up The Stanley Cup* I think this is serving fine for the Celine Dion reparations....

 
2003-02-06 09:31:11 AM  
John Candy brought the plans to the silver screen.

question:

do quebecois surrender as readily as frenchmen, or has the benevolent influence of english canada and the united states meliorated their tendency to wave a white flag at the first sign of danger?

or, does the fact that quebecois arrived back when france actually won a war occasionally mean that they avoided the surrender influence that has affected french society since napoleon?

Shows how afraid America was of Canada and Britain :)

Stpickrell: Nah a lot of 'em think they're Frenchie, so they surrender, but.... they not surrender quickly. To think they could of joined in the revolution, but said no.
 
2003-02-06 09:39:40 AM  
Would it be militarily possible to conquer all of Canada except for Quebec?
 
2003-02-06 09:39:50 AM  
Hey, we burned down the whiteh0use before, we'll do it again if we have to...
 
2003-02-06 09:40:52 AM  
Blame Canada! Blame Canada!
With their beady little eyes
Flapping heads full of lies

And remember, Canadians are partial French. And they spawned Celione Dion, which is a crime so unspeakable it can never be forgiven.
 
2003-02-06 09:41:41 AM  
Here's one Canadian begging the Americans to revive that plan and liberate us from England. I've already got a network of collaborators all set.

"Someone send me some poutine. I want to see what it tastes like."


mmmm poutine..
its pretty easy to make.. just deep fry some fries..
throw some cheese kurds on top and pour hot gravy on top..
Oohh yea.. that farks up your arterties nicely.
 
2003-02-06 09:42:19 AM  
I still think we need to find the traitor asshat that was running the rink in Salt Lake City last year and shoot him. He put a Canadian Looney underneath center ice!!! Obviously this is the only reason you northerners have our gold medal.

Chick3_16: Not a good enough threat eh? Hmmmm.

We don't have plans for war with North Korea becasue no one can figure out what color "batshiat crazy" is.
 
2003-02-06 09:43:12 AM  
Those of you who think being partially french is bad have never seen Montreal Strippers.

He was from Calgary (or was it Edmonton?)

CanuckGuy...I can only pray that some day I'll get to have a sweet French Canadian stripper girl whisper something sexy in French into my ear. She could be telling me her grocery list, I wouldn't care.

Do I get a longer lap dance if I pay with REAL dollars? ;-)

if there's real chunks of beef in there it's got all the ingredients of a heart attack.

For the last time, Canadians did not burn down the Whitehouse. Those were British troops. They might have been stationed there, but that makes them no more Canadian than US in Afghanistan are Afghani.

I did find it more funny that US plans were to invade Canada and take it over while Canadian plans didnt amount to more than defense with some border raids.
