Here in Baltimore we're having a big party with old tall ships, modern Navy ships, the Blue Angels, etc... to celebrate.

Read a Canadian high school history book. They won, it says so right there.

Look at those dirty icebacks celebrating their "victory". I'm sure they'll be pissing maple syrup once we send a few divisions up there to shut those poutine-eating sons of biatches up.

In the bicentennial of the Mexican-American War, will we reenact the battles using illegal immigrants?

My ex is Canadian(yeah, yeah...I know) and she loved to antagonize me with this song by the Arrogant Worms. I gotta admit, the song is actually funny. Historically accurate? Not so much.

That's because they surrendered to the British."

If you guys want to come down for a reenactment of the Battle of New Orleans and get stuck in the mud in Chalmette and get eaten by alligators while we pick the rest off one by one, I'm game. We'll be firing blanks, of course, but I can't make any promises about the alligators.

"Thanks to the war," says John Sek, the Canadian re-enactor who wears a blue coat, "we're not waving an American flag today."

Beware, John Sek. We're already taking your NHL teams and sooner or later we're coming for your flag.

I know it's a thing.

I did a book report on Oliver Hazard Perry when I was in 5th grade. But then again, I'm a lot smarter than most of my dumbass fellow Americans.

Years later, I feel that I enjoy Great Lake's Brewery's "Commodore Perry I.P.A." on a more profound level than other beer drinkers.

Shortly after we burn down Toronto, but before we reenact snatching victory from the jaws of defeat at Baltimore followed by massacring the British at New Orleans.

More like our wannabe Teabagger government trying too hard to instill some US style patriotism. I've heard very little about this, other than the $28 million they are spending on it. Fiscal restraint my ass.

$28 million in Canadian money is pretty cheap, no?

Canadians always cross the border to buy products you can't get at home for a reasonable price.

Of course, of course. I forgot how the Canadian way of waging war was. I mean, they even won Normandy at Juno Beach by walking ashore holding a white flag, and politely offering what Canadians claim to be "Beer" and jovial conversation.

/wait a second....

Hey, now, you guys played a pivotal role for the British in a war that could best be most charitably described as a draw for them, and the US really didn't care how it got framed because they got the British to agree to stop the Royal Navy's harassment of commercial trading vessels sailing under US flags and seizing their cargo and pressing their crews into service.

Canadians are like your cousin who only comes by 2 or 3 times a year. You like him, and you're glad to see him, but you're always thinking, "Why is he like that?". Now I get it. It's a sense of superiority. They kicked our butts and those dirty ice backs (thanks WTF Indeed) have been holding it over our heads for 200 years. Fine, be that way. I'm raising a beer to you right now, Canada, (Anchor, made in America) but I wearing my grumpy face. I hope you're happy.
