downtownkid: A Canadian fighting in WW2? Yeah, sure. Damned Canucks should thank us, without the USA they'd all be speaking German.

Hey if Hitler hadn't bombed Pearl Harbor the US would have never gotten involved.

Serious suggestion: I understand Fark is based in the US, but all nations produce heroes. Perhaps the standard Hero tag is to be used for submissions, which modmins can then alter its background to the appropriate flag background. A lot of countries out there, but it'd be nice for our Canuck/Brit/Aussie/South Sammich Island/etc Farkers to see a little 'thank you' and show of appreciation for the exemplar of humanity their nation has produced. France's background can stay white.

/thank you Canada

Yes, and they also had the beach with the lightest resistance by a long shot. It's kind of like when you let the special education kid get on base even though you could have easily thrown him out.

Help me determine your credibility by telling me how many amphibious assaults you've participated in.

I personally shot Celine Dion into the Vegas reservoir. She's all yours now, Yanks.

You know, regardless of BA's rewrite of history I remember as a kid how wonderful and appreciative the US was afterwards. We were driving to Disney at the time. Huge banners saying "Thank You Canada". People let us hook our RV up to their electrical free, bought us dinners. It was like being a rock star. The people that mattered knew.

ps: When the mods correct the headline, my comment will no longer make sense.
