52) Canadians can't actually grant wishes, but rub their bellies anyway, it's fun.

53) If you hold a Canadian up to your ear, you can hear the ocean, if you're near the ocean.

54) The Prime Minister's name is not actually Tim Bits.

55) The nation didn't get its name from someone saying "C, eh? N, eh? D, eh?"

Whatchoo Talkinbout: Missing is nobody gives a moose-knuckle aboot Canada, eh.


Yeah, all you Americans should just stay the fark out.  It's awful.  Really - you don't want to move here, it's always cold as hell and we have none of the modern conveniences.  And our football is funny.

56)  They all count in metric.
57)  Their sweat tastes like Molson's.
58)  Alberta was a joke that got out of hand.
59)  Somewhere deep in the Yukon forest is the ancient Source Moose who will grant magical poutine to the hunter who can track him down.
60)  Tim Horton was actually from New Jersey.

A traditional dessert in Quebec, is fresh baked bread with heavy cream and maple sugar chunks.  It is somehow magically delicious.

Newfoundland is deceptively a swamp.  Yes, those green rolling hills and wooded cliffs are swamp too.  Go there, you will be knee deep in muck and slugs.  Somehow a glacier, lopped the top off a mountain range and just melted there.

Newfoundland also harbors the thought that it could be independent any day of the week it chose.  And not like Quebec, but better.

1982 they became their own country?  That seems odd.  I thought they still are a protectorate or something of Great Britain, and have to pay taxes to them.  I must really be behind the times.

I wonder how repubs reacted when they found out that the actor who played Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland, his grandfather is considered Canadas greatest politician who also happened to be socialist.. and that Kiefer is close to the NDP Canadas socialist mainstream party.. Kiefer was good friends with Jack Layton

Just for a fyi

Metropolis was inspired from Toronto and Daily Planet modeled after a Toronto newspaper. Superman = half Canadian.

Also the band HEART, cause one guy was a draft dodger, the band followed him to Vancouver and they became famous touring Canada.

I'm a Canadian, but one who favours proper research. Basketball was invented by a Canadian, James Naismith, but in Th USA, not in Canada as the graphic indicates. The article that is footnoted even states that Naismith developed the sport while teaching in Massachusetts.

So, if their comics contain criminal acts, only criminals will have comics?

Is it even possible to have a comic book without some sort of criminal act to attract the wrath of the hero?

The espionage warnings from the Defense Department caused an international sensation a few years ago over reports of mysterious coins with radio frequency transmitters, until they were debunked. The culprit turned out to be commemorative "poppy" quarters with a bright red flower manufactured in Canada.

As a Canadian, I have owned and currently own many comics containing criminal acts. It's hard to read the pages for all the blood  and hair but there they are.

Well, contrary to popular belief, not saying sorry after running into an inanimate object is not actually a crime. Impolite, sure, but not a crime. It is, however, the trademark act of Captain Canuck's greatest foe, Unmannerly Man. 67 issues and counting.

Like other people have been saying: basketball was invented by a canadian, not in Canada.

But Canada did play a big role in inventing American Football. McGill and Harvard would challenge each other  to football games back in the 1870s when every school had their own rules. Harvard adopted the oblong ball and the touchdown from McGill, which they then introduced to other American schools.

Canada didn't become a country in 1982, that's when we finally re-wrote our Constitution so that we could amend it without an act of the British Parliament. A better date would be 1931 when Britain enacted the Act of Westminster that gave all its colonial dominions sovereign power over their own affairs. We didn't succeed from the British Empire, we were kicked out like a lazy teen told to get the hell out of the basement and get a job.

No, it doesnt really make sense. A quick search shows that only 4 percent of Canadians are of Chinese decent, and even if half of them are named Li it shouldnt be the most common. Not to mention many of them are spelled Lee.

If you can't alter your form of government without express written permission from an island halfway around the world, you're not in a sovereign nation. You're in a colony.

He is Canadian -- I think it means they can charge you for your sick loli/furry porn collection here you creepy weird bastard. Like many Canadian laws regarding whoring, drugs, or deceny it doesn't get enforced unless its truly objectionable.
That and spawn was likely published by an American company.

Inconvienant I can buy but as alcohol is essentially toxic and places a huge burden on the universal health care system I think the prices are justifiable.
