Imagine Rhode Island is a Twinkie. Now imagine that Twinkie is 35 feet long and over 600 pounds.

Fortunately, the US has a Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve in case we have to impose an embargo.  The Department of Defense can disperse the reserve to the IHOPs and Waffle Houses with a simple order from the President.

Don't forget all the potential hostages that we have here, as well.  Comedians, newscasters, singers, and thousands upon thousands of minor league hockey players.

Juc: Oh lord, you joke but canada actually does have a strategic maple syrup reserve :/


I thought that was actually a Quebec provincial thing. You know, since maple syrup is their primary resource alongside municipal corruption.

Snarfangel: An Arctic area three times the size of Texas...

So, Alaska?


If Texas doesn't stop biatching about being the second-largest state then Alaska will split in two and make Texas the third-largest state.

Meh, if we were making a move we'd have the Dakotas and probably Minnesota before you guys noticed. (not that anyone wants most of that.)
We're quiet, amiable and unassuming, it'd be the most polite invasion ever.

I don't get it.  They already owned all three attack vectors into Greenland and they can have access to Russia over Sara Palin's cold dead body.

No...seriously.  You take care of that for us, and the state's yours.   Really.

Krieghund: jshine: trapped-in-CH: Years ago Russia used one of their submarines to drop a flag on the ocean bed at the North Pole. Think Santa was Canadian? Nope. Russian now

Meh, it's just publicity -- like the American flags on the moon.  It doesn't really mean anything, but it makes for some good chest-thumping.

Say that again when all you get for Christmas are Babushka scarves and matryoshka dolls.



Soon.  Yes, soon, you will not know the difference.

Try it.  You think that northern area is called the Canadian Shield because of some weird geological thing?  Where do you think we store OUR nukes? ;)


All your nukes are belong to us.
