*NOT* the Canadian Reynolds we want to hear from...

But every now and then, the house "goes on" fire.

Not "catches on fire". Very Canadian.

He left out the part where the big house next door is a big METH house where everyone has some kind of firearm.  At least it seems that that is the family that's occupying the big house right now.

Yeah, the gist of what it's like living next to America is "We have our own problems, let's state that up front but..." and then a gentle nod to the side.

It's like one kid skipped school to drink out back, and one kid skipped school to shoot heroin on top of the town clock screaming as loud as they can.

Canadia should nuke the US.  They wouldn't see it coming, and then the problem would be eliminated.

Get yourself to Windsor, Ontario, then head north.

You're correct about the US being on fire, but we're in the apartment above it rather than across the street.

Fine. Whiney biatch Protectorate wants to complain? We can throw away all the treaties and they can go their merry way. I'm sure they'll be able to negotiate awesome trade deals and have access to world markets and be treated humanely by whatever world power they become another WBP for.

We don't even have TVs anymore. We got rid of them years ago. Nowadays when we want to veg out on the couch with some snacks and mindless entertainment, we simply open the windows facing south and watch the cacophony.

Better than cable.

Windsor seems to be a bit of a joke to my relatives in Toronto.  It's almost like they'd be fine with giving Windsor over to the Americans, like it's not even a legit part of Ontario.

Now, look the other way, nothing to see here. Very boring, no drama at all. Also, too cold, polar bears roaming the streets. Just move along.

Yeah, but wouldn't that smudge our spotless record on "treaties"?  Which have moved from meaning "binding agreements between two parties" to "party treats which get thrown away when they get too sticky and we get sick of them".  You can't throw away something that you threw away years ago.

6 Tips to Stop Overthinking



I think that's what you mean, right?   Because you didn't think about what you were posting.

And no, I don't actually think that it's Canada's fault, but that's literally the *ONLY* conclusion you can draw from that image.   That is, unless you're completely unaware of the farkin' film, which seems unlikely.

Not sure if you noticed but your leader pulled out of a number of those treaties already.

So, yes, Canada (and much of the world) is renegotiating treaties without the States.

Especially after you, as a country, demonstrated that any treaty is only as strong as the next president. Stability was your strength. Was.

AmbassadorBooze: Canadia should nuke the US.  They wouldn't see it coming, and then the problem would be eliminated.


The problem of what to do with their one nuke?
It probably doesn't have enough yield to take out all of the politicians, the peta members, the proud boys, the proselytizing vegans, the plague rats, the antivaxxers, the wasteoids, the sportos, the dweebies, and those who stand in the way of the forced repatriation of the Irish scourge all at once.

Canada is kind of cute. We would vacation there in Port Colborne every summer for two weeks. Lovely really. I learned to love Canadian peameal bacon, McIntosh toffee, 222's(aspirin with codeine, no script needed), and some fine cheddar cheese. Oh, and Molson's ale. It was funny seeing the Queens pic on every wall. The border was quite easy to get across in the 60's and 70's...not like today...
Poor photo quality cause I don't know how to screen grab  from a dvd...

The rest of Ontario says the same thing about Toronto. And the wheel keeps on turning.
