Canada gave us hockey. And Canadian bacon.


We claim no responsibility for canadian bacon. We like regular bacon here, the only place in our whole country where one can get something called canadian bacon is McDonalds IIRC. :wink:

Hockey we will take credit for. :D We also gave you Basketball.

I hate basketball, it's like watching ping-pong, but not as exciting.

I agree, stupid sport, but a canadian invented it so I (apparently) have to push it. :wink: It's obviously too easy, or the scores wouldn't get so bloody high... it's not even exciting when someone scores, and if you go to the bathroom you're garaunteed to miss at least 5 points. They should switch it to full contact, that would remove most of the suck.

I think you should be allowed to carry the bat with you around the bases in baseball.

NASCAR sucks too, there should be track drivers going in the opposite direction.

I once met Canada's ambassador to Cuba and he told a great story about how Fidel Castro was genuinely scarred of Jean. Like Fidel would literally sit up straight when Jean came for a visit and makes no demands of any kind in Jean's presence.

After Jean would come home, Fidel would start making demands to the ambassador, but never directly to the great Mr. Chrétien. Fidel would not fuck with Chrétien. Who would?

Another funny story about Chrétien is that Putin loves him too, and Putin actually asked Chrétien to come help in a legal dispute over state owned oil reserves and Mr. Chrétien did indeed provide legal council to Mr. Putin.

Yeah, Putin would like someone like Chretien. Chretien was a staunch federalist.

I seem to recall something about it being developed on an indian reservation,
one of those barren wasteland places out in Manitoba where your government
interred little indian children and made them dress like white folk and beat
the shit out of them if they spoke their native tongue ....

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

Prairies.

I just wanted to contribute that. After decades of lame Canadian programming that just cannot seem to avoid the subject, I felt a Canadian thread shouldn't go this long without mention of the prairies. :P
