tinyE: That is something I actually won't joke about. Canada played a huge part in storming the beaches at Normandy. That's a place in history no one can take from them.

Emob78: Part of me thinks all that civilized behavior and constant apologizing is just one big smoke screen. In fact, Canada probably has dozens of crack infantry divisions hiding in the woods, ready to invade the USA on a moment's notice... ready to march down here and make us all watch hockey and put the Queen of England back on our currency.

johnnygoging: Actually in truth most Canadians don't really care for the monarchy. We don't have that sort of cultural commonality with England. There is still affinity for England itself and a lot of British culture but not really any particular interest in the monarchy. As for the hockey bit.. well...

I dunno. In my experience (and it is just in my own experience around Canada), the Canadian attitude is more one of ambivalence. Whenever someone comes up with the idea of divesting ourselves from the monarchy it always seems to draw a surprising amount of vehement opposition. But on the other hand, you don't see a lot of people waving around Union Jacks and singing Rue Britannia around pictures of Queen Elizabeth II.

We sure don't have a lot of cultural commonality with England these days, short of the older generation who were around when ties to England were superficially a lot stronger. I will say one thing, though: I do miss Marks and Spencer. Their Shrimp Cocktail Chips and Red Currant Puff Biscuits were like crack cocaine for me growing up.

They're just waiting for us to get our act together and become respectable first, right? Well, we're on to them, and it's not going to happen!!
Wow. There are a lot of these threads, I swear when I made mine I hadn't seen any others.

Also, I shouldn't say anything but… we will have our revenge for the War of 1812. >:)

We burned down the White House. Then a 175 years or so later we unleashed Anne Murray and Celine Dion on them. I think we humiliated them enough. :)

Something that is posted in a satirical magazine is completely fabricated? What a surprise. That news is worthy of being posted in The Onion. ;-)
