[To the tune of God Save the Queen]
God wasn't British
Saint George was Arabic
You wanna fight?
We made the internet
I guess goat_cx's our fault
Didn't qualify for Europe
We have a Queen?

It depresses me those our the best lyrics I've written.

That was stupid & racist.


How was that in any way racist? It's a common stereotype/misconception that is akin to saying all canadians live in igloos. He wasn't making a value judgemt of you based on it, he was just making a goofy joke. To call his statemt racist is taking it way, WAY too seriously.

-m


Thank you Matt. That was my point. It was me being goofy. Except for the me needing a nap around 3:45 in the afternoon. I'm always tired.

Mexicans:siesta :: Canadians:igloos :: Americans:rednecks, amiright?

Besides, do you realize that Mexico and Canada are looking like really viable living options to Americans now? Seriously, our government can't admit that there is a recession because it will "make the american public worry". Since when was "Ignore it and maybe it will go away" ever a sound economic plan? Not to mention that it seems like the presidential election seems to come down to "who sucks ass less", we are fighting two wars that basically suffer from "M*A*S*H syndrome" (lasting longer than the actual battles did), and the men we entrusted to lead us in our faith are twiddling our children.

Happy mother-fucking Independence Day.


Sorry dudes, I think I was in a ratter bad mood yesterday.

I always wondered what the words were for the Canadian National Anthem. The new anthem is pretty catchy.

That was a good looking Beaver. Was it stuffed?

Happy Canada Day!!

Taken directly from dictionary.com:
Fact
"Something that actually exists; reality; truth"

Fact 1:
The crew, and a large number of the fans, are from Canada. This one is obviously a fact.
Fact 2:
The video is entertaining to people outside of Canada. I live in the states and I liked this video, so I guess this one's a fact too.
Fact 3:
You're a fucking moron. At this point I'm pretty sure we can go ahead and conclude that you are in fact a fucking moron.
Fact 4:
Kill yourself. Not so much a fact as a suggestion, but still not a bad idea. Perhaps "You should kill yourself" would've been better.

God Save The Queen sounds more singable to me.
Rule Britannia seems like it would be a bit harder without a soloist..

There's an unwritten, silent, understood "you should" in number 4, just like the sentence, "Go." is a complete sentence, with an unwritten "you" as the subject. Therefore, Fact 4 is, in fact, a fact. The accuracy of said fact is beyond the scope of this discussion.

That ending anthem falls under the category "so stupid it brought tears to my eyes."

In retrospect, I'm laughing at it.

I look forward to the podcast on this one!

This did happen one to many times for my liking in high school. Most of the PE teachers at Oak Bay also taught social studies. Sheff was not bad for socials 10 and Mr B was great for history 12 but Mr Ball was terrible for grade 11 socials.

Fucking Rusty Ball, god dammit.
But the Sheff was awesome, always.

Socials was where I started drawing the 'DAVE' comics, which aren't really known to anybody except Morgan, James and Bill. Also Jer, but that was Chem 11.

i hope you realize that "cha cha cha" originates from Cuban dance music and completely contradicts Canadian culture.

lol, the new American national theme song would have to include the fact that it has the worlds largest porn industry.

we got screwed out of a weekly video just for some holiday that unless ur in canada u dont care about.


Fist of, it's "your", "you" and "don't" the internet is not a all-access-pass to misspell, especially on a forum where you have time to correct yourself.

while true, i don't care much about Canada day, I don't care much about Independence Day/ The Fourth of July, aside from the fireworks and parties. Although i do like living here.

Finally, i though the video was funny, (lol, Phunny) and i did relate it to my own national anthem, and... i just had an idea, LRR should crack on the US Pledge of Allegiance, (in school, we recite the pledge everyday, while we stand with hands over our hearts.) after which you should have a government agent come up to you with a contract.... anyway. yes.. the video was entertaining.

Alright, let's all just leave Corax alone for now. As much as this may shock some of you, there are people in the world with opinions that conflict with yours. Gasp! As much as you might like to tell them how wrong you think they are, even if it's true, you can't get personal with them, or you're no better than they are. Besides, if Corax doesn't like it here, there are other sites on the internet. Double Gasp!

Back to the video, I loved the "Hockey Night in Canada" inspired anthem. I'm also very impressed that you turned beer into a five-syllable word.

Be--e--e--e--eer.

I think perhaps a reference to the MGS4 Auditions is in order. Now rise for our national anthem to Snake...

Oh, say can you see,

What so proudly we hailed,

Corax....stop talking. Stop typing. I've been wanting to say this for a while.

Just stop, and save yourself an ostracization after you hit puberty.

Furthermore:

I'm in frickin' FLORIDA, and I CARE ABOUT CANADA DAY!

I always care about that kind of holiday. National birthdays are always a great time to celebrate, regardless of nationality.

Our country reeks of trees,
Our yaks are reeeeeaaallly large,
And they smell like rotting beef carcasses.
And we have to clean up after them,
And our saddle sores are the best.
We proudly wear women's clothing,
And searing sand blows up our skirts.

And the buzzards, they sore overhead,
And poisonous snakes, will devour us whole,
And our bones will bleach in the sun,
And we will probably go to hell,
And that is our great reward,
For being the hero--oo-ic,
Canadian... Kilted... Yaksmen!

Hey, it's been on our flag since 1925. And it is actually on our flag, albeit on the back.

But let's not fight. We both have a long history of turning them into jaunty top hats.

@tak197:

re: Eddie Izzard and God Save the Queen

If I remember my Eddie Izzard correctly:
God attack the queen/
Send big dogs after her/
That bite her bum/
Let them chase after her/
And tear her knickers off

And then he goes into to the bit about how she could fight the crazy dogs with her handbag and the people of Britain would be very proud of her.
