Every "reason to invade" they list can easily be applied to them as well.
I think it is a joke site.


First off, let's make Alaska actually connected to the U.S. again!

They're just a little too proud


only one that i'd say applies to all canadians I've met. :) Note: never met any of the LLR crew.

They don't play nicely with each other


yes.. in the US we don't have separatists... last I recall wasn't is the 50 states saying Puerto Rico was good enough for us to own but THEY aren't good enough to be a state?

but it's a very funny page. If it wasn't for that damn nuke in the CN tower we could of done it by now. Yes, we burned down Toronto, but they burned down BUFFALO. WTF?! Buffalo wasn't a capitol or anything, go burn down Albany! Bastards!!!! Nobody in Buffalo likes that place eigther! ;)

Oil. And that is why anyone would never get away with invading Alaska.

Aww, how sweet, Emma.

But honestly, we have oil, timber, natural gas, gold, oil, timber, gold, gold, gold, fish, gold, crab, oil, timber, crab, fish and some oil. Lots of natural resources.

We also have, I think, one of the highest hick:square mile ratios in the nation. You know what the Big Thing is here, where I live right now?

Iraq? No, grasshopper.
Celebration over the massive size of this year's PFD payout? Oh, you would be mistaken again.
Concern over high housing prices? Oh, how I wish.

It's flouride in the Goddamn water supply. There are letters in the paper - nothing but, some days! - CONSTANTLY arguing about flouridation in the local water supply. There have been - and I am not kidding - published accusations of the government "creeping" into controlling our lives via the flouride in the water, and even people frothing at the mouth that it is tantamount to communism.

Yes, this is what Juneau spends its energy on. Our housing prices are about 100k over the continental US average, wages are falling, "affordable housing" is equitable only to brand-new slums, and the governor is making small subtle moves to pull the capital out of Juneau. And they argue about Goddamn flouride.

(Yes, my better half and I are working on moving.)

Sorry about the rant!

Canada is pretty good country, except I don't want to be taxed out the ass so everyone can have healthcare. I pay enough just for me as it is.

Hmmmm...we COULD use the syrup. I suppose the oil would be nice, too.

Seriously, though, Canada or at least Canadians, from what I've seen of them, kick ass. They're rational, friendly people who tend to do far less over-reacting to stupid things as people in my country do.

Also they have double big-macs.

My only complaint is I've seen a rash of "Canadian pride" things that seemed a little skewed, such as Claiming Thomas Edison was Canadian, despite the fact that he was born in Ohio ten years after his parents fled Canada because they were part of a failed attempt at a Canadian revolution. Thomas himself was born in, and spent the vast majority of his life in America.


As for the page itself, did someone actually ask if it was serious? "We have to protect Santa Clause?" Suggesting using little League teams to invade?

Emma, please turn your brain back on. You accidentally disabled it for the preceding post.

Thank you.

I have never heard anyone say that. That seems very odd to me.

And Pious, do shut up.

It seemed odd to me, too! But I've heard it from like three different places, and every time I'm like "seriously, was every history book I ever read really THAT far off?"

Personally, I welcome our Canuck overlords with open arms. Jay from Ice Road Truckers should be the Secretary of Education, just so all the children can have his kickass dialect.

That's kind of lame, cause seriously, they've got Shatner, they don't need anyone else. It would only decrease the average awesomeness of canadian famous people.
