for most americans, Canada is that place UP THERE that we never visit, barely think aboot and foolishly ignore
but thanks to blogging, i have made friends, kissed girls, drank beers, eaten poutine, and even had the pleasure of devouring Beaver Tails all while saying
why didnt anyone tell me about all of this before.
the idea that canada is nothing more than igloos and hockey rinks and beautiful women and eskimos is only half true
there are also Tim Hortons on every block, government run liquor stores, coins used as actual money, and french used as an actual language
the people say sorry a lot, they are super sweet, and the queen walks down the street during hockey season and gives high fives to the townfolk whenever a goal is scored.
i have had the great good pleasure of visiting americas hat several times and i am overdue for another excellent adventure and i must tell you, america:
canada is also america minus the dingleberries
in vancouver i saw a marijuana store run by hells angels
in toronto i ice skated outside in the snow and everyone, even the children were drunk off love (and molsons)
in ottowa i ate the most delicious indian food and saw the most beautiful gargoyles
in kingston i ate poutine at a kfc and i let out a moan so loud that they gave me a free cookie but told me i had to leave, soorry.
in barrie i soaked in a hot tub with lesbians as thick snowflakes lazily fell upon our heads
in quebec city i felt like i was in a runaway neighborhood of paris that was miraculously transported across the globe
and in montreal i proposed to a girl who said, first lets eat some smoked meats and we danced next to a brick wall while grafitti artists expertly painted our blurry forms
i have been harassed at the border, i have seen fireworks on a river, i have seen baseball played in a dome
i even slept for a night in a honeymoon suite overlooking niagra falls and i wondered,
why does america have buffalo when we could have had all of this?
don cherry, geddy lee, matthew good, neil young, mike meyers, pamela anderson, wayne gretzky
and now justin trudeau’s wife
should all be honorary americans
and by that i mean they should be given a gun and be exempt from paying taxes.
happy canada day, my favorite country in america that doesnt speak even a little bit spanish
unless theyre on vacation in cuba.
