hahahahaha--That was pretty funny and I'm not even a Canadian. One question, though. In #23, what are Sorels? On a slightly more serious note, I'd much rather live in Windsor, Ontario than Detroit, Michigan.

I am only the 2nd generation of being a US citizen after my Grandfather moved to these parts from Quebec city. So I'm not suprised I can understand and appreciate these "Only in Canada's. That was awesome! Have to admit though I still don't understand the comedy routine with the white bear in those Labbat commercials.

Olympic, the first 10 hold just as true for the US, or at least North Carolina. As for the Labatts commercial, I should've paid better attention to the comercials on CBC last nite... unfortunately, I was too depressed watching the Oilers blow another game to Cowgary to notice
