This is an urban myth (or perhaps a nautical one) dating back to at least the 60's. Still funnier than the everlasting story about the Chinese restaurant that gets taken to court for dishing up cat food in the chow mein.That re-surafaces every 10 years or so.

I think the link even said that there was a version in the 30s as well. Can't remember without going back.

Oh well Canadians are fun!

Did you know that thanks to our ever so 'competent' public schools here in the USA, that large numbers of Americans don't even realize that Canada is a separate nation. They think it is just another state.

What can you do? dontknow

Have y'all ever seen that old movie "Canadian Bacon."

It stars John Candy as a small town American sheriff who invades Canada. It is really funny. Also stars Alan Alda and Rhea Perlman.

[the Mountie explains that Honey has been taken to the capital]
Boomer: The capital Toronto.
RCMP Officer at Headquarters: No, the capital of Canada is Ottawa.
Boomer: Yeah, right. Do we look that stupid? Ottawa!
Roy Boy: Nice try, Dudley.

Here's a clip of a guy named Rick Mercer, he has a TV show that is mostly politically based but does a show "Talking to Americans" where he asks Americans a variety of questions that they have no clue about...Pretty funny!

It gets funny at 1:30 really good stuff at 7:00

I think I must be the only American left alive that knows that if the Americans had won the Battle of Quebec against the British in 1775 that Canada would now be part of the USA. Had we won that would be about 35 million more people who can't answer geographical, geopolitical or historical questions to our already burgeoning number. haha

That's the most hilarious battle of all time. Americans get here, get beaten mostly by a thing called winter.

Just to be fair, canadians aren't all that smarter. Go ask most kids and plenty of them will actually think Canada IS part of the US.

And finally: Canadian Bacon is the only Michael Moore movie I absolutely love! I loved Dan Aykroyd's part.
