Ok, what is with the invasion of the Canadians? With their Hockey and Beer and comedy now Coffee and Doughnuts too??? Tim Horton's is opening numerous spots in USA now. Worse part, he's a former hockey player, Tim Horton that is. What next? Lacrosse? What a minute

I accidentally tried a coffee from Tim Hortons once... same thing happened as the first time I tried a Starbucks. I hate spewing in my mouth.

Don't most Americans think Tim Horton is the Canadian "President"?

What comes around, goes around ....

Reminds me of a couple visiting us in UK from Vancouver a few years ago:

Mrs Jones "I just hate these Hong Kong Chinese - they come over here, they buy into the best real estate, they get their kids into the best schools, they get their kids into the best universities - I just hate them!

Mr Jones "Aren't you forgetting something, darling?"

Mrs Jones "What's that?"

Mr Jones "You are Hong Kong Chinese!"

Mrs Jones "Well, yes - but I was here first!"

No, Near Miss

We think he's only King.

Every American knows how you laughed off George Washington as a gifted crank manipulated by a gang of tax-evading lawyers and wouldn't have tea with us in Boston.

On the other hand, we don't know about our five invasions of Canada that chalked up a string of five consecutive military defeats.

We also give all the credit for torching the White House to the Brits, not you.

(sigh)

I don't think the Canadians actually invented the dancing University student, but they pretty much perfected the design!

The Band by name, The Band by nature, and Canadian content

80% of The Band, a group often described as one of the top five American bands of all time.

Oy
