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.

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

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

How did this get into a Fragrant habour forum? :bored:

When it comes to aviation, too bad our sonic era was short-lived....I still think the Avro Arrow was a beautiful bird.....

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.
