O Canada

* Why I'm Glad I Live In Canada *

We pronounce "process" correctly.

When listening to the Barenaked Ladies' song, "If I Had A Million Dollars", we know what Kraft Dinner is.

We know what serviettes are.

We have Mounties.

We invented Superman.

We have back bacon.

We spell "neighbour" and "colour" correctly.

We're nice.

We have chesterfields, runners, and elastics.

Our money is cooler-looking.

We don't mix up our "e"s and "r"s (like in the word "centre").

We have FilKONtario.

We have ketchup chips.

We're modest. ;-)

Hey, you other Canadians...any other suggestions? :-) Please post them in Blatherchat, thanks.

Today's Blatherpic:

- Me modelling a Waiting For Frodo" t-shirt, baby doll t-shirt version (there is also a regular t-shirt).

- A typical Canadian mountie.

- Our flag, eh?

Feel free to suggest a daily poll question.

Today's Poll:

Do you like back bacon more than strip bacon?
