Did you hear the newest conspiracy?

Russia is making the claim of being the inventors of Maple Syrup. I wonder if this is to help strengthen their flame to the Arctic


LOL JK obviously. Screw all those copycats with all their lame inventions.

Hockey season is starting soon, come October we won't care about anything until the playoffs are over. ATS prepare yourself for the sudden disappearance of many Canadian members.



the squirrels invented maple syrup.

they make the maple trees bleed, the water evaporates leaving maple sugar on the tree.
then they eat it in winter.
humans are just copy cats.

Ah well, guess I missed the memo while I was occupying my time with relaxing on the back deck, having a beer, munching on some back bacon, listening to The Tragically Hip, and laughing at my neighbour attempting to duct tape his bbq back together while his stupid chihuahua dog humps his leg.




Sounds like a plan!

The Canadians I know are definitely some of the best human beings on the planet, but I don't think they'd be described as cool (except for the French Canadiens I know).
Maybe aspiring to coolness is lame.

Depends on the Canadian...

Neil Young is cool, and he was born in Canada.

I'm half French Canadian. Does that make me cool?

Hope my Irish half doesn't take away from my coolness.

Neil Young is awesome. I had the chance to see him play live in Ottawa in 1996 or 1997, so far back can't remember the exact year. He was pretty old even back then and he threw one hell of a show.

If the Irish half is northern, then you've got a step ahead toward cool.
If it's southern, well, could be another statistical improbability of coolness, but take my opinion with a grain of salt, after all, I'm New York born with Southern Irish/ Southern Spanish/ Unclassified European blood living in the South.

My Irish ancestors came here from County Cork. During late 1800's. I think they landed in Halifax, and ended up in Montreal.

French side came here in 1640.

I consider myself Canadian, but also acknowledge my ancestors.

Canada is the melting pot of all the cultures of the world.

Personally speaking, I think that Canadians can't decide whether they want to be American or British, and they've merged into an awkward mix of the two. It seems to me that Canada doesn't appear to have forged an overriding national identity, unlike some of our other colonial outposts, like Australia.


Puberty is long and hard in the cold. We'll grow out of it
.


I actually find it ironic that Canada has such a low-key approach to outwardly expressing their nationality, considering that their biggest historical influences have been the British, the Americans and the French - probably the three biggest ''blow their own trumpet'' nationalities in the world !


Nothing unusual about this at all. As with most families it is typical for the child to rebel againts its parents (UK & France). But, as we age, we will probably become more similar to our older sibiling (USA) much to the worlds regret.

I am pleased to see this thread didn't devolve into a bickering match.
I just have to point out a thing or three. Yes, we are very much British AND very much American. Is that not an identity of it's own? Secondly, Nickleback DOES suck. What's the matter with you people. Now, this is cool.

I always wondered if Canada's identity crisis is a product of our population density.

We are not so much a country of 34 mill as we are pockets of a few million here, multiple million there, etc. Leads to the 'multiple personalities' found coast to coast and diminishes the 'Canadianism' as a whole due to the disparities across.

Basically, we have no unified 'Canadian Identity' becasue we are spread so thin that we have multiple 'Canadian Idenitities' all of a small enough population to be largely ignored.

Anyhoo...back to the jokes.

Yes. I was very pleased how jolly this went. I got a few good laughs out of it. Don't see that much around here lately. And all the fun was at Canada's expense. I guess we were due for our fair share.
