Despite the warning on the sign-up page I 'joined anyway' perhaps by offering this Standard Canadian Apology
you will welcome me to this community..
On behalf of Canadians everywhere I'd like to offer an apology to the United States of America. We haven't been getting along very well recently and for that, I am truly sorry.
I'm sorry we called George Bush a moron. He is a moron but, it wasn't nice of us to point it out. If it's any consolation, the fact that he's moron shouldn't reflect poorly on the people of America. After all it's not like the majority of you actually elected him.
I'm sorry about our softwood lumber. Just because we have more trees than you, doesn't give us the righ to sell you lumber that's cheaper and better than yours.
I'm sorry we beat you for the Olympic hockey Gold medal in Salt Lake 2002. In our own defence I guess the excuse would be our team was much, much, better than yours.
I'm sorry we burnt down your white house during the war of 1812. I notice you've repainted it! Very Nice.
I'm sorry about your beer. I know we had nothing to do with your water oops, I mean beer but, we feel your pain.
I'm sorry about our waffling on Iraq. I mean, when you're going up against a crazed dictator, you wanna have your friends by your side.
I realize it took more than two years before you guys pitched in against Hitler, but that was different. Everyone knew he had weapons.
And finally on behalf of all Canadians, I'm sorry that we constantly apologize for things in a passive-aggressive way which is really just a thinly veiled criticism.
I sincerely hope that you don't get disturbed over this. We've seen what you do to countries when you get upset.
