It appears that my snarky comments have brought out some maple-sweetened pride from the Canadians (or as I call them: "the other white meat").
(This is the part where I try to make amends.)
I found myself reading these comments about Canada and realizing I never really knew her at all (which was kind of my point). So, despite the number of times I would read about her achievements and say "Oh?...I didn't know that", I also found myself thinking "nicely done, Canada...the world DOES need rollerskates". Good for you!
So, let me say that I now have a newfound respect for our silent, creepy (but friendly) neighbor to the north. Her people are proud of her hockey, her cheese and the 19-year-old legalized drinking age.
As a token of our esteem, we (America) will now give you Superman. He officially isn't even from this planet and seems to be a bit boring anyway, but he likes the colder climates already and imagine what he could do for your curling team! We'll keep Batman, IronMan, The Hulk, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, the Six Million Dollar Man, etc. and hope for the best.

P.S. Please welcome Clyde back tomorrow. He has been away and has had NOTHING to do with any of these anti-Canadian rants.
P.P.S. Big Clyde is ready to get back to cycling.
