No, i'm not diving into the mirky waters of generalisations:

Has anyone seen Deuce Bigalow 2 European Gigolo, if you haven't then you won't have a clue what i'm on about. If you have seen it, what do you think it's done for the image of Canadian backpackers??

I haven't seen it, but now for sure I have to. I thought the first one was very funny, and anything that makes fun of Canadians is usually alright in my book. The more they mock us, the less seriously they take us, the greater the element of the surprise when we launch the "super-secret-take-over-the-Western-Hemisphere" attack.

These American women know too have a cynide tainted chocolate.....wait there's no cynide in these chocolates, it's it's the new almonde flavoured coating.....

Canadian Bacon (1994)
John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Rhea Perlman
Directed by Michael Moore


In this wacky satire on the cold war mentality, the president of the United States and an arms manufacturer find it in their best economic interests to plant rumors of a potential nuclear attack--by Canada. Then, following a border incident at a hockey tournament, a patriotic sheriff and his deputies plan a counteroffensive...with hilarious results. Directed by activist-writer-television mogul Michael Moore, CANADIAN BACON combines the talents of John Candy and Dan Aykroyd with such actors and comedians as Steven Wright, Rip Torn, and James Belushi. The film is reminiscent of the terrific Peter Sellers vehicle THE MOUSE THAT ROARED, which dealt with the Duchy of Grand Fenwick declaring war on the United States in order to lose and receive millions in reparations.

Finally! After the years of R&D we can launch our assault! GregW meet me in Regina with the sled dogs... I have some extra snow-shoes so we can get to the igloo.

Q_Zhang, you bring the supply of beaver mortor's and moose missiles. They won't know what hit em' when we raise the Maple Leaf across the United States!

-- and nope I haven't seen the new duece movie, sounds funny though.

COOL!! CC, Beerman and I need all the reinforcements we can get since Brenda is rallying all the Canuckistanis together!

CC - do not touch those chocolates the Q sent you!!! You must resist until you have taken your anti-cyanide M&Ms and they have had time to work.

Maple Leaf Across America - Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Canada will just be another star on our beloved banner of red, white and blue very soon!!!!

Beerman, are your troops ready for their invasion of the Molson and LaBatts beer mines???

(We haven't seen the Deuce movie either. But, we have seen Canadian Bacon and The Mouse that Roared - both are very good!!)

Aye aye, Cap'n, topsails and mainsails.....

Beerman calls in the Re-PUB-lican Guard and their footsoldiers...the Buds.....take over. The Millers join in the march to the Northern Frontier (soon to be the Southern border of the 52nd - 59th states of these here United States of Ours).

BTW, all Canucki hockey players will be required to report to detention rinks in Minnesota, don'cha know, after the 5 minute war is done. That is all.
