Happy 4th of July and an apology.

Happy 4th of July to all of you southern neighbors!

And, 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 a moron shouldn't reflect poorly on the people of America. After all, it's not like you actually elected him.

I'm sorry about our softwood lumber. Just because we have more trees than you doesn't give us the right to sell you lumber that's cheaper and better than your own. It would be like if, well, say you have 10 times the television audience we did and you flood our market with great shows, cheaper than we could produce. I know you would never do that.

I'm sorry we beat you in Olympic hockey. In our defense I guess our excuse would be that our team was much, much, much, much better than yours. As a way of our apology, please accept all of our Canadian NHL teams, which one by one are going out of business and moving to your fine country.

I'm sorry about our waffling on Iraq. I mean, when you're going up against a crazed dictator, you want to 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.

I'm sorry we burnt down your White-House during the war of 1812. I see you've rebuilt it! It's very nice.

I'm sorry for Alan Thicke, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Lover Boy, the song from Sheriff that ends with the high pitched end note, your beer. I know we had nothing to do with your beer, but we feel your pain.

And finally on behalf of all Canadians, I'm sorry that we're constantly apologizing for things in a passive-aggressive way, which is really a thinly veiled criticism. I sincerely hope that you're not upset over this, because, we've seen what you do to countries with whom you get upset with.

I'm eXcentris, I'm Canadian. And I'm sorry.

(Oh I lifted that from the CBC show This Hour Has 22 min.)

But a truely Happy 4th of July to all of ya Yanks eh!

No reason to apologize for Shania Twain. She sings real purty... and looks real purty, too!

Well, after reading all that, I wish it was in French so I wouldn't have bothered to read it in the first place.

Apology accepted. And I'm sorry I don't even knowing when your national holiday is, or if you even have one and not really caring if you do.

You guys gave us David Cronenberg and all sorts of wonderful shit. IMO, You've got carte blanche.
And, I am too tired to laugh, but I want to. Your OP was beautific. (Can I use you as a reference when I need to flee?)

Apology not accepted. If you were from Toronto, then maybe...

At least you're not one of those damn Newfies.
