"Fuck you, Starbucks, you American pussies." That is what we imagine Canadian coffee and donut chain Tim Hortons to be anthropomorphically saying today, adding in an "Eh?" at the end in stereotypical sneering Canadian style. Are we going to sit around as some Canadian fucks have cups that hold a larger amount of coffee than ours do? Eh?
Despite having a diet that consists solely of french fries with gravy, weird bacon-ham, and moose brains, Canadians are still significantly less obese ("less obese" is where we're at these days, "skinnier" went out the window long ago) than their neighbors to the south. Namely, us. Yes, a study released today shows that 34% of Americans are obese versus 24% of Canadians. What gives?
If Canadians are known for one thing, it's their bacon. If they're known for two things, it's their willingness to brave unfathomable temperatures for the purposes of a viral video. This is that second thing.
Sarah Palin is a renowned foreign policy mastermind when it comes to countries geographically proximate to her native Alaska, which is why the Canadians are so fiercely protective of her, as CBC columnist Heather Mallick found out after writing a September 5 column dissing Bristol Palin as a "pramface." Maybe Mallick thought it would not matter because no one in US America knows what that means. But more than 300 angry letters poured in to the station, forcing the ombudsman to issue a lengthy retractification of the column. Our favorite paragraph of the six-page Review of Complaints after the jump.
