Canadians!


Americans sort of ignore Canadians because they do not cause many problems. They are so logical, polite and generally sane. Nice contrast to rowdy and pushy Americans. You never hear Canadians bragging their country is the greatest nation on Earth. That would be immodest and pushy. So un-Canadian.

Thought about the differences when they were eulogizing Peter Jennings. He was so urbane, polite but competent and incisive. He became an American post Sept. 11, which was a nice act of solidarity. But he seemed Canadian still, somehow.

Any country which can produce Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Pam Anderson, Shania Twain, Alanis Morrissette, Natasha Henstridge and Shannon Tweed gets my respect! I found this list of famous Canadians funny, the numbers are their spots in the polls for these years:
