"Five axiomatic propositions of Canadian Nationalism vis-a-vis the Americans:

1. Boy, we hate Americans.

2. We really do.

3. Really.

4. I'm not kidding. We really hate them.

5. So how come they never pay us any attention?"

--Will Ferguson, Why I Hate Canadians, Vancouver: Douglas & McIntyre, 1997, p.105.

Canadian content continued. Well, I'll be damned. The day after I posted my screed against Canadian content rules, and sneered at the idea that Canada's regulatory agency would define Bryan Adams as not being Canadian content, the Globe and Mail (print edition only) had a front-page photo of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, taken by Bryan Adams!!! The caption noted that Adams "has made London his home for several years." So I guess I stand corrected. Although I have no idea why he's taking the Queen's picture.

[UPDATE: Fellow blogger Charles Tupper, Jr. explains why Mr. Adams is snapping polaroids of Her Majesty. So I stand corrected yet again, but I sincerely hope he has never played his song "I Wanna be Your Underwear" for her.]
Tithing rules explained again. In response to some of you wise guys who've been sending me your tithing forms, please note that tithing percentages of less than 0% are not allowed. I will not pay anyone who tithes a negative percentage. Don't pass up this opportunity to allow me to travel the world funding charitable works and supporting indigent workers such as those on the assembly line at Ferrari!
