Let's get on a serious topic.
How the heck can you guys call that "BACON"? I mean come on, it's round, it doesn't sizzle, it tastes nothing like bacon.

Go ahead, but imaginary health care can be less than effective, and
capitulation has already obviated any anxiety!

I still remember freedom and responsibility, but they are fast becoming nothing more than "tales of yore" for old men to tell their incredulous grandchildren!

According to my research, the only people that call it "Canadian Bacon" are U.S. Americans .

In Canada there is only "bacon", and, surprisingly, it's almost all meat!

The food-like substance we call "bacon" down here is known in Canada as "fat".

Last time I was up north I saw ketchup potato chips. If that don't make you mistrust them then nothing will.

RE: "Poutine"

Are foreigners required to eat this...."food", or is there a "my Mother won't let me" exemption?

Mom raised me never to eat anything that begins with the word "poo"- no matter how fancy it's spelled.

OK, you gotta be kidding, you don't have ketchup potato chips south of the border? That's it, my wife will never agree to trip south now.

Hey, its french. I was dubious at first too. But, you put gravy on your mashed potatoes don't you? The cheese curds are more difficult to explain. It's one of those things you have to try to decide.
It not like it's haggis.

I thought the Canadian battle cry was "TIMBERRRRRRRRRR".

Don't you have lumberjacks anymore?

I don't think we had lumberjacks ( maybe back east? ). We have loggers.

Hate to tell you David but you will also be hard pressed at finding a restaurant south of that has malt vinegar for their french fries or any kind of vinegar for that matter. You can also pretty well forget about a nice glass of Clamato juice as well.
