Steve McQueen's not dead- I just saw him on TV last night! He was trying to get in to Canada by jumping the bobwar fence on a motorcycle. But a whole bunch of bad guys tried to stop him.

I didn't see what happened next because I ran out of quarters for the coin-operated TV here at the Notell Motel...

Hi: All...I was going for a rebuttal but decided instead to say that most famous Americans are really Canadians trying to keep warm.
As for Looney...that's a relative term.

During a beer strike here in B.C. I drove down to Blaine Wa. and picked up two dozen Molson Canadian. At the border I had to pour out a dozen because I was over the limit, even though I was willing to pay duty, bringing Canadian beer back to Canada.

And, if nothing else, the loonie makes cents.

Keep in mind the beer they are accustomed to drinking in the USA. So a 6 pack would be more than enough to do the trick ;-)))

... well, you know the old joke: why is sex in a canoe like American beer? No, you can go Google the rather rude answer.

As for what is the Grey Cup, there is but one answer: AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGOOOSSSS!!!!

Hate to ruin a joke or an urban myth, but beer, the world over, generally falls between 4.5 and 5.5 per cent alcohol by volume. There are some exceptions ( specialty brews for occasional imbibing ). There are different ways of measuring alcohol content and that is probably how the idea that U.S. beer is weaker than Canadian beer came about.

The beer I drink is 11%. It comes in 1.18L bottles.

I have a friend who makes beer. He says that anything over 7% is impossible. I like to drink the impossible. That, and less bathroom breaks.

They recently added new legislation in Alberta to deal with beer that is up to 60%. I have no idea were one would even buy that.

Anything over that is fortified. Personally I fortify mine with shot of fine whiskey in between beers rather than add alcohol to the beer. I hear Canada makes some pretty smooth whiskey, not that I would know ya know.

In support of our Yank beer (USA) I sent a sample to a laboratory and the answer was that my horse has diabetes.

Women's Health Magazine is right on top of the all-important Ten Strongest Beers! question...not that anyone needs to know...or bookmark the sources...

I'm sure every single one of the brewskies named is a Canadian Brand or an American ripoff of one...or was at least made in a Canadian designed tank that started off as a septic tank.

Though nice for many of us is if you don't have to bust the ice off the surface, in order to go swimming.

But for those of us further from the Border ...
