Whew! For awhile there I thought the thread was totally lost! (I might poke fun at the Canadian government, even the culture, but no one should ever doubt their courage under fire. "Sergeant MacKenzie" is one of the most moving songs ever written!)
Back in the early 1900s, during the heyday of Teddy Roosevelt, a yank was visiting London and decided to post a letter home. He barged into the post office, stepped up to the counter, and in a loud, blustery voice said "How much to send a letter to God's country - the greatest nation on earth - the good ol' U.S. of A?" Without batting an eye the clerk calmly responded "Tuppence. Same as the other the colonies."
Keep 'em coming.
