Pretend to be Canadian!

I found this lurking in the weird news section.....


Worried About Traveling Abroad? Pretend To Be Canadian

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Want to travel abroad but don't want to be tagged as an American? A New Mexico T-shirt company suggests going Canadian.

For $24.95, T-shirtKing.com offers a "Go Canadian" package that includes a Canadian flag T-shirt, a Canadian flag lapel pin and a Canadian patch for luggage or a backpack.

There's also a quick reference guide -- "How to Speak Canadian, Eh?" -- on answering questions about Canada.

The "Go Canadian" idea emerged after a staffer had heard about someone being harassed about U.S. politics during a recent overseas trip.

T-shirt-King.com President Bill Broadbent said it's not meant as a slight against either the United States or Canada. But since the package went up on the Web site last month, a couple of hundred have been sold.

Dani Delaney is one of those people who bought the package. She said she admires Canada's progressiveness and think it's a good way to peacefully protest.

Gecko they'll be able to spot the American fakers right away. They're the fatties trying to squeeze into those T's.

One other thing us ugly Americans need to learn is to drink excessive amounts of beer while playing hockey or curling
