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.
