11. In the war of 1812, started by America , Canadians pushed the Americans back past
    their White House. Then we burned it, and
    most of Washington ...
We got bored because they ran away.
Then, we came home and partied....
Go figure.

12.. Canada has the largest French population
that never surrendered to Germany .

13. We have the largest English population
that never Ever surrendered or withdrew
during any war to anyone, anywhere. EVER!
(We got clobbered in the odd battle but
prevailed in ALL the wars)

14.. Our civil war was fought in a bar and
lasted a little over an hour.

15. The only person who was arrested in our
civil war was an American mercenary, he
slept in and missed the whole thing.
He showed up just in time to get caught.

devour a full grown human in under 3 minutes.

of a buffalo.

21. We invented ski-doos, jet-skis, Velcro,
zippers, insulin, penicillin and the telephone.
Also short wave radios which save countless
lives each year.

something metal and lived to tell about it.

23. A Canadian invented Superman.

24. We have coloured money.

25. Our beer advertisements kick ass
(Incidently... so does our beer)

The handles on our beer cases are big enough
to fit your hands in with mitts on.

Pass this on if you're proud to be Canadian!!!
