And if you find yourself surrounded by melonheads, then you might want to consider moving somewhere with more bright sparks or you might want to find some new acquaintances. Contrary to popular belief, there aren't any more morons in America than there are anywhere else.
I've always hated that Rick Mercer stuff. Americans have their share of faults it is true but I wonder how smart many Canadians would look if you ambushed them in the streets and asked them certain questions about other parts of Canada, including probably their own.

I don't hate it - I find it hilarious - but I am sure that some Canadians would be equally daft if ambushed and asked USA-oriented questions! And of course we need to keep in mind that they only broadcast the daft answers. (Okay excpet for the 65 minutes in an hour - how could anyone actuially fall for that one! )
