I love understated and subtle humor, but she came across as mean spirited, not funny. She obviously doesn't get satire.

I dunno. Aren't European beers superior to any North American beer?

I like to remind Canadians they abused their Native population about as much as we Americans did ours.

Why do you like to do that? Does it make you feel good?

What makes you think Canadians need you to remind them about Canadian history? I'm pretty sure Canadians are a hell of a lot more familiar with Canada's history with its First Nations people than you are. So your reminder is not necessary and it's pointless other than that you are simply looking for a fight trying to engage in finger pointing and accusations without any provocation.

And then some Canadians wonder why people from other countries get a kick out of teasing Canadians - it's because they know that a lot of Canadians are on the defensive and make it too easy to tease and insult them and are just begging for it. Seriously, why give a damn about the unimportant things that non-Canadians say or think about Canada and why let them yank chains over such stupid stuff? Why is it hard to brush it off?

You know what, if Canadians get their knickers in a twist over that kind of juvenile stuff then they deserve all the teasing they might get dished out to them because they are asking for it.

Yet another reason I don't live on the left coast, and yes I have been there and stayed in different cities there for a while.

Each to his own, eh?

Be my guest. If we can’t laugh about ourselves, what good is life?

On the other hand, we Americans have so many unintentionally bizarre things going on with our goverment and society that contemporary humor is a rare commodity. Except for this:

I will continue to make fun of "aboot" as long as my Canadian connection keeps saying "Joisey".

But the beer is really good!
