    Gee, I hope you like this......

    The Canada Rant from Molson Canadian Beer commercial

    Hey, I'm not a lumberjack or a fur trader

    I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber or own a dogsled

    and I don't know Jimmy or Sally or Suzy from Canada, although I'm certain they're really nice.

    I have a Prime Minister, not a President

    I speak English and French, not American

    And I pronounce it "about", not "a boot"

    I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack

    I believe in peace keeping, not policing

    diversity, not assimilation

    and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal

    A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch

    and it is pronounced "zed", not "zee", "zed!!!!"

    Canada is the second largest land mass!

    The first nation of hockey!

    And the best part of North America!

    My name is Joe and I am a Canadian!

    Source(s): William Shatner, who is Canadian, performed his own variation on the idea in a Just for Laughs appearance. He announced to the world: "I am not a Starfleet commander, ...or T.J. Hooker." The rant continues, making fun of Trekkies and his own typecasting as James T. Kirk.

    I just wanted to let you know that West Edmonton Mall is no longer the largest mall in the world. I am pretty sure it's the Mall of America, although that may have just been outdone by the upcoming complex in China.

    However did you know that a Canadian invented the telephone, insulin, and the light bulb! Not to mention instant mashed potato's... I mean really where would the world be without those?!

    Our first Prime Minister was a raging alcoholic, but still built the country, the RCMP, the world largest railroad. And Dog river was founded by him after he was done building Sunnyvale trailer park with his good friend Jim Lahey.
