Today is Canada Day. What's so great about Canada?

Our police wear the red serge (on parade, anyway) and they don't carry guns. They can, however, kill someone with a well placed taser shot.

Our national animal is the beaver (nudge nudge, wink wink).

The environment? We've got it. All of it. Don't worry. It's safe.

Canada's entry into the Miss World Pageant was transgendered. How subversive is that?

We fought against the U.S. in 1812 when the Americans tried to invade. They were eight million strong and we had a mere five hundred thousand defended by 5700 officers and men and militia led by Sir Isaac Brock. We kicked the Yankees back to America. During the skirmish a group of lads from York (modern day Toronto) marched to Washington and set the White House on fire. True story.

Our national dish is french fries, melted cheese curds and gravy on a plate. Yum.

When Canadians protest, they protest naked.

Joe Shuster -- who, along with Joel Siegel, created Superman -- was Canadian.

William Shatner. Need i say more?

James Cameron. Love him or hate him, he is Canadian.

Justin Bieb... no... never mind. Forget I said anything there...

Universal Health Care. It's not perfect by any means, but having it is better than not having it.

And finally that Maple Leaf logo is just so stylin'!

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

Beautiful post. I love how some of my best Canadian buddies are doing great Canada Day posts. I am gonna steal that Shatner thing from you and link back to you. Have a good day my friend.
