Get it? Blink and you'll miss it? Nevermind.
Today, our neighbors to the North, the Canadians, eh, are celebrating a national holiday [link]. What the day is about, I don't care. What I do know is that it seems they are like the neighbor who lives in the flat upstairs that is insanely jealous about your raucous and popular partay each weekend and tries to throw their own. But their party turns out to be nothing more than a gathering of doughnut-eating, flannel shirt-wearing, beer-swilling hockey pukes who smell like caribou. Get a real holiday! Like the Fourth of God-Bless-America July!
