Happy Canada Day!


The original name for Canada, dreamed up by a parliamentary committee in London, was "Cold North Dominion," but that waas too long, so they abbreviated it C.N.D. The King's Royal Governor presented the new name to the inhabitants, and they didn't say a word. Just looked at him.

"Well, what do you think?" asked the Royal Governor?

"C., eh?" said the first fellow, and just looked at the Governor.

"N., eh?" says the second guy.

"D., eh?" says a third one. Then silence.

"Hey," says the Governor. "I like that. It's a helluva lot easier to pronounce when you spell it that way."

So that's how Canada got its name.

Happy July 1 to everyone up north!


It's not the first of July yet here (Toronto, 40 more minutes), but happy Canada Day!


Happy Canada Day! Coming from pretty much a third world country, I can say that this is the greatest country in the world to live in, and it invented the best game in the world (Hockey) and I am DAMN PROUD to be a citizen of such an amazing nation! I will be in Toronto protesting the North American Union so that we can keep our Sovereignty and we can enjoy this day for years to come instead of "Happy Amero Day."


Well I'll be ringing in July 1 while deadlifting!

Those poor bastards in BC still have hours to wait.


Damn you guys and your early Canada Day!
