Sorry abooi that.

If I may, I would like to apologize for the behaviour of Canada over the last two weeks.We are not normally so fervent in showing our patriotic belief in Canada.I know that it was quite a shock to a lot of the world when we let our patriotism loose. Sorry aboot that,eh. Canada will now return to the nice,quiet,polite people that you thought we were. The fourteen GOLD medals that our athletes won will do for now.

well done Canada. It was fun actually to hear a bunch of people sing your anthem. One doesn't hear that too often.

I don't intend to. This proved with can be patriotic and not apathetic towards achieving average athletic results. I full intend to keep my pride. I have been wanting this for 30 freaking years.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Hey, Canada didn't behave like a bunch of Hosers, celebrating, so why not let em enjoy the outburst?

Not really.
You first have to get a Federal Right to Passage Permit to cross the Mason-Dixon line,swear allegiance to the Union at the state courthouse,study the English language without using double-negatives.
This is just to make it to the Canadian border then a whole other process begins before you can enter.

This unusual boisterous celebration next to our northern border might be interpreted as some sort of political insurrection and reap the wrath of our Homeland Defence.We're just concerned for their safety.
