WARNING: Sense of humor required: do not proceed if you're having a bad day.

"This Hour has 22 Minutes" which often has a feature called 'Talking to Americans'..if you haven't seen it...you got to.

Some highlights:

Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas congratulating Canada on building a dome to prevent the Canadian Parliament building from melting, which he was told was a giant igloo made entirely of ice.

Al Gore responding to the question of whether he would continue the U.S. presidential tradition of visiting Toronto, the capital of Canada, as his first official state visit.

Bush responding very enthusiastically during the election, to the endorsement by Canadian Prime Minister "Jean Poutine." The reporter used the name "Jean Poutine" two or three times.

Americans congratulating Canada for legalizing VCRs.

Americans congratulating Canada on becoming part of North America

A Harvard professor and students signing a petition to stop the hunting of seals in Calgary, and not one, but two, Princeton professors stating that they are strongly opposed to the hunting of polar bears in Toronto.

Americans agreeing after the election, that their country might be better off adopting the Canadian system of voting, which is to place either a pine cone or a piece of birch bark in a box.

Tourists at Mount Rushmore agreeing that the Canadian company that owns the mountain should be allowed to mine the plutonium in it, if they drill through the backs of the presidents' heads.

You let the Irish vote?

That's still a joke right?
