  11. In the war of 1812, started by America, Canadians pushed the Americans back...past their 'White House'.

  18. We still know what to do with all the parts of a buffalo.
  19. We don't marry our kin-folk.
  20. We invented ski-doos, jet-skis, velcro, zippers, insulin, penicillin, the telephone and short wave radios that save countless lives each year.
  21. We ALL have frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it.
  22. A Canadian invented Superman.
  23. BUT MOST IMPORTANT! The handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands with mitts on

OOOoohhhhh Canada!!

Alert reader Mark points out that Mr. Zamboni was actually, by some eddie in the space-time continuum, born in America, so Iíve removed him from the list. Just seems wrong though.
