How to insult people around the world – or something December 16, 2008 | Posted in One-link-ers | 3 replies OK, so read #10 and tell me if it doesn’t make you question the validity of 1-9. Because if 10 is valid, I missed a memo.
That’s definitely only half true. I don’t care if someone thinks I’m a Canuck, but they don’t like people assuming they’re from the US (or as they like to call it, South Canada). If I recall correctly from college, 75% of them live within a hundred or so miles of the border, which probably suggests something or other.
The Canadians I work with don’t care one way or the other — but then, they’re working in the US so maybe it’s just that if they cared they wouldn’t be here in the first place.
So wait, does that mean I have to stop singing “Hark the herald angels sing” in a horrible pantomime of a British accent every year? ;)
