    some of you may have recieved this silly email...but I thought it was kinda worth reading...so If you haven't gotten it....give it a read.

    And then God created Canada - finally a joke that explains what it's like to be Canadian. Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for 6 days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the 7th Day. He inquired of God, "Where have you been?" God sighed a deep sigh of
    >satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds. "Look Michael, look what I've made!" Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it??" "It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance. "Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to the different parts of Earth.
    "For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while Southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot and over there I have placed a continent of white people and over there a continent of black people." God continued, pointing to different countries, "This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice". The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a large land mass in the top corner and asked, "What's that one?" "Ahh" said God, "that's Canada, the most glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers, streams and an exquisite coastline.
    The people of Canada are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be loved and respected throughout the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hardworking and high achieving and they will be known by all as highly respected diplomats and carriers of peace. I'm also going to give them super-human undefeatable ice hockey players who
    will be admired and feared by all who come across them."
    Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance!!" God replied wisely: Wait till you see the loud-mouthed arrogant bastards I'm putting next to them!!!"

    I thought being Canadian meant listening to Alanis Morissette and buying a brand new Toyota Matrix.

    I saw this joke 2 years ago... Its actually aimed at the english, and written from an Irish point of view :D

    I think the hockey part is original though.

    boo, people just tailor make it for whatever country they want. it's not just the hockey part. the irish bit is this:

    'And God said "Ahhh that's the Emerald Isle - that's a very special place. That's going to be the most glorious spot on earth; Beautiful Mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, and an exquisite coastline. These people here are going to be great craic and they're going to be found traveling the world. They'll be playwrights and poets and singers and songwriters. And I'm going to give them this black liquid which they're going to go mad on and for which people will come from the far corners of the earth to imbibe."'

    of course it's neither origional, nor really clever.

    I just thought it was somewhat cute, and it made me smile, so I posted it.

    people really need to stop scrathing everything to see what's underneith, cause for the most part there really isn't much beneith most of what you find on the internet.....just enjoy if for what it is....a stupid fleeting moments enjoyment.

    A Canadian is someone who knows how to make love in a canoe.

    Anyone know who said that? Cos I don't have a fucking clue.

    ps. I think that joke was written for Kiwis, beside those Ozzie 'tards. Just sub in cricket for hockey.
