OPEN THREAD: Happy Birthday, Canada!
Happy Canada Day, to all our Canadian Wonkers, and all of our Wonkers who are seriously considering becoming Canadian in the near future! Which is probably all of you. Today, Canada celebrates Canada, but we can always celebrate all the beautiful things Canada has given us.
Like World's Sexxiest Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!
And William Shatner!
And my personal favorite television show OF ALL TIME, The Littlest Hobo. The show about a mysterious (AND POSSIBLY MAGICAL) dog who travels around Canada solving everyone's problems. Here is an episode of that show, in which Hobo and fellow Canadian Mike Myers help a paraplegic boy play in the big Frisbee game.
OH LOOK, CANADA AND I JUST MADE YOUR LIFE SO MUCH MORE AMAZING. There is also an episode featuring Abe Vigoda, who is not a Canadian, but who is your favorite. You're welcome.
Universal health insurance is also pretty amazing. I wish Canada would give us that.
But also they drink milk from bags and I think they legally require you to name all of your sons "Ryan."
HAPPY CANADA DAY, THIS IS YOUR OPEN THREAD!
