Canada - Don't let Toronto spoil it for you.

bigcitylib said...

That's 8 words.

Raging Ranter said...

Shit, I missed the six word stipulation.

Canada - even Toronto can't ruin it.

Ti-Guy said...

Too bad the rightwingers don't have a sense of humour...that's the element of anglophilia the raging mediocrities at The Nazi Post don't recognise.

Your submission was funny, BCL. Fatty's up there, of course, is not, since it's just a puerile "Yeah, well you're ugly too!" riposte. But his mommy thinks he's a laff-riot, so who am I to judge?

I've always liked "As Canadian as possible, under the circumstances," although it's seven words.

Canada: Free from Liberals, at last

Canada - What? There's more than Toronto?

Toronto, happily full of crap :)

Toronto, head still stuck up its arse

I already said the rightwingers were humourless, anony. Don't belabour the point.

David Asper must be chagrined that his own submissions weren't any better than some retarded anonymous mouth-breather.

"We Want Our Canada Back"

"CanadaLiberal"

"As Canadian as possible, under the circumstances"

Pure comedic genius. More of that sophisticated sense of humour that Ti-Guy claims he has in abundance.

Ti-Guy, like all narcissists, you have very poor self-awareness and self-regulation. I understand. It's not your fault. But you might want to stick to areas where you are competent. That would be gratuitous profanity, paranoid accusations, and random attacks against your perceived enemies (i.e. anyone who disagrees with you, thus threatening your inflated, fragile ego). Humour is definitely NOT your calling.

bigcitylib said...

Actually, RR, that's a very famous line, and one I like as well.

Ti-Guy said...

Did Flaming Panties think I came up with that?

It's not gut-bustingly funny, but Canada rarely is...as RR amply (and full-bodied...ly) demonstrates.

At least you can mock American wingnuts. Ours are just irritating and dull.

Canada - the place that supports Toronto.

Canada - don't let Toronto discourage you.

Canada - no longer governed by criminals.

I'm surpised so many of you people can actually count to six.

Anonymous said...

All I have to do is count all my fingers,

or all my teeth,

or all the kids I've fathered . . . with my sister,

or the toes on my left foot,

or the number of people who think Dion is a great leader.

Who says we don't have a sense of humour?

So far no slogan at all featuring Saskatoon, the Athens of the Prairies? You Canucks really are humorless.

BYW, what term is used to refer to the residents of Saskatoon?

Steve Bloom said...

By the way, I'm an American shit-bag who doesn't have anyting better to do.

...Of course, you Canadians are eminently familiar with the type...

Steve Bloom said...

Apparently there's no law against humorless high school underclasspersons posting here.

Anyway, I'm impervious to such icicles and slushballs*. Recall the main point: What about the poor Saskatwegians? Don't you think their feelings are hurt even a little when you ignore them to focus your frozen bile** on me.

*I believe we're past the official Canadian cut-off date for being able to locate sticks and stones. Even if there's not much snow on the ground yet it's hard to bend over far enough to see a stick or stone when you've got that many layers of clothing on.

**Betcha didn't know any kind of bile could be focused, eh?

P.S. -- Harper has two chins. What kind of world do we live in where the war criminal gains no weight while his toadying sycophant gets fat?

bigcitylib said...

Steve,

The Saskatoonies already have a slogan for their province.

"Saskatchewan, where the skies are alive, but the night-clubs are dead."

We don't mock them because they're nice and they have enough problems.

Like sharing a border with North Dakota? It's a burden, I'll grant you.
