U.S. eyes fencing along Canadian border - ugh

Canadian bacon is just bacon made from the back, instead of the belly. Belly bacon has lots of fat; back bacon is meatier. The flavor is otherwise pretty similar.

If we're going to secure Americuh from the evil "eh" menace there's only one way to do it.

A 1000 mile (Americuns don't do that metric nonsense) moat between the two countries filled with maple syrup heated to a temperature bodering magma!

I suddenly want to try to cooking bacon in superheated maple syrup.

Yeah, we don't call it Canadian bacon though, we just call it back bacon or sometimes peameal bacon.

The sad thing is that in some places when you want to get Canadian Bacon on pizza they put ham on it. And that's no kind of bacon at all.

Bacon from the back is fatback. Canadian bacon is ham. You can't fool me with your socialist logic.

Well, one positive of a fence along the U.S./Canada border would be controlling the number of Canadians who swoop down from the Great White North and marry Americans, especially American clergy.

That's a different kind of bacon from the back.... it's so fatty it's barely bacon. And ham is different again... ham is the butt.

You take that back! :slap: It is delicious bacon, even if it will take 10 years off your life.

You're right. I should go back home and enjoy my free health care (which will bankrupt my country soon enough )

THIS CAN BE CHANGED YOU KNOW.

And here I thought you were talking about this:

Would this fence be to keep the Canadians out or Americans in?

This is a measured response to the settlements that Canada has built in south Florida.

The threat is real. They paved the way by infiltrating the mass media to discredit patriotic speech. Celine Dion is the 21th century Hanoi Jane.

Should we blockade them as well? Should we murder Turks in international waters if they try to bring cement into Canada? I'm sure someone would support us.

Robin Williams tried to warn us 20 years ago.........

When raw milk cheese is outlawed, only outlaws will have raw milk cheese.

Laugh it up, but this fence is critical national security measure to prevent the trafficking of Strange Brew from across the border.

They broke us with that onslaught. Now they're going to send in another wave of comedians to mop us up.

But, this thread has reminded me of my favorite video:

We are fortunate for having survived the dark times, the lost age, the whispered of but no longer spoken aloud, Summer of '69.

Wow. Great. Now I'm doubly Canadian after watching this video.

Also good song.

A fence to hold back Canadians? As silly an idea as a bag to hold milk!

How long will a full scale invasion via canoe take?

If we use 24-person Voyageur canoes it would take @[email protected] way too long. Our real Canadian beer would run out before we got across Lake Superior.

Hey, the last time we got in a fight with Canadians, they kicked our collective ass. We best be a bit more polite in our ribbing.

I hate it when daddy and daddy fight.

America might have unmanned armed UAVs, Navy Seals, Delta Force, unnamed black ops group, tanks-tanks-tanks, but you know what we got?

A used submarine we bought from the Brits. Oh yeah. You read that right. USED. Watch out.

It'll get fixed someday. Just you wait.

Oh and we are also going to buy 65 of your F-35 fighter jets.

Or we could just all love each other.

Oh it's not just USED equipment, behold and fear our $35 billion over 30 years warship project![size=10]*[/size]

Except the Americans spend this much on their war machines.. what is it now, every afternoon?

[size=10]*I hate this project, there are many places I'd rather see the money going but that's for another thread.[/size]

Over on MeFi, someone commented that they heard about a Canadian destroyer involved in some altercation somewhere.

"Wait," their first reaction was. "We have warships?"
