Canada Eh

Ocean Falls, B.C. has on average Over 300 days of rain a year Surely not somewhere I'd want to live Many attempt suicide I hear Canadians have a funny habit of Ending each sentence with an “eh” Couldn't be a bank robber in the U.S.A. The “eh” would be a dead giveaway Average number of folks in our households Is roughly 2.6, give or take Would sure like to meet that .6 person An interesting image that'd make Millions attend our Calgary Stampede But we're really not a bunch of yahoos We're a very computer literate country Emails we send quite a slew A unique Canadian one dollar coin Was introduced back in 1987 It's affectionally known as a loonie But it doesn't describe us, thank heaven Even dog food here is tax-deductible Expecting big lineups at immigration Reason to migrate to this wonderful land We welcome folks from ever nation © Jack Ellison 2103

    Also you said you've been busy lately. No need to apologize for not catching up... I've been busy as well with my job at the baseball stadium coming up. I'll try my best to catch up with my Soup friends, but it won't be as easy now...

    Great insight into your country. Living in Idaho it's not a very long drive to Canada (yet for some reason I've still never been). One hilarious song I heard that was about the difference between Canadians and Americans is Stronger Beer by Tim Hicks (ironic I know). He's a Canadian country singer, though, it's worth a listen :)

    Dragon wants to know If he tells the authorities he has a canadian dogasaurus... can he get a tax break here? Silly Dragon... The dogasaurus is from down under...and that means the center of the earth... I hear another poem brewing... 'Fire and Brimstone' came from your poem about ringing the liberty bells... See what you do to me...LOL
