  • I'm chuckling here, but it really is a sad commentary on our reality.

  • That's pretty funny. Are the creative force behind it?

  • Oops! I meant to say, "Are YOU the creative force behind it?"

  • "Mouse Heads"? I don't get it, but cool nonetheless. :-)

  • Now this has had we Aussies laughing all morning.
    kvatch, I was wondering about the "Mouse Heads". Always thought it was "cheese heads"! Either way it suggests a certain sense of security having those Canadians there.

  • Oh wait - moose heads, right?

    I agree with rockync - funny-sad.

  • So I copied this possible explanation off another blog...

    I think I know the answer (and Im not even a native English speaker)

    So, the Americans often emphasize the canadian accent by saying ‘hoose’ instead of ‘house’for example, so they could point out a stereotypic tendency which turns the ‘ou’diphthong into the ‘oo’ monophthong (which is not quite correct by the way, since this vowel shift is not this drastic and only can be found in the eastern regions.)

    Therefore in Mouseheads there is a double reference. First the ou -> oo change (Mooseheads) than the simple Moose-Canada idea

    Sounds as plausible as anything else.

  • But you didn't say where the great graphic came from...

  • Oh, I saw it at work and then I just found it on the internet.

  • I always knew you thought this of Americans,, I glad you finally admited it.

  • That's great! And sadly, true.

  • Lysander,

    It is called humor. There is an element of truth to it.


    Don't worry yourself with the rest of the world. America will keep you safe.
