look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
42.
Large country occupying the northern portion of North America.
The name Canada came from a mis-translation by early explorers of a native word meaning Village.
Large in size but sparsely populated, the country was an integral ally player in WW2, however most of it's forces were decomissioned when hostilities ceased. Canada contributed many very skilled troops and pilots for the european campaign, and were pivotal in the European beach landings.
Economically, Canada contibutes vast amounts of raw resources not least of which are energy products. Northern Alberta has vast oilsands deposits that may contain as much oil as the middle east, and are mostly untapped, meaning there will still be lots of oil, albeit fairly expensive, long after the wells run dry in Saudi Aribia.
Canada has some of the largest unspoiled forrests left in the world.
Canada's primary trading partner is the USA, which shares the longest ungaurded border (figuratively speaking)in the world.
To address all the flamers out there, Canadians and Americans for the most part like each other, except for an embarassingly high number of obnoxious loudmouths on either side of the border.
Explorer: What is this place?
Native: Kanta.
Explorer: Canada, that's what this country is called.
Guide: I think he means the village.
Explorer: Nope, pretty sure he means the country. This place is called Canada.

Here are some reasons to be proud to be Canadian:

2. Crispy Crunch, Coffee Crisp
3. The size of our footballs fields and one less down

9. Mr. Dress-up kicks Mr. Rogers ass
10. Tim Hortons kicks Dunkin' Donuts ass
11. In the war of 1812, started by America, Canadians pushed
the Americans back...past their 'White House'. Then we burned it...and most of Washington, under the command of William Lyon McKenzie who was insane and hammered all the time. We got bored because they ran away, so we came home and partied...Go figure..
12. Canada has the largest French population that never surrendered to
Germany.
13. We have the largest English population that never ever surrendered or withdrew during any war to anyone, anywhere.
14. Our civil war was a bar fight that lasted a little over an hour.
15. The only person who was arrested in our civil war was an American
mercenary, who slept in and missed the whole thing... but showed up just in time to get caught.
16. We knew plaid was cool far before Seattle caught on.
17. The Hudsons Bay Company once owned over 10% of the earth's surface and is still around as the worlds oldest company.
18. The average dog sled team can kill and devour a full grown human in under 3 minutes.
19. We still know what to do with all the parts of a buffalo.
20. We don't marry our kin-folk.
21. We invented ski-doos, jet-skis, velcro, zippers, insulin, penicillin, zambonis, the telephone and short wave radios that save countless lives each year.
22. We ALL have frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it.
23. A Canadian invented Superman.

BUT MOST IMPORTANT!
24. The handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands with mitts on. OOOoohhhhh Canada!!

Oh yeah... and our elections only take one day.

Hey,
I am not a lumber jack or a fur trader,
and I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber or own a dog sled,
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzie from Canada although I am certain they're really, really nice, uh,
I have a Prime Minster not a president,
I speak English and French, not American,
and I pronounce it about, not a boot,
I can proudly sew my country's flag on my back pack,
I believe in peace keeping, not policing, diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch.
And it is pronounced zed, not zee, zed.
Canada is the second largest landmass,
the first nation of hockey,
and the best part of North America.
thank you very much!

One of America's best allies. There is no reason for Americans to bash Canada or Canadians to bash America. God bless Canada and God bless America. May the two wonderful nations live together in harmony.
America: I love you, Canada!!
Canada: I love you too, America!!

Canada is a country directly above my own. We have many things in common. How about I list some?
1)We both use maple syrup like crazy.(We have something called IHOP)
2)We both play hockey (personally I dont)
3)We both buy and sell products with each other
4)We both have thousands of hypocritical asses who post their intellectually devoid "insults" on urbandictionary.com

Our large neighbor to the north. Largest chief cities include Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnepeg, Vancouver, and Calgary. They have the flag with the well-known maple leaf in the center. They are not cowards and pansies contrary to popular belief. Canada sent thousands of soldiers to fight and die in World War I, and again in World War II, and even joined our coalition against the Communists during the Korean War.
I don't think they are weak at all. I earnestly hope that the United States and Canada shall become allies. I would be proud, as well as millions of other Americans, to have them as close friends.
I would love for Canada and the United States to have a closer, friendly relationship with one another, and to stand together against terrorism. Canada is an awesome country.

The second largest country in the world, which is unfortunately highly steryotyped. We do't walk around wearing SARS masks and saying 'eh' all the time, or any of those other idiotic stereotypes posted! We've got a very diverse population including Sri Lankans, Macedonians, Bulgarians, Ethiopians, Guyanese, Jamacians, Italians, Indians, Argentenians, Vietnamese, Laotian, and many more! We don't all live in igloos, and don't all hate Americans. Hell, I've got an aunt in Chicago! gawd, why cant all people get along?!
