Canadian Nelly Furtado has high hopes for her country in the London Olympics -- though she's as confused as we are about which events they plan to dominate. Is maple syrup a sport yet? We kid, we kid.

victoriagirl, the subject is the olympics and which countries will win which category, not the climate and cultures of the competing countries. Based on your chanel logo picture, you seem just as culture-less as the people you are talking about. It is VERY ignorant for a Canadian to say that you know how much Americans know. I'm Canadian, but I'm not offended by a harmless joke about Americans not knowing what we are good at in sports, we have plenty of gold medal talent ....I don't care what Americans think or know about us

Duuuude! Canada is great at the summer Olympics. You need to wikipedia that ish up. We kick it at trampoline, triathelons, mountain biking, kayaking, rowing (our big event).... And we love TMZ because TMZ is hilarious and we have a wicked sense of humour, eh.

I am so tired of Americans acting this way towards Canada... yet who puts the Canadian flag on luggage while travelling to other countries so that people don't mistake them for being American? Even Dax mentioned wearing a Canadian flag on a TMZ episode and quoted "because people love Canadians!" *Rolls eyes

I don't even know why Americans think they rule the world. Other countries bomb them for crying out loud, and then rally up other countries to help fight their war - then they have the audacity to turn around and mock the countries who are STILL fighting because of them. 158 Canadian soldiers have been killed in the war since 2002...and for WHAT?

Canada seems like a joke to other countries because of the way Americans treat us. Watch "South Park" and every other American sitcom that mentions Canada... it's nothing but misconceptions and stereotypes. The whole, "eh, aboot, slow speech, maple syrup and Canadian bacon diet, igloo for houses and moose for transportation" bit is ridiculous, overused and not even funny. So why continue mocking? Oh, I know!... So you guys can teach the next generation of Americans to be just as uneducated and ignorant, right?!

You guys have NO IDEA how much of an influence Canada has been and what we're capable of. Inventions include: Insulin, pace makers, electric wheelchairs, light bulbs, basketball, hockey, 5-pin bowling, IMAX, AM radio, cable TV, the World's first commercial motion picture, the telephone, air-conditioned vehicles, walkie-talkies, standard time, paint rollers, washing machines, kerosene, ear piercer, dental mirrors, medical instruments, electric hand prosthesis for children, zippers, electric cooking range, Superman... and much more.

BlackBerry is Canadian, and how many celebs and Americans are seen with a BlackBerry phone? And how many people watch Saturday Night Live? Guess what? The creator and producer of that show was born and raised in Toronto. Cirque du Soleil, the most popular circus art and street entertainment is guess what? CANADIAN! Avatar, Titanic, The Terminator, The Abyss, Aliens... all thanks to James Cameron. Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Ryan Reynolds, Tom Green, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Nina Dobrev, Elisha Cuthbert, Kristin Kreuk, Kevin Zegers, John Candy, Pamela Anderson, Kim Cattrall, Hayden Christensen, Christopher Plummer, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Sandra Oh, Rick Fox, Keanu Reeves, Matthew Perry, William ****ner, Michael Cera, Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen, Ellen Page, Will Arnett, Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, Cory Monteith, Shannon Tweed, Neve Campbell, Howie Mandel, Brendan Fraser, Alex Trebek, Sarah Chalke, Dan Aykroyd, Drake, Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, Hedley, Down with Webster, Marianas Trench, Robin Thicke, Michael Buble, David Foster, Deadmau5, Feist, City and Colour, Barenaked Ladies are ALL from Canada.

Including on Forbes "World's 10 Best Places to Live" and other top 10 places to live lists, Vancouver, Canada is ranked number 4. And the States is nowhere to be found... I wonder why! Well, I think I made my point very clear. Thank you for reading my rant. I apologize for any spelling and grammatical errors in this message.

Have a good day! :)

I'm very proudly Canadian. I can take a joke, even when it is so obvious I can see it coming a mile away.
Who cares!!!!
Fellow Canadians - consider the source.
