</a></b></a>sabotabby posts a poll about the upcoming Canadian elections. And the unthinkable happens: the free-spirited debate and discussion fostered by the internets quickly degenerates into a free-for-all between Canadian patriots, American patriots, tea lovers, and non-American patriots.
</a></b></a>groovitude: OMG, I call for a new poll. This one has too many choices.
</a></b></a>sabotabby: Pfft. That's what you get for not living under a two-party system.
</a></b></a>groovitude: Dude, give us credit for our two party system, which is a direct result of declaring our independence from Britain about one million years before Canada.
</a></b></a>sabotabby: We have better tea as a result of our tardiness.
</a></b></a>groovitude: Well, on the other hand, America has given the world the choice to drink iced tea made from the melted ice of the polar caps. Mmmmm...environmentalicious.
</a></b></a>sabotabby: Yeah, but Canada's going to start offering clubbed-baby-seal hamburgers.
</a></b></a>groovitude: Oh, yeah? America gives the wretched refuse of your teeming shore the freedom to be deported nicely or kicked on the can until it hits the fan.
The discussion was continued by </a></b></a>frippy, who brought her own terminology to the debate.
</a></b></a>frippy: But we don't have to have that ugly-ass queen lizardbreath on our moneys and highways and washroom signs...
</a></b></a>sabotabby: Yes, but we can sing all the "sod off, you inbred tyrant" type punk anthems from the UK and really mean it.
</a></b></a>frippy: Yeah, those colonial American anthems like "Fuck King George the Third with a Hardened Biscuit*" don't have the same punch 230 years later.
