Canada Day!

Well, as many of you know, yesterday was the great celebration up here in the white north, otherwise known as Canada day! So, here's a bit of Canadian history for you (don't worry, I'll keep it brief, not that there's really much to say in the first place :P). In 1867, a large army of one million men were amassed at New York and this scared one of our founding fathers, Sir John A. MacDonald (old guy in the middle). So, him and our other founding fathers, Legolas the Elf, a random hobbit and Lumber-jack Bill decided to form a country, because Superman (whose original creator Joe Shuster was Canadian and after reading his history textbook got the idea for Superman) and Wolverine, who was mad about America because he's a cranky Canadian, got into a fight and were tearing down all the general stores! There's also something about Native Americans.......methinks I should'nt have taken all those naps in history class....
