Bye, bye Miss Canadian pie…
Blog Guy, I read that the Canadians are thinking of changing their national anthem, to make it gender-neutral. That sounds extreme. How sexist could their anthem be, anyway?
You be the judge. Here are the lyrics:
Our home and native land!
Girls in the kitchen, to give their moms a hand,
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
Thee bake thine bumbleberry pies,
From far and wide, O Canada,
We cook and clean for thee
Hold on! I think you just made up that crap about cooking and cleaning and pies yourself.
Yeah, I did. It was easier than transcribing the real words.
I bet you changed Oh Canada to O Canada, too!
O no I didn’t. That part is true. I guess there’s no H in the Canadian alphabet.
Really? I’m planning a vacation to Canada, so that’s very useful travel advice. Are there any good Canadian hotels?
Probably, but remember, up there I guess they call them “otels.”
