No, Canada: Our Neighbor To The North Gets Its Own ‘Jersey Shore’

November 9th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen

Canada, you’re supposed to be a refuge from the ugly shit that makes Americans, well, Americans, and, perhaps more importantly, not you.

Minutes later, South Korea got disqualified for this bump, which happened during the last turn:

I hate that the Greyhound bus beheader, Vince Weiguang Li, is Canadiasian.

This is not Canada. This is not Asian.
