To all the Canadians on this site

I was just curious... what do you all think about the South Park movie and all of its Canadian bashing?

I find it mildly annoying, but don't take it too seriously.

I think it is funny! It's all pretty inaccurate bashing, and it's done in a way that is obviously a parody, so I don't feel a need to get all irritated by it.

remember...Canadians may be made fun of in a cartoon spoof, but we have the real life comedy...Dubya.

btw, doc, have you seen "Bowling for Columbine"?

Truly South Park was the most accurate portrait of Canada I've ever viewed. I didn't find it funny or offensive. Just regular.

Whenever I hear anyone bashing Canada, I just ask myself "What would Brian Boitano do?"

The show is a satire on small town America and how it perceives things. When it was making fun of Canada in that film, for example, it was really making fun of the small town American perception of Canada. In that regard, it really is quite funny.

FYI, South Park, Colorado really does exist.

^ I drove through there last year not having any idea that I was in South Park and suddenly my friend and I looked at each other at the same time and screamed, omg, it's South Park! I mean, it really looks like the cartoon and you kinda feel like you might be in a cartoon.

But I'm boosting this thread for another reason. I didn't want to start a new thread for this yet I wanted to tell the Canadians that I just met one of your apparently famous people: Shelagh Rogers. Of course I've never heard of her but I hear she's a bit popular up there. Sooooo nice, really lovely. I met her at a work dinner last night and then she was in our office this morning chattin' it up. Who is she anyway? I mean, I know she has a radio show but what is she all about?

I've always wondered this, too.

I'm not offended. I was going to watch it on tv but I'm going to be at the hockey game having a beer eh.

Has anyone been watching Conan in Toronto?

I have been having nightshifts all week...I wanted to see those conans so badly!!

at least I'll see tonights

and no, I'm not offended. I love seeing other countries make fun of us...it makes me feel proud to be Canadian in some weird way. Because usually they portray us and overly kind and naive...and I don't mind such a reputation to tell you the truth.
It feels like the kind of joshing you give your good friends. Having some good natured fun at their expense with nobody being offended,
It's better than being france and getting all your food names changed. What would you guys call Canadian bacon anyway, if we pissed you off?
