More American Cartoons On Canada

I remember when I lived in Calgary, I’d speak with many Americans who genuinely believed that we had moose and polar bear roaming the streets of Calgary. Some even believed me when I jokingly said that instead my home in the city and a cottage in the countryside, I had a home in the city and an igloo in the countryside!

Go figure!

O' Canada

I enjoy the diversion of witty cartoons (especially those in The New Yorker magazine), and I’ve posted previously about funny cartoons that comment on American perceptions and stereotypes about Canada (for example, here and here).  Below are a few others that may provide for some amusement.

Everything About Jared

Even if it’s just petting around the house or walks through the park, there’s without doubt that dogs bring their owners (young along with old) a lot of joy. But some great benefits of having a dog go effectively beyond the fact that they’re cuddly and fun. So in case you’ve been wondering whether this can be the right, perfect time to have a four-legged animal to your family, here are some of the reasons why having a pet dog might be a very good idea:

1.       Dogs can teach your children values

Yoh! WTF? If an employee in Canada was to see this on a Performance Review, book your time off to attend a Human Rights Tribunal hearing. 🙂

The Tale Of Humoural Medicine

Job Performance

(1) “Since my last report, this employee has reached rock bottom…..and has started to dig.”

(2) “His men would follow him anywhere…but only out of morbid curiosity.”

(3) “I would not allow this employee to breed.”

(4) “This employee is really not so much of a ‘has-been’, but more of a definite ‘won’t be’.”

(5) “Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap.”

(6) “When she opens her mouth, it seems that it is only to change feet.”

(7) “He would be out of his depth in a parking lot puddle.”

(8) “This young lady has delusions of adequacy.”

(9) “He sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.”

(10) “This employee is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.”
