    by not even mentioning some of the most serious problems up there, like Mayor Ford's buddy Justin Beiber:

    Canada may have its problems (Mayor Ford or Stephen Harper, anyone?) but it is very culturally different.
    And yeah who doesn't?
    By the way, I happen to find baby seal meat delicious.
    I mean really, to play the devil's advocate, those animals really live quite the charmed life until moments before death, unlike the gazillions of factory-farmed animals subject to horrific conditions during their entire lives right here in the good ole 'USA . .. .

      and it actually is delicious. Now hear in Maine, it's illegal to kill seals and I see those cute little critters in the harbor all the time. Makes my mouth water. Much tastier than whale. Which is pretty tasty.

      Don't get me started on Roof Rabbit.

        on that when I listed "baby seal meat" as what I was going to bring to a work-related potluck 3 or 4 years ago.

        The point being, I was planning a trip to Canada just before that, and I thought I could pick some up dirt cheap!

        The entire idea wasn't all that well received by my coworkers, however, except for a very nice lady temporarily here from Korea who dropped by my office to tell me how very much (with all sincerity,I believe) she was looking forward to my culinary contribution . ..
