What do Canadians think of the US?

Post by landrew » Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:53 am

Is the US still like a big brother,
or it it more like a crazy old uncle, nowadays?

It's like a loud and obnoxious neighbour who doesn't understand why we park our cars in garages or mow our lawns.

I think it doesn't make sense to mow your lawn too short. It takes the same length of time to grow to cutting length, and longer grass hides the dog poop better.

Longer grass is where mosquitoes build their war machines.
