If Canada Ruled the World

Canadians are apparently wonderful folks--only we steal stuff from the Fark Forums.

Here's a neat little combination beaver shot and meme all in one, 'cos we're efficient like that, yo.




You know, I don't think much more needs to be said. Or at least, given the possible proximity of the words "beaver", "fur", and "burger" I feel strongly that I should quit now.



But my personal fave? Looky here:

Thank you for this! I have never seen the Fark site before. It is now bookmarked.

Don'tcha just love that intellektually inquisitive Canadian Platypus - such a superior-engineering Hydraulic species

The Aquilan Secret Police have [singular form, plural concept] long been searching, not for Mr BLaden, but for a Photographic Representation of the elusive, but incisive Monsieur Metro

Has Mr Cheeseburger afforded such a Representation

Should the title of the Post be :

If only Canadian Platypuses Ruled the World

Alles Gute und

Tot siens

Ah, if you liked these, go to the original: Worth1000! I stole most of my Canadian images from them. Love the Bob and Doug Mackenzie chairing the UN one...and the "Their serial killers...ugly. Our serial killers, hawt!" Homolka one. Classy!

@Az:
You're entirely welcome. Please feel free to look around my internet and steal anything at all that you fancy :-)

@g eagle:
Saludos, bonus aquila.
The Australians actually developed the platypus by bioengineering from beaver stock.

Why d'you think it was so "elusive" before? The point is that, like the red kangeroo, it didn't actually exist.

Australia happened to cotton on early to the fact that if you assert the existence of cryptozoo-oids, the tourists will just flock to you.

So they invented these things: giant rabbit-things, tree-dwelling bears that survive on eucalyptus and sloth, and of course this sort of shovel-nosed beaver.

Canadians lack this imagination, but are well-equipped with verifiable cryptofauna such as the renowned Pacific Tree Octopus, the Rocky Mountain Walrus, and the Giant Canadian Groper (examples of which may be found in numbers at any bar near a youth hostel).

Just attributing my sources. W1000 is well worth the visit. Possibly even worth 999 visits.
