Canada seems like a nice place. Some times they seem like a less conservative version of the United States. But then they do stuff like this that just kinda makes them look like another one of our very large states:

CALGARY � Canada’s recording industry has launched a legal hunt for at least 29 consumers it says illicitly share music files over the Web, but it must first win an opening skirmish against Internet service providers who are refusing to hand over customer information.

The case pits the Canadian Recording Industry Association against at least one major ISP, Shaw Communications Inc., which provides high-speed cable Internet service to 900,000 Canadians. Telus Corp., Rogers Cable Inc., Bell Canada’s Sympatico unit and Quebecor Inc.’s Vid�otron T�l�com Lt�e will also be in court.

You’d think they would have learned from the fact that just about every average joe MP3-downloader in America hates the fucking RIAA, but I guess not. I guess Celine wants her money. AND SHE WANTS IT NOW! All that’s left is to stop the free medical care and pour all tax money into the military. Join us, Canada. JOIN US.

Canada condemns Conan

February 14, 2004

Our neighbors to the north are really on a roll. At least their government is. But we all know you’re held accountable for the B.S. your government pulls, so Canada: what’s your fucking problem?

We just wanted to share with you the gift that is Conan…and you spit in our faces? Well, that won’t be happening again, Canada. Sure won’t. You’ve lived hundreds of years with the French in your country and you still haven’t come to realize the truth: the French were put on this earth to be made fun of. That’s their reason for being here. The French were MADE to be beaten. So come on, Canada. Laugh with everybody else.

Canada Condemns ‘Racist’ Conan O’Brien TV Show

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada’s government on Friday condemned a show by U.S. late-night television host Conan O’Brien that insulted people in French-speaking Quebec and seemed to suggest everyone in the province was homosexual.

Ottawa and the province of Ontario paid $760,000 to help O’Brien — who appears on the NBC television network — bring his show to Toronto for a week to boost the city’s profile after a deadly SARS outbreak last year.

“We want to disassociate ourselves from the comments which were broadcast last night because we do not support them in any way,” junior government minister Mauril Belanger told Parliament.

At one point in the show, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog — a hand puppet that is a regular on the show — said to a Quebecer: “You’re French, you’re obnoxious and you no speekay English.” It told another: “I can smell your crotch from here.”

O’Brien’s team were also shown replacing street signs in the province with those that read “Quebecqueer Street” and “Rue des Pussies.”

Nipples and Naked Men

I think yesterday can only be explained visually:

The news and the FCC are pretty much putting the ‘Janet’s Tit’ incident up there with the World Trade Center destruction, it’s on tv about every 2 minutes with a blur over the “sinful area” and everyone is of course TERRIBLY SHOCKED! I really didn’t think it was that big of a deal. A tit with a pastie (upon closer inspection I guess it’s some sort of gigantic piercing) is nothing new, but I suppose America just isn’t ready for it yet. It IS, however, OK to air commercials with cock biting dogs, farting horses, and men with kilts standing over air vents, I guess. Probably because they pay millions of dollars for each commercial. Lesson learned: if you want to show a tit on tv, have a multi billion dollar company sponsor it.Anyway, the coolest part about the game was this man:

…who apparently charged the field right after Janet’s tit. It wouldn’t have been nearly as cool if the Patriot didn’t feel the need to chase him and tackle him.Sadly, our hero was not shown on tv. But I’ll definitely be watching next year. Thank you CBS
