I was reading the other day about the Athabasca oil sands in Alberta, Canada. Yup, Canada has oil. Oil that, shock and surprise, we’d like to have. And while they’re mining the oil and there’s a whole industry around it, I don’t think it’s really shown up on the radar of the average American yet.
But when it does, Canada is going to be like your buddy’s tomboy sister who grew up to be hot.
“Damn, who’s that?”
“Canada? The same Canada that we used to make fun of the way she talked and then we’d stick her Barbie dolls in her pants to gross her out?”
“Yep, same one. She’s got oil money now.”
“Damn, she is looking good! Hey, Canada, you remember me? It’s America!”
And Canada will say, “Oh, heeeelll no… After all those jokes and pranks you pulled in me?”
“Oh, come on Canada. You can’t say we weren’t supportive. For like 10 years we listened to Shania Twain. That has to count for something.”
