Sharideth is an internet friend who writes a witty (and deliciously sarcastic) blog about men. Or is it about women? It’s a blog about women, for men. Written by a woman. And it’s fantastic. I have guest posted a couple of times (read the most recent one here) and here she is gracing the likes of mine. Very exciting day, internets! Sharideth plays a mean game of pool (so I hear) and has two kids (so I hear) and a husband with a beard (I’ve seen pictures).
Sharideth prefaced her “TTMPTADBSTAA post with “prepare to be fully offended” so you know it’s going to be good. Especially if you like Canada.
Without further ado….

something sharideth thinks is awesome, but other people think is dumb: Canada
when i was brainstorming what thing in particular i find awesome that most people think is dumb, i had to go to the authority. my husband. there are just so many, i couldn’t narrow it down. my whole world revolves around things other people think are dumb.
but then we hit on gold.
you heard me.
Craig, my husband, saw a documentary on how scientists are mapping the human genome. they’ve found that chimpanzees and humans are only separated by a couple of chromosomes, but that humans and Canadians are separated by like five or six.
jagged little pill to swallow? for reals.
still, i completely heart Canada. my family and i went to BC three to four times a year when i was growing up. their attempt at castles is adorable. almost makes up for Nickleback.
but they did give us Rush. who doesn’t love Rush? and let me just say for the record, Canadian pop music has brought me no end of joy. it is so incredibly terrible, you can’t help but embrace it. exhibit a:
a mime? really? amazing.
Canada is like America’s kid brother. it’s okay for us to pick on him, but we’ll totally noogie anyone else who tries.
have i mentioned Canada is gorgeous? well, it is. it has that hot-chick-who-gets-left-home-on-prom-night thing going on. type in Quebec City in Google images sometime. you’ll want to move there.
did i just infer in the last two paragraphs that Canada is transgendered? my apologies.
Canada also gives us plenty of cold air. which is only fair since we give them all the hot air they can stomach. it’s a real prince among countries. but not Prince William. more like Prince Harry. only without the questionable paternity.
i think Canada is awesome. i really do. i don’t care if they gave us Justin Beiber. we gave them Miley Cyrus. fair’s fair. they also give us some of the nicest people i’ve ever met and have a lock on hospitality. i’ll have words with anyone who bashes on Canada.
except my husband. he still thinks Canada is dumb. but i can’t afford marriage therapy, so…
how do you feel about Canada, eh? see what i did there?
what about Canada do you think is awesome? what do you think is dumb?
