I’ve never considered myself particularly patriotic. But as a recent pseudo-migrant to Canada, I’ve developed an uncanny pride in the U.S. It sort of snuck up on me, eliciting surprisingly anti-Canadian statements like “Yeah, well, Canada spawned Justin Bieber. Chew on that.” (Using phrases like “chew on that” has also evidently snuck up on me.)
Regardless, in response to the recent United States of Shame, I present to you the United States of Awesome, courtesy of blogger Ilya Garner. Lamenting your bad driving label, Massachusetts? Well at least you’re (most likely) college-educated.
Take that, Canada. It’ll teach you for making fun of my flat vowel sounds.
