A Tale of International Brotherhood, Stilts and Electrical Tape Pants

I witnessed a heartwarming scene here in Vancouver yesterday. Two exuberant young Canucks were parading through the streets with a giant Canadian flag in preparation for the first Team Canada hockey game an hour later.


Alas, nothing gold can stay. Before long our intrepid heroes were confronted by the Goliath to the South, their nemesis Uncle Sam himself! Just look at Uncle Sam's demeanor - he don't play. Some bad stuff was going to go down, my friends.


However, people began gathering around and taking pictures of these national symbols together. And instead of a Battle Royale, we got smiles and poses. Uncle Sam is even helping to hold up the Canadian flag. No one who witnessed this display of peace and brotherhood left unchanged.


Pussies.

Uncle Sam's gotta ditch the skinny jeans. His legs are wonking out.

Yeah, and while Sam was holding up the maple leaf the Canuck stole his wallet and used it to buy cheese fries for the figure skating team.

This is why having a camera with you at all times is a must. That is awesome.

Who knew Uncle Sam was so tall?!?

Dr Zibbs said...

That Uncle Sam must have a hard time getting around with those legs. Kind of sad.

Uncle Sam wants YOU to give him free health insurance.
