Rob Ford is a likely candidate for being the bastard offspring of Jim Lahey and Randy.

A Texan Canuck shutting down the US?

... now I understand why he was exported...

Texan-Ted and Toronto-Rob should get their own category - Herostratically famous Canadians.

I don't know about famous Canadians, but I just saw a bus load of middle aged Canadian women get dropped of at my local supermarket. They come by the busload from Atlantic Canada to shop in my town. They don't just go to the mall but they also go to WalMart and the supermarket. And they always leave the store a disaster.

From now until Christmas its busload after busload. I get that there is no Target or Khols in PEI or New Brunswick, but WTF.

I can't believe Canada let America beat them to the first crack smoking mayor.

Marion Barry is so proud of that fat bastard from Toronto.

Hey you Hosers. Your most famous Canadian is LORD STANLEY and we have his cup down here bitches.

I believe I misspelled Danielle Lawrie's last name in a previous post. Although she played for the U of W she's from Vancouver B.C. Her brother, whose name escapes me, plays for the Toronto Blue Jays, but has had a far lesser impact in his respective league. She pitched to some big- leaguers here in an exhibition and owned them.

Isn't putting "famous" and "cross country skier" together an oxymoron?
