Don't Want to be a Canadian Idiot...

Lovely. I have to admit that absolutely everything I know about Canada I learned from watching "Strange Brew" over and over in my youth.

I only recently discovered that West-coast Canadians pronounce the word which Americans pronounce "a-bout" as "a-boot," whereas East-coast Canadians pronounce it "a-boat." Obviously, I'm into the finer and more subtle points of the culture now...

Seriously, though -- thanks to the internet, I have discovered a strong affinity with Canadian poets and their poetics, which I might not have otherwise known about.
