Dual Citizenship

I don't normally watch the American programme, How I Met Your Mother, but had to watch last night's episode when I heard that my beloved Canadian coffee joint, Tim Hortons, was featured in it. It's strange to watch a half hour sitcom, that's actually only 21 minutes, and features awful canned laughter.

Anyway, the episode features cliched jokes at the expense of Canada (funny-coloured money, hockey, weird Canadian accents, and of course, Tim Hortons!) Usual American-style hilarity ensues.

As a Canadian overseas, I too have been known to get tipsy and sing, "Oh, Canada" as the tears well up.
