Tag & Release Canadians

Postby gyre » Fri Jan 19, 2007 12:24 pm

The Canadian government has long required all Canadians to wear a maple leaf flag at all times.
This is seen as a way to promote national identity and help the economy,
especially since flag production is most of the gross national product.

However, with the looming threat of Canadian terrorism things have changed.
Gordie bin Ladin's recent speech- Death to America, eh? has shocked and confused everyone.
Arrangements have been made between Ottawa and homeland security that make it mandatory now that all Canadians be near or wearing the maple leaf flag at all times.
Because burning man takes place on federal land, the Canadian Identity Act must be followed.

All participants are urged to help our Canadian friends in this process.
Any Canadian citizen failing to follow the new protocols must be tagged properly and may then be released.
It is permissible to give them food and drink before release.
It is not acceptable to harm them in the tagging process.

We wish to thank you in advance for your cooperation.

To answer the questions in order:

The ear.

The tongue.

A protective "cup", face mask, scarf, and boxing gloves.

Only after they have been tested for "Canadian Wasted" disease. It is not known if this condition is transmittable to non-Canadians; however, after finding a large number of non-Canadian college students apparently wasted along with some Canadian foriegn exchange students, we feel it is best not to take the chance.

There are tens of thousands of Canadian flag products and any are acceptable when visible.
Even carrying a flag is deemed acceptable, if your Canadian is willing to.
When approaching a Canadian, you may be caught off guard by a seeming excess of cheerfulness and courtesy, and forget to tag.
Protective equipment is usually unnecessary unless you are dealing with french Canadians.
If you are a supposed figure of authority, you may be made sport of by anyone from British Columbia.

It is unknown if french Canadians are willing to leave their natural environment to attend.

Knickers would qualify, of course, as long as they are visible.

If an art car is involved, you may wish to contact the medical tent or the dmv.
I believe there is already an organized event that involves eating Canadians.

I think Quebecois are wannabe Alaskans.

How do you get 100 drunken rowdy Canadians out of a bar?

Say "Excuse me, it's time to go home now."

They use Canadian money. They are subject to Canadian law. They demanded the rest of Canada go bilingual (but don't follow that themselves).

Still sore at Gen'l Wolfe. But, yeah, they're Canadians who can't quite admit it and can't quite deny it. Oh, and French, too. What a headache they must have.

...upon further research, it appears our neighbors to the North are more dangerous than they first appear;

Canada has at least four territorial disputes with its Arctic neighbors - two with the United States, one with Russia and one with Denmark - that could flare up with the receding ice.

Canada already accuses Denmark of launching invasions of its Arctic domain by sending ice-reinforced frigates, the HDMS Vaedderen in 2002 and HDMS Triton in 2003, to stake a Danish claim to Hans Island.

The tiny pimple of rock and ice, home to a seal colony that attracts the occasional hungry polar bear, is so small it does not even show on most maps. But neither side is backing down.

The Danes, who already own Greenland, say they own Hans Island as well. During both trips, Danish marines landed, raised the kingdom's flag and left plaques asserting their claim.


....and we think Bush is bad....geez!
