”Canada is a sweet country. It is like your retarded cousin you see at Thanksgiving and sort of pat him on the head. You know, he’s nice but you don’t take him seriously. That’s Canada.”– Tucker Carlson
This is the sort of thing us hypersensitive Canadians are supposed to get outraged about, but I think I’ll be offended on behalf of intellectually challenged people instead. I’m oddly OK with people like Tucker Carlson being annoyed with my country.
I’m not American or Canadian and, as such, unfamiliar with Carlson. So, two questions, prompted by the photo of him in the article you linked to:
1) What’s with the dorky bow-tie?
2) Why does anybody take him seriously? (See 1.)
1) Ummm … he wishes it were the 19th century again?
2) Do they?
Yeah, I might need help from some Americans here.
