True. And maple syrup does indeed have a strong connection to Canada.
*ponders if Canada actually dripped syrup on dog's head when she wasn't looking*
One of my favorite rants about Canada (there is actually more than one!) was when Denis Leary said "You can hear them, way up in northern New York, you can hear them at night. They're up there sharpening their skates so they can come down and take our cheese!"
We can't figure out how he got something on his head that's now dried but felt like it must have been sticky at one point. S.O. actually smelled said head today (!—swears it couldn't be avoided) and claimed it was maple syrup-scented.
I verified the claim.
We still can't figure out what the hell he got smeared on his head—or how.
