    Canada's plan to Rezone the States...

    I came across a funny website in my daily lunch hour Internet ramblings... www.standonguard.com. The cartography section is particularly funny. Here is the plan for once Canada captures the U.S.



    Legend For Easy Interpretation of our Redesigned USA

    Under Canadian World Domination we find states to be illogical and prefer provinces. The following zones have been renamed to suit Canuck aims.

    ZONE I: Laporte Memorial Park (territory) "LMP"

    ZONE II: Land Du Beaver (territory) "LDB"

    ZONE III: Molson (province)

    ZONE IV: Acadia (province)

    ZONE V: Kraftland (province)

    ZONE VI: Degrassi Jr. Wasteland (province) "DJW"

    ZONE VII: Dief The Chief (province) "DTC"

    HORTON BAY: This is our man-made reservoir -- we have flooded several former American states to make this majestic watery area. There was no purpose, just cruelty.

    ZONE VIII: Littlest-Hobo-Land (province)

    ZONE IX: Bombardier (province)

    ZONE X: The Hip (province)

    ZONE XI: The Trudeau Compound -- this is our man-made penal colony. Some have suggested that the United States of America be flooded with nuclear radiation and used for soil experimentation instead of wasting time with colonization attempts.

    ZONE XII: Johnny LaRue Provincial Park -- Recently added in honour of Canada's Nunavut, this zone is mostly lake area. Refugees from the flooding of Horton Bay will be invited to build houseboats from driftwood and learn to enjoy living in this scenic area.

    BTurk and Prudence.. you are now in the Land Du Beaver!
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Maybe he's just embarrassed about being behind Prudence 100%..

    A large portion of the area identified as Area X - The Hip is part of the Republic de Madawaska. (seriously)

    Logically, I would have made Zone X Acadia... but hey, if they want it to be The Hip, that's cool.

    I just saw The Hip last night for the first time by the way. Probably one of the best live bands I've ever seen. Awesome show

    Nerudite,

    seems like your family must have deep seated canadian roots that you don't know about. hockey, the hip. next thing you know you will be making nanaimo bars and butter tarts and humming guess who songs.

    a couple of hip show memories

    1) they opened for depeche mode in 1988 or 89 on teh music for the masses tour at the old exhibition stadium. nobody knew who they were or what they were doing opening for DM.

    2) Saw them at ontario place. gord downie, took off his boots and used them like puppets to sing with. and we all thought we were drunk and messed up.

    3) Saw them in toledo ohio at this bar downtown. the show started early (8:00) and was done by 10. The theatre / bar was so full of beer cans that they were almost knee deep. The bar kicked everyone out onto teh street and it took about 3 hours to get a cab, as it was in an area that cabbies refused to go because it was a bad neighbourhood.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....
