But technically he has dual Canadian and American citizenship.. So he is half dumb... Half smart. y:-?

Hmmm...Jim Carrey may be a genius. He's left the frozen wasteland that is Canada to live in a far nicer place. y**==

Dear 800 pound elephant,

Dual citizenship just doesn't make sense and I'm sorry that the USA has (recently) allowed this perversion. The people I know who have dual citizenship (usually Canadian + a banana-republic) travel with their Canadian passport but keep their banana-republic citizenship out of nostalgia. I know one man who has Canadian and Uzbek citizenship; he travels with his Canadian passport but uses his gangster-republic passport when in Eastern Europe so that he isn't seen as ''kidnappable'' material.

As for Jim Carrey, I don't know which of his two passports he would consider from a banana-republic.

Ahh.. United States, India, China, Canada, Mexico, etc... What's the difference anyway? We are just a melting pot of misfits.. Wacky people.

Dear 801 pound elephant,

Canabanana citizenship...I like it! I don't think I can use it in polite company, though. Former citizens of banana republics do not recognize their native land as a bananaland. For example, I told a Columbian friend of mine who got her Canadian citizenship that she could chuck out her worthless Columbian passport. She became very angry and told me, ''I will be Columbian until I die!'' ''Yeah,'' I thought, ''had you stayed in Columbia you'd already be dead.''

I understand patriotism when it involves a great country - the USA, Switzerland, Israel- but patriotism towards a bad country is beyond my comprehension.

Hmm.. Rather strange if you ask me.. But she would rather live in Canada and is loyal to Columbia. y:-?

Canada is actually an island just off Fiji. (Fiji shares a common border with Norway and Zimbabwe.)

It won't be funny if you're American because the Talking to Americans series is making fun of you. You have to be Canadian to find this stuff funny. It really gets hilarious when Rick Mercer interviews Harvard students because they are just as ignorant as the average-guy-on-the-street Americans.

I, of course, would like to divorce myself from all of this politically-incorrect humor. This stuff is for PaulSacramento and his ilk.

I love you guys, my American brothers-and-sisters in the Faith. I thank God for you every day. I love America and have often said so on this Forum.

US adults must be a ignorant bunch, especially university students and their professors. And a couple of state Governors here didn't fare any better:
