Have you seen that show where they survey Americans about Canada, with horribly stupid q's like- 'In Canada, what is the proper state's name: Althalpha, or Palthatpha?' One kid on the show killed me giggleing-his parents were stumped, and he said 'Hey, Canada has Provinces, Not States!' One person even thought the Prime Minister's Name Was 'Ciline Dion'... What a Show! :Pinkbounc

yep, it was Rick Mercer's "Talking to Americans". Rick Mercer is the guy on This Hour has 22 minutes. I think "Talking to Americans" was just a TV special and isn't a weekly thing. Other funny things I remember from that show were Canada making the stapler legal, a polar bear hunt in Toronto, congratulations on the Peter Mans Bridge, and global warming melting some national igloo...

Was it that show or 22minutes that had them asking then presidential candidate Bush about remarks from Canadian Prime Minister Jean Poutine?

I think "Talking To Americans" started off as a 22 Minutes sketch that took off.

Kungaloosh!

It was the special "Talking to Americans" that had the bit about Jean Poutine! It was hilarious - it's just unbelievable what some Americans think of us. I also like Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" proving some Americans can be just as ignorant about their own history and country as they are about ours.
