Ah, the unintentional hilarity -- Part Duh.


Blogging Tory Alberta Ardvark -- with not a trace of irony -- mocks the intellectual state of affairs of other Canadians:

CDN High school students don't know our national anthem

This is messed up:

When it comes to Canada's national anthem, only 67 per cent of Canadian high school students know the words — and even fewer can hum along, suggests a survey done by the University of Victoria.

Here'a s thought, Ards. As long as you're a member of Canada's Blogging Tories -- a collection of witless, yammering imbeciles of whom a disturbing percentage believe wholeheartedly and unabashedly in an invisible sky monster, a recently-created Earth, that biological evolution is an evil liberal plot and that Ann Coulter is an awesomely deep thinker -- you really don't have the moral high ground to make fun of other peoples' intellectual achievements.

I'm just sayin'.

I'm well past high school, but I couldn't come up with all the words to the anthem (although I could certainly hum along). I just don't think that the anthem is important, nor are the flag or the national animal or sport.
I'm a Canadian Citizen, not a citizen of the anthem or the flag or anything else. Those are distractions, representations. I'm proud of Canada (mostly), not of any of those other things.

Then clearly high school students aren't watching enough pro sports. Catch a full season of NHL hockey or Blue Jays baseball, and you'll get the hang of it pretty quickly.

ardvark's got a link to a real rib tickler on his twitter page. I think the guy likes red ants or something.

Well, yes. Only communists and socialists listen to folk music.

So he's saying there are lots of kids who know the words but not the melody? lol. Um, no.

I know the words: "Uh-oh, Canada, our home's on Native land..."

The other third, in fact, think they know the words and melody just fine: Oh say can you see...

Another minority, comprised of diehard CPC supporters, know the words to Die Fahne Hoch...they need to sing it loud every time they hail their Leader...

They probably mean that 67% of them don't know the second or third verses.

The other 33% didn't know there WERE second or third verses.
