Mike Ulmer of MapleLeafs.com is using his column this week to—theoretically—write about the wedding of coach Ron Wilson’s daughter. But Ulmer has been inspired by the wedding in unexpected ways. He’s explored everything from the joy of weddings (breakneck conga lines! and “bridesmaids, draped in exotic, impermeable fabrics”!) to the strange value differences between Canadians and Americans.
And on that topic, here’s some of what he’s come up with:
Americans like to call each other “Baby” when they’re in love. “That’s the thing about Americans. Not the only thing, just one thing.” (Yes. There are other things.)
Americans have ‘zero gravity lawn chairs’ and are adept at building tiny “invigorating” springs into your shoes. (Wow. So futuristic down there…!)
Americans allow you to use paper towels in public washrooms. Canadians, apparently, force you to use electric hand dryers.
