    He's the second most. Very close. From the same neighborhood though.

    Leonard Cohen is amazing. So is Glenn Gould.

    All the jokes aside, there are worse things than being Canadian. All the Canadians I've met have been stand up folks that don't give two shits about the politics of it all. If I had to be from Canada, I'd be from Alberta (because I'm Texan).

    4) Someone from Montreal
    5) Correct!
    6) Large coffee at Horton's with two cream and two sugar

    "Bad ice?" As in "can't go ice fishing?" (Around here, that's construction season, though nowadays construction is year-round, so I guess it should be "heavier construction season.")
