Supplemental Karmic Post for America: A Canadian Horror Story

Once upon a time in Canada (which is a whole separate country from America), there were no cute shoes to be found in any of the stores and all the people had to wear ugly stupid shoes. Da-Da-Dum!

Take that Margaret Atwood!


  1. Biting! Inciteful! Crystalizing! But who would read a story set in Winnipeg? It has to be set in America. Even movies filmed in Vancouver and Toronto are set in the U.S. I don't think the subject is too mature for 16 and 17-year-olds. Heck, a lot of kids younger than that are exposed to life-threatening situations. Waiting for the next post.


  2. I would read a story set in Winnipeg! That said, I concede you have a point. Do you know that I couldn't find a single instance of The Handmaid's Tale being banned in Canada? Half of my brain (probably the crazy half) is going: "of course not! They're over there safe in Canada while Atwood's America is hell on earth." The other half of my brain is going, "Or possibly, they are just more mature or laid back or trusting of their kids to know the difference between books and reality than we are."

    Still, I'm going to vibe Canada just to be safe.

  3. In Canada you can swear on prime time tv and have kids (played by actual kids) giving each other BJs on Degrassi. You can also purchase Kinder Eggs. But not to worry! We have elected our very own right wing idiot of a Prime Minister! Canada is now more conservative than America.

  4. Eve! What up, girlfriend?

    My sincere condolences on the whole Prime Minister thing. After surviving 8 years of W, I really wouldn't wish it on anyone, Canada included. I'll watch for your inevitable invasion of a third world country.
