Crap, I'm not fluent in either =/
Maybe if I disguise myself as a maple leaf...

No. You have to be able to sort of speak both those languages for some of the government jobs, but other than that I'm not sure if they even care if you can speak either of them.

For the most part you have to speak at least one of them to get into Canada. More immigrants speak English than French, which is why Quebec whines about not getting their 1/3 share of the recently landed. They also whine that after an immigrant does live in Quebec for a while, he or she is likely to move to Ontario anyway.

Whiney French Canadian bastards.

I certainly wouldn't call myself "passionate", but I get a craving every once in a while for something of the maple variety.

I won't lie to you guys: I was never a big fan of maple flavoured things. I am gay for maple flavoured cookies, sometimes, but I don't like maple syrup. Or, you know, maple fudge. Is that what it's called? Actually, nevermind, maple flavoured stuff is end boss.
So are Gorillaz.
I've beena ware of the Feel Good Inc. single but didn't listen to it until just recently. Holy fuckjerk, this is the perfect song.
I can't wait for the new CD.
Demon Days, cunts.

Oh, and I don't live on the beach, mithril.

The singer for the Gorillaz is 2D, who is also the lead singer for Blur.

I really enjoy The Gorillaz and am aniticipating their cd too.
