In honor of Canada Day, since this relies on that old stereotype quite a bit.

"That's Amore"

When the moon hits your eye, Like a big pizza pie, That’s amore.

When an eel bites your hand, And that's not what you planned, That’s a moray.

When our habits are strange, And our customs deranged, That’s our mores.

When your horse munches straw, And the bales total four, That’s some more hay.

When Othello's poor wife, Becomes stabbed with a knife, That’s a Moor, eh?

When a Japanese knight Uses his sword in a fight, That’s Samurai.

When your sheep go to graze In a damp marshy place, That’s a moor, eh?

When your boat comes home fine, And you tie up her line, That’s a moor, eh?

When you ace your last tests, Like you did all the rest, That’s some more "A"s!

When on Mt. Cook you see, An aborigine, That’s a Maori.

Alley Oop's homeland has, A space gun with pizzazz, That’s a Moo ray...

A comedian ham, With the name Amsterdam, That’s a Morey.

When your chocolate graham, Is so full and so crammed, That smore, eh.

When you've had quite enough, Of this dumb rhyming stuff, That’s "No more!", eh?

I love that! My husband says "eh" a lot    He immigrated from England to Canada when he was 13 so he has a slight English accent with the "eh" on his sentences ~ hehe!! He's lived in the states 3 1/2 years now and people ask him about the way he talks all the time.

Here is a good natured tribute to Cdn/US stereotypes. The Canuck listens politely, then adopts the "jersey over the face" hockey fight technique. I of course, have never reverted to such a tactic

Thanks Maryellen.
once again I'm up late,cause the thunder outside is so loud!!!!!

I did manage to get a few new fans of my air guitar thing I do at this club.
The girls there love it,the guys however could careless.

They also love what I call my Buggles Glasses,they are cool as all get out,cause they blink this pinkish purple color of light in many different blinks,slow,fast & faster,bad thing is they can freak your eyes out after a while wearing them.

Anyway you all have a fun hump day.

Love Always

Pavel

Mebbe they just want to be sure, Paul, that while you're at work, you always feel pretty under your clothes.  'Because you're worth it!  I kid.
