1,500 Americans Invaded Canada Over The Weekend

You may not have realized this, but Canada was invaded over the weekend. Luckily it wasn't vikings and we were pillaged and plundered.

It seems that a group of 1,500 possibly drunken Americans entered the Canadian border near Ontario using inflatable pool toys.

Of course it wasn't intentional. If it was, I'm sure the Americans would have found a much cooler vehicle to invade us with.

This was part of an annual event called the Float Down where a huge group of people make their way from Port Huron to Chrysler Beach in Marysville.

Unfortunately for them, the strong winds sent them floating towards Ontario.

This would normally be a bit of a problem, since no one had any identification. But since Canadians are so cool, we decided not to make a big deal out of it. Something the Float Down organizers appreciated:

The invaders had to be bused back to the US, which took 6 hours and 19 buses. They don't seems too traumatized by their ordeal. They event started making T -Shirts to mark the occasion.
