The rest of the world should be thankful that Canada exists.

We've invented many things, given the world many gifts, and if a zombie apocalypse ever breaks out, we have plenty of room to accommodate survivors.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things created in Canada that the world resents us for.

These things may have originated in this country, but they've slowly made their way to the US and other places. And now, it's all coming back to bite us in the ass. 

Hopefully the good outweighs the bad.

Now let's take a look at the BEST and WORST things Canadians are known for:

The Best Thing

Poutine 

Poutine is something the entire world needs to thank us for. Especially now that many other countries are creating their own poutine abominations.

This Canadian dish made of french fries, topped with cheese curds and gravy, first appeared in Quebec in the 1950s. 

These days poutine can be found pretty much anywhere, from the lowliest snack bar, to fast food chains, to fine dining establishments.

The Worst Thing

Justin Bieber

Years ago, some mad Canadian scientists began conducting secret illegal experiments. The goal was to create a new kind of artificial intelligence. 

Unfortunately the AI became self aware, but instead of killing all humans like Skynet, it came up with an even more devious plan. Releases the worlds worst music in order to make everyone want to kill themselves. 

So far the plan seems to have backfired.

The Best Thing

Kraft Dinner

When you take the first bite of that wonderfully delicious Kraft dinner it's hard not imagine yourself in bistro in Italy. Which is why you'll be surprised to know that Kraft Dinner was actually invented in Canada.

Okay so Kraft Dinner may not be the "gourmet" dish I was just bragging about, but it sure hits the spot when you're broke, or lazy, or in college.

The Worst Thing

Nickleback

Allow me to apologize to the world for Nickelback. 

And to those of you who just don't understand why the Nickelback hate is so strong in this country, it's because of one simple fact. 

There are many crappy bands out there, but the best part of a crappy band is that since they are so crappy, you never actually have to see or hear them. 

However Nickelback made a deal with satan,so no matter how bad their music is, it keeps getting played on the radio. Which means you're forced to keep listening to it over and over. Now that is true evil.

The Best Thing

The Majesty Of Nature

Sometimes the beauty of our country can be literally overwhelming to the senses. 

Every once in awhile you see a photo taken in Canada and it's hard to imagine that it wasn't photoshopped. 

In fact sometimes these places look so unreal you may not even beeliev they actually exist. But they do, and they are right here in our own backyard.

The Worst Thing

Justin Bieber

After the AI known as Justin Bieber's plan to kill all humans failed, he was re-purposed by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner for a pilot peace program. Unfortunately he became overwhelmed with a god complex and once again decided that the only way to save earth was to eradicate the human race. 

This time he came up with a far more elaborate plan to destroy the world by turning an entire country into a meteor and...

Oh wait. I accidentally clicked in the Ultron Wikipedia page. My bad.

The Best Thing

Hockey

Hockey may be Canada's greatest gift to the world.

Hockey originated around the 1800, in Windsor. The game was played by the boys of Canada’s first college, King’s College School

It was an adaptation of a game called Hurley, which they then called "Ice Hurley". 

Over the years Ice Hurley evolved into ice hockey.

The Worst Thing

Nickelback

On a serious note, people have done studies to figure out why the world hates Nickelback so much, and the results were truly fascinating.

People they they aren't genuine enough, or that they don't stand out from other similar bands.

But this is the best explanation:

The Best Thing

Maple Syrup

So far it really does seem like all the best parts of Canada are food related and the worst are things about this country are pretty much just Justin Bieber and Nickleback. 

But still, we couldn't keep maple syrup off the list. It's like ketchup for breakfast! 

Who would have ever though that one of the best flavors in the world would be: TREE.

The Worst Thing

Nickelback 

Ah-Ha!

You thought it was going to be Justin Bieber again, but alas... it's Nickelback.

As much as we hate Justin Bieber (mostly because he can't remember the lyrics to Despacito) we hate Nickleback a little bit more, so we really felt they needed to be on this list 3 times.
