2. Crispy Crunch and Coffee Crisp

Not sold in the USA


3. Baseball Is Canadian

How is this not American?


4. Hockey Is Canadian

5. Basketball is Canadian

It was invented by James Naismith in 1891


6. Apple Pie

7. Mr. Dress-Up beats Mr. Rogers

Mr Dress-Up dressed up, that made sense for a kid. But who knows what the hell Mr. Rogers was up to.


8. Tim Hortons Beats Dunkin donuts

9. We invented ski doos, jet skis, zippers, insulin, telephones and short wave radio
