I think Canadians sometimes run the risk of forgetting that they exist as an independent (ish) nation solely due to the good graces of the United States, and nothing else. Luckily, I’m not alone in this thinking, and one likeminded Twitter maestro gave a masterclass in putting uppity Canadians in their place.
Twitter user Three Year Letterman documented his exchange with Amir Attaran, a persnickety butt wart of a professor, who took to social media to scold a flight attendant for not wearing a mask while giving an announcement on a Canada-America flight. k is contained within two posts: The actual exchange, plus Mr. Letterman’s summary (starting above). They are both excellent, and I will be showing you all of them.
This made Amir BIG mad.
PRIME MINISTER POUTINE.
The SEC championship thing could not possibly be less relevant, and yet WHAT a burn.
Anyway, Amir’s insecurity about his nation continued to mount, so he brought out the big… gun, singular, because this is the only brag they have.
Someone at SNL should hire this guy. He’s the only person who might be able to save them before it’s too late. Or, hell, send him to the Babylon Bee. Where they APPRECIATE good humor.
But then, after Amir’s snobbish attempts to rebuff these sick ass burns, Mr. Letterman went in with the kill shot.
RIP in peace, Amir. Take the L. You earned it.
