Who Knew?

A comment here from a woman who calls herself "Heidi" got me to thinking:
"[Y]es Canadians have tele[marketing calls] but I don't think it's as bad as the States..I hardly ever get calls in the evenings."
And here I thought Canadians lived outdoors, paddled their canoes along the rivers and lakes, or trudged in snowshoes through the forest, singing in bad French as they visited their beaver traps. And subsisted on boiled lichens.

And Heidi's telling me they have telephones?

Next she'll tell me that toilet paper and deodorant are available in France, and you can get a decent meal in England somewhere other than an Indian restaurant.

These last fantasies, of course, are truly absurd!
