Canada-US Love-Hate Relationship

I've been curious about this phenomenon for a long time, so I've been searching on the net for answers to explain it. Haven't found much yet, but I did run across a really funny joke that sorta sums up a lot of Canuckistanis' feelings on the issue. Behold:
"How many Americans does it take to screw in a lightbulb? One. But he just stands there with his arm in the air and waits for the world to revolve around him."
I don't care, but think that's funny. Now pardon me while I duck for cover.

Q: How many Canadians does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: Twelve. Four to form a Parliamentary study committee to decide how to solve the problem; one Francophone to complain that this joke wasn’t translated into French; one Native Canadian to protest that the interests of Native Canadians have been overlooked; one woman from the National Action Committee On the Status Of Women to say that women have been under-represented in the process; one to go over the border to the Niagara Falls Factory Outlet Mall and buy a new bulb and not pay duty on it on the way back; one to actually screw it in; one to collect taxes on the whole procedure so the government can afford it; one to buy a case of Molson for everybody to drink; and one to drop the puck.

Peace! {:-)

As long as the person sent over the border is riding a pickup truck, I think you've got it. Maybe he can pick up some regular light bulbs while he's there.
