Yes, but do you know how many popular American chains have never ventured into Canada?

Doesn’t that imply that Canadians have a better chance to avoid obesity?

Well, what if I told you that we already have McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Subway, Papa John's, Domino's, KFC, Little Caesar's, Perkin's, Denny's, Starbucks, and Ruth's Chris, among others?

And there are our own homegrown chains: have you ever eaten at Tim Hortons, Harvey's, Mr. Sub, Pizza Pizza, Pizza 73, Panago Pizza, Mr. Sub, Swiss Chalet, Earl's, The Keg, or Hy's, among others?

Do you think that, with all these choices, we have a better chance to avoid obesity?

(Hey, let's keep this lighthearted, shall we? )

Doesn't Canada also offer a lower chance of dying by gun violence?

Hell, why did I mention Mr. Sub twice? Could it be because I prefer Mr. Sub to Subway?

Is Mr Sub that good? You ever have a Jersey Mike’s sub?

Do you think maybe we could take our Yellow Submarine to visit the Octopus's Garden?

Aren't there a lot of examples of rhymes that don't exactly fit, in rock and pop music?

Like “Take the Money and Run”? How did Steve Miller think “hassle” rhymes with “El Paso”?

Are you perhaps thinking of the sort of bed known as a "four-poster?"

Do halos hang, or do they just hover?

In your case, isn't your halo held up by your horns?


edspellman, I completely forgot about that song. Guess I have heard that term.
