Talking OT: How Canada got its name...

There were three explorers, hiking through what is now known as Canada.

You know," said one of the explorers, "we should name this place we're hiking through."

"I know," said the second explorer. "We'll each pick a letter and then make a name out of that."

Okay," said the third, "I'll go first. C, eh."

"N, eh."

"D, eh."

And that's how they named Canada...


*BA-DUM BUMP!*

I thought Canaduh got it's name from the same place Floriduh did. Guess I'm wrong.

Northern humor...

BTW, Michigan is one of the few places in the US (outside of Alaska) where you can go south to get to Canada...
