The head of our circulation department, who prefers to remain unnamed, alerts me that we’re receiving regular visits from our neighbors to the north.

SFWILLIE’S BLOG salutes you.

You guys have such a great national anthem. People in your country seem to think it’s kind of corny, but you’re still happy to sing it at the drop of a hat.

We in the United States envy you. Our national anthem is unsingable.

It’s one of Pud’s rants:

“How can we get along without a singable national anthem? It’s like, we don’t even HAVE a national anthem unless someone’s there to perform it for us.

“Our legislators are aware of this problem and refuse to do anything about it. Ask any congressperson or senator to sing it and the can’t, the range is too great. So we pretend that we have a national anthem.

“In the scene at Rick’s where the Germans and French are competitively singing their respective anthems, can you imagine Americans chiming in with theirs? Come on …

“So we don’t have an anthem and our lawmakers all look the other way. That’s what they’re best at.

“Forget about universal healthcare as good as Canada’s, we can’t even get as good a national anthem.”
