Identity Crisis: SNL and the Canadians

Last night/this morning, Saturday Night Live had its usual mixed performance.  One of the sketches was aboot a nice celebrity talkshow set in Canada, eh?  Not only was it the usual "hey, let's have another talk show since we cannot imagine many other settings for sketch" but it also decided to play upon the "Canadians are nice, eh" stereotype.  Nice combo.

So, as someone who has lived here for more than nine years, all I can think is: the roads don't close due to snow (a major repeating plot point/joke in the sketch) all that often.  So, I guess am starting to shift my identity, eh.  Those hosers couldn't even get the effects of snow right up here, for goodness sake.
