An American Travelling Abroad

An American travelling abroad was accosted by someone unimpressed with her homeland:
“You Americans killed off the natives of your country, you stole half of Mexico, you pillaged the rest of the world, and now I’ve heard you want to take over half of Canada if Quebec splits away from that country! Have you no shame at all? Haven’t you made enough of a mess already?”

The American quickly shook her head and said, “No, no, no, you’ve got it all wrong. Are you joking – with our terrible health care system, with our education system in disarray, with our entire social fabric torn apart, we aren’t looking for new territory. We’re just waiting for Ontario to annex us!”
