    Well since I have good friends from all four catagories, I'd say it's accurate.

    it's funny cuz it's true.
    but...
    there needs to be a section about(pronounced 'a-boat') Canadian music!
    living a few miles from Mexico, my jaw drops every time someone's actually heard of ' The Tragically Hip '
    if they've heard of ' The Waltons ' then i'm buying the next round of labatts. (that is..when we get back home and can get such a thing!)
    if they can actually spell Saskatchewan then, we're putting our backs together and fighting our way outta this desert wasteland!

    i once had a sticker on my car that read. ' lik my traktar '
    i was going to transfer it to the fj40 but i realized, no one would get it..

    sigh.. SCTV is the reason no one understands my sense of humor!

    Thought it was a laugh myself, though I was a bit concerned that some folk may be a bit browned off by it. As you realise most Aussies don't take them self too seriously, good to see a lot of others are the same.cheers.
