Two men are out just fishing quietly and drinking beer.

Almost silently, so as not to scare the fish, Bob says,
'I think I'm gonna divorce my wife...... she hasn't spoken to me in over 2 months.'
Charles continues slowly sipping his beer, then thoughtfully says,....:
'You better think it over, Bob - Women like that are hard to find.'


BUT MOST IMPORTANT !

The handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands with mitts on.

Oh yeah... And our elections only take one day.

OOOoohhhhh.... Canada !!
