In this show, comedian Rick Mercer pokes fun at the great Canadian irritation that while Canadians know so much about the United States, Americans on the other hand, know next to nothing about Canada. In response, Rick Mercer conducts interviews in which he asks Americans, ranging from ordinary citizens to politicians, their opinion about patently ridiculous statements about Canada and records their unquestioningly ignorant responses.Written by

Rick Mercer from "This Hour has 22 Minutes" hosts a one hour special interviewing Americans asking them about fake Canadian issues. For example: the Canadian hour only lasts 22 minutes (an obvious reference to Rick's show), why Canada has a Navy even though it doesn't border the sea, building the chunnel to China, Saskatchewan rebellion from Russia, and deporting senior citizens on iceburgs.
The results make any Canadian watching this speachless. Americans believe this trash so easily! The wooly rhino hunt in Toronto?! That's like saying the Stegasaurus hunt in West Virginia. Rick Mercer even has a Govenor (forget which state) congratulate Canada on preserving it's national igloo! *facepalm* Not even George W. Bush is safe. Watch in glee (or in horror) as he thanks Prime Minister Jean Poutine for backing up his nomination.
Overall: The show is hilarious, if not disturbing. Everyone should watch this.
