"Congratulations, Canada, for Allowing Dogs as House Pets"

Rick Mercer, CBC Television

In 1992, Canadian comedian Rick Mercer created a show called "This Hour has 22 Minutes," with a routine segment "Talking to Americans." This video clip is a montage of some of Mercer's funniest moments with Americans, in which they congratulate Canadians for everything from saving their National Igloo to switching to a 24-hour clock. Presidential candidate George W. Bush expresses his gratitude to the non-existent Canadian Prime Minister "Jean Poutine," and Iowa governor Tom Vilsack congratulates them on their new clocks. Absolutely hilarious.
