But if Cruz truly wants to prove himself a real American, he should renounce the following Canadian things.

1. Justin Bieber

Curling - What is wrong with the greatest sport in history?

But if they wanted to do things right, they would figure out a way to combine the two. Maybe curl a butt of un-cut Canadian bacon or other small ham. I’m just sayin’....

Curling is great—as long as you don’t go trying to pass it off as a sport.

It’s more like tiddlywinks on ice.

Once he renounces his Canadian citizenship he needs to say NOTHING more... it will no longer be his business and if he did comment... he would be no better that jim carry or michael j fox or any other Canadian that meddles in our republic.

Right.

An excuse to drink beer, and an interesting way to kill some time? Yes.

A sport?
No.

But how could y'all forget this "stronger beer" video classic?

And BTW...as an anthem, "Star Spangled Banner," well..sucks..it's all but unsingable. "God Bless America" should be our national anthem. "O Canada" is a glorious tune..

Being of Canadian/American extraction myself, I think the “denouncements” are fine but I draw the line with denouncing the word “eh”, that did it for me eh?

Folks where I live wouldn’t be able to understand me if I no longer used eh, eh?

I happen to like Oh Canada as well. I do like the Star Spangled Banner more now than when I was younger. However, both are pretty good tunes.

Oh, Canada is a beautiful song. It specifically mentions God (something our anthem does not, at least not till the final verse).

Ugh. My wife grew up in England, and puts malt vinegar on her fries. Disgusting. Makes its completely not worth it to steal her fries after she does that.

Ham is from a pig’s leg. Canadian bacon is loin meat. Is it cured in a similar way though.

Curling is in the same category as bowling, darts and horseshoes. Not quite a sport but a great game none the less.

I met French Fries dipped in mayo in London..I asked for ketchup..the waitress laughed and told me their ketchup wasn’t as good as ours. LOL

Man, I dunno - Freedom Fries with brown gravy and cheese curd is just wrong. I don’t think you “renounce” poutine so much as run from it screaming. But Cruz doesn’t have to give up everything Canadian - I’m OK if he still watches Terence and Philip, eh.

I beg to differ with the waitress. I think they’ve got Heinz catsup and other brands. I remember having catsup with my fish and chips when I was over there. And my in-laws like catsup with their fish and chips just as much as I do. But my wife and many other Brits like malt vinegar.

A former business partner posited that a pastime vs. a sport can be separated thusly: a pastime is something you can do while smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer. Curling, like golf, would be in the pastime category.

Can I substitute a cigar for the cigarette?

If so, I’m with you 100%.

Maybe your final sentence contains the answer as to why she still puts malt vinegar on her fries, even after leaving England...

"Canadian Bacon" is false advertising. It's yummy, but very misleading.

Yes, she and other Brits like malt vinegar on fries. Some Brits have ketchup with their fries, and some like malt vinegar. What was the question?

Do people in other parts of the US not put vinegar on fries? When you get fries at a local spot place here (not McDonalds) they always have vinegar for the fries. I love it.

That makes me want to visit "Beansies".

My wife is the first person I’ve known who puts malt vinegar on fries. I’m 63, and she’s the first. That doesn’t mean that other people I know haven’t been using malt vinegar, it just means if they have, they’ve been very discreet about it. Incidentally, I’ve seen a lot of people eat French fries in my lifetime.
