Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas made headlines Monday after he indicated that he would renounce his Canadian citizenship.
Nothing against Canada, but Im an American by birth and as a U.S. senator, I believe I should be only an American, Cruz said in a statement.
But if Cruz truly wants to prove himself a real American, he should renounce the following Canadian things.
1. Justin Bieber

LOL! (but I thought it was spelled “twonie”)
They missed William. . . .Shatner.
They also missed five American quarts in one Canadian gallon.
Does he know anything about the canadian bacon conspiracy?
As a French-Canadian-American let me just say Canadian bacon is awesome....and so is curling.
Thanks for posting! The graphics in the article are great and on point.
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’....
Nothing wrong with a good ham.
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.
Holy skoke(d) bacon, Batman ... a blast from the past.
High on my list would be the Alberta custom of serving a good Rib Eye steak with spegetti
Hell, EVERYONE should renounce Justin Bieber...
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.
An excuse to drink beer, and an interesting way to kill some time? Yes.
Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.
I think most of the admonitions were said with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
And anyway he missed gravy on French fries and poutine.
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.
How about mayo with french fries?
It’s still just thin sliced ham!!!
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 can’t tell the difference!!!!
I agree—I curled in a league one year.
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.
I’ve come to prefer bocce, and see my previous.
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?
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.
