Canada and the U.S. have been together for a loooong time.
We’ve laughed, cried — gone to war a couple times (no biggie) — but we wouldn’t change each other for the world. Well, not really, anyway. We’ve been through so much for so long, that you could say our two countries are starting to act like an old married couple. Don’t believe us? Here’s the proof:

We have a tendency to be just a wee bit competitive:

After the marriage, America went and let herself go:
I can't wait to celebrate a day where I do nothing but get fat and watch a lot of football. God bless America
