Americans: We should paint the White House black and still call it the White House. That way all the other countries would be like "Hey, that house isn't white, why is it called the White House?", and then we can all have some good laughs as our economy fails, amirite?

Rhode Island's full name is the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Rhode Island is techinocally the state's biggest Island, Aquidneck Island, and the rest is Providence Plantations but people refer to it as Rhode Island for short. Yeah yeah its small, but its beautiful and an easy place to win a HS state championship title. Plus we got one of the nations worst state economies :D

It's definitely one of those brown popsicles that look like they should taste like chocolate but end up tasting like vanilla, and your all "aww what the hell" but then you realize its all ok because the popsicle stand has a buy one get one free deal, so you get another "not-Canadian" chocolate popsicle with chocolate filling and then its all better. your still a little peeved that this pseudo-chocolate popsicle still exists, but your too busy enjoying the real chocolate Popsicle in your hand to care.

It's basically just saying "hey, look a funny joke" to cover up the failing economy. But then there's the underlying message of black Obama being the reason for the failing economy, which I don't think was intended, but who knows?

it was black at one point... When we burned it!! fuck yeah canada

@Cpt_McMuffin I believe that was the British.

Most textbooks say it was the British because Canada was not an independent country until 1867 and therefore still part of Britain's Dominion, so while it technically was the British simply because of the matter of independence and namesake, it was really the Canadians who burned it when retaliating after the Americans torched York (modern day Toronto)

@Cpt_McMuffin I believe that was the British.

well canada was a british colony at that point but we were still the ones to torch washington

@flynSpaghettiMonster well canada was a british colony at that point but we were still the ones to torch washington

Okay, I suppose that makes sense, I just always heard people say "British." The only mention of Canada I ever hear about during that time period was the USA's epic fail invasion.

The war of 1812, I'm pretty sure anways

@LovelyGreen The war of 1812, I'm pretty sure anways

You sure? I think (s)he may have been referring to the invasion during the Revolution where we sent up like 5,000 soldiers and it turned out we were gonna need like 20,000, and we just spent a couple years dicking around up north, pillaging some cities and when it came time to take the city we actually wanted we tried, lost like 40% of our army we sent up there, and ran back to the US.

And to anyone wondering why I'm using first/fourth person, yes, I WAS in the revolutionary war.

@MartellusBoss Yeah but they burned the White House in the War of 1812, not the Revolution.

But they said "epic fail invasion," so i supposed they were referring to a US fail invasion.

@yay_im_wrong But they said "epic fail invasion," so i supposed they were referring to a US fail invasion.

1. The US tried and failed to invade Canada during the war of 1812 too.
2. I applaud your use of context clues but if you would continue to read the thread you would see that the whole chain started because spaghetti monster was yappin about burning the white house, which happened in the war of 1812.

It's actually pretty funny how Canadians burned down the White House, yet Americans still have the "all Canadians are nice" stereotype.

@flynSpaghettiMonster it was black at one point... When we burned it!! fuck yeah canada

We watched a video in History class about how Canadians thought they were the ones to burn the White House, and my teacher was making fun of them and saying how they just wanted to take credit for what the British did, until one girl raised her hand and said she was Canadian. Then he shut up.

(flynspaghettimonster) Also, if you're going to measure power by just counting how many wars a nation has won or lost, you have no idea what it means for a nation to be powerful. First of all, all of those wars were in the past, and are irrelevant to the country's present power. Second, the US is considered more powerful than Canada because it has a more advanced military, a bigger economy, and greater global influence.

Cpt_McMuffins avatar Cpt_McMuffin Yeah You Are +1Reply

(flynspaghettimonster) No. They had no victory over Canada, but you can't call that a loss as the real conflict was against the British Empire as a whole. It actually ended in a peace agreement, so neither side won or lost.

The US did not win the war of 1812, they went in trying to invade canada (and do a bunch of other shit but whatever) and they got pushed back. That doesn't qualify as a win.
You know whats cool? all the wars canada and the USA fought on the same side (WWI WWII,etc.) we won all the wars the US fought without Canada (vietnam, Iraq, etc.) the US lost, and the only war we fought against each other (1812) Canada won. And people still say the US is the most powerfull nation..
