It's not as though no one else produces crap.

There's no shortage of it in Canada -- domestic, imported, exported or otherwise. mousse It's just that the super-abundance of it in the States is truly staggering and seemingly unmatched anywhere else in the world.

Well, not really surprised, but the shock never seems to abate.
