FAQ from the International Tourist Website

Now that Vancouver has won the chance to host the 2010
Winter Olympics,
these are some questions people the world over are

Believe it or not these questions about Canada were posted
on an International Tourism Website, obviously the answers are a
joke; but the questions were really asked! The parenthesis contain the

eating the brains of anyone walking close to them. You can scare them
off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking
