Donald Sutherland Just Told A Hilarious Joke About Canada That Will Shut Us All Up
You know Donald Sutherland — fellow Canadian, native New Brunswicker, father of Kiefer, and actor of literally-every-movie-ever.
And you know that everyone and their mama's got a joke about Canada (usually involves moose, maple syrup, etc etc), but Donald has probably just told the best one. Because it's 100% completely and shamefully accurate.
I kind of gave up talking about Canadian cinema a long time ago. There's a famous story of a British soldier and a French soldier and a Canadian soldier who were captured in the process of the war and sent to be shot by firing squad, but they were each given an opportunity to have a last wish. The Brit asked for a cup of tea, the Canadian asked for 15 minutes to talk about Canadian identity, and the Frenchman asked to be shot before the Canadian.
