I heard the story of the fellow's booming business of selling a "Canadian Kit" on CBC radio a couple of days ago. Apparently he was doing this in response to the problems Americans are having while travelling abroad, especially in France.
You remember that France would not support the US's "Coalition of the Willing" in the latest Gulf war situation to which the Americans responded by boycotting France by removing the term "French" from its vocabulary.
No more "French fries", it would now be "Freedom Fries" and "Liberty Toast" instead of....well you get the picture! So Americans are no longer made to feel welcome when visiting that country in particular! This gentleman on CBC said his biggest sales were to Americans travelling to France! As Canadians, they would be welcomed with open arms!
He said he was thinking of making an "American Kit" for Canadians but his market research indicated that it would be a bad move!!!! Daaaaahhhh!!!!! You think????
For a fraction of what he paid his marketing team, any Canadian could have told him that! LOL!
This is not a joke! This fellow is actually doing a real good business selling a "Canadian Kit" to Americans! Must be a proud day for the USeh?
