    The most popular Canadian thing is owned by Wendy's...




    P.S. This new place is a bit eerie without emoticon.

    By god, it even looks like a Wendy's - same footprint. I never would have made that connection.
    We didn't land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on us.

    So much for capturing the essence of an awe-inspiring place.

    I know the pic is neat and I don't mean to sound hostile. It bothers me, making the extraordinary ordinary.

    I think we've finally discovered how they fed the workers who built the pyramids.

    One of the things that amused me when living in South Korea was how the Koreans were dead certain that businesses like KFC and Pizza Hut originated in Korea, and Korea had exported them to the U.S., not the other way around. I could not convince them otherwise. I guess they thought the "K" in KFC stood for "Korean."
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that a problem.

    LOL at the nationalistic sentiments here.

    Of course the real message of the pictures (as in the reality they reflect) is just as easily phrased "owners of iconic American brand franchises say 'who needs the USA?'"


    EDIT:

    Honduras is just like the United States--all the cars on the road are Japanese.
