Aplogies from Canada

Hey Hounds.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm an honourary Southerner. Perhaps it's the Canadian in me that's worried about offending others. Perhaps I'm just getting old. But I found this commercial to be just about as offensive as possible:

For those who are unaware, Boston Pizza is a chain restaurant here in Canada and if their food wasn't offensive enough, this commercial is just too much. I was watching TV with Mrs. Sippi (which for those of you who don't know, was born in Memphis and raised in Ms) and this came on. I wanted to crawl under the couch. I was so embarrassed.

So from this Canadian to any people out there who've seen this and were offended, I apologize. We're really much better than this.

Have your say on their fb page:

          Yea, because poverty is hilarious. Come on let's all have a good laugh at the less fortunate.

        2. Gotta expect Canadians to mock the southerners from Boston a little...
