A man is alone in an airport lounge. A beautiful woman walks in and sits down at the table next to him. Assuming because she wears a uniform, she's probably an off-duty flight attendant for some airline.
Wanting to impress her, he decides to try identifying the airline she flies for, thereby impressing her.
He leans across to her and says the British Airways motto : 'To Fly. To Serve'? 
The woman looks at him blankly.
He leans forward again and delivers the Air France motto: 'Winning the hearts of the world'? 
Again she just stares at him with a slightly puzzled look on her face.
Undeterred, he tries again, this time saying the Malaysian Airlines motto: 'Going beyond expectations'? 
The woman looks at him sternly and says: “What the f#&k do you want?”
“A hah!” he says, "Air Canada!”

We would like to wish all our American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving.

As the bears are curling up for the winter, I happened this old Rick Mercer clip of him tagging them :)
