    I have never seen this before and got a good laugh out of it. The hockey joke was a little lame. Not a fan of it though.

    Haha, I laughed at the "Canadians drive with the window down" for the 1.6 degrees. When I go snowboarding I drive to the mountain with the window down.

    And /agree with the ending.
