Okay, I'll try this again now that I have fallen prey to my own
stereotype: the illiterate, unable-to-spell American. Dang, and I was
real close, too. I stand corrected.

Q: How do Canadians spell 'Canada'?

A: C-eh-N-eh-D-eh! (for those who have never heard this Canadian verbal
tic, it sounds like this: eh = the sound of a long a in English, as in 'say'.)

This ought to shatter the illusion that Americans can't learn from their mistakes.
