If you have followed Stats Canada on Twitter, and not the actual Stats Canada, the parody account, you will already have an idea of what this book is all about.

As with any satirical work, there is a tendency to go a bit too far and I found that some of the jokes were a bit offensive.

At first glance, and from the synopsis we are given a taste of wh

What a lovely book! I picked this book up expecting to walk away learning tons of cool facts about my great country, and what I got was a funny, laughable, enjoyable and lighthearted comedy routine on our great country!

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for giving

Their hilarious tweets have ill-informed thousands of followers for some five years now. In this book the four authors have out together a collection of unreliable facts that will make you laugh out loud, groan occasionally, and eventually bore everyone around you by reading entries aloud: “Just one more – lis ...more

This was a highly entertaining book that made me laugh out loud countless times! It's a very fun read and it really is a must for those wanting to celebrate Canada's 150 in a humorous way! The following is my favourite line which describes an awesome Canadian beverage:

"Sangria Twain: Enjoy a glass of seasonal frozen fruit in a sweet, earthly punch of orange, brandy and red wine. Sure to impress you much."
