In 2004, the province of Manitoba was sued by psychedelicelectronikrautrock artist Dan "Manitoba" Snaith, who believed that people would become confused between the two. Many observers felt this was really quite stupid considering he was a human being and the province of Manitoba was a large province of Canada. Nevertheless, fuelled by the milk of human kindness, Snaith carried on regardless. His attorney, superhero Johnnie "Tom" Cochrane, used jedi mind tricks to convince a judge that it was possible someone low down the food chain might become confused between a psychedelicelectronikrautrock artist and a large Canadian province. Therefore, the province of Manitoba was forced to rename itself. After much deliberation, it renamed itself "Caribou".
Many observers feel this name change was forced through by the large numbers of caribou in the Manitoba government, who had been drafted in many years before when it was discovered there were not enough people in Manitoba to fill all the necessary governmental positions.
However, the saga was not over (all thanks to the natives): a group of caribou soon decided to sue the state of Caribou (formerly Manitoba), believing that people would become confused between the two. Many observers felt this was really quite stupid considering the group of caribou were a group of caribou and the province of Caribou was a large province of Canada. Nevertheless, fuelled by cocaine, the caribou carried on regardless. Their attorney, superhero Johnnie Cochran, used jedi mind tricks to convince a judge that it was possible someone low down the food chain might become confused between a group of caribou and a large Canadian province. Therefore, the province of Caribou was forced to rename itself. After much deliberation, it renamed itself "Metallica". Metallica now hosts the regions largest "Momen's Music Festival". Caribou (formerly Manitoba) won a three trillion dollar award by Polaris Snowmobiles, and with this money, Caribou is planning counter sue Dan "Manitoba" Snaith in the near future.
Manitoba has a new slogan, replacing the old slogan "Disturbingly Manitoba" to "We do have a lot of Natives eh?"
Canadian Guide to Immigration
What to do if an American has somehow immigrated into your small Manitoban town.
Make fun of him for being an American Throw clay skeets at him Hit him with large heavy plastic bats Remind him that he is an American, every minute of every day Tell him to go work in field Tell him that his religion is wrong Give him AIDS, and/or Herpes, while his sleeping Put a rat down his pants while he's drunk Ask him/her: "Did you lose a bet?" or, "I heard that the criminal justice system is tough in the states, but is'nt moving here considered 'cruel and unusual punishment'?" Remind him/her of our Provincial Motto is only valid before Lundar, Manitoba: Then you have pay in cash. Take him/her on our Province's favorite amusement ride: The revolving doors at the Provincial Courts Building. Get him to sign our petition for our new Provincial Motto: "We bend to where the Country blows." (Take it any way you can think it.) Take them to the 'Hall of Survivors' honoring Manitobians such as Burton Cummings. Canada Ambassador to the US, Gary Doer, and former mayor of Winnipeg, Glen Murrary, MP. They survived by leaving this sinking ship of a province. In Winnipeg; Take him/her on a tour of the St. Regis Hotel. Affectionally referred to up north by most First Nations communities as 'The Indian Embassy'. As part of the rite of initiation of becoming a Winnipegger; he/she must dodge the endless obstacles of panhandlers and squeegie kids in the downtown core and then, walk through the city's North End at night. Take them to the spot where we tried to sacrifice the Queen of England to our River God. Introduce our new found hostage...err, citizen to Winnipeg's #1 sport: 'Pot-Hole Dodging'! Take him/her to Winnipeg's Favorite Charity event; a Winnipeg Blue Bomber game. If our new citizen is single, introduce him to the lovely ladies of Higgins Avenue. Manitoba, being a the wonderful, multicultural mosaic that it is. We should introduce our new citizens in colorful, richness of our diverse languages by asking him/her to identify the language of profanity that is being spoken when it comes time to pay our property taxes. Take him to the church where we canonized Burton Cummings' moustache. Show them the memorial dedicated to those citizens that died needlessly of hypothermia in bus shelters during winter while waiting for Winnipeg Transit to run on time. Take them on walk through the 'Halls of Power': The MTS Building and Manitoba Hydro. (The Manitoba Legislative Building? What are you kidding?) Introduce them to our weekly city betting pool; "Guess how many citizens will be murdered this week?" Show him the sight of the future sight of Canada's symbol of intellectual ambiguity, self indulgent narcissim and probably the largest oxymoron in Canada; The Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
