How's social distancing working for you? Good thing some of us are pros. To the rest of you, here are some funny memes that will hopefully distract you from the pain of self-isolation.
Nicole Larson, a college student at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, really likes pizza. And to showcase her love of the delicious dish, she did what she saw others doing with their loves on Facebook—a couple's photo shoot. With the help of her photographer friend, Miriam Lena, Larson staged the most romantic photo shoot ever. Don't they make such a lovely couple?
A lot of people in America have threatened to move to Canada if their chosen candidate doesn't win. Others have just had it with the stress of election day and are looking to get away from it all. These memes can help you decide before you spend all your time on that messy paperwork.
Change.org has been host to some pretty questionable petitions, such as "let people drink the red liquid from the dark sarcophugus" a few months back, when a really old Egyptian Sarcophagus was exhumed. (It got over 34,000 signatures!) Anyway we're not sure if selling Montana to Canada would solve the debt crisis, but it sure is a neat idea. Here's what people, even some self-proclaimed citizens of Montana, had to say.
Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is the most statistically multicultural city in the world. While there are probably millions of heartwarming success stories, the tale of Nav Bhatia, who immigrated to the city from India in the 80's, is especially touching. After almost 25 years of never missing a game, he's been given the official title of Toronto Raptors Superfan and community ambassador. His presence at their basketball games, and court-side seats, have been well-documented, but until now, his amazing story has been pretty much under wraps. That changed when correspondent Mohammad Lila shared Bhatia's saga in a touching Twitter thread that we're going to be remembering for years to come.
Some Americans accidentally invaded Canada this weekend when about 1500 folks in floats got pushed off-course by strong winds, pushing them onto the Ontario side of the St. Clair River in Michigan.
Unwilling to share their Molson, the Canadians insisted on bussing everyone back to the border to U.S. Customs:
It has been crazy busy. Thank you Sarnia Transit. Also thank you Esso & Lanxess. Couldn't have done it without you. pic.twitter.com/a47hmm92QS— Sarnia Police (@SarniaPolice) August 21, 2016
We can guarantee they kept the party going once they got back on U.S. soil, because #Merica'!
Remember, this is the land that, until recently, was known as the "land of rape and honey."
Oh Canada, you do keep trying, don't you?
Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau was leaving the beach as a bride-to-be was coming down the stairs. With his wetsuit pulled down to his waist, he photobombed her wedding pic with his bare torso.
Canada is lucky that its PM does not have the physique of, say, D. Trump...That would not have been a sight for sore eyes.

Google trends shows searches for "how can i move to canada" spiked following the end of "Super Tuesday" after Donald Trump won the most delegates in the Republican party. The climb started slowly at first but then jumped to 1,150%.

Coincidence? Possibly, it looks like Taco Bell in Canada has a Cheetos Crunchwrap so that's worth taking into account.
More likely though, is that a lot of people are entertaining the idea of getting out of the country while the borders are still open before Trump becomes president and builds a wall around the US. Especially Chris Christie, like 30% of those searches were just him looking for a way out.
Canada's dreamy new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, will be the first prime minister to walk in Toronto's Pride Parade.
He was also part of the parade last year as a candidate.
This year's theme is "You Can Sit With Us".
Such an inclusive statement is very fitting to accompany the year a Prime Minister who has made headlines by creating a diverse and gender equal cabinet walks in the parade.
Cape Breton Island in Canada has set up a website encouraging those who plan on fleeing the U.S.A. if Donald Trump wins the Presidential election to immigrate to their beautiful island. They are highly reviewed as a tourist spot and before you ask, yes, they are 100% serious. It even says so in their FAQ:
Why are they doing this? Apparently the island's locals are desperate for company. The website explains it like this:
Our population is shrinking. A slow economy, in combination with out-migration has us on an unsustainable path. The truth is we welcome all, no matter the ideology. We have a beautiful island, a friendly people, a rich culture and a bright future. Join us here on Cape Breton Island!
