Canada, We Like You, We Really Like You

According to a recent Gallup survey, Canada was the most favorably viewed nation by Americans. When we see surveys such as this, we immediately ask the question, “Why?” What’s the point? Is the U.S. government going to alter foreign policy based on the countries Americans “like” or not? Will tourism bureaus in the less-favorite countries begin advertising in Travel + Leisure? Why only 22 countries on the list? We could go on and on. For the record, the top five (in order) were Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Japan, and Israel. The bottom five were Afghanistan, Iraq, The Palestinian Authority, North Korea, and Iran.

We still have no idea what this means, but Canada, you da best.
