Borrowing Funnies from the Urban Dictionary

 Urban Dictionary.com defines the Canadian flag this way:

1) What Americans attach to their backpacks/suitcases/purses/bags while in Europe, especially France. Used to disguise identity or in hopes that any sort of harassment will be dissuaded. Usually in small iron-on patch form.

Then, below the definition is a sample sentence like a traditional dictionary would provide:

“Look at that guy with the Canadian Flag…who does he think he’s kidding?”

Wait! Don’t hang up yet! There are two more definitions of a Canadian Flag:

2) A pot leaf with two rolling papers  (who knew?)

and

3) A pride of symbol (don’t they mean a symbol of pride?) in Canada, also a thing Americans use to avoid being yelled at, beaten up, or killed in Europe

    These are so awesome! I love them.

    I used to have a life password. Until my eBay account was hacked and someone tried to buy a computer using my bank account and have the computer sent to Lithuania. Now I have a bunch of different passwords.

    (I did get the money back, BTW.) Hackers are going to hell.
