The roof is on fire, eh?


During U.S.A's early history British/Canadian armed forces burned down the first White House (or Presidential Mansion as it was called). This was (in part) retaliation for American troops destroying Port Dover.

Even though Canada doesn't like to wage war, he never lost a war before.

I guess Canada mellowed out when he grew up. Like, a lot.

And then after the white house was burned, a tornado swept through and wiped out the British army.

Also if you think Americans are sensitive about the war of 1812, just suggest to a Canadian that "It was the British that burned the white house and repulsed America, not Canada" its almost as effective a way of ruffling a Canadian's feathers as simply saying "America" is able to enrage Latin Americans.

I find this rather hilarious because it just goes to show that countries also plot revenge and stuff, just like humans. But in the end, America and Canada are friends now. It's kinda cool. ^^

So the tale goes, well after the War of 1812 was settled, a British official was dining with a group of American officials in Washington. The wine was flowing freely, and after his severalth glass, one of the Yanks turned to the Brit and said belligerently, "You know, you guys BURNED Washington!"

"Really?" was the response. "I always thought he died peacefully in bed."
