... Or why Canadians can't find work...

Joe Smith started the day early
having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 a.m.
While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking,
he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG).
He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRILANKA),
designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and
tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).
After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA)
he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO)
to see how much! he could spend today.
After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN)
to the radio (MADE IN INDIA),
he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) and
continued his search for a good paying CANADIAN JOB.
At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day,
Joe decided to relax for a while.
He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL)
poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and
turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA),
watching all his favorite shows (MADE IN AMERICA), and
then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in.....CANADA.....

Remove the line that reads "watching all his favorite shows (MADE IN AMERICA),"

Replace "CANADA" with either "UNITED STATES" or "NORTHERN NORTH AMERICA" in the line "andthen wondered why he can't find a good paying job in.....CANADA....."

And yes, it's also happening down here in the lower-48 also, except a little bit less noticeable -- yet! Same sh!t, different coutry. Yes, I'm a little "cold" because it is a struggle to find work for me and I'm not happy about it.
