Aplogies from Canada

Davwud | Jun 23, 2013 11:54 AM

Hey Hounds.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm an honourary Southerner. Perhaps it's the Canadian in me that's worried about offending others. Perhaps I'm just getting old. But I found this commercial to be just about as offensive as possible:

For those who are unaware, Boston Pizza is a chain restaurant here in Canada and if their food wasn't offensive enough, this commercial is just too much. I was watching TV with Mrs. Sippi (which for those of you who don't know, was born in Memphis and raised in Ms) and this came on. I wanted to crawl under the couch. I was so embarrassed.

So from this Canadian to any people out there who've seen this and were offended, I apologize. We're really much better than this.

Have your say on their fb page:
