Magazine (a Canadian socio-politico-complexo-migraino mag with a humourous bent) and have created a satrical site called Marry An American:

When the provisional Ohio votes are counted and if George W.

a threatened species – will be desperate to escape.

These lonely, afraid (did we mention really hot?) progressives will need

a safe haven.

You can help. Open your heart, and your home. Marry an American.

Legions of Canadians have already pledged to sacrifice their

singlehood to save our southern neighbours from four more years

of cowboy conservatism.
