Canada and Texas have the same GDP...

Australia, same as Ohio,
Russia, New Jersey,
Iran, Alabama ("home, sweet home alabama..."),
Ireland, Nevada,
etc.

This and more was in today's Globe & Mail, Canadian national newspaper.

Uh, Canada and Texas both have the same amount of letters in their name?

Yes, it did say. But I don't know if it's in Canadian or US Dollars. One Canadian Dollar is roughly $0.68.

Canada/Texas = $717-billion.

USA = $9.8-trillion
European Union = $7.9-trillion
Japan = $4.7-trillion
Russia = $259-billion

Canada and Texas:

Where the men are men, so are the women and the sheep run scared.

Don't goat me now. Okay: that would be Scotland...where the men wear dresses and the sheep are nervous, or in NZ: where the men are dags and the sheep are nervous. I think in Canada and Texas, it's the mow mows that are nervous.

Used to be a country...stretched from Mexico to Wyoming and included Santa Fe, Denver, lots of good ski country today...especially Jackson Hole.

If Texas still had all that land, who would Coloradans hate?
