Alico Building purchased by The Canadians!


In what can only be seen as a blow to American pride, Waco's own Alico Skyscraper has been purchased by Canadians. The odd spectre of touque-wearing, beaver-trapping, plaid shirt enthusiasts prancing down Austin Avenue with their reindeer will soon be something we all will have to get used to. Well, except me. I'm moving.

The building is to be renamed the Gretzky Tower, and will be a center for the Canadian Broadcast Channel (CBC), which has purchased the remaining NBC stations in Texas.

The Alico Building is not the Canadian's only acquisition, either. They have also bought up large buildings in Tyler, Abilene, Port Arthur, and Frankston. Some analysts believe that this buy-up is motivated by the effects of global warming. Many of the larger building in Canada itself, including major government buildings, are built out of ice blocks and are rapidly melting. Three years ago, in fact, the Montreal Expos were forced to move because large portions of their stadium had gone liquid.

As this report reveals, even Canada's Parliament Buidling (known as the "National Igloo") is in danger:

Aren't you moving to Canada?
 
Great! Now we're being attacked from both borders! Just another example of the Obama administration's absolute incompetence when it comes to border security and endangered beaver preservation.

Look out Texas, your children will soon be forced to learn Spanish AND French as state sponsored primary languages!

One question: If we already print every government form on two sides, one side in English and one in Spanish, how will the influx of a third language work? Will copy machines now print in 3D? Can Xerox rise to the challenge?

Still, I can't wait for the first Mexican-Canadian (Mexadian? Canexican?) fusion restaurant to open!!!
 
I look forward to the many interesting shows on the CBC network. For example, I hope they will provide coverage of the sport of ice hockey.
 
Lane - close enough. And I think Osler Island is technically 'in' Canada on some days of the week.

- Yes this will be an everyday occurence up in Minnesota. Especially the reindeer!


CTL - perhaps Waco will need beaver fences to go along with the turtle fences?

Brent - you will have better Olympic coverage every 4 years ~ but you better enjoy curling. Hey, maybe they will open a curling center in Waco.
 
I really thought this was a joke until you told me it wasn't . . . it was awesome to see you out tonight!
 
woo hoo canada
we bought your city symbol
this is a haiku
