Oh, Canada!

That's it. PTSD is moving across the border.

The USA's banning vegemite.* What next? Tim tams? Momo's? Yakult?

Soon, I'll be reduced to eating roast beef and boiled veggies.

* A fairly usual uni "welcome" in Australia for overseas students included making a poor, unsuspecting, jet-lagged student slather vegemite on toasted bread and eat it. The faces (and reactions) as said person tried to a) finish eating, b) run away so they could get rid of the foul taste while c) trying not to offend their host countrypeople would lead to much mirth on the part of the (not new) students. How do I know? Learning-by-doing as a newly-arrived teenager from Nepal.
