The Simpsons and Canada...

You may snigger... but it matters a great deal to all Canadians when a character in The Simpsons makes a reference to, or a joke about the true land of the free.

For example: season 6 episode 19 "The PTA Disbands", during which Marge takes up a teaching position at Springfield Elementary...

Homer: [expansive] So, how was everybody's day at school?
Bart: Horrifying!
Lisa: Pointless!
Marge: Exhausting. It took the children forty minutes to locate Canada on the map.
Homer: Marge, anyone can miss Canada, all tucked away down there.
