From here, and appropriate, given where I just traveled to…
God summons the Archangel Michael in to show him his greatest creation: earth. God waxes on, explaining how he has perfectly balanced everything: power to lions, but speed to the antelope, tall trees, but giraffes with long necks, an entire biosphere in perfect harmony.
He then tells Michael, let me show you something I am particularly proud of: Canada. I have given it great natural beauty, abundant natural resources, clean cities, lovely people, everything that is the best of the planet.
Micheal perplexes asks: but I thought you were balancing everything. It sounds like they have everything, whats the offsetting balance?
God responded: ah, let me tell you about their neighbors.
