Hello and welcome! Unfortunately, I have undone your edit to this article. You added a paragraph to the Intro that was a list of Canadian stereotype "exports" with no comedy point of its own. That is, the reader (assuming he already knows the joke!) reads the joke once more.
But the article already has a section entitled Exports. This section has the same fault--it is a dumb list of stereotypes about Canada that the writer expected to be funny by itself, with no additional work. This could be improved--but I don't think you read this far before you started editing.
Canada is an established article and what you should do is read the whole thing and then make improvements that fit with what's there. Cheers! 15:46 26-Jul-13
PS--I'm afraid your edit of yesterday did not seem to fit. You referred to an epic of Canadian literature right in the middle of the Intro. There is a place to tell this joke further down the page--and develop it: Tell us more about this book, perhaps in the section Education, eh? or Language (That section is empty, pointing to a subpage). Also, I get that you are trying to write so as to imitate the Canadian dialect, but that didn't match the rest of the Intro and I thought it made it very hard to read that sentence. Sorry about that!01:35 25-Jan-14
