A Nova Scotia couple took a wrong turn in Stanstead, Que., and mistakenly drove into the United States last weekend before being picked up by border police.
They started to suspect something was amiss when they noticed a huge increase in their sense of freedom and well-being. It soon became clear that they had wandered into “The Greatest Country In The World.”
“There were a lot of eagles, fireworks, and more spangles than you could shake a flag at” said the husband, adding that he spotted Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln riding on a horse together with Paul Revere.
“It was incredible,” said his wife. “There was every kind of fried food you could dream of, and Oprah gave us both makeovers.”
Unfortunately, during the welcoming party the woman became ill and did not have the $24,000 for a necessary medical procedure, so the couple returned to Canada.
“Damn, we almost had them,” said a disappointed Walmart greeter.
