We Canadians share a border with the most powerful country on the planet and yet we are smug in the knowledge that we have something they don't have.
Is it our clean air?
Is it our large reserves of good water?
Is it the fact that we are blessed with an incredibly cute, smart and lovable population who say "eh" a lot?
While all the above facts are true, none of them are the one Canadian asset which reduces our neighbours to the south to tears.
That asset? Why KINDER SURPRISES, of course!
And while we at MarnCo try to keep Marn's Big Adventure completely free of all things which could be construed as either smutty and/or sexual, well, there is no way to explain Kinder Surprise goodness without a Kinder Surprise strip tease.
Try to keep yourselves under control, 'kay?
So here it is, the candy seductively arrayed on it's wrapper. You might think you now know everything you need to know about a Kinder Surprise, but you would be soooo wrong.
Like a clever woman, this bon bon does not give up all its secrets at first glance.
Omigawd, look, there's something inside the chocolate egg! It's a mystery, wrapped in an enigma and hidden behind the fridge! What could it be?
And here's a few other Kinder Surprises we've gotten over the years, magical little bits of assemble it yourself goodness.
Another race of people would be all mean and nasty and rub it in that they have such wonders in their lives and that other folks .:cough:. 'Mericans .:cough:. have to lead empty meaningless lives devoid of Kinder Surprises.
But no, we Canuckians are a gentle, thoughtful race.
Neener, neener, neener we have Kinder Surprises and you don't!
Um, did I just say that out loud?
Want to delve into my sordid past?

This template is a riff on a design by the truly talented Quinn. Because I'm a html 'tard, I got alot of pity coding to modify it from Ms. Kittay, a woman who can make html roll over, beg, and bring her her slippers. The logo goodness comes from the God of Graphics, the Fuhrer of Fonts, the one, the only El Presidente. I smooch you all. The background image is part of a painting called Higher Calling by Carter Goodrich which graced the cover of the Aug. 3, 1998 issue of The New Yorker Magazine. Kids, don't try viewing this at home without Netscape 6 or IE 4.5+, a screen resolution of 800 X 600 and the font Mead Bold firmly ensconced on your hard drive.
