So now I'm from New Zealand?

CamWorld: On Being Back in America

'It has become fashionable overseas to hate America because of the stupidity of Bush's foreign policy decisions. Among ex-pat communities, Americans are telling each other to tell people they are Canadian and to keep their passports out-of-sight. How sad is that? One American I talked to in Moscow even told me that this trick doesn't work anymore and now Americans should say they are from New Zealand, because as he puts it "Hey, who hates New Zealand?"'

Shit! American tourists have fucked up Canadian goodwill overseas?
