Essentially, Mr. Freeze is working with all these other ice-related supervillains, and they've frozen the city.

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

It's actually fairly warm in Toronto as of late.

For 10 months of the year, then move to Australia for 2.

Australia just doesn't get that cold.

Also, hey! Toronto =/= Canada!

Toronto is a part of Canada. A blanket statement such as "move to Canada" seems to imply that the entirety of it would be suitable to the purpose stated, whereas that is clearly not the case.

Toronto = x/Canada.

Heh. This thread amuses me because it's so Canadian. XD

Just the Toronto vs The Rest of Canada thing, and neither party wanting to fall to stereotypes about Canada (ie, "when you think of Canada remember it's not just about Toronto," and "remember, we don't all live in igloos, Toronto is pretty hot."), it's a conversation that only Canadians could have. And that makes me smile.

Ah, sorry, that was a joke... because there's the stereotype that Canadians say "eh?" all the time.

So, they were drawing up the maps for North America and they were trying to decide what to call that big space over the top of the States, and they couldn't come up with anything so they collected some scrabble tiles and had a guy pull them out of a hat. So first he pulls out a C, eh? And then he gets an N, eh? And then a D, eh?

... it works better out loud.

Pronounce "eh" out loud, it sounds like "a".

Care to explain, please?

When people say "Eh" down here it sounds more like "E". *shrugs*

I remember a friend of mine had the Betty and Veronica Go To Canada special, and no matter where they went it was covered with two feet of snow. EVEN IN VANCOUVER!

FWIW, I'm in Ottawa and it gets damn hot here in the summer. Like Toronto, there are only two seasons, Too Hot and Too Cold.

Which is really funny and annoying when you consider how popular Archie comics are in Canada.

Heh, that made me laugh. There was another one where they were all laughing at Ron for bring her fur coats to Vancouver in July. I distinctly remember how "the warm Chinook winds keep things nice and hot down here".
