In Kanadia... is a national holiday. They call it, "Nashinul Litur... Lita... Lut.. Lern 2 Red Day" On this day in 1987 the first book to ever be published in Kanadia was, in fact, published. This government-released nonfiction piece entitled, "How to Rape a Moose," was the first of its kind. Kanadians didn't know what to do, as only immigrants knew how to actually read.

With tens of billions of dollars in aid from foreign nations, Kanadia is proud to report that 21 years later, they have successfully graduated 3 high school students with an average reading level of an American 6-year-old.

Kanadia, we salute you. You're making huge strides toward literacy by actually teaching those 3 people to read. Who knows, in another 21 years you may actually be able to teach kids to count past 9!

A truly proud day for Greg.
