It has sort of an "Oh yea, why don't you come up here and say that" kind of feel to it

He just said that because it's across the river from Detroit, which Colbert loves ripping on.

That was a funny bit on the show.

Mr. Colbert did not claim Windsor, Ontario, to be "Earth's Rectum". Mr. Colbert asked, by way of a question within a footnote, whether Windsor, Ontario is "Earth's Rectum". Mr. Colbert was not making a declaration; he was only asking a question.

Wait till he "accidently" gets run over by a reindeer during the parade.

Really? Because according to the article it seems more like the guy finds Colbert hilarious.

No no no. The Earth's Rectum is El Paso.

I spent a very long week there one night. Never again.

Windsor is NOT the Earth's rectum. It is, however, right across the river from it. Maybe that is where the confusion came from.

Have you ever been to South Detroit, Canada (aka Windsor, Ontario)? If you have, you would know that Colbert isn't too far off the mark here.

Seeing as Windsor is right across the river from Detroit he may have been confused where he was at.

What is particularly amusing is that Windsor is well known as being one of the most anti-US cities in Canada... being that on any given Friday night there are more Yanks than Canadians there, they've had plenty of experience with hordes of obnoxious, beer swilling 19 and 20 years old drunkards from across the river.

Places where the economy is based primarily on tourism are always populated by people who hate tourists. Florida is the same way.

Once you get deeper into Canada everyone becomes more stereotypically super-friendly, though.

There's been quite an infusion of capital and economic activity and it's actually improved quite a bit over the last decade or so. It's now probably only about half as much of a shiathole as it used to be.

I always thought Nashville, TN was the earth's rectum. You mean there's worse places?

The last time I visited Windsor, it was exactly like a little Detroit. Canada should definitely know better.

Did you go to Rose's Cantina, fall in love with a Mexican girl, shoot a cowboy, steal a horse, and flee to the badlands of New Mexico?

You'll be back. You miss her. Admit it.

You know what? Good on em. Most city officials would have responded in a completely different and far less productive way. Now the city will get the Colbert rump bump and maybe even draw in some extra dollars from additional attendees to their parade.

Well played Mr. Mayor.

Well, I went to undergrad at the University of Windsor and really enjoyed the school and city. Hell, I even had fun hopping across the river to go to the DIA, Cobo Hall, St Andrew's Hall, King Bookstore. Watching Detroit flare up on Hallowe'en from the safety of Windsor was always fun, too.

What I'm learning in this thread is that the earth clearly has many rectums.

As an American, I have to say I've always liked Canada and Canadians, even when they beat the Black Hawks at hockey. As a kid, my folks drove us to visit a distant relative in Windsor. My everlasting impressions of WIndsor from that time were: BOY, this place is kept spotlessly clean - not a speck of trash on any road or sidewalk, everything looks swept and dusted and tidy, compared to Chicago, and everyone is SO DAMNed Polite.

My second impression was how patriotic the people were: we went to the movies and they played a clip of the Maple Leaf Flag and everyone stood and sang their anthem, which sounds very nice, by the way; firm, yet understated, confident and reverent. As a kid, I sat back down and thought, as the film started to play, why don't we do that in our theaters, only at sports events?

Do Canadian theaters still do that? I'd like to think they do, but I expect that's no longer the case today.

I don't know, I've been to Welland and Windsor and I would choose Sault Ste. Marie as Canada's butt hole.

I might say Americas armpit, there are places abroad that make Muncie look like Laguna Beach.
