Canadians complain their money smells like maple syrup

The national treasury released a new plastic bank note in November 2011, and they have received hundreds of emails from residents who are convinced that the bills have an added fragrance.

’They all have a scent which I’d say smells like maple? Please advise if this is normal?’ wrote one concerned citizen.

Canadians are so cute.

    Every time they switch up the bills in this country, a fringe contingent insists on complaining bitterly, wailing inconsolably, or just plain making shit up and/or believing every idiotic rumour that they come across during the course of their day.

    It probably has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that, in all likelihood, 100% of the residents of Canuckistan have maple syrup left on their hands, at any given time.

    Meanwhile, a large percentage of U.S. currency bears traces of cocaine.
