Texas *Hold Up There* Canada You can stop installing location transmitters in your coins now

I play Texas Hold'em with a "friend." He works for a company that does some work in Canada. I never thought anything of it. That was until I read this:

"They say money talks, and a new report suggests Canadian currency is indeed chatting, at least electronically, on behalf of shadowy spies.

Canadian coins containing tiny transmitters have mysteriously turned up in the pockets of at least three American contractors who visited Canada, says a branch of the U.S. Department of Defence."

Now I get why "they" suck so bad at poker. Why on Earth is your wife calling unconnected unsuited cards to the river? Is it to ply my cupboards full of your spy chips? Me thinks so.

I just don't understand why Canada wants to know where I'll be at all times. I mean I've always like Canada. I dig socialized medicine and my brother likes hockey. So I don't see why they have it out for me.

Doesn't Canada know how much I hate Trey Parker? Libertarians are ready to celebrate the victory of our Surveillance Society Overlords.

Et Tu Canada?

Canadians need to monitor our usage of real maple syrup.
