    Missouri Star Quilting email to Canadians... anybody get it?

    It is hilarious! They are offering flat rate shipping to Canada ($20.00) but the rest of the email is cool!

    I don't know who wrote it, but is was so funny! Somebody knows a lot about Canada and Canadians down there!

    I will try to copy and paste it here so all of us 'Canuck' can have a good chuckle'.

    500 Free Quilter's Cash Points & New Canadian Shipping Rates

    Let’s face it, even though you Canucks are our next-door neighbours (notice my Canadian spelling), you pay A LOT more for shipping than our customers down here in the US do. I mean, it’s probably because once your package reaches the Canadian border, it then has to be transported by dogsled or moose-back to your igloo, and on the way, the mail man has to stop seven times to grab a Tim Horton’s coffee to warm himself up. But still, shipping rates from the US to Canada are, as you would say, “hosers”, plain and simple. And just because you have free-healthcare and we don’t, doesn’t mean that your shipping rates have to be so painful.
    So a couple of months ago, we decided to make Canadian shipping rates as simple as the metric system. If you hadn’t heard, we introduced $20 flat Canadian shipping. So you can order quilting supplies that weigh as much as 14 hockey pucks, 12 large poutines with extra cheese, Bryan Adams, all the extra letter “U’s” that you guys use when you spell stuff, a bathtub full of maple syrup, a wad of multicolored currency, a treasure chest full of twoonies and loonies, a Newfie, and the entire starting line of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it’ll still only cost you twenty bucks! So get oot and aboot (out and about) and gather your Canadian quilting friends and make an order the size of the Northwest Territories (the size it was before Nunavut came into play), and we’ll ship it for just $20!
    And just to show how much we love you, your female music artists, male comedians and your Jeopardy hosts, we’ve placed 500 Quilter’s Cash points in your account towards your very next order! So let those red, white and …. uh….red colors wave for $20 flat shipping to our friendly neighbours to the north!
    Click HERE to see today's Daily Deal and get to shopping. And remember, share with your friends because group international orders are best!
    Sincerely,
    Jenny and the MSQC team

    I love reading their daily deal emails! The person doing them has a good sense of humor. If you order they also send you funny emails about your order. I like the way they do business.

    Cute email! I can't believe how much it costs to send things outside of the US. I sent a 5 x 7 envelope to Australia - it was VERY light - just some scraps of fabric and it cost me $12.00. Unbelievable.

    I guess they're trying to cash in on we big spenders up here. CT this the only other company I know that give us a flat rate. Are there any others?

    Bahahahahahahahaha! Jenny at MSQC, you are so funny! Can you do something about the postage to Australia? Once our mail arrives, the mailman loads up the kangaroos and hops around town to deliver it! Maybe a Christmas Special? So we can get our Six White Boomers to race Santa Clause through the blazing sun to deliver our goods... I will order more fabric than a shopping trolly full of vegemite, Tim-Tams and Fosters beer! Better yet, why not come for a visit? I will throw a shrimp on the BBQ and we can have a shin dig your won't forget in a hurry!

    That one had me laughing out loud. We lived in Minot, ND during the 1970s and this lil ol' Southern gal had to learn a new language--what with the Nodaks and Canucks both coming at me from every direction. I love it.

    I have never been to Canada, but I did learn to speak "Canadian" by watching "The Red Green Show". Loved that show and miss the great humour in it! Our northern brothers should share more of their TV with us! Love this email too!

    MSQC sends the most delightful e-mails, brightens the days even when things are not great, and what a lot of good they have done their little town.

    funny you should comment on that, because I did to, to them. Theta replied that it was written by a Canadian that works for them .If you want to see the exact comment go to you tube for this weeks tutorial. I asked a question and commented about their accurate analogise of our Canadian language.

    Very funny. MSQC has a great sense of humor and fun. I also loved the RG show and used to get Canadian TV (CBC) through Direct TV but they canceled it. I enjoyed CBC.

    I have sent packages up North and it is pricey and slow, but it does work. I say why rush, it will get there.

    What a hoot! I'm doing a road trip Monday with some quilting buddies to Hamilton MO to visit Missouri Star--been before and it's great! Highly recommend a side trip if you are anywhere near it--you will go to several different stores, all part of Missouri Star.
