Somewhere there's a village/where things turned out OK
Think of all the exotic religious beliefs you have read about. Is it fair to say that most of them are held by people who live in exotic climes, have exotic names, speak exotic languages, perhaps even wear exotic clothes?
But one day you have your nose rubbed in the fact that your ordinary neighbors might be as exotic as anybody else. Or maybe you yourself!

I am one of those Canadians -- and there are plenty -- who is not particularly attached to hockey. But I know enough to realize how much seriousness there is behind the humorous facade.
