Balanced World, eh?

I read this in the comments section of this Dilbert post, in which some cheap shots were taken at Canadians. I think it's pretty funny...

After God hadn't been seen in six days, Michael the Archangel found him and asked where He had been. God pointed downwards and said, "I made a planet and put life on it. I call it Earth and it will be a place of perfect balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael.

God explained, "Yes, for example, Northern Europe is a place of opportunity and wealth, while Southern Europe is poor. The Middle East will be a hot spot. I made a continent of white people and another of black people. One area is hot and arid, while others are cold and covered with ice."

Michael was impressed. But then he pointed to a large land mass and asked, "What's that one?"

"Ah," said God. "That's Canada, the most glorious place of all. There are mountains, lakes, streams and an exquisite coast line. The people are modest, intelligent, humorous, sociable, hard-working, high-achieving, peace-loving diplomats."

Michael nodded, but then asked, "What about balance, God? You said Earth was a place of perfect balance!"

God replied wisely, "Wait till you see the loudmouths I put next to them!"
