When I do finally get to the BeaverTail stand, I'm going to request an Obama-themed BeaverTail! Can we get some applause for the O-tail? Yes we can!
Pictured above is the creator of the BeaverTail, holding up an Obama-themed one. It has a big Nutella 'O' on it (for Obama, naturally) and maple syrup. I just now realized that he is wearing an apron with Obama's face on it. According to the Canadian tv news networks, if you're lucky enough to be invited to the Canadian Embassy for the inauguration, you'll get a free Obama-BeaverTail, made by the creator from ingredients shipped in specially from Canada.
Meanwhile, I'm still awaiting my invitation from the US Embassy here, for the Fancy Dress Cocktail Party which they should be throwing for all the Americans in Ottawa. (Hint- hurry up with that US Embassy!)
