'Simpsons' go to Canada for cheap drugs

Simpsons cross border into Manitoba seeking cheap Canadian drugs

EDMONTON (CP) - Seeking cheap Canadian prescription drugs, Homer Simpson crossed the border into Manitoba on Sunday night.

The affable cartoon character was welcomed to Winnipeg - a city known for its booming cross-border Internet pharmacy industry - with a sign that read: "We were born here, what's your excuse?"

With his father, Abraham, Ned Flanders and Apu in tow, Homer loads up his vehicle with a plethora of pills at a Canadian pharmacy to deliver to the residents of Springfield, starved of drugs after the city's employers eliminated health-care plans.

The group obtains their phoney health cards from an aging Johnny Canuck, who promises they'll get "enough drugs to make Regina look like Saskatoon."

They're also offered up marijuana by a Canadian Ned Flanders clone who cheerfully quips: "Would you like to puff on a reeferino? It's legal here."

But Homer's career as a drug mule comes to an end when Mounties at a border crossing suspect Apu - wearing a towel as a turban - is "expressing his faith, eh."

Sunday night's drug run wasn't the Simpsons' first visit to Canada. When the family went to Toronto in 2002, Marge was immediately impressed with how "clean and bland" everything was.

References to Canada are not uncommon on the long-running cartoon, which has had several Canadian writers over the years.
