An open letter to Canadians of the Twitterverse:

Thank you for being so funny. Your submissions for the Geist #greatcanadianbooktitle contest made us proud to have you all as followers. Please, take the time to bask in your own wit and meet some of the other people out there who share your impeccable sense of humour. Go ahead, tell us which ones are your favourites. Better yet, add them on Twitter and tell them yourself. We might have chosen our top two, but there are plenty of honourable mentions out there.

Keep up the good work fellow Geistians, and to you new faces: we look forward to sitting around the campfire with you up at our cottage, sipping coffee and beer while apologizing to the beavers.
