An American and a Canadian are both out hunting birds for dinner near the border when they both shoot the same bird at the same time.
The dead bird proceeds to land exactly on the border between their respective nations.
The American suggests a contest: "Hey bro, let's kick each other in the nuts until someone gives up and agrees for the other to have the bird."
The Canadian agrees and, being the kind and courteous Canadian he is, also agrees to let the American go first.
The American goes back ten paces and runs up to the Canadian full speed and kicks him right in the nads.
The Canadian buckles over in pain and, whilst curled up holding his balls, hears the American laugh and say: "You win, I give up!" --- Remember that failure only occurs the moment you've decided you will no longer strive for success. - Lysamus
