Few people can fail to be aware that Ice Hockey is pretty important in Canada.
Toronto’s team, the Maple Leaves may be a financial success, but are not known as winners on the ice.
Recently the Toronto Star ran a selection of Maple Leaf jokes, of which the following is a taster:
Q: What do the Leafs and the Titanic have in common?
A: They both look good until they hit the ice!
Q: What do you call 25 millionaires sitting around watching the Stanley Cup playoffs on TV?

(the Stanley Cup is the NHL championship trophy)
Q: What did the Leafs fan do after Toronto won the Stanley Cup?
A: He turned off his PlayStation.
