Hosers are a unique race of people, indigenous to Canada. The principal aspects of their society are drinking beer, watching hockey, and listening to the Tragically Hip. The Hosers have been tolerated by their American neighbours mainly for their useful strategic location between the U.S.A. and the Bears. It is widely acknowledged that if the Hosers were to lose their supply of beer, hockey, and bad music, they would unite with the bears to conquer the United States. This is one of the reasons why the NHL is an American based sports league. Luckily, there is no foreseeable shortage in any of the hoser's survival requirements.
