A mysterious man has been showing up at Ted Cruz's campaign events in Iowa with a sign reading "Ted Cruz Likes Nickelback," amusing the hell out of the Internet and generally doing God's work. Everyone knows there's nothing worse than being accused of liking the Canadian band Nickelback (no offense, Nickelback!) except maybe being accused of liking other Canadian band Barenaked Ladies (sorry, Barenaked Ladies!). Especially when you're accused of being a secret Canadian.
The mysterious protestor also hands out copies of the Republican presidential candidate's birth certificate, showing Cruz's birthplace as the Canadian city of Calgary, in Alberta. Sometimes the protestor just has the sign, but at a recent rally held by the Cruz's super PAC, he dressed as a Canadian Mountie for good measure. He also brought along a little display of Canadian flags and a picture of a maple leaf with Ted Cruz's face over it.
