And now?

Well, do those look like maple leaves to you…

To some, they looked like marijuana leaves:

Others have (probably more correctly) pointed out that they look like Japanese maple leaves.

You be the judge:

The Japanese maple leaf explanation seems more plausible, though still unacceptable. The Canadian Grand Prix isn’t a new stop on the Formula 1 circuit, and Ferrari has been coming to Montreal on an annual basis since the 1970s.

Also, the Canadian maple leaf is on our flag.
