After Germany beat Canada 4-3 in a stunning men's hockey upset Friday at the Olympics in PyeongChang, the victorious country's foreign office posted a playful note on social media to remind its citizens to tread gently around Canadians for the time being. After all, Team Canada had just lost its chance at the gold medal.

"Travel advisory: Germans in Canada should exercise a high degree of empathy. Be nice, don't gloat, give hugs, buy rounds of hot chocolate ... Just imagine how you would feel if Canada beat us in soccer," the German Foreign Office tweeted playfully.
