"I'll redefine nuclear as soon as I finish saving my company from the brink this afternoon, then I have to go get some LaBatt's, cause I runnin' low, then I'll look for those snowshoes I'll need for this winter. "
Have you ever watched "How I Met Your Mother"? They do their fare share of Canadian bashing on that show.
I LOVE THAT SHOW. I even listen to 103.3 on the radio and they bash canadians all of the time. We can take it though. You guys should watch some Rick Mercer reports on You Tube. Maybe even watch some episodes of Red Green or Corner Gas. Great Canadian comedy there. HAHAHAHA This hour has 22 minutes is also GREAT.
Eh actually comes from Britain. But of course WE get the blame/credit for it.
It is funny, I even type it on here sometimes, then I re-read what I wrote and I take it out.
My Mom was born in Milwaukee and my Dad was born in Scotland.
I was born in Toronto, so I am all mixed up. My cousin, who lives in Milwaukee likes to make fun of the way I say about(aboot). It's all in fun. Funny thing is, people from BC tell me I sound American. Well, which one is it? Do I sound Canadian, or American? Guess it depends on who I am talking to.
hehee Vibrissa, they say we Texans are not polite! BEHIND our backs they say we are cocky and arrogant!
We would say it to your face, we are just to scairt that you would SHOOT us.
Well, we would!!
Listen, I had to DRAG it out of my poor customer. We have the best time together. He is a hoot! But very, very, overly polite. He says that Texans are big hearted behind all the swagger. But he loves living here now!
What we love even more, living in Niagara, is seeing the Americans, in July, come over the Rainbow bridge with SKIS, YES SNOW SKIS, strapped to their roof. It is 34 degrees(93 F) here today. The only snow you are gonna see is out behind the ice rink.
I use to live near Erie, PA, yes I know. Wife grew up in Oakville. OTHS, yes stuck up beyond belief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We use to ski, Hollimont/Holliday Valley depending on if a friend of ours could get is on to that little mound you call a mountain... we live in CO now, I was at 11,000 feet on Sunday... still snow up there.
NOW THAT made me laugh. Yea, we are threatening. What are we going to do, take away your hydro power(which BTW we sell to the States and then buy back for MORE money, sounds SMART doesn't it?). Are you all scairt of our USED warships that we bought from the British Navy? The ships that were 100 years old and full of holes? We are such LOSERS when it comes to Military equipment.
Our best military invention was the Avro Arrow and they got rid of it. DUH. STUPID.
We aren't owned by anyone. The queen may be on some of our "monopoly" money(argh, the next tourist who gets Canadian change and says, "Can I have some real money?" is gonna get a bop on the nose)but she doesn't OWN us.
We have become more Americanized lately though. We have had a real cultural shift. I had a hard time finding toys/DVDs for my boys that had ZED at the end of the alphabet instead of ZEE. Shudder.
yeah - funny - was typing a bit quickly = working in MS Project on another screen - have a bad habit of cutting out words - maybe ADD lol Another thing about Canadians - they live as far south as their citizenship will allow.
They dont congregate around Detroit and Buffalo for very long if on this side - most head for Florida and California and even Texas.
The joke is when Apollo 11 landed on the moon, there was a Canuck with a maple leaf on his backpack already there.
