Have you ever watched "How I Met Your Mother"? They do their fare share of Canadian bashing on that show.

I admit that brought about a big old grin in the midst of this poor guy's drama and grief. Guess I am bad too.



God's Blessings,

AHEM toe tap

We most definitely DO get mad. When someone bumps into us we say, "EXCUSE ME." But most Americans don't catch the SARCASM. LOL

BTW themud, it is EH, not EY. Wht the heck is EY anyways?

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.

GOOD GRIEF!! I REST MY CASE!! In America when someone bumps into us WE KNOCK THEM DOWN!! duh!!

Only a silly, overly polite canuck would say "EXCUSE ME" when someone bumps into THEM. MrRollieEyes

You meant in Texas right? I am sure the Yanks act differently. Tehehehe.
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:34 PM
Scotty,

It depends on which end of the providence you are on, ey, eh, hey. It's a huge language barrier in our household. Teach the kids American or Canandian.

My husband's favorite Canadian joke:

How Canada got it's name. They put a bunch of letters in a sac and someone started pulling letters out. The first letter they pulled out was

"C, ay"

Then

"N, ay"

Finally

"D, ay"

Hence: Canada.

hehehe.

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.

BTW Mel, my aunt lives in Texas. laugh

GOH DARN IT PEOPLE YOU SPELL IT EH.

And yes, we tell that joke too.

People from the UP of Michigan sound just like Canadians. They even say "EH!"
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:43 PM
That's funny though because when they visit here(remember I live in Niagara Falls and I work in a MAJOR retail store), we can hear the accent. They hear ours too. laugh

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!
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:44 PM
Come on. I use to tell my wife it's like the McKenzie brothers and moose and beer.

Go forward 10 years and watching brother bear, I almost gave myself a hernia laughing when the moose turned out to be the M-brothers.
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:47 PM
I have outlaws on both sides of the country... and of course I meant province or Pro-vince.

It took years for my wife to say produce and process correctly... well worth the language lessons.
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:49 PM
We LOVE the Mackenzie brothers.

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. laugh

Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:54 PM
Scotty,

Exactly! English. I'm an American. I speak American!!! That is why we take English in school, to learn a foreign language... English.
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:55 PM
Would you like a spot of tea? Howe, 'boot those Blue Jays eh?

Isn't there a hockey team called the Flamers?
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:55 PM
Guess I should have a map in my pocket with directions to the Rockies then, eh?(see told you I do it. I left it in there just for you guys. laugh )

Also think it is great when people ask where our igloos are. Geez I never heard that one before. MrRollieEyes

Canada. The only good invention... Rush and Timmy's coffee
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:57 PM
I LOVE tea. Of course I drink it SWEETENED. laugh

I don't like baseball. laugh

And yes, we have a hockey team called the Calgary FLAMES.

Here's their website in case you need to buy some tickets. laugh
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:58 PM
Ah, yes. Calgary, the ugly stepson. Where the men can be men and the bulls are nervous.
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/15/10 07:59 PM
RUSH? Argh. NOT Rush.

Finger Eleven. Sum 41. Barenaked Ladies. The Tea Party. Our Lady Peace. THOSE are just SOME bands that I would have allowed.
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 08:00 PM
I saw the Barenaked Lads at a small bar in St. Louis before they hit it, yes good band.
Posted By: themud Re: themud - 07/15/10 08:02 PM
Brian Adams, April Wine, Jim Carey, John Candy... look at them. To top it off Michael J. Fox.

Scotty,

We know all about them. We have files on all 700 canadians and we are watching you. All those nuculear warheads up there. You guys are always threatening your harmless neighbors with strikes.
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/15/10 08:06 PM
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.

uh yes!! they are silly foreigners and we are not!! They are owned by a queen!
Posted By: Scotland Re: themud - 07/16/10 03:49 AM
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.

Good grief = whats with Canadian bashing

Moved down here to Dallas 30 yrs ago and still get comments on how I say organization and other words during conf calls.

Hang in there Scottie

btw - married a south jersey girl - let me tell ya - that philly accent is tough to drop.

My family is on both sides of the border and it is fun to tease each other. Its cool to see others with a mixed family have the same humour or humor,

Here is a more serious note - some dont realize that Canada has been in Afghanistan within months of 09/11 & hvnt shied away from dangerous missions.

I think that should be "What's with Canada bashing, eh?"

Besides, it's easier to spell than Minnesota...Dontchyano?










Posted By: rwinger Re: themud - 07/17/10 07:31 AM
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.
