You Know You're From Canada When...


You're not offended by the term, "Homo Milk."

You understand the phrase, "Could you pass me a serviette, I just dropped my poutine, on the chesterfield."

You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.

You drink pop, not soda.

You know what a Mickey and 2-4 mean.

You don't care about the fuss with Cuba. It's a cheap place to go for your holidays, with good cigars.

You know that a pike is a type of fish, not part of a highway.

You drive on a highway, not a freeway.

You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers.

You know that Casey and Finnegan were not part of a Celtic musical group.

You get excited whenever an American television show mentions Canada.

You brag to Americans that: Shania Twain, Jim Carrey, Celine Dion and many more are Canadians.

You know that the C.E.O. of American Airlines is a Canadian!

You know what a touque is.

You know that the last letter of the English alphabet is always pronounced "Zed" not "Zee".

You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

You know how to pronounce and spell "Saskatchewan."

You perk up when you hear the theme song from "Hockey Night in Canada."

You were in grade 12, not the 12th grade.

"Eh?" is a very important part of your vocabulary and more polite than, "Huh?"

Winter. Whenever you want it. And then some.

There's German food, Italian food, Chinese food, Armenian food, American food, but NO Canadian food.

You call a "mouse" a "moose".

You like the Americans a little because they don't want Quebec either.

Contests run by anyone other than the government have "skill-testing questions" that winners must answer correctly before they can claim a prize.

Everything is labelled in English and French.

Milk comes in plastic bags as well as cartons and plastic jugs.

Mountain Dew has no caffeine.

Correction: It's not a "touque", it's a "tuque"

You say 'aboot' not 'about'

There are more pages about Hockey than the news in the newspapers

You know what the plug at the front of the car is for

You can ALMOST understand what Jean Chrétien says

You know what are Tim Horton, Zellers and Canadian Tire

You have a canadian flag sowed on your backpack (unless you live in Québec)

You go overseas and insist that you are Canadian when people hear your
accent to make sure they won't think you are American

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Canada.

I don't think that I'll be going to the Bransle this month sis. I may have come down with a case of food poisoning.

I'm from Michigan and I drink Pop. After I moved to Georgia I had to watch what I said because if I said "Pop" to someone they looked at me like I had 8 heads.

Are you willing to take the last two of them back?

Mountain Dew has no caffeine.

So how do the caffiene addicts in Canada survive?

Hell no. YOU can keep Jim and Celine - please.

As for caffeine? My former gaming group used to drink Coke mixed with gatorade powder....

Purely Canadian sentences

After carefull research and trials, I've come up with a sentence that should be unintelligable to folks south of the border: "When I forgot my Gravol I barfed on the arbourite in the biffy."

Oh well, I could get a hobby...

Welcome to VanPoly!

You forgot to add the words "After I drank a 2-6 to the beginning of the sentence" ;)

And thanks for the welcome :)
