    These questions about Canada were posted on an International Tourism
    Website and obviously the answers came from a fellow Canuck.

  • you what i like about those canadians, they dont make generalizations about people. they are too busy playing hockey, or putting maple syrup on their bacon

  • Great jokes…


    …or whatever!

    I enjoy butting heads with YOU PEOPLE on the forums.

    Unfortunately, my only personal and financial interactions with Canadians caused me to create a new bad word … Canigger. My friends love it, but I now regret my creativity!

    The Remorseful American…

    :oops: … I mean USian.

  • @Janus:

    you what i like about those canadians, they dont make generalizations about people. they are too busy playing hockey, or putting maple syrup on their bacon

    I know I was warned awhile ago about “no killing and stuffing forum members” but please, please? I started volunteer work this week…I figure since I’m contributing to society much more then before, I should be able to kill someone every once in awhile.

    (still no direct threats up there 😉 was I hinting at killing Janus though? I’ll let you be the judge -mwaa ha ha ha- )

    But back to CC’s post! lmfao “milk is illegal” I like that one :lol:

    “There are 2 things I can’t stand…people who are intolerant of other people’s cultures, and the DUTCH.”

  • woohoo… great jokes!

    I know a nice one also: You can get tshirts in Vienna, which have a drawing of some mountains and a cangaroo on it with the words:
    “There are no Cangaroos in Austria” …

    so much for the hippo racing and the choir 🙂 (and if i come to see those, will all the attending women also be naked ??? :D)

  • so much for the hippo racing and the choir (and if i come to see those, will all the attending women also be naked ??? )

    I wanna know if the hippos are naked! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  • F_alk,
    NO kangaroos in Austria? I think they’d really like it there… All that mountain hopping and kicking the guys in those cute shorts… :roll:

    My favourite t-shirt is the one with “everything I learned in college…” on the front and on the back 20 different mixed drinks named and the University classes that they covered. (Hiccup!)

    My second favourite t-shirt has Wylie Coyote holding Road Runner by the throat and saying, “Beep beep your *ss!” (Oh, yeah!)

  • Eh?

  • eh what yanny? what kind of post is that

  • “Eh?” Ooohhh I certainly know why he put it! I went to an international school in Holland, and I was the only Canadian for a little while. lol and everyone makes fun of each other there, so of course I had to put up with the whole “Eh?” thing… ah yes, and how could I forget the “does Canada even HAVE toasters?” etc 😉

    But I don’t even say ‘eh’! My brother, my cousins, and my mom all do though. Damn them, justifying ur jests at Canada. And Janus man, I’m no administrator here and maybe it’s not my place to say it, but think before ya type! Unless you’re trying to act like that.

  • you can say whatever you want ctm, just like everyone else can on this forum (or should be able to at least <cough>yanny <cough><cough>) but when what you say pisses me off, im gonna let you know</cough></cough></cough>
