Hi, hi! So I've been looking at funny things...about...maybe...Canada. I just thought these things were funny, being a Canadian myself. So anywho...The first thing is 15 Signs that you are talking to a Canadian. I'm not into sports at all so I don't like the sports aspect of this...Just saying...

1. We Are Completely Comfortable With The Term “Homo Milk”.
2. We Correct You When You Say “Soda”. (We say pop.)
3. We Are Offended When You Ask Us If We Know A Friend Of Yours Who, Coincidentally, Also Lives In Canada.
4. We Don’t Think “Legalizing Marijuana” Is A Debate.
5. We’ve All Rolled Up The Rim To Win. (Very true. *Sighs* The most I've won is a Timbit)
6. We’ve Been Jealous Of Someone Else’s Toboggan.
7. We Think ‘Beaver Tail’ Is Delicious. (It's a pastry. I can't eat them.)
8. Our Parents Have Tied Our Mittens Together With A String So We Don’t Lose Them.
9. We Were Raised, In Part, By Mr. Dressup. (I miss Mr. Dressup. :( I met him once though, before he died.)
10. We Grow Playoff Beards.  (Not The Women)  (Hopefully)
11. We Are Angry That We Can’t Watch The Same Commercials As Americans During The Superbowl.
12. We Know Where To Get Good Poutine.
13. When We Hear “In The Five-hole” And “Spending Some Time In The Box”, We Don’t Think Dirty.
14. We Give Directions Using Liquor Stores And Beer Stores As Geographical Benchmarks.
15. Canadians Never Think Anywhere Is Cold Outside Of Canada

So the stuff that was in brackets was what I had to say about the...whatever it is. Anywho, the next thing is 25 Signs That You May Be Canadian:

1. You're not offended by the term "HOMO MILK".

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

3. You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.

4. You drink Pop, not Soda.

5. You know what a Mickey and 24's mean, "party at the camp, eh!!!"

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

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

8. You drive on a highway, not a freeway.

9. You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers.

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

11. You get excited whenever an American television show mentions Canada.

12. You brag to Americans that; Shania Twain, Jim Carrey, Celine Dion & Mike Myers are Canadians. ... also , Alex Trebec, David Foley, Matthew Perry etc.etc.

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

14. You know what a toque is.

15. You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

16. You know that the last letter of the English alphabet is always pronounced "Zed".

17. Your local newspaper covers the national news on 2 pages, but requires 6 pages for hockey.

18. You know that the four seasons mean: almost winter, winter, still Winter, and road work.

19. You know that when it's 25 degrees outside, it's a warm day.

20. You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

21. You know how to pronounce and spell "Saskatchewan".

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

23. You are in grade 12, not the 12th grade.

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

25. You actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all of your Canadian friends! Then you send them to your American friends just to confuse them!

Then there's the whole Molson Canadian commercials about "The Code", but hey.

My name is Mary Hiashi, and I'm Canadian, eh.

Blessed be,
Miss Mary Hiashi
