Happy Canada Day!!!

So, in honour of our wonderful holiday today I thought I would give you all a little Canadian humour on just what it is to be Canadian....some true, some not but funny nonetheless:)

What does it mean to be Canadian?

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

2.You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.

3.You drink Pop, not Soda.

4.You can do all the hand actions to Sharon, Lois and Bram's "Skin-a-ma-rinky-dinky-doo" opus.

5.You don’t care about the fuss with Cuba. It’s a cheap place to go for your holidays, with good cigars and no Americans.

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

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

8.You know that Toronto is not a province.

9.You brag to Americans that: Shania Twain, Jim Carrey, Celine Dion, Michael J. Fox, John Candy, William Shatner, Tom Green, Matthew Perry, Mike Myers, Neve Campbell and Pamela Anderson are all Canadians.

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

11.You know that the last letter of the English alphabet is pronounced “Zed”.

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

13.You know that when it’s 25 degrees outside, it’s a warm day.

14.You know how to pronounce and spell “Saskatchewan”.

15.You perk up when you hear the theme song from ‘Hockey Night in Canada’. (Alas, no longer. ;-( )

16.“Eh?” is a very important part of your vocabulary, and is more polite than, “Huh?”

17.Your Beer Case handles Are Big Enough To Fit Your Mitts

18.You know that we don’t all live in igloos and ride polar bears to work.

19.Every murder is reported.
20.You froze your tongue to something metal and survived to tell about it. 
I'm gone camping for the weekend to celebrate Canada Day! Have a great weekend everyone!
