Hey fellow Canadians I just noticed there was a thread like this for people living in the UK, so why not create one just for us to discuss all-Canadian things?

Hehe, I found this the other day I can't say I got all of it but it was pretty funny !

You know you're Canadian if...


When there is a social problem, you turn to your government to fix it instead of telling them to stay out of it.

You're not sure if the leader of our nation has EVER had sex and don't want to know if he has!

You get milk in bags as well as cartons and plastic jugs.

Pike is a type of fish, not some part of a highway.

You drive on a highway, not a freeway.

You sit on a couch not a chesterfield - that is some small town in Quebec !

You know what a Robertson screwdriver is.

You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers.

You know that Thrills are something to chew and "taste like soap".

You know that Mounties "don't always look like that".

You know that Casey and Finnegan aren't a Celtic music group

You participated in "Participaction"

You use a red pen on your non-Canadian text book to fill in all the u's in labor, honor, and color

You are excited whenever an American tv show mentions Canada

Back bacon and Kraft dinner are two of your favourite food groups

Your local newspaper covers the national news on two pages, but requires six pages for hockey.

You know that the four seasons mean: almost winter, winter, still winter, and roadwork.

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

You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

You know how to pronounce and spell "Saskatchewan." (Sas-Kat-chew-wan)

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?"

You actually understand these jokes and forward them to all of your Canadian friends!

BORN in Toronto, although I reside in Hong Kong now. My citizenship is Canadian even though I have a permanent resident status in Hong Kong.

You know you're canadian if you'd rather go to Canadian Tire and Home Depot instead of Barney's New York (AHEM, *cough*dad*cough*)
