You know you are a Canadian when:

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Canadians, during a recent appearance at Caesars in Windsor :

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Canada .

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Canada .

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Canada .

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Kelowna for the weekend, you may live in Canada .

If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Canada .

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Canada.


If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you may live in Canada .

If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you may live in Canada .

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Canada .

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Canada .

If you design your kid's Halloween costume tTo fit over a snowsuit, tou may live in Canada .

If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km -- you're going 95 and everybody is passing you, you may live in Canada .

If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you may live in Canada.


If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction, you may live in Canada .

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you may live in Canada .

If you find -2 degrees 'a little chilly', you may live in Canada.

Meh. An accident of birth. I'll take it, and there's worse things to be, but I can't really take pride in a complete non-accomplishment. I stubbed my toe getting out of bed this morning and I didn't cry. The event didn't inform my sense of pride one little bit. Rob and Doug Ford, Justin; Bieber and Trudeau, the riot in Vancouver over a fucking hockey game, the residential school system, Alberta Oil Sands, the murders of aboriginal women. There's enough to keep us humble, if you ask me.

I agree. Where we are born isn't a matter of pride. It's an whim of fate. Oh well, who said "pride" is logical?
lol!

Not an accident of birth for me. My parents chose to immigrate to Canada. And, I am proud to BE a Canadian. I didn't say I was proud of ALL Canadians. The duds are everywhere on the planet.

Well, if you had any influence, pre-conception, on your parents decision to emigrate, then surely you could have done something about Bieber.

I doubt anyone can do anything about Bieber. LOL. I can't atone for things others did before my birth. Currently, I can't even vote to get crappy politicians out of office. But reading Oatsie's list made me laugh and reminisce.
Here's some additions to that list...
If you wear socks with your Birkenstocks when there's a foot of snow on the ground, you may live in Canada
If you apologize when somebody steps on your toe, you may live in Canada.

I have a good friend who's a Canadian but has lived in Mexico for years, due to her work. She would agree with all the sentiments above with a chuckle. Very Happy

My wife's son lives in Dawson City and has been known to wear t-shirt and shorts in Spring. In Dawson it's -20c in Spring. Something in the water, maybe.
