    You know you are a Canadian when you think Ron McLean and Don Cherry are the Canadian equivalent of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis

    You know all the words to "If I had a million dollars" by The Barenaked Ladies, including the inter-stanza banter between Steven and Ed.

    You know that a Mickey and 2-4's mean, "party at the camp, eh!!!"

    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.

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

    You've frozen your tongue to something metal and lived to tell about it.

    You somehow don't feel it's a bit hypocritical to measure distance in Kilometers and your weight in pounds

    You can imitate at least 3 different Canadian accents... Not counting Newfie

    You've plugged a car in overnight

    You use a tennis ball more for road hockey than for tennis.

    You don't know or care about the fuss with Cuba, it's just a cheap place to travel with very good cigars

    You know that the Friendly Giant isn't a vegetable product line.

    The mosquitoes have landing lights.

    At least twice a year, the kitchen doubles as a meat processing plant.

    Only in Canada......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

    Only in Canada......are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.

    Only in Canada......do banks leave both doors open but chain the pens to the counters.

    Only in Canada......do we buy hot dogs in packages of twelve and buns in packages of eight.

    Only in Canada......do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

    You understand the phrase, "Could you please pass me a serviette, I just spilled my poutine?"
    Oooooooh, my boyfriend goes up to Toronto sometimes to visit family and he is always raving about poutine!!! I gotta try that stuff!!!

    Ya mean Canada is not just another American state - runs VERY fast to nearest exit and hides:roll

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


    Goes doubly here - If I polled the average Aussie about if they cared about our PM having an affair the first reaction would be a glazed look followed quickly by "Eeeeeuuuwwww"

    I am bowled over by how much is common between us. Spelling, comedy (we seem to have a similar sense of humour) the half and half metric system/imperial system.

    Oh! and we both know who "HRH" is!!!

    - You substitute beer for water when cooking.

    - You know Casey and Finnigan are NOT a celtic rock band or inport beer.

    - You have at least 1 Roots sweatshirt that always smells like cigarettes and beer.

    - You've actually said, " stay where yer to, till I comes where yer at" (Newfie)

    You like to fool with non-Canadians by telling them about a friend of yours from Saskatchewan who happens to be half sasquatch ... or you tell people that one night you went drinking and went to look for sasquatch ...
