    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 ...

    Interesting though! Sorry to butt in...I am not Canadian, but there are certain things on this sites list that are "Canadianisms" that are familiar to this American...

    My family has always said housecoat for robe. Washroom is not an uncommon word here for bathroom. We have ketchup chips here, too. The Caramilk bar is here, too...except it's called Caramello (sp?) bar in the U.S. Oh, and I love the Barenaked Ladies!
    OMG! Maybe I'm really Canadian! :chuckle

    Je parle francais un peu. (Where's the darn cedille?) So I already knew what a serviette was. And having been to Canada (LOVE the beer, the land and the people) I can say, yes, everybody says "eh" at the end of their sentences. Americans just say "uh" a lot in the middle of theirs! Oh, and if you get lost in Quebec (yes, everyone here pronounces it Kwa-beck, not Kuh-beck) no one will acknowledge you if you speak English, so don't go unprepared...try your best to remember the French you took in High School and College and you may find your way back to the highway alright! (Yep, happened to me!)

    Cool thread!
    In Quebec and the US (at least anywhere I've visited) the iced tea is literally iced tea!!! Ours is composed of delightful sugary crystals that have nothing to do with tea. I was traumatized as a child when forced to drink the Quebecois the glace.

    You like cod tongues.

    You even know what cod tongues are.

    Purity is your brand at home.

    You put 'lasses on your toutons.

    You call everyone "b'y", even little old ladies.

    You know what GBS stands for.

    You're a little in love with Alan Doyle 'cause he's such a nice b'y and he's good to his mam.

    Somebody comes into the ED with a fishhook thru his eyelid and you don't even flinch.

    You laugh at the mummers.

    "Gotta get me moose, b'y!" makes sense to you.

    You like accordian music.

    Ditto bodhran and bouzouki.

    You can smoke cigarettes in a windstorm on the fishing boat.

    Can you tell I love Newfoundland?

    You know you are Canadian when:

    You carry groceries in a paper BAG, not a sack.
    You know what "skookum" means.
    There are only three seasons....fall, winter and road construction.
    When curling is something you do on ice, not with your hair.

    Viva la difference!
