Oh, (hand in the air) I can translate part of it!!
Timmy's is Tim Hortons and if you roll the rim up, it has a free coffee, or donut or other such freebie. A jelly filled donut is a jambuster. Newfie is someone from Newfoundland and mummering is similar to going christmas caroling in the US, but except wearing garb and constumes. I do not know about the rest of the words, though... but not bad for a fudgesucker troll from under da Bridge here in da big Mitten...

Very sorry Frederick, but that is secret Canadian code. Unless you hold citizenship in Canada, you are not allowed to know what she is saying.

Hi: Des Nolan... I can't wait till they intro the $5. coin, then do away with the "Penny". It costs more than a penny to make a penny and we all know how Harper likes to "Pinch 'em" EH!!!

My 10 year old American born and raised nephew came to visit us in Turkey. We went into the market in town. After a while he turned to me and exclaimed "they don't speak American here"

I almost broke up for two reasons; one, because of his new insight that the rest of the world isn't just like America and two, I'd never heard the term "speak American" before

This is a great thread, really enjoyed it.

Pam pleased to say that your citizenship to the Great White North is being seriously considered but due to not getting it all I might suggest that a quick refresh of your high school french might be needed prior to final approval.
BTW to the rest of the country those of us on the west coast of BC are known as a Left Coast Tree Huggers

Frederick - you need to visit Canada more often! We could discuss the translation over a little beaver tail or poutine and a little double double or a two-four to wash it down, which ever you prefer.

I am proud to be Canadian, but I don't do Tim Hortons nor drink Molson.
I fail to understand the appeal of either of them.

I will grab a Timmies, but only if I am on the go and need a fix. I usually prefer a privately owned coffee shop if I can find one though. All this is rare though, because I brew at least 98% of all the coffee I drink.

As far as beer goes, I mix it up all the time, but never drink offerings from Molson. If that was my only option, then of course I would. It is not bad, it is just that there is sooooo much better.
