Signs You Might Be Too Canadian!

Signs You Might Be Too Canadian!

You know all the words to "If I Had a Million Dollars" by The Barenaked Ladies, including the interstanza banter between Steven & Ed.

You watch MuchMusic constantly, in the hopes of occasional fleeting glimpses of The Tragically Hip.
You think there isn't enough Queen on our currency.
You send angry letters to the CBC demanding the return of the Hinterland Who's Who spots so you can finally find out what happened to the arctic ptarmigan in the winter.
You think Peter Mansbridge is sexy.

You stood in line for hours for Another Roadside Attraction tickets.
You killed your best friend for Another Roadside Attraction tickets.

Someone accidently stepped on your foot. You apologize.
You stepped on someone's foot. You apologize, then apologize for making them apologize.
You know who Foster Hewitt is.

As you know

As y'all know, Rick is Canadian ... so he can poke fun ...

But, I happen to have three or four Great Big Sea CD's.

Even though I live south of the border, I'm uncomfortable with you poking fun at them.

In my mind, they are almost, but not quite, as sainted as the Rankins (I have all their cd's ... including Cookie, Heather and Raylene's Christmas cd.)

Some things Canadian ... like the Great Big Sea ... should not be foder for jokes!

(Before anybody jumps me, I'm joking ... I'm joking! I do have many Great Big Sea CD's as well as all the Rankin CD's however. Even carry a complete set in the Suburban to listen to on long road trips!)

:laugh :laugh :laugh :laugh

Hi, Rick, yea I can relate

Some, if not all, of those ring familiar. (I'm really a native Californian, dude!)
My dad was born in Lucan, Ontario, and I still have a few distant relatives in Ontario. Anyone else know where Lucan is? Canadians are the nicest people in the world. (Oh, I know, there may be one or two who don't rate, but----)

Thanks for the fly-by.

Lucan

Lucan is right near highway #4 and in between Exeter and Denfield, about 30 miles north-east of London Ontario!


*How did I do? Gotta love Map-Quest!*:lol

Me, neither

I don't get any of it either, but I am really impressed that there are so many (pop culture) things I know absolutely nothing about!
