Chuckle if Your Canadian

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Received this from my sister this morning and got quite chuckle out of it. Thought I would share it with you.

A Little Canadian Humour

Forget Rednecks, here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Canucks:

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you live in Canada.
If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Canada. If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Canada.
If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in Canada.
If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Detroit for the weekend, you live in Canada.
If you measure distance in hours, you live in Canada.
If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Canada.
If you have S witched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in Canada
If you can drive 90 kms/hr through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Canada.
If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you live in Canada.
If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in Canada.
If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit,you live in Canada.
If the speed limit on the highway is 80km -- you're going 90 and everybody is passing you, you live in Canada.
If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in Canada.
If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter,and road construction, you live in Canada.
If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in Canada.

If you have kept your Christmas turkey in the trunk of your car, you live in Canada.
If you find 2 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in Canada.

I'm not Canadian but I visited a friend in Canada a few years ago and I can believe it!!

It was early March, and things were kinda thawing down here, but not up there. It was below freezing all 5 days I was there. I learned how to do the "ice shuffle" to walk up the road to Tim Horton's, and the fine art of just getting into a store to warm up before trying another few blocks. Of course, I'm bundled up complete with scarf, mittens and hat (which I had to borrow from my friend) and he was walking around with his jacket open saying "oh, it's just a bit brisk today".

Oh course, the day after I left the sun came out and it actually got warm. Go figure.

Our four seasons in Michigan are: Early Winter, Mid-Winter, Late Winter and Next Winter! Road construction works too...especially I-75!

Ahh! The good ol Ice Shuffle! I'm so glad I live in a place where it's not really something I have to do all the time anymore!
