    Oi, Tara leave us brits alone!
    *helps stackky in the kicking*

    Oh and I get about 8 of the 25, so does that mean I am small part canadian? Instead of the hockey night theme I guess we brits would perk up at the theme to Match of the Day

    Oh and Z is pronouced Zed. For the Americans think about it, the language is English so the english know how it is pronunced properly, so learn it properly

    Yeah, but around here, French people mix the English language and the French language together. :p

    Which, is what I was refering too, but yes the mix is kind of odd. Parisian (real) French is much better!

    1.You're not offended by the term "HOMO MILK."

    Nope, I'll just stick to my fat-free, thanks...

    2. You understand the phrase "Could you pass me a serviette? I just dropped my poutine on the chesterfield."

    Just because I understand it doesn't mean I use all those funny words!

    3. You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.

    Nope...still eat candy bars!

    4. You drink Pop, not Soda.

    How can you drink a sound?

    5. You know that a Mickey and some 24's means "party at the camp, eh!!!"

    Um, sure..."b!"

    6. You don't care about the fuss with Cuba. It's a cheap place to go for your holidays, with good cigars.

    Go to Cuba? I don't think so! Down with Castro!! Free Cuba!

    7. You know that a pike is a type of fish, not part of a highway.

    You can go fishing for highways?

    8. You drive on a highway, not a freeway.

    I don't have a problem calling them highways so much as I want to call them Interstates...

    9. You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers.

    Well, in my wallet, anyways...

    10. You know that Casey and Finnegan were not part of a Celtic musical group.

    Ok...baseball players or beer makers?

    11. You get excited whenever an American television show mentions Canada.

    Yep...ya caught me on that one...

    12. You brag to Americans that: Shania Twain, Jim Carrey, Celine Dion,
    John Candy, and more... are Canadians.


    No, I don't...I brag because they had to come into America to make money!! :p

    13. You know that the C.E.O. of American Airlines is a Canadian!

    Go figure...no wonder AA is going down! ;)

    14. You know what a touque is.

    What's a threeque, then?

    15. You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

    Why not just go as a snowsuit?

    16. You know that the last letter of the English alphabet is always pronounced "Zed."

    You're using the term "always" a little too loosely here...

    17. Your local newspaper covers the national news on 2 pages,but requires 6 pages for hockey

    Nope...2 pages for national news, six to cover all the crimes in the county...

    18. You know that the four seasons mean: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road work.

    Yep...yep, I do...

    19. You know that when it's 25 degrees outside, it's a warm day.

    Gotta love Celcius

    20. You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

    Hehe...hehehehehe...HAHAHAHAHA!!! [face_laugh]

    21. You know how to pronounce and spell "Saskatchewan."

    Actually, I do! I shocked myself and Ryan one day when I actually wrote it right! AND I can spell Nauwigewauk! :eek:

    22. You perk up when you hear the theme song from 'Hockey Night in Canada'.

    If I thought I could recognize it right off, then I probably would...

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

    Actually, I'm a college graduate

    24. "Eh?" is a very important part of your vocabulary, and is arguably more polite than,"Huh?"

    "Eh" is only an important part of my vocabulary when it is proceeded by "c" "d" "e" "f" "g", etc.

    25. You actually understand these jokes.

    Do I get a medal? Maybe free Canadian citizenship?

    Well, since Tammy's going through them, I will too. :p

    1.You're not offended by the term "HOMO MILK."

    Of course not. But I drink 2%. :p

    2. You understand the phrase "Could you pass me a serviette? I just
    dropped my poutine on the chesterfield."


    What's complicated about that? :confused:

    3. You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.

    Of course. Call them what they are. :p

    4. You drink Pop, not Soda.

    My favorite pop is cream soda :p

    5. You know that a Mickey and some 24's means "party at the camp, eh!!!"

    I don't drink, but I know what those are.

    6. You don't care about the fuss with Cuba. It's a cheap place to go for
    your holidays, with good cigars.


    It's just silly.

    7. You know that a pike is a type of fish, not part of a highway.

    Driving on fish? That would be messy.

    8. You drive on a highway, not a freeway.

    Well yes. There's nothing free with gas prices these days. :p

    9. You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers.

    My parents do. I don't have a kitchen. :p

    10. You know that Casey and Finnegan were not part of a Celtic musical group.

    They ruled! (For all the Americans, they were a girl and a dog, puppets on Mr. Dressup)

    11. You get excited whenever an American television show mentions Canada.

    Very guilty of this. I once listened to the background noise instead of the dramactic scene because the last thing said before they tuned out the meeting was "About our Canadian holdings..." :p

    12. You brag to Americans that: Shania Twain, Jim Carrey, Celine Dion,
    John Candy, and more... are Canadians.


    Well, I don't brag about Celine...

    13. You know that the C.E.O. of American Airlines is a Canadian!

    Now I do! :D

    14. You know what a touque is.

    I love my touque!

    15. You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

    You mean some people don't? :confused: It always snows by the end of October!

    16. You know that the last letter of the English alphabet is always
    pronounced "Zed."


    Except on American Sesame Street, because they're silly.

    17. Your local newspaper covers the national news on 2 pages,but
    requires 6 pages for hockey


    No, they consider hockey to be national news. :p

    18. You know that the four seasons mean: almost winter, winter, still
    winter, and road work.


    They sure are.

    19. You know that when it's 25 degrees outside, it's a warm day.

    Beach time! :D

    20. You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

    Love 'em. What's illogical about them?

    21. You know how to pronounce and spell "Saskatchewan."

    Have since grade three. :p

    22. You perk up when you hear the theme song from 'Hockey Night in
    Canada'.


    Naturally

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

    Well, I was last year. :p

    24. "Eh?" is a very important part of your vocabulary, and is arguably
    more polite than,"Huh?"


    Not to mention more musical. "Eh?" has that lovely lilt while "Huh" sounds like a goose honking. :p

    25. You actually understand these jokes.

    [face_laugh] They're so funny!
