I AM Proud to be Canadian, eh!

My friend Mary sent this to me, this is particularly true where I live, in Muskoka Ontario, Canada,Here is what Jeff Foxworthy had to say about Canadians during a recent appearance at Caesars in Windsor:

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from
September through May,

You may live in Canada .
If someone in a Home Depot store
Offers you assistance and they don't work there,
You may live in Canada .
If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
You may live in Canada .
If you've had a lengthy  telephone conversation
With someone who dialed a wrong number,
You may live in Canada .
If 'Vacation' means going anywhere
South of Detroit for the weekend,
You may live in Canada .
If you measure distance in hours,
You may live in Canada .
If you know several people
Who have hit a deer more than once,
You may live in Canada .
If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C'
In the same day and back again,

You may live in Canada .
If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow
During a raging blizzard without flinching,

You may live in Canada .
If you install security lights on your house and garage,
But leave both unlocked,

You may live in   Canada .
If you carry jumper cables in your car
And your wife knows how to use them,

You may live in Canada .
If you design your kid's Halloween costume
To fit over a snowsuit,

You may live in Canada .
If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km --
You're going 95 and everybody is passing you,

You may live in Canada .
If driving is better in the winter
Because the potholes are filled with snow,

You may live in Canada .

If you know all 4  seasons:

Almost winter, winter, still winter,
And road construction,
You may live in Canada .
If you have more  miles
On your snow blower than your car,
You may live in Canada .
If you  find -2 degrees 'a little chilly',
You may live in Canada

  1. What’s really funny about this list is I’ve seen basically the same thing (any kilometers replaced with miles, a few other small changes) referring to New England, where I grew up. I guess we’re really not that different 😉
