Am I Canadian?
 
Here's why I ask the question.

I don't watch Hockey. Don't hate it, just not a fan.

I don't like Canadian Bacon/AKA Back Bacon. Bleh. Give me those crispy strips of true bacon anyday.

I don't normally drink beer, but when I do I drink Dos Equis. Stay thristy my friends. No really though, much prefer just about any drink to beer.

I don't say "Aboot" and don't use the typical Eh or Budday that southpark has laden us with.

I use maple syrup on my pancakes because it is much better than corn syrup, not because its the Canadian way.



However I can be over apologetic.

Help me, I'm suffering a nation identity crisis! :p

Look, People have ot get this stright,

there is back or streaky bacon, if you get the full rasher you get both. both are good but only when very thinly cut.

Sweet cure, then smoked, bad for me? yes. delicous beyond all resonable mesures? Oh god yes.

Corban, you sound canadian to me.

Isn't it only newfies that say aboot anyway?

only when you feel the urge to vote republican and own more guns than underpants should you worry.

EXACTLY stereotypical Canadian? No.

Canadian? Yes.

So go guzzle some more syrup and eat another pancake, before you cut down a tree.

Do you still end every sentence with "eh?"
Do you use the word "hoser" ?
Do you think "hoser" is a real word?
Do you believe Canadian bacon to be in fact bacon and not a malnourished pork chop?
Does your insurance company offer moose collision coverage?


If you answered yes to one of more of these you are in fact 100% pure Canadian.

That's what happens when two funny americans realize that the standard Canadian stereotypes aren't funny enough and come up with some new ones.

4. You drink Pop, not Soda.

Your sounds aren't very Canadian sounding. Only sometimes.

And for those of you who don't speak Erica, my sister translates this to, "your accent isn't very strong, but you still have one."
