How about:

Hey Hoser, howz it going? (a bit dated and never really used
by most Canadians -- esp. those outside of Ontario, but making
a revival in US based advertising, eh?)


You're welcome (since moving to the US I've noticed that no one here
says "you're welcome. When I say "Thank You" the only reply I get
is "uh-huh"... it bugs the hell out of me!)

The Social Contract
Rae Days

I could answer all of these, but will leave the fun for the Yanks.
I'll just add a few comments...

>Crappy Tire.
Minimum wage jobs for students (I worked there one summer that I would
rather forget...)

>Loonies and Toonies.
Perfect for making holes in the pockets of your pants due to their weight

aka "Death in a Bucket"...possibly the most cholestrol laden dish in
the world and usually served in a big paper bucket

Diva (who is called "the Frostback" by her boss....are any other Cdns who
