    Everything I know about Canadians is based on the documentary series
    "Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties."
    You guys have one civilised city which is Toronto right? And everything else is polar bears, moose, and Inandout natives. Or Inuit?
    Maybe it is just my luck but every Canadian I ever met online turned out to be not sane, to put it kindly. Coincidence?
    Were you born in an igloo?
    Why did you guys make Justin Bieber your PM? That was impetuous, but gutsy I suppose.

    I've had people remark how it must be cold in my house because I obviously live in an Igloo. I find some Americans just don't understand that Canada isn't much different from the US in terms of living conditions.

    Others state that I'm too nice, and it must be a Canadian thing.

    Some people really focus on the fact that because I'm Canadian I must say "aboot" every time I say "about", I don't, but it doesn't stop people from teasing.

    During the summer when I remark to people that it's almost 30 outside, they go "Gosh that's pretty cold, what's your problem?". Confusing Celsius for Fahrenheit.

    I think that's about it.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Haha same! I booked hotel rooms for a living many years back and my “Canadian accent” was all too apparent. I live in NB and they could never figure out how I didn’t know so and so from Toronto. OR they would assume, very confused, when I said I was from New Brunswick I mean New Brunswick, New Jersey

    Lol. While not in the States, I was just over the border between England and Scotland and was wearing a "Hamilton Tattoo" t-shirt. I had to gas up the little Renault car and didn't realize that I was in Hamilton, Scotland.

    The young lass at the station asked me, "When did Hamilton have a Tattoo?" She didn't quite understand that there was another Hamilton...in Ontario, which was were I got the t-shirt from during a Tattoo at Copps the year before.

    See? This would be funny if I was Canadian. I'm guessing no one was referring to Alexander Hamilton.
    One of my ancestors was a McDonald (not the clown) so I may have to possibly slay someone from any clan who has an issue with the McDonald folks.
    I had no idea Renault was still in business.

    Aye, well nice to see another descendant of the Donald (I'm a member of Clan Donald) - my grandmother was a MacDonald from Dingwall just outside of the Black Isle.

    I think her brother had it the worst, well if he had been born in today's times...he was Donald MacDonald.

    I've even played my bagpipes in the Valley of Glencoe, trying to lure the Campbells out of their dens. No Campbells but was one hell of an awesome time.

    And the Renault car: that was back in 1998 when I was in Scotland.

    Slainte :)

    @DeathHand You should upload a video of you playing bagpipes. So cool!
