You know your Canadian when..Part Deux

Procastinating..bite me:P

When abroad, you have a cold fear that somebody might mistake you for an American. You make a point of deliberately being kind to locals just to make it clear you are a Canadian.--> when I was in the middle east I had the Canadian flag on my backpack:P Still was asked if I was american..not impressed

You can play road hockey on skates. --> of course..who doesnt?

You know that Canadian Tire on any Saturday is busier than the toy stores before Christmas.--> Canadian Tire is just as fun as a toy store:P

You are in grade 12, not the 12th grade--.damn right

You've ever had your tongue frozen to something--> something and someone;)

Your local newspaper covers the national news on 2 pages, but requires 6 pages for hockey.-->*sighs* damn sens..

You know that the four seasons means: winter, still winter, almost winter, and road work/construction--> LOVIN IT!!

You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.--> totally had my cape enlarge to fit my jacket under it:P

You have at least one ROOTS sweatshirt that always smells like cigarettes and beer.--> more of ciggeretes, the neuro lab floor and coffee:P

You find it difficult to explain "milk in a bag" to non-Canadians, and even more difficult to describe the "snippy-thing" used on bag corners. (Bonus points if your collected snippy-things are stuck to your fridge.) --> I bite it off:P

You're pretty sure you can see Alex Trebek smirking when Jeopardy contestants get the "Canada questions" wrong. Even if you weren't sure of the answer yourself, you consider yourself a hundred times smarter than the idiots who always guess, "What is .. uh, Toronto?"--> I always know the answers to the Canadian questions

You pity people who haven't tasted a "beavertail".--> haram..let me know I will send you some..asap

Someone accidently stepped on your foot. You apologize.You stepped on someone's foot. You apologize, then apologize for making them apologize.--> always

You die a little inside if you can't get your Tim's double-double every morning.-->actually its one milk and one sweetener..x-large.. and more then a little dies:P

You know the difference between real snow and "television" snow -- the white stuff that passes for snow on tv and in films. You scream, "For Christsake! That should be sticking to their pants!" and "Lookit, it's not melting! That's *so* not snow!" when watching 'Winter' scenes--> soooo fake.. rat bastards

You steal stationery from your Government of Canada co-operative education placement because you figure you can find lots of uses for paper with 'Human Resources Development Canada/Développement des Ressources Humaines Canada' written at the top.--> well...I didnt really steal it per se..I 'borrowed' it:P

You know the ingredients for poutine.--> mais oui!

You can sing "O' Canada" in French and actually know what the words mean--> oui

You think Great Big Sea isn't Atlantic-centric enough--> messed me up pretty bad in geography man,

You talk about the weather with strangers and friends alike.--> yuppers

You laugh at Americans for going to jail for stealing cable, but laugh even harder when they get it for free in prison--> messed up man..

You have a Canadian flag that has a marijunia leaf on it rather then a maple leaf..--> hey it was pretty;)
