Sh*t Americans Say to Canadians
I’m putting my stamp of approval on this video as an American! You will not believe how little Americans know about Canada!
Okay so it’s brain dead Friday. That means video time on How’s It Going Eh!!!!! Like when parents are too exhausted to deal with their kids + they just pop in Cinderella or Cars into the DVD player.
I know this “Sh*t so+so Say…” series is played out, but I don’t care. I’ve seen a couple other videos about sh*t Americans say about Canada, but this one gave me a hearty guffaw!
I mean, you should hear the things people would ask me about Jeff when we were first dating.
Q: “What kind of food does he eat?”
Me: “Only moose + caribou.”
Q: “I hope your boyfriend’s okay I heard there was an earthquake in Canada!”
Me: “Ummmm, Canada is kind of big. That’s like asking someone in California if they’re okay when there was an earthquake in New York!”
Q: “Does he have an accent?”
Haha, take it easy Canucks! I know you are going to say, “Hey!!! YOU guys are the ones with accents!!!!”. Simmer down, simmer down. And by the way, some Canucks get angry + say, “Not all of us say ‘aboot’!!!!”. Sorry to break it to you guys but every Canadian I’ve ever met pronounces it “aboot”. Americans say “abOWt”.
And I like to list off the different provinces to Americans. Their minds get blown. Though I must confess, I didn’t know much about Canadian geography myself! Heck what am I talking about? I can barely list off all 50 of the American states – but don’t ask my five year old self, I’d knock all of them off in no time!
One time I was on a flight sitting next to a Canadian. We exchanged stories + he told me friends from America were coming to visit + the wife asked him if they sold diapers where he lived. OMG.
Hope y’all have a great weekend!!!!
