Some Canadian humour...

Thanks Star, Woody, Annie, Montana, etc. You keep us smiling. I thought you might enjoy some Canadian humour....

For us up here in the great white north we know who we are if...

You know what a touque is and you own one and often wear it.

Your truck or car has a cord and plug sticking out of the grill ... it's a block heater for those sub-zero (in Celsius) days.

You design your kids Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

The mosquitoes have landing lights.

You have more mileage on your snow blower than your car.

You have 10 favourite recipes for moose meat.

You've taken your kids trick-or-treating in a blizzard.

You think sexy lingerie is tube-socks and a flannel nightie with only 8 buttons.

You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car.

The local paper covers national and international headlines on 2 pages, but requires 6 pages for hockey.

The most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun.

Your snowblower gets stuck on the roof.

You think the start of deer season is a national holiday.

You head South to go to your cottage.

You frequently clean grease off your barbecue so the bears won't prowl on your deck.

You know which leaves make good toilet paper now that there are no more dollar bills.

You know 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, almost Winter and Construction.

You perk-up when you hear the theme from "Hockey Night in Canada".

You pronounce the last letter of the alphabet "zed" instead of "zee."

Proud to be Canadian
Cheers
Calimero

Well, Woody. As I said, I thought she meant tongue as well...

Who would have thought Cali was talking about a hat? How many times have we stuck our tongues on metal objects and gotten them stuck? (stop thinking non frozen)

I do not recall getting my hat froozen anywhere.

So Cali, Have you never stuck your tongue on metal? (and no I am not talking a cowboys belt buckle either...ho hoho)
Hey Star....I see there's a bit of confusion between touque and tongue..LOL¿¿ Happy to hear everyone has sorted out what a touque is ....I was starting to wonder what else y'all thought I might be referring to?? and yes I most definitely have gotten my tongue stuck on metal....a metal screen door to be exact I was about 6 or maybe 7 if memory serves me right....it was an honest mistake I was sitting at the back door of the house on the floor with my nosed pressed up against the glass of the porch door sobbing because I was grounded and not able play outside (I'll let you know what I did to get grounded another time that's a whole other blog..LOL) anyways so there I was sitting on the floor and there had been a fresh snow fall and the back pasture was very much in need of snow people...soooo as I sat there breathing on the window it began to fog up so I licked the window to clear the fog and my tongue connected with the metal trim around the window ....and WHAMMO.. there I sat with my tongue frozen to the door....LOL worst part was my brothers decided to the best way to resolve the situation was to open the door...OUCH!¿¿¿

Wow!? Our minds where going in all kinds of directions on what a touque was. After Cali's responce to Annie's question, my mind wondered off the staight and narrow path it is so used to?

Hey Girl

Now where might your mind have wandered off too? LOL¿¿

Love your Paso Fino...wonderful breed!!!¿ If you love trail riding...I recommend you add Canada to your list of places to ride...the Canadian Shield in the fall is magical.

Ok Cali,
I was forced to look up toque. I believe we refer to them as beanies. Wear them all the time in the winter. Hate it when it gets cold enough to have to wear them.

Hi Annie

A touque? No worries.. I'll explain...They come in different shapes and sizes and some are better than others depending on the quality.

Now who has that recipe for Woody's apple whatchyamacallit...I just spent 6 hours in a shopping mall and for me that is 5 hours and 45 minutes too long.

Oh, oh. Must be our northern accents as I know what a tougue is....

Must only happen with those in the extream cold who have stuck their tougue on something metal...

Ok Cali,
What the He** is a tougue?
Members Only
Yes, I have done that a few times...Than had to learn to heat the horse bits before putting them in...We used to put the bridles in our jackets (bits inside) to warm them. Now most of the people I know use hair dryers to warm them up first.

Its ok if you find us in the am. We do not mind. We may sound like we are bloggen and drinking, but it is usually a figment of our imaginations. Well, except for Woody...

He sent this card to me, by mistake, while he was here tonight. Than he begged me to send it back to you....

Nice to meet you sir...I wasn't "lurkin" I just can't keep up with all you night owls...must be that apple pie you folks are so addicted too...I'd read the blogs in the morning with my coffee. They are far more entertaining than the funny pages....I'd be happy to send you some moose meat but I don't think it fairs well in the post...LOL

Hey Star

Thanks for the welcome home ...Minnesota? I do believe that state is technically farther north than where I'm at...which means you know all about getting your tongue stuck on a metal pole...LOL

Calimero,

Welcome back, again, to the funny farm. I am sure that someone will rename you...LOL. I am still laughing at what you shared. Even though I know it is all true. I was raised in Minnesota and we have those same things happen...

For example, they call this snow??? Whoops. Never mind. Where did this picture come from? This is not the photo that I put up here. There are no mountains in Minnesota...hmmmmmm. Oh, well. Now I am in North Carolina. They "think" it gets cold here and shut down all the schools and government offices at the first sign of a snow flake.

Hay Cali,

Thank you for readin' the blogs, you cudda left some sign glad ye quit "lurkin'"...Seein' as how you get shocked by electric fences and think tube socks and flannel nities w/buttons is sexy you orta be real comfortable here...Grab a jar of Apple Pie and a bowl of chili set down and enjoy yerself...


P.S. Send me some Moose meat...

Woody -
how come you can drive a ground pole 3' into the ground, and it still won't shock, but stand there and touch both poles, and it will shock the sh** out of you. My feet are on top of the ground - makes absolutely no sense to me!
