    Just so you’re aware, the rest of Canada finds Ontario to be unspeakably rude, relatively.

      Bite me.

    I can’t decide whether Morty and Saul ended up in a relationship or not. I mean, does the “only two” *neccesarily* imply that? I’m guessing that the past tense means they did. Frankly, neither looks remotely gay or into the other, but, hey, mazel tov, kids!

    Yours for the over-analysis of individual frames,

    Next up: The mottoes of Japanese prefectures.

    I have never been more proud of my Saskatchewan roots.

  5. Grant said, on September 18, 2009 at 1:25 pm

    Wow, Ces! So you HAVE been to Manitoba…

    Actually, our provincial motto is “Well, at least we’re not Saskatchewan”

    Bwahahahahaa! Having just completed a road trip from my adopted home of Vancouver to Calgary to Moose Jaw SK and back… ok, I would have laughed anyway. But now, I have more Canada under my belt.

    I’ve lived in Calgary. There are Jews in Calgary?

    Come on, we all live in Winnipeg.

    Brilliant. Call-backs and all. Brilliant.

    Awesome, Ces.

    Also ~ British Columbia: Hipsters who are kinda embarassed about their square Canadian brethren.

    There are enough Jews in Calgary that you can buy Chanukah candles at the Safeway, but not so many that you can get a decent loaf of challah without making it yourself.

    And in my experience, if you want to meet Jews, you just go to the University of Toronto, the only school I’ve ever heard of where you go to school on Remembrance Day, but there are no evening classes during Passover.

    You had me with the “Red Green” reference! Everything else was just icing on the cake.

    Hey, now, Nova Scotia also gave the world Ellen Paige! We’re the province that successful people come from, driven to live somewhere other than Nova Scotia.

    And PEI does have a decent reputation as being the home of Anne of Green Gables. They’ve tried putting in golf courses and stuff, but mostly it’s just tourists heading to the Green Gables house.

    Alberta also gave us Nickelback, so a pox on them.

    Also, Grant, I sense jealousy over our extra booze and cast members who can see.

    BC is known to the rest of the country as Beyond Canada.

    And va te faire foutre – go get f*cked – is more France French than Quebecois. I think they’d say
    va te crosser
    mange de la marde

  15. Narble said, on September 19, 2009 at 1:25 am

    As a Calgary resident I would like to apologize for Nickleback. To make it up though, Edmonton did give us SNFU.

  16. Lolsworth said, on September 19, 2009 at 3:29 pm

    Whatever happened to “va te faire encouler”?

  17. NoVan said, on September 20, 2009 at 1:49 pm

    @Narble: I’m sorry, a Calgary resident just complimented Edmonton? Have Israel and Palestine been taking notes?

  18. Ian_M said, on September 20, 2009 at 2:39 pm

    @ NoVan: The rest of us will purge Narble soon enough. Then that post will go down the memory-hole.

    Which one of y’all produced Céline Dion?

    I hate you for that…

  21. Ian_M said, on September 20, 2009 at 11:02 pm


    And they hate you too.

  22. Niall said, on September 21, 2009 at 9:56 am

    oh GOD, Ces, thsi is BRILLIANT!!! Had I been at home I’d have been waking the neighbours laughing. Yes, I’m Canadian, and this is hilarious. 🙂

    (Note: no one can make better fun of Canadians than Canadians, but Ces did such a good job, we’d make him an honourary Canadian!)

  23. Niall said, on September 21, 2009 at 10:00 am

    Lolsworth: “enculer” is 100% France french. Foutre could happen in Quebec, though it’s not as likely as the other examples above.

    Yes, we had enough of Céline and booted her off to Vegas or any other desolate place. If we suffer, the rest of the world will suffer too. But while some still like her, NO ONE likes her husband…

  24. Mollyscribbles said, on September 21, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    *sings ‘Forgive us, we’re Canadian’*

  25. rocketbride said, on September 22, 2009 at 10:34 am

    british columbia is more like the kid you used to be friends with in high school who’s one year older and dicovered pot in university, who still comes to your parties once in awhile and won’t stop fucking talking about how everything is better in university. when you’re high.

    great scenery, though.

    Funny, made this Ontarian drop his hacksaw….

    The national motto uniting all of us Canadians is – “It’s cold, eh?”

    There’s an online petition with 225 signatures begging Rush to come to Newfoundland on their next tour. If the signers’ comments are any indication, it’s been at least 20 years since they were there last. Time to move on?

  27. […] you want to learn about Canadians, go here. You’ll learn everything there is to know. Yes, I’m being sarcastic, but it is […]

  28. Paul Jones said, on October 8, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    There’s someone else I’d rather you not mention: Lynn Johnston and her anhedonic alter ego Elly “Flapandhonk” Patterson. As a Canadian, I’d like to apologize for “I HAVE NO HOOOOOOOOOME!!!”, “Where is he when you need him” and CHOMP-CHEW-GLUT-MASTICATE-EAT!
