2. At the University of Toronto I talked to a student there and I mentioned seeing the word "loonies" on a video game in a bar nearby. I told her that in America a loony is a lunatic, that the word means that someone is nuts. She said it used to mean that in Canada too, but the meaning changed when the coins were introduced.

a Canadian phrase that was made popular in America with the 1982 winter hit "Take Off!" by comedians Bob and Doug MacKensey. Geddy Lee of Rush provides the actual singing between "verses" that are pretty much spoken by the comedians. Bob and Doug would go on to more success with their Christmas hit, the movie "Strange Brew", and more.
Take off! To the Great White North. Take off!

In 1984, after the popularity of Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers skyrocketed thanks to the runaway success of it's 1983 TV commercial, which featured actress Claire Pellar asking the question "Where's the beef?", some men started sporting T-shirts that answered that question with the remark "Here's the beef!" as a joke.
When I was at a donkey basketball game I saw a man wearing a purple T-shirt that said in big letters the phrase Here's the beef! on it.
