Canadium (chemical symbol "Eh") is the lost 119th element on the Periodic Table of Elements. Canadium is similar in composition to gold, however it is not as pretty. Canadium is a shade of fluorescent beige, which helps contribute to the boringness of Canada. Canadium is also radioactive by nature, which is the leading cause of birth defects in Canada. This sacred element is said to make up as much as 34.2% of the land mass of Canada (with key areas in Manitoba and Nova Scotia). Once mined and processed, Canadium is said to be worth well over $12,341.98 an ounce, which seems to explain why Canada is very well off yet does nothing important. Canadium mining accounts for 12% of employment in Canada, and whole towns have sprung up around Canadium mines (see Ontario and Ottawa). According to News Week, there have been talks in the US Army of invading Canada to mine it's valuable Canadium resources, but such a plan has yet to be finalized. It has been said that Canadium also possesses the ability to produce poutine on command, make a health care genie appear, and in high enough quantities, can even cause the IQ of foreigners to drop down to a level that is on par with the average Canadian.
Karen: "Hey Bill, I found a lump of Canadium in the garden today!"

Bill: "Eh? Wow Karen, this specimen looks to be worth well over 130,000 Canadian Dollars! We can finally buy that new pack of chewing gum we have been so keen on purchasing!"

A special word for Canada.
I went to Canadia today!

The country directly north of the USA. Typically called "Canada" but we decided it must be "Canadia" and "Canadians" or "Canada" and Canadans" and "Canadia" sounds so much spiffier.
I have to go visit relatives in Canadia.

Noun. The way Canada SHOULD logically be spelled, if its reisdents are to be referred to as "Canadians". If "Canada" is the correct nomenclature, why are its residents referred to as "Canadians" and not "Canadans"? And, if we are to appropriate this linguistic protocol and apply it across the board, then why don't we Americans call ourselves "AM-mo-RICK-ians"? Besides, "Canadia" just sounds better, and lives up to the peaceful, majestic, and Utopian persona that it has taken on in the eyes of us Amorickians ever since our country got taken over by blustering, right-wing Imperialists. C'mon, "Nation Soon to be Formerly Known as Canada". Make it official. We all know you want to!
"Had there been proper medical procedures to correct severe cataracts in 1545, French explorer Jacques Cartier may not have missed the "i" in "Canadia" while transcribing his travelogue entries for posterity, and the grievous cosmic imbalance which ensues to this day may have been completely averted."

Country north of United States. Canada is a slang for this word.
Canadia Canada?
by JAmes September 22, 2003
Quite simply what the country Canada should have been called if the world was a logical place. Not to mention, Canadia sounds much more grand than Canada.
Canadia sounds much better than Canada.
