Common way a Canadian would say "a boat"--this can cause confusion for an American who would decipher it as "a boot" (as in cowboy).
American: "What the fuck is an ironclad?"
Canadian: "I don't know...aboot?"
American: "What? Like a shoe!"
Canadian: "No dumbass, like a yacht, a ship, a canoe, a bark, a schooner, a barge, a raft, a sloop, a cruiser..."
American: "Wha?"
Canadian: "Forget it."

How canadians say about, despite protests to the contrary.
Clever American: Come on say it again it is funny.
Dumb Canadian: No, I am not going to say it!
Clever American: How about some american currency to change your attitude?
Dumb Canadian: American Currency! Aboot, Aboot, Aboot Aboooooooooot.......

Way that All Canadians pronounce ABOUT, but piss and moan about it saying they don't.

Even though they do.

Always.
Canadian who thinks he is clever: You idiot, we don't really say that.
Average American who knows better: What is it you don't say?
Canadian who thinks he is clever: Aboot.
Average American who knows better: Ahomosayswhat?
Canadian who thinks he is clever: What?
Average American who knows better:
Aww, I got some gum on my pants.
Canadian who thinks he is clever:
Where?
Average American who knows better: What's the capital of China?
Canadian who thinks he is clever: Um... Beijing?
Average American who knows better: yessss.....
