we do say eh on occasion, but hey at least we dont have southern accents eh? can take a joke. and only the male gender have penis's. somthing new to you yanks.
oh and by the way americans have french speaking states too.
Mike: "I didn't know they let canadians fly US Air.."
Morgan Freeman: "I am god."
Paul: "God is canadian? Since when?!"
Todd: "Mannnn this cereal is the shit!!!"
John: "Silly canadians, trix are for kids!"
Note that the above applies only to English Canadians. A French Canadian, be they Québécois, or French Canadian from any other province, is proud of their cultural identity, and their language.
Canadian: I'm from Canada
Frenchman: Oh, so basically you are American?
Canadian: No, I'm English, Welsh, and Italian.
People from other countries commonly stereotype Canadian culture, though usually as a joke, but, sometimes taken seriously.
The most common stereotypes include:
-Living in igloos
-Saying "eh" a lot
-Being overly nice
-Mispronouncing words such as "house", or "about". ("Aboot, Hoose".)
-Being good at hockey
-Having a unique french accent.
-Having a horse-mounted police force
-Lack of military
-A love for maple syrup
-and so forth.
Many sterotypes hold some shred of truth, as every stereotype does.
-The Canadian military is miniscule in relation to it's land mass, though it is able to do it's duty without problem, in and out of the country.
-How Canadians speak depends on the province. Newfoundlanders (or Newfies) in particular.
-The general interest in hockey seems to be higher in Canada, though the lack of teams make it difficult to win a Stanley Cup.
Canadians are usually portrayed in the media as nice people with funny accents, occasionally riding a moose, wearing a toque, and emphasizing "eh" whenever possible.
In the end, Canadians are the same as Americans, and patriotism ruins it.
Everyone else can think of them as an American who happens to speak french.
This is assuming that American media has had a larger effect on the concerned party.
