20 Ways Canada Is Different From The Rest Of Us


Canada must be a very interesting place to live.  Most of their country is barren frozen wasteland, and yet it’s such a lovely, peaceful place.  Canadians pride themselves on their neutrality and their kind attitudes– but we know their real secret. They live in a very snowy place that the rest of us can’t quite fathom.  Here’s 20 ways Canada is different from the rest of us.

1. This is what an Canadian car accident looks like

It wasn’t the fault of the bus– but the bus is still sorry about this whole thing and wants everyone to know it.

2. Going to a fast food place in Canada

You’ll notice the very snowy ground and also the assortment of tractors that are parked there instead of cars.

3. What graffiti looks like in Canada

They would never want to write out an actual swear word– so they only use the first letter.  Don’t want to offend anyone!

Snowmobiles and moose…that’s a normal day for us Canadians, eh.

5. What breakdancing looks like in Canada

It’s the specialized ice version.  Extra points if you don’t break any bones when you slip and fall and still make it showy.

6. Parking in Canada

When the snowplows push the snow off the roads, it goes right onto your car.  Good luck if you can get that thing out before spring.

You really don’t want to bother or upset anyone…even your own diary with your personal problems or struggles.

8. How to treat a robber in Canada

In America the guy would be dead on the spot before even getting inside a window.  In Canada, they decide to have a kind talk with the guy.

12. Syrup is serious in Canada

We’re amazed that 18 people were arrested for stealing syrup.  I mean, we know it’s good– but is it really that good?

We’re all very sorry that this has happened. This looks like the most peaceful protest we’ve ever seen.

Since everything is buried under snow, they spend more time uncovering things like cars and people, than buried treasure or ancient artifacts.

20. What a trap looks like in Canada

A true Canadian couldn’t resist the beer and wouldn’t even realize it was a trap until the hockey stick came out and the goal  came crashing down.
