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!
4. A typical newscast in Canada
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.
7. Journal-keeping in Canada
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.
9. Major headlines in Canada
Honestly, we’d be secretly thrilled if the government was putting maple syrup on the money.
10. Driving in Canada
Since everyone plays hockey, you’re bound to find a good hockey stick to push the cross walk button for you.
11. Wrong number texts in Canada
Everybody’s sorry. Really.
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?
13. Math problems in Canada
Only in Canada does the math story problem involve a rubber octopus and a hockey puck.
14. Skateboarding in Canada
It’s so cool, even the Canadian police do it too.
15. Agriculture in Canada
Even their animals are polite.
16. Horseback riding in Canada
Most often done on horses, moose or elk. You know, you just use whatever happens to be standing in your front yard at the time.
17. What protests look like in Canada
We’re all very sorry that this has happened. This looks like the most peaceful protest we’ve ever seen.
18. What romance is like in Canada
Nothing like a big elk kiss when you least expect it. People get mighty lonely during those long winter months.
19. Archaeology in Canada
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.
