For the Canucks in the crowd...

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Canucks...

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May,
You may live in Canada.

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there,
You may live in Canada.

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
You may live in Canada.

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number,
You may live in Canada.

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Detroit for the weekend,
You may live in Canada.

If you measure distance in hours,
You may live in Canada.

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once,
You may live in Canada.

If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again,
You may live in Canada.

If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching,
You may live in Canada.

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked,
You may live in Canada.

If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them,
You may live in Canada.

If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit,
You may live in Canada.

If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km -- you're going 90 and everybody is passing you,
You may live in Canada.

If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow,
You may live in Canada.

If you know all 4 seasons:
Almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction,
You may live in Canada.

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car,
You may live in Canada.

If you find 2 degrees 'a little chilly',
You may live in Canada.

If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your Canadian friends & others,
You definitely live in Canada.

Or Oregon. Had a relocated Eskimo dive buddy who used to walk around the parking lot in shorts, a parka (hood down, shaved head), and unlaced work boots.

On the plus side, few people ever bothered him.

That's standard fall fashion in these parts! In the summer, we replace the workboots with Tevas...

Good Grief! Two Thanksgivings. Thank God for Wikipedia or I would have been lost. It's a bit like our (your) Halloween and the UK's Guy Faulks night.
