TOTP - Top Ten More Canadian Misconceptions

Worst show ever, not the fault of the list - just some bad advice. Don't listen to this show. If you have other podcasts to listen to then spend half an hour on one of those instead:-

  • 10 - That it snows here in July.
  • 9 - That Toronto is the capital city.
  • 8 - That Canadians are so polite that we never swear.
  • 7 - That Celin Dion is Canadian.
  • 6 - That we end each sentence with the word 'eh'.
  • 5 - That the national animal is the moose.
  • 4 - Newfoundland are a bit slower than the rest of the country.
  • 3 - That there are no great Canadian podcasts.
  • 2 - That our national anthem is the lumberjack song .
  • 1 - That Canada is part of America.

We think we might have done this show already, sorry if we have!

Haha, it's pronounced "ay" not "uh" as in "That's quite the nice podcast there, ay?" Good show guys. I think I prefer it with the music, only because when you pause it, it sounds dramatic.

Also, Rocky was a flying squirrel.

Oh crummy! What a GREAT show. The dry humor was incredible! By taking someone’s suggestions and taking them quite literal is great!

On the flip side, I prefer your tried and true method, jingles and all!

Without your banter back and fourth the show would not be quite as interesting.

BTW, is a tea towel the same thing as a shot glass that are all over the American airports?

Another face-contorting bus ride home, boys. That was great ! My reputation as the No.22 Gyle to Ocean Terminal looney is now sealed. I've noticed that people will now stand rather than take the empty seat beside me...

It's just plain roobish!

You guys oh so deserve a voice message from me explaining proper Canadian terminology. For the record, Touque, is pronounced "Took", and is a knitted cap or beanie to keep your head warm in the winter. Behold http://www.rightsleeve.com/main.asp?page=category.asp~c=44

And as stated above, "Eh" is "AY" as in the first letter of the alphabet.

Just about pissed myself on the way home listening to it though. Could you guys maybe try speaking in a Spanish accent so I can understand the podcast better? It would be much easier to listen to if you spoke in the accent of our great Spanish Canadian conquerors. Ole!!

That was soooo funny! You really need to come and visit us here in Canada. Go to Niagara Falls it is the closest thing to Vegas. BTW, I went to Vegas last year. You should go and see the Blue Man Group, the fountain at Bellagio and Ceasars-Palace.

Great job gents!

I'm a French-Canadian living in South Korea teaching English! On the subject of swearing Canadians, almost any French-Canadian can compete against Russians in the swearing department.

Increase the peace

Hilarious,
The funniest thing is that they had no idea about any of these Canadian "traits". For that matter, they didn't seem to know much about Canada at all. Sorry Canada, you may be a big country but people don't know much about you because you have a national population that is less than that of Mexico City. I travel to Canada alot and hear frequent complaints about how ignorant Americans don't know everything about the great shining beacon of Canada. That said, Canada is a beautiful place with nice, hard working people (although I fear that they are going down the route of the French, which will ultimately make them a lazy, stagnant nation of unemployed people that resent eachother and everybody else)
