I’m a CANADIAN, eh

Canadians are quirky. We’re the only country I know of that names our currency something out of a cartoon. Our one dollar coin is called a Loonie and our two dollar coin is called a Toonie. The $1 coin ended up being called a Loonie because there is a loon (it’s an aquatic bird) on it.

You Know You’re Canadian If:
  1. You stand in “line-ups” at the movie, not lines.
  2. You understand the sentence, “Could you please pass me a serviette, I just spilled my poutine.”
  3. You eat chocolate bars instead of candy bars.
  4. You drink pop, not soda.
  5. You know what it means to be on pogey.
  6. You know that a mickey and 2-4’s mean “Party at the camp, eh?!”
  7. When there is a social problem, you turn to your government to fix it instead of telling them to stay out of it.
  8. You drive on a highway, not a freeway.
  9. You know what a Robertson screwdriver is.
  10. You know that Mounties “don’t always look like that.”
