How to Speak Canada

Were you planning to visit Mexicadia in order for tequila and fajitas and travel too far?
Are you stuck in Manitoba, Winnipeg, Saskatchewan or some other obscure name of a city/province with roaming homosexuals?
And, in answering these two questions, can you not understand the way these Maple-Leaf People speak?
No, it's not Mexican they're speaking. They're speaking "good" old-fashioned Canada.
Here I will teach you some of the main words spoken in this third world country

Eh(?): The most heard word in Canada. A question mark is sometimes used. It is used as in question of agreement or disagreement at the end of a sentence or is used to conclude a statement.

Washroom: Canadas use this word as another word for bathroom. The origin is still not found.

Pop: Another word for soda, in this continent.

Gitch: Another word for men's underwear. Much like "tighty-whiteys".

Mickey: A small amount of alcohols in which you carry in a small container. Many know how to use alcohol, in which you pour it out on a hard surface (like a table), cut up and snort. Also known for injecting with a syringe.

Safe: Another word for a condom.

Frog: A name for those pesky French-Canadians.

Homo Milk: Another name for homogenized milk. Not sure why it was necessary to shorten "homogenized" as I can understand that it would bring up much confusion in many situations.

Double-double: A phrase often followed after ordering coffee implying one wants two sugars and two creams.

Triple-triple: Much like double-double, but three sugars and creams instead of two.

Loonie: The name of what we would call a dollar.

Gorby: You might often hear Canadas refer to you as this as it is a name for a tourist.

Cashed: Meaning something is finished.

Hosed or Pissed: Drunk/high.

How's She Bootin'er?: Used in Newfoundland to say "How are you?"

Kay well :) I have never used 'eh?' except for when making fun of hard-core Canadians who use it
I have never heard of 'Gitch' 'Mickey' 'Gorby' or the 'Hosed or Pissed'

I agree with the Frog thing though  :)

AM A DRAYGUN PHONING
- tradiational canadian greeting

im pretty sure lady gaga says 'hosed' in one of her songs o.O

i used to say 'eh' quite a bit but toby would always get annoyed and i had to switch to 'hey' instead which apparently sounds less dumb, so now out of habit i just put 'hey' on the end of my sentences sometimes <.<  and ive heard 'mickey'. not gitch though.

YOU FORGOT CHESTERFIELD. im quite sure thats canadian. one time i decided thats what i would say instead of 'couch' from then on, but it only lasted a couple days then i forgot .=S its longer to say, idk why anyone would bother focusing on trying to remember that. other than me, ofc, but like, NOW so. not anymore.

ACTUALLY, upon just looking abck at the list, i think i use all of them except gitch, gorby, hosed, and the last phrase. (and frog cause thats not very nice :P though ive def herad it used )

also toonie. =]

You're forgetting one very important canadian slang.
Yaht.
Tobacco and weed.
aka a popper
My one true addiction

Jedikilla1 smoked weed once and it turned him gay.

Your mom smoked weed once, Then she took an arrow to the knee

Some how this is suppose to end up with her being in my bed.

Long story short I fucked your mom.

ive never heard 'yaht' or 'popper'. tobacco + weed = blunt

Kar wrote:

Wtf no. That is a spliff, you noob.

A blunt is when you hollow a cigar and fill it with illegal weed rocks.
