list is going around, apparently credited to Jeff Foxworthy though I'm doubtful of that claim.

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 jumper cables 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 95 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 .


and now it's time to add a few I'll start:
If you bump into a person and the person you bumped into says "i'm sorry", You may live in canada.

probably because you landed directly beside it :emot-parrot:

If you know a person who owns a gun that is actually used for hunting (and only for hunting)...

When you walk down the sidewalk and the person approaching you says, "Hi", you may be in Canada.

You may be Canadian if you are fiercely proud of the NFB, even though you are probably only familiar with "The Log Driver's Waltz". (And you know all the words! :P)

You cheer whenever Canada is mentioned in any sort of media, even if it's disparaging.

There was a thing in the local newspaper in Christina Lake (and by newspaper I mean a two page pamphlet) and it... You know what, I'll just find it, take a picture and upload it.

Very similar.

Sorry it's blurry, the app I use to upload resizes photos and makes them smaller...

I hope you try to edumacate 'em regarding the proper vernacular.

You have a intense "interest" in American Politics, while letting Canadian Politicians slip in through the back door,
