What is Poutine? Who was Tim Horton? And do dogsledders have to put money in the parking meter? All these questions and more can be answered here.

So do Canadians really say "eh" after every sentence? (Don't you love cultural stereotypes. You are labelled and judged accordingly. Crikey, gotta go, I gotta see a man about a wallaby, and after that im gonna drink a fosters and put a shrimp on the barbie) (no, not the barbi twins)

Why do all of the pot-bellied, middle aged Canadian men insist on wearing speedos when they go to Miami Beach?

1. Yes, we eat ice cream.

2. 'The Quebec' may one day be free, but if they do, I am going to launch a lawsuit asking for compensation for all the years of French class I had to take.

3. Yes, I say eh, eh? Just ask anyone who saw me oot and aboot at the SF crawl. 'Eh' is a linguistic extension of canadian politeness - saying 'eh' after a statment softens it by adding the nuance of 'do you agree?' so your statement doesn't seem so blunt and direct. Instead of saying 'Jimmy Buffet Sucks Weasel Balls' you can say 'Jimmy Buffet Sucks Weasel Balls, Eh?' - see, it sounds so much nicer that way.

4. Because all of the pot-bellied, middle aged American men insist on wearing Hooter's T-shirts and socks with their sandals when they come to Toronto.

5. I am a great supporter of the decibel system. Especially when it goes to 11.

Why is it that the Qubeckers are always wanting to jump ship from the rest of Canada and why is it that the rest of Canada can't vote to get them out of the Country?

Is Curling (The only Olympic Sport you can do while smoking)on TV there?

Do those White Bears only come out on trash night?

Tell us some Newfie stories!

6. They are trying to keep us away from their delicious Poutine.

7. Yes, curling is on TV. I have curled myself and do enjoy it, for reasons you have already mentioned.

8. Polar bears are far more interested in eating humans than their garbage.

9. A Newfie is walking down the street with a case of beer under his arm.His friend Doug stops him and asks, "Hey Bob! Whacha get the case of beer for?"

"I got it for my wife, eh." answers Bob.

"Oh!" exclaims Doug, "Good trade."

Why is the sport of Nude Curling not taking off like you'd think?

Is the CN Tower the height of 6 football fields, or 5?

Are the Canadians really massing on our borders, preparing to rush across (as William Shatner, Michael J. Fox, Monty Hall, Mike Meyers & Alex Trebek already have) as soon as you can convince us to put Mayonaise on French Fries?

Why do they put Canadian Bacon on Hawaiian Pizza?

Please post pictures of yourself or your family wearing your favorite touques, eh?

Who would win in a barfight: Honeymoon Suite, Platinum Blonde, April Wine, Loverboy or Bryan Adams with his wingman Corey Hart?

Milkwalker is a Vancouver milk carton mascot from the 1986 Expo.

Body: A milk carton with human eyes & mouth.
Arms: - Loooong E.T. type arms
Legs: Long jointed legs with webbed duck feet.

I swear to God.

I saved the milk carton - but God knows where it is - I will have to start digging....

My family is visiting Canada in February for my mother's 60th b-day. Can you recommend a hotel and restaurant?



In an unrelated matter, is it true that prostitution is legal up there?

10. 2 words: frostbitten nipples

11. The CN Tower is the height of 5 football fields. stacked end-to-end. Which means nothing to us, as we play hockey.

12. You can keep them. We don't want them back.

13. Because it tastes closest to SPAM(tm)

14. I have no photos of the type you are seeking handy, as it is 35 degrees c out right now. However here is a picture of my cousin Stephanie and her baby both in toques of sorts. I hope this helps, it's all I could find on short notice.
