Forget Rednecks... Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Canadians, during a recent appearance at Caesars in Windsor :

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 .
If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your friends, you definitely are Canadian and proud to be!!!!

And the hilarious thing is, they are all true for me!!!

I love the "Halloween costume over the snowsuit." A lot of it applies to us around here too.

Those are so funny!
When I think of Canada I can't help thinking of the Red Green Show. We love that show!

Sooooo... if I was only driving 80 km thru 1 foot of snow during a raging blizzard... :think: Does that mean I don't live in Canada? ;) :?

Judy - it depends entirely on whether or not you were flinching! {giggle}

Well...the only time I flinched was when a 20 car pileup happened in front of me outside of Montreal. :shock: Does that count?
