Default Canada

Now that Vancouver will be hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics, these are

some questions people the world over are asking! Believe it or not,

these

questions about Canada were posted on an International Tourism Website

(frightening). Obviously the answers are a joke; but the questions

were really asked!



Q. I have never seen it warm on Canadian TV, so how do the plants

grow?

(UK)


A. We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around and

watch

them die.



Q. Will I be able to see Polar Bears in the street? (USA)


A. Depends on how much you've been drinking.



Q. I want to walk from Vancouver to Toronto; can I follow the Railroad

tracks? (Sweden)


A. Sure, it'* only four thousand miles; take lots of water.



Q. Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Canada? (Sweden)


A. So it'* true what they say about Swedes.



Q. It is imperative that I find the names and addresses of places

to

contact for a stuffed Beaver. (Italy)


A. Let'* not touch this one.



Q. Are there any ATM'* (cash machines) in Canada? Can you send

me a

listof them in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Halifax? (UK)


A. What did your last slave die of?




Q. Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Canada?

(USA)


A. A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe.


Ca-na-da is that big country to your North . oh forget it. Sure,

the hippo

racing is every Tuesday night in Calgary. Come naked.



Q. Which direction is North in Canada? (USA)


A. Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you

get here

and we'll send the rest of the directions.



Q. Can I bring cutlery into Canada? (UK)


A. Why? Just use your fingers like we do.



Q. Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)


A. Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which

is . oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every

Tuesday night

in Vancouver and in Calgary, straight after the hippo races. Come

naked.


Q. Do you have perfume in Canada? (Germany)


A. No, we don't stink.



Q. I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth.

Can

you sell it in Canada? (USA)


A. Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.



Q. Can you tell me the regions in British Columbia where the female

population is smaller than the male population? (Italy)


A. Yes, gay nightclubs.



Q. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada? (USA)


A. Only at Thanksgiving.


Q. Are there supermarkets in Toronto and is milk available all year

round?(Germany)


A. No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter / gatherers.

Milk is illegal.



Q. I have a question about a famous animal in Canada, but I forget

its

name It'* a kind of big horse with horns. (USA)


A. It'* called a Moose. They are tall and very violent, eating

the

brains of anyone walking close to them. You can scare them off by

spraying

yourself with human urine before you go out walking.



Q. Will I be able to speak English most places I go? (USA)


A. Yes, but you will have to learn it first.

I moved to Canada from England when I was 6 years old. I was thrilled to tell anyone who would listen that I was off to live in a log cabin and see lots of Indians. My Grandparents were less than thrilled when I mentioned it to them at Sunday dinner, my parents hadn't said anything yet.

Misconceptions arise fairly easily.

Cheers,

Huh? The Queen of England is still technically recognised as Canada'* head of state, although in reality this has little impact.
