Canuck Slang. Eh Hoser?

with 2 comments

I was surfing around Wikipedia and came across an entry for Canadian Slang words.

We often deride ourselves for lacking a readily defineable culture. While we may not be as creative cursers as the Brits or Aussies, we have a rich and vibrant lexicon of our own that speaks of a uniquely Canadian history, culture and sense of humour.

Here’s a sentence to test how Canadian you are:

Hey Hoser. Stop f*cking the dog, finish up your double-double and get over to Crappy Tire and pick up a tipper so we can finish off this swish.

Comprende?

  1. I think an equally amusing game is quoting “Strange Brew” – talk about proving your Canadian qualifications.

    “I didn’t know you could drive a 15 speed.”

    “Relax – it’s just like a 5 speed times 3. It’s a beer truck!”

  2. Very true Colin. On the topic, can you recite all of Bob & Doug’s 12 days of x-mas? Successful completion warrants the Order of Canada…and a beer (in a tree).
