This afternoon a friend of mine heard I was planning to visit family.
He asked me, "Do you guys have products in Canada?"
I said, "Oh, yes. We use them all the time just like regular people."

A store clerk in Tennesse asked me, "Where are y'all from"? When I replied, "I'm from Canada", she asked, "what state is that in".

I am very curious about the background of this myth (or story).

I asked the guy who thought Canadian soap smelled funny, and he said he was washing his hands in a couple of restrooms in Toronto and he thought the soap smelled funny. I've never noticed any unusual smell.
