LOL!! Yes, the States cannot deny the contribution of Norwegians, but on the flip side you Norwegian Minnesotan's have given the Canadians a chance to counter our poking fun at their accent...

LOL. Good one. Yeah, I bet Pam would appreciate being consulted about such enhancements.

I watched that video, understood everything he said and I like the cool accent. Then I watched the next video that came on right after it (How to be a Minnesotan) and it made me think they seem like my kind of people and that Minnesota really would be a good fit as a part of Canada.

OK, I can get on board with this idea Zoisite, and after having watched your video, I would say if you are going to annex Minnesota to Canada, understand/talk the language and learn to make/eat Ludefisk, you must equally learn to speak "Newfie" for when you are in Newfoundland, and be able to make/eat/enjoy seal flipper pie and cod tongues to be considered a "true" Canadian!! Your first lesson below...

I'm down with that. I like their accent too. He was a little hard to follow at first when he was talking very fast but when he slowed down to talking normal speed I understood everything he was saying. The longer he talked the easier it became to follow him so I think I could adjust to the Newfie accent okay if I was exposed to it long enough.

I'm not too crazy about ludefisk but would have no problem with me learning to like seal flipper pie and cod tongues. I have already enjoyed open coal roasted seal flipper, and fish tongue chowders were common fare when I was a kid. And also Pacific halibut cheeks combined with salmon roe, livers and testes sliced and stir fried in brandied butter with sweet pickled onions. We eat a fair bit of interesting seafoods here on the west coast too.

How about “Rush is overrated”? Or “no good French-language rock song ever came from Quebec”?

Both are true. Unfortunately.

A fun link. We can take some teasing all in good humour.

Here's a pet peeve of mine: Don't ya hate that spell checker picks up our "u" in so many words like humour, colour, favour, etc, and tells us it's wrong? ugh! We need a Canadian English version of spell check.

The Canadian English spell check does exist on a number of systems - but not all of them.


I just checked and the version of Word I have on my computer has it.
