10 Things You Can Never Say To A Canadian

There are some things that will seriously push a Canadian's buttons. And you should know not to get in our way. We may be polite, but we're also always ready to throw down.

I really hope nobody took any of that seriously. Sorry, but to me she just sounds like another whiner complaining about immature things that are of very little consequence. None of those things are important. By implying that unimportant stuff like that will push Canadians' buttons she makes Canadians out to sound like a bunch of sheltered crybaby short tempered whoosies who aren't capable of dealing with things that are actually important, let alone deal with the unimportant things.

And then some Canadians wonder why people from other countries get a kick out of teasing Canadians - it's because they know that a lot of Canadians are on the defensive and make it too easy to tease and insult them and are just begging for it. Seriously, why give a damn about the unimportant things that non-Canadians say or think about Canada and why let them yank chains over such stupid stuff? Why is it hard to brush it off?

You know what, if Canadians get their knickers in a twist over that kind of juvenile stuff then they deserve all the teasing they might get dished out to them because they are asking for it.

Merry Christmas!

Having lived in Canada.....yeah, agree about all except this one..

8. "Canadian beer sucks"

Whoa, la. Have you had Canadian beer? We know how to brew. We are nice and proud of our abilities. Stop calling it "moose urine" and stop being so darn snooty. It doesn't really make sense to rag on another nation's product. Don't you like variety? Aren't we supposed to celebrate differences? I think it's very unfair to insult someone's art. Period.


I lived in Canada at a period of time when American beer was awful. Canadian beer was cool....then American's decided to brew good beer and Canada said their beer was "good enough". So yeah, now it would be "moose ****".

Don't get me started on Canadian wine!!

And yeah, the 51st state stuff really is awful. Nope, only province that is "good enough" to be admitted to the Union is Alberta. Yeah, we will admit Alberta....can we make the rest of Canada a commonwealth like Puerto Rico??

Jeez, does she have a chip on her shoulder. Sounds very immature and insecure. I've heard lots of Canadians diss the U.S., it's not a one-way street.

And I think B.C. is good enough to be a U.S. state, not just Alberta. Maybe even Saskatchewan, if they'll bring along Corner Gas.

I love Canada, except for Timmy's, which kinda sucks since it merged with Burger King.

It's called humor. Apparently it's an alien concept to some people.
