There is a movie called "Being Canadian" by Robert Cohen - you should probably study this documentary of your adopted homeland.

Klepperton: you know how to pronounce 'lieutenant'?

Or...what's a 'bonspiel'?

There's actually an annual race on the Humber which ends at Old Mill for these guys...the catch is, you have to juggle Timbits.

We can train in the spring if you'd like. ;)

I have to practice my lutz.

The Log Driver's Waltz was one of my earliest TV memories. I remember for years describing it to friends and them having no idea. Thank goodness for the NFB

Me too.

Right up there with Rocket Robin Hood - I frequently think of the looped animation of Friar Tuck gorging on some sort of meat and throwing the bones over his head when I eat a chicken leg.

You should also watch Trailer Park Boys. It features Canadian stars like Mike Smith and Jon Torrance, so I hear.

At one point I had watched all of TPB, but last week I realized that they've produced three more seasons, so I guess I need to sign up for Natflix.
