An American and a Canuk were in a terrible car accident. They were brought to the same emergency room, but both died before they arrived. Just as they were about to put the toe tag on the American, he stirred and opened his eyes. Astonished, the doctors and nurses present asked him what happened.

"Well," said the American, "I remember the crash, and then there was a beautiful light, and then the Canadian and I were standing at the gates of heaven. St. Peter approached us and said that we were too young to die, and that for a donation of $100, we could return to the earth."

He continued, " So of course, I pulled out my wallet and gave him the $100, and the next thing I knew I was back here."

"That's amazing!" said one of the doctors, "But what happened to the Canadian?"

"Last I saw him," replied the American, "the Canadian was waiting for the government to pay for his."

You know you are Canadian when...

You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled in with snow.

The local paper covers national and international headlines on two pages, but requires six pages for hockey.

The municipality buys a Zamboni before a bus.

You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars, and drink pop, not soda.

You use a red pen on your non-Canadian textbooks and fill in the missing u's from labor, honor, and color.

You know how to say free, prize and no sugar added in French thanks to your extensive education in bilingual cereal packaging.

You know what a toque is.

You've plugged a car in overnight.

You've defended your property from trespassers with a lacrosse stick because you don't own a gun.

Good list. Pretty accurate too, I must say. We actually do have better chocolate bars, coffee and ketchup though. Your ketchup just seems like it has too much vinegar or soemthing. Not sure why you guys have such a limited slection of chocolate bars :-? you'd think it would be the other way around. My cousins in Colorado bring back cases of all the premium Canadian stuff we have. But to be fair, when I go out there for a trip I always bring back some Red Bull and Ed McCaffrey's Honey Mustard. mmmmmmmm, honey mustard :-D

I never knew there was a difference in American and Canadian ketchup. That's what you get for assuming. I'll have to get my hands on some and give it a try. :-D

Nice to be at the source for both chocolate and Red Bull. ;-)

You mean there's no Red Bull in Canada?!?!?! :-o
Is it illegal there or something?
I don't know what I'd do without my Bull. I drink a case a week. Keeps the motor running!!!!
