The US also has a large French population

Chris said, "Many Americans wonder why the packaging and instructions for most consumer appliances (washing machines, televisions, etc.) are printed in French... it's because the same goods are shipped to Canada. The concept is lost on 95% of all U.S. citizens, I bet."

And I always thought it was because they were also being shipped to south Louisiana...

I am really honestly surprised to see how much americans do know about us lumberjacks... eh?

I was watching the local new a while back, when some prime ministers aid called Bush a moron, anyway they took a camera down to Seatle and interview a bunch of american. All but one person said the Bush really was a moron.

Oh and " Ya'll " be happy to hear that we Canadians just go our third area code. Now I have to go through my cell and re-program all my numbers. It was only last year they gave us a second postal code. They really should slow down with all this change, we slow folks can't take all of this in at once.

I think this takes care of all the Canuck jokes I no of, so I'll get back to eating my seal steak in the warmth of my two floor igloo.

MMmmm.... Seal steak... In Newfoundland you can get seal flippers cooked in a variety of ways. Moose is very tasty as well.

Don't be to hard on the United Statesians. They don't know as much about us because they aren't bombarded by our television stations, like we are with theirs.

When I was growing up in Cleveland in the '60s, we use to listen to CKLW out of Windsor. But then, Windsor is just another suburb of Detroit.

Except you only have to be 19 to drink. Long live Cananda!!!

As far as statements about why things are in french. Beleive it or not, they actually teach american kids about Quebec in gradeschool. So yes, we do know why there is French on the box.

Seal steak? Moose? I thought all canadian food was purely bacon or a by-product of it. Canada's infiltration of the US is already underway. Here in Mich. we have a governor that was born in Canada. For some reason I keep having this feeling whenever she makes a speech it's laced with coded messages that are broadcast to the Canadians. I've heard she's pushing to get the state seal replaced by a portrait of the queen. They are plotting, soon we will all wear duck boots and fannel year round with a constant yearning for the taste of bacon. But then again I could be wrong, in that case I am soarry aboot all this :)

Seal, moose?? That sounds wonderful. Down here we eat anything doesn't move fast enough! Blacken seal (or moose) steaks, seared with peppercorns and mild habaneros, and a red wine glaze would make a great dinner.

A good friend of mine has emu and ostrich on his hobby farm here. Luckily for them, they are pets. Otherwise, there'd be some good eatin' going on.

In the meantime, I'll continue stuffing my face with sushi.

They (not me) have eaten emu around here. Despite that most people I know won't eat those yellow tooth devils know as nutria (looks like a big rat).

Can you believe they have actually sold nutria meat to the Chinese?

I prefer Winnipeg Goldeye, myself. Too bad Americans have to pay so much for it. +_+

Bill, Ostrich is definitely good eatin. I heard they have some large Ostrich farms in Texas. I can't get any Ostrich here in FL. Know of a good web site?

Funny, I can't stand the taste of venison unless it's been prepared as a sausage or something. Probably why I haven't been deer hunting for 20 years.

Chinese people will eat almost anything (not necessarily American Chinese). One of my best friends took me out to very traditional Chinese place. We had stewed chicken feet, raw quail eggs, and other yummy stuff. As gross as it all looked, it was all pretty tasty. Although picking the tiny toe bones out of the chicken feet sucked.
