Are these bad or do you have to be Canadian to *get* it?


Now that Vancouver has won the chance to host the 2010 Winter
Olympics, these are some questions people the world over are
asking!!!! Believe it or not these questions about Canada were posted
on an International Tourism Website. Obviously the answers are a joke; but the questions were really asked!!.



From England:
Q:I have never seen it warm on Canadian TV, so how do the plants grow?
A. We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around and
watch them die.

USA:
Q:Will I be able to see Polar Bears in the street?
A: Depends on how much you've been drinking.

Sweden:
Q:I want to walk from Vancouver to Toronto-can I follow the Railroad
tracks?
A: Sure, it's only Four thousand miles, take lots of water.


Sweden:
Q:Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Canada?
A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.


Italy:
Q:It is imperative that I find the names and addresses of places to
contact for a stuffed Beaver.
A: Let's not touch this one.


England:
Q: Are there any ATM's (cash machines) in Canada? Can you send me a
list of them in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Halifax?
A: What did your last slave die of?


USA:
Q:Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Canada?
A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Ca-
na-da is that big country to your North...oh forget it. Sure, the
hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Calgary. Come naked.

USAP:
Q:Which direction is North in Canada?
A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here
and we'll send the rest of the directions.


England:
Q: Can I bring cutlery into Canada?
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.


USA:
Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule?
A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y,
which is...oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every
Tuesday night in Vancouver and in Calgary, straight after the hippo
races. Come naked.


Germany
Q: Do you have perfume in Canada?
A: No, WE don't stink.


USA:
Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can
you sell it in Canada?
A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.


Italy:
Q: Can you tell me the regions in British Columbia where the female
population is smaller than the male population?
A: Yes, gay nightclubs.

USA
Q: Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada?
A: Only at Thanksgiving.

Germany:
Q: Are there supermarkets in Toronto and is milk available all year
round?
A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of Vegan hunter/gathers. Milk
is illegal.


USA:
Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Canada, but I forget
its name. It's a kind of big horse with horns.
A: It's called a Moose. They are tall and very violent, eating the
brains of anyone walking close to them. You can scare them off by
spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.


USA:
Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go?
A: Yes, but you will have to learn it first.

Those are hilarious, even if half of them are making fun of us.

If they don't already, there must be something wrong with them too.

:lol: Those are funny, Grace.

A few of our friends have worked at Banff & Jasper National Parks, and they have some very funny stories of the dumb questions tourist will ask. A fairly common one is "when do they let the animals out?".

Hmm, you know, you're right. Not sure what it is, but you seem to get along with everyone. Heh, I don't have that problem.

Nope. I'm allergic to cameras. I'll give you a mental picture though.. I'm 1'11" tall, 899lbs, with green hair, one red eye and 3 noses.
