Here is an excerpt from an email I got a while back. I'm from Canada and thought it was kind of funny. It's filled with a number of Canadianisms.

For fun, let's see if you Americans can understand this story.

**You could just goolge the story and get the answers, but what would be the fun in that... eh?



Last night, I cashed my pogey and went to buy a mickey of C.C. at
the beer parlour, but my skidoo got stuck in the muskeg on my way back to
the duplex. I was trying to deke out a deer, you see. Damn chinook, melted
everything. And then a Mountie snuck up behind me in a ghost car and gave
me an impaired. I was S.O.L., sitting there dressed only in my Stanfields
and a tuque
at the time. And the Mountie, he's all chippy and everything,
calling me a "shit disturber" and what not. What could I say, except,
"Sorry, EH!"




Once you read it and maybe stir in your confusion, you can decode the story here:

I'll give it a shot before I check out the link.

I'm guessing a pogey is a pay check.
a mickey of C.C. is some sort of beer
Skidoo.... snowmobile??
muskeg.... ditch?
deke out a deer.... miss a deer?
Chinook... .I have no idea
Mountie.... Canadian police
ghost car.... horse?
impaired.... DWI (Driving while intoxicated)
tuque.... I have no idea... tuxedo?
shit disturber... trouble maker?

That is pretty good.

Tuvok, don't feel bad. I know a number of English speaking Canadians that didn't get these.


Just so you all know, these are not extreme terms. When I first read this (a long time ago) I did not know what Chinook was because I didn't grow up out West. I never used or heard the term ghost car, but I knew what it was. Pretty much all the rest I've heard from my dad at one point in time. lol
