Canadians are a bunch of super friendly, maple syrup eating, lumberjack, hockey zealots with big brown eyes and flapping heads. They all live in a cold, snowy place called Canada (not to be confused with Russia or Alaska).
Canada is not that different from America, besides the permanent winter and socialist medicine death panel politburo style of government. Canadians are ruled by a Prime Minister, who heads the chief death panel parliament. They have a Queen too who doesn't live there but they love her more than the Brits do. Also, they're friendly.
They tend to sport thick Mullets so as not to be cold in hockey season (it's all business in the front party in the back dude... Eh), and t-shirts with "American beer sucks" slogans. Canada has had immigrants from every country in the world, except America, who have been put on Canada's "Do not board" list. All people have survived after giving them cookies, but everyone who has tried to pet them has been found dead, their bodies suffered something only Sarah Palin, could inflict, eh?
The male Canadian's antlers arise as cylindrical beams projecting on each side at right angles to the middle line of the skull, which after a short distance divide in a fork-like manner. The lower prong of this fork may be either simple, or divided into two or three tines, with some flattening. The antlers are useful for the carrying of beer cans in their plastic rings. The antlers are also used as dowsing rods to help the Canadians locate beer trapped beneath the ice that covers the vast majority of their habitat.
The male Canadian will drop its beer cans after mating season in order to conserve energy for the summer season. It will then regrow them in the spring. The beer cans take about three minutes to grow, making them one of the fastest growing brews in the world. The beer cans initially have a layer of aluminum, which will shed off once fully grown. Mating season begins after the local hockey team is eliminated from the playoffs.
Behavior and breeding
Although Canadians are generally timid, the males become very bold during the breeding season, it is not uncommon for them to charge at moving trains, so long as they won't hurt the train, which is a revered piece of technology in Canada. The females (sometimes referred to as cougars) utter a loud call, similar to the lowing of cattle, which can be heard from up to a mile away. During breeding (the rut), males will compete for females by fighting with their beer cans and sneakers and by fierce clashing of Kraft Dinner. The Canadian male is noted for having irregular penises that grow inwards, due to the cold climate. All Canadians aspire to have the sexual prowess of Wayne Gretzky, God of Canada eh.
As well as bellowing, the female Canadian emits a strong, odoriferous pheromone in order to attract a mate. She also secretes pheromones in her urine which lets the males know that she is waiting in a motel room in Toronto. Females may begin to breed at 17, but more usually 15 years of age.
The female gives birth to one or (occasionally) two Canadians at a time, in spring. The gestation period for a Canadian is about 216-240 days. Canadian babies grow very quickly, nourished by their mother's beer bottles, which are very high in poutine and other essential nutrients.
In North America, during the winter, Canadians may form loose aggregations in fairly sparse urban centers, which they keep open by trampling the snow. In the spring, Canadians can often be seen in drainage ditches at the side of roads, taking advantage of beer foam which has run off the road. These minerals replace electrolytes missing from their winter diet.
In North America, changes in land use patterns, mainly the clearing of northern forests for settlement and agriculture, have led to the range of the Canadian expanding northward. Where their ranges overlap, Canadians may become infected by parasites carried by the deer such as brain worm, Parelaphostrongylus tenuis, and winter ticks, Dermacentor albipictus, which, though fairly harmless to deer, can be fatal to Canadians, especially when mixed with maple syrup.
The lifespan of a Canadian in the wild is roughly 35 to 80 years, depending on how many hockey fights they get into.
Canadian rock art and cave paintings reveal that the Canadians have lived in Canada since about 1867.
In downtown Toronto one can still find trapping pits in use for hunting elk. These pits, which can measure up to
4 x 7 meters 13 x 23 feet in area and be up to 2 meters 6.5 feet deep, are camouflaged with branches and leaves in the middle of the major boulevards. They have steep sides lined with planks, making it impossible for an elk or motor-bus to escape once it has fallen in. When Canadians trap a motor-bus or an elk or sometimes the occasional drunk person, they will peg it to death with Tim bits and then eat it.
The first written description of the Canadian is in the DaVinci Code, where it is described thus:
"There are also animals which are called Canadians. The shape of these, and the varied color of their skins, is much like roes, but in size they surpass them a little and are destitute of horns, and have legs without joints and ligatures; nor do they lie down for the purpose of rest, nor, if they have been thrown down by any accident, can they raise or lift themselves up. Trees serve as beds to them; they lean themselves against them, and thus reclining only slightly, they take their rest. When they have leant upon them, according to their habit, they knock down by their weight the unsupported trees, and fall down themselves along with them. This is due to the beer they have consumed, hallelujah."
Canadians are also known for gesticulating wildly to the music of April Wine, a group of assassins based out of Halifax (come on now, there are more than 4 Canadian cities) that have doubled as a rock group for four decades. Scientists speculate that such behavior on the part of Canadians is a conditioned response, knowing that by appearing to enjoy the band's music they might be spared its fateful wrath. Band leader and international arms smuggler Myles Goodwyn is particularly deadly with a switchblade. Canadians love to say "eh". While Canadians have a cultural tendency to complain about their health care system, one must go to Wikipedia (English, not French) to be reminded that their health care system is seven times greater than the Americans to the south. Another tendency of Canadians is to viciously attack critics of their country. While Americans will simultaneously insult and congratulate themselves freely, even slight criticism of Canada will result in a public hockey stick beating and a few smug remarks to the victim afterwards (usually about how Canada is superior to the U.S.)
Canadians are blessed by the natural gifts they evolved, known as eating jokes and standup comedy. About 1,000 Canadian comedians are well known around the world, although Canadians only get American pop media and a few French programs which are not funny. Perhaps the most famous Canadian is Bob from Toronto, as when meeting a Canadian it is traditional to comment "You are from Canada, Eh? Do you know Bob from Toronto?" Every Canadian knows the specific Bob you mean. Meanwhile, Canada has yet to elect a standup comedian as prime minister. Oh wait. Stephen Harper . . . .
Most Canadians have their wealth tied up in their homes, also known as igloos that begin to melt as soon as the sun comes out. Construction workers are always in demand to resurface the exterior with fresh snow and ice. Attempts to introduce melt resistant construction materials are forbidden by the Canadian constitution
Canadian's greatest exports include Pamela Anderson, Wayne Gretzky, surplus kindness and "beaver tails" (heart-attack inducing fried bread). Their greatest imports are immigrants, syrup-able goods (pancakes, waffles etc.), and refrigerators for their large Eskimo populations.
Canadian currency consists of the elusive 'loonies' and 'toonies,' and more recently, Tim Horton's gift cards.
Vehicle collisions and Canadian warning signs
A Canadian's body structure, with a large heavy body suspended on long spindly legs, makes these people particularly dangerous when hit by motor vehicles (skidoos). Such collisions are often fatal for both the Canadian and the motorist. This has led to the development of a vehicle test in Manitoba referred to as the "beer run."
Generally, upon impact the bumper of the car (skidoo) will break the Canadian's legs. The main body of the Canadian, along with a hail of beer cans, will then collide with the windshield, often with disastrous effect to both.
What are those Canadians (or Canadiens) doing in the Mall Parking Lot?
Canadians have been infected with something called "GST". This GST is an unusual political virus which causes them to pay an extra 5% for everything they buy in Canada. In addition to this dreadfull GST the lesser civilised parts of Canada (Quebec) are afflicted with a very similar disease called QST which leads them to pay 9.5% in addition to the dreaded 5%. On top of this, some places pay as much as 30% Tax. Canadians have been observed leaving their country for shopping malls in the Buffalo, N.Y. area wearing old, threadbare clothing and footwear. Once they get to the malls they feverishly purchase several sets of shirts and pants and a new pair of shoes, and then frantically change into their new clothes in their Canadian Automobiles, possibly due to fever-like symptoms. They are then compelled, perhaps by the "GST" virus to throw their old clothes in a convenient nearby snowbank (of which there are many) and then compulsively lie to Customs when they eventually return back to their native Canada.
Recent attempts to cure the "GST" have been complicated by a mass evolution of the entire strain by contact with various similar local strains into what is currently called the "HST".
The Canadian in popular culture
- In South Park, they are depicted as people who have beady eyes and flappy heads that split in half when they talk. The fictional TV show "Terrance and Phillip" in South Park is about the two Canadians Terrance and Phillip who spend the majority of their time farting, enjoying Kraft dinner and hunting for treasure. It is based on the actual "Kraft Dinner Terrence and Philip Hour" on CBC, which has received the Queen's award for contribution to the Canadian artistic craft of flatulence entertainment.
- In Western culture, the Canadian is often depicted as laconic and good-natured but not terribly bright. Bullwinkle J. Moose of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, an animated Canadian news show, is the most famous example, although Rutt and Tuke (voiced by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas in a return to their MacKenzie Brothers roles) from the Disney release Brother Bear are also excellent examples.
- A Canadian for Jessica chronicles the 76-day 'relationship' between a Canadian man and a Hereford cow named Jessica in Shrewsbury, Vermont, USA.
- In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the opening credits are given mock-Swedish subtitles that quickly degenerate into vandalism, including such lines as "A Canadian once bit my sister" and "Mynd you, Canadian bites kan be pretty nastï".
- In poker, a loose or inexperienced player is often referred to as a Manitoban.
- The quest to see (and possibly catch) Canadians is a recurring theme in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Cheese Whiz.
- According to Invader Zim, what lies at the end of a wormhole is a Canadian.
- Some people might tell you that these references in fact refer to a moose. But we don't listen to them.
- To learn more about the wormhole please watch all of "The Invader Zim documentary".
- Canada is filled with emos, anti-Grues and chickens which are persecuted and forced to the US. Where do you think Avril Lavigne, Skye Sweetnam, and Three Days Grace are from? Emos are generally found crying in corners of exhibition facilities and other public areas where the emo can display its lack of any testicular fortitude and eventually be noticed and dealt with.
- Most Canadians prefer to mate "doggy style" so no one misses the hockey game.
- Snow shallow enough that you can still move your legs is considered mild weather
- A group of Canadians is called a "Gang" or "Herd", or occasionally when three get together, a Rush.
- Canadians are drawn inexplicably toward shiny reflective objects, this is due to their desire to be home amongst the snow and ice of Canada.
- Canadians score 10 points higher on IQ tests than Americans but generally score worse on a breathalyzer test. There may or may not be a correlation
- Margaret Trudeau has a map of Canada tattooed on her ass. When she sits down, Quebec separates.
- During the spring thaw, a Canadian can swim for up to two hours and as far as twelve miles.
- Other than beer, maple syrup is a commonly consumed drink in Canada. It sells for $0.50/gallon in US Dollars there but they can make a good $5.00 on the same amount here.
- Canadians do not even bring their guns to the mall.
- They treat curling just like it's a real sport.
- Canadians are often oot an' aboot but Americans are usually just out and about.
- Canadians like to use phrases like "surfs up dude!" and "man look at that wave" when referring to going out in the snow.
- The Band Plague Crawler are Canadian.
- Almost any word in the Canadian language (Not understandable by many) can be substituted for the english word Fuck or fuckenEh?.
- Canadians start letters with 'Hey Hoser,' as opposed to 'Dear Sir'.
- Canadians are perhaps the only nationality (except americans) who wear clothing with their own countries flag when visiting other countries. It is because they don't want to be mistaken for Americans and get hated by everyone else. The Canadian flag has actually been referred to as "the I am not American flag". Foreigners like Canadians wear the American flag when traveling to the US so they are not interrogated and physically/mentally abused by the TSA.
- The "There's Gotta Be Something Wrong With That Guy" hat is considered commonplace in Canada. It is commonly worn in combination with rapist glasses and a pedophile beard, which are called Regular Glasses and Lumberjack Beards respectively in Canada.
- Newfoundlanders are embarrassed to be lumped in with Canadians, and apologize for any confusion their accents may account for. Often when you see a Newfoundlander with a Mainlander (typical Canadian), the Canadian will end up doing something that will embarrass the Newfoundlander for being seen in public with the nice but slow Canadian.
- Canadians worship beavers-beaver gods-and give them Stanley Cups as offerings. They've got so many Stanley Cups that Canadian hockey players can wear them during their games.
- The RCMP likes to play tag with tasers. Thats how real men play tag.
- Canadians are by large, intoxicated on various psychotropic substances. Notoriously using alcohol (in the form of beer, moonshine and absinthe), cannabis, magic mushrooms, peyote, and opium. All of the said substances will not land you in jail either.
- Canadians just don't know how to make anything. Other than maple syrup, Epic Hot people, Canadian beer, anything taxidermy related, igloos, the CN Tower and those annoying Canada Geese.
- Most Canadians live close to the border, either because they are plotting to invade the US or because anything too far north is too damn cold. There is no actual warmth in Canada itself, because it is a frozen wasteland. Thus Canadians crowd the border to absorb the warmth of their fatso American cousins.
- Canadian lumberjacks and truckers chug maple syrup and eat flapjacks in Alberta diners when they aren't on the job. Some will drink maple syrup mixed with stimulants such as meth in order to drive further.
- Pamela Anderson is Canadian, once again proving how hot and sexy Canadians are. Tommy Chong is pretty damn sexy too.
- Canadians are capable of chugging antifreeze without dying or suffering severe poisoning. This is because they have had to find ways to cope with the extreme cold and because it makes them look tougher than the nearby Russians.
- Canada's national pastimes are hockey, eating poutine with duck fat, saying "sorry" to everyone that they bump into, and complaining about their health care system. Their main health care debates include "When should we kill the elderly?" and "How much better are we than Americans?".
