1,894 voters participated in this survey

Going down to Florida this Saturday, and have to remember when I order my coffee, not to ask for a double double. Last time I ordered that I got two coffees! I joke, but there are some funny little difference between the way we talk. In an effort to bring us all much closer together, I thought I'd create this survey! Have fun!!

Americans, if you were visiting Canada, and your host asked to borrow a loonie so they could grab a double double before they go buy a two-four, would you have a clue as to what they were talking about? Well, us Canadians, in addition to having a reputation for being super polite and wearing shorts in the winter when the temperature rises to above 10 degrees (that's about 50 degrees for you Americans) have our own secret language. How many of these Canadian expressions or words do you know?
