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!!
1. 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?
Double-double -- coffee with two sugars and two creams (yes we also have triple triple)
Loonie -- that's our one dollar coin -- the two dollar coin is called a Toonie
Two-four -- case of 24 beers
Mickey -- a smaller bottle of vodka, rum, etc. (the kind you can slip in your back pocket)
Toque -- a hat for winter (no brim)
I'm Canadian so I know them all
Not Canadian but I know them all
2. Here's a few more you may not be familiar with--yes, more of our secret Canadian language...
All-dressed -- means the works on burgers, hot dogs, etc.
Beavertail --a pastry (shown above)
Canadian, so know them all
Not Canadian, but know them all
3. Hopefully you do realize that this survey is all just for fun! Here in Canada, we really do speak English--or French--but we do have some strange language idiosyncrasies. How many of these do you know about?
We spell words like colour and flavour with a 'u' as the British do
Canadians use the British spellings defence and offence with a 'c'
We also spell the words centre or theatre with a 're"
4. Do you think you would need a Canadian--American dictionary if you came to visit Canada?
Have been and it all made sense
Have been and could not understand what they were talking about!
