Just re-read a portion of the very funny book by Will and Ian Ferguson titled ,'How to be a Canadian'
Their descriptions of people from each provinces could easily fit the bill describing people on this site who support their province's teams. For example they describe:
- Alberta, - Back Up, Nice and Slow, and No One Gets Hurt"
- Provincial Motto: "We have oil. We have money. We have guns. Don't piss us off!" (sound like Eski-Moses or RedandWhite???)
Ontario- "Gaze upon Our Humble Magnificence and Bow Down before Us!"
-Formal Name: "the Centre of the Universe."
-Provincial Motto: "Celebrating over 100 Years of Narcissistic Self-Absorbtion". (Sound like Saskargo???)
Manitoba: "The Gateway to Saskatchewan"
Provincial MOtto- "Not quite the West, but not really the East either!"
(Sound like Kanga-Kucha??)
Saskatchewan: "Not as Flat as You'd Think!"
Original Name: Ksiskatchewanisipi
Why did they change it? : Because they didn't want to have a name that was difficult to pronounce or spell!"
(O.K.- I know, this logic sounds like Me-Turkeybend!!)
British Columbia- "Recycled, Free-range, Hand-woven-and All organic!"
(Rust is organic, right?)
Main industries: Forestry, whaling, tourism.
Main Hobbies: Anti-forestry, anti-whaling, and anti-tourism!"
Provincial Flower: "Mildew!"
(sound like any of the Lions fans???)
CFL is cool!
So are Canadians!!
