These are things Canadians say that Americans wouldn’t understand. In all honesty some of these I wasn’t aware of either, and some of the ones I had heard of I didn’t realize they were strictly Canadian expressions.
Thanks to Marybeth who emailed me this link, the list is courtesy of MSN.com.
Have you heard the expression Hang A Larry or Hang a Roger? It means to turn left and turn right.
Bunnyhugs are what people in Saskatchewan call hoodies. I had heard this only because a receptionist here at Q was from Saskatoon and told me about it.
We all know what a Two Four is but according to this list it’s a Canadian thing.
A Pull in Saskatchewan is someone who buys alcohol for underage drinkers. In B.C. and Alberta they call it a Boot.
Gotch/Ginch/Gonch also known as tightey whiteys or men’s underwear.
Toque is definitely Canadian and while we’re at it we’ll throw in a Take Off Eh. Even though we don’t really use that expression very often we all know what it means.
Whenever I hang with friends up north I’m bound to hear a Give’r or two.
These are just some of them can you think of any others that are pure Canadian?
