Funny forward from a friend of mine

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches
of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you live
in Ontario.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you live in
Ontario.

If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year, you
live in Ontario.

If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his
forehead, you live in Ontario.

If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Ontario.

If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialled a
wrong number, you live in Ontario.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TRUE ONTARIAN IF:


1. "Vacation" means going South past London for the weekend.

2. You measure distance in hours.

3. You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.

4. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and then back
again.

5. You can drive 110 kph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard,
without flinching.

6. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

7. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with
snow.

8. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road
construction.

9. Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer ( or purple
moose) next to your blue spruce.

10. Down South to you means London .

11. Your 1st of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.

12. You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.

13. You find 0 degrees "a little chilly."

14. You actually understand these jokes and you forward them to all your
Ontario friends

Those are great but I have to add...


3) You know how to play (and pronounce) Euchre.[/b]

I had never realized that Euchre was an Ontario thing until I moved to Victoria. The only people who know how to play are people from back East. We played all the time, card nights and every day during our breaks in high school. It was just so weird to realize that most people here had never even heard of that game.

I am new to the boards, but from Ontario and had a good laugh at how true these are! I didn't realize the euchre thing, or the distance by hours...how true!

Thanks for the laugh
