Tonight I was chatting with an online friend about food (they never heard of whole wheat pasta!) who happens to live in the States (Georgia) and at one point in the conversation they said:
Do ya’ll celebrate Thanksgiving?
This got me thinking about how much MORE we as Canadians know about our neighbours to the south than they know of us. Then I asked whether or not they show Canada on their weather maps. The response:
I think they show Canada and Mexico but dont divide them up
Damn! I almost wet myself laughing at that one!
OK, so upon more prodding I was able to figure out that they show all of North America, however they only divide the US up into their proper states. But DAMN my first interpretation of that first answer was really funny!
What other funny things have Americans asked you about your country?
