Oh, Canada

I spent a fair deal of time in Canada. One might even say I lived there at one point. In so doing, I learned that Canada is a strange and sometimes awful place (accept it, Canadians; every place is awful in its own way).

I was recently speaking to one of my Canadian friends, and I learned this tidbit (I’m going to call her “Canada-Sue” even though her name is not Sue, though she is from Canada):

Me: i think i’m going to join a kickball team next
Canada-Sue: what is kickball?
Me: like baseball, but with a big red rubber ball that you kick
not a Canadian thing?
Canada Sue: called soccer-baseball here
good game!
Me: hahaha! soccer-baseball
you PEOPLE

Is there NOTHING that country can’t make weird?
