Title: lol canada
Post by: calenlass on 30 Mar 2011, 16:21
Dear Tania,

I know you are super busy, but I would like you to participate in making my final presentation for my french class, if you can. It's super easy, I promise! I don't remember what all the options were, but I picked "Describe a Francophone country and make us want to go there", and since I hate the class and I have 3 other final projects to do at the same time, I decided to do "facts" about Canada. Also it has to be kind of bland and dumb to be funny because it is an intro class and also full of Normal People, so. I am sorry I guess. I would do something else but I don't want to actually make any real effort for this class.

Some ideas I had:
-National food is poutine/everyone subsists on poutine
-The Poutine is a creature (like the haggis) that evolves from beavers who chew on too many maple trees/eat too much maple syrup/whatever
-Everyone lives in a chateau.
-There is a government-subsidised healthcare plan for moose.
-Everyone has a backyard barbecue to celebrate the first time the weather drops below freezing, before it REALLY starts to get cold.
-Everyone wears plaid.
-Ice Hockey is the national religion.

Basically your part would be to sit in front of your webcam and smile long enough for me to make a rather obvious looped recording, and one clip that will come before the loop in which you look at the camera and wave and say "hello". This is because "my friend Tania, who is Canadian, is joining us LIVE" and also I will dub over your "hello" with "bonjour" but in my voice, unless you want to do that too. Possible addition at the end of "Canada est le meilleur pays de tout le monde!" in an awful not-french accent.

Love, Katie


PS: If you can't or don't really want to, I can always get someone else, because since you don't really say anything I guess it does not matter if they are really canadian. I just thought of you first, I guess.

PPS: If anyone has any other blasť ideas to contribute, feel free.

PPPS: Criticise elsewhere. I am getting an easy A out of this.

Post by: Drill King on 30 Mar 2011, 16:43
Are you looking at old quebec or new quebec sort of culture? Because if it's old quebec(more rural areas, mostly excluding montreal etc) there is a lot of silly stereotypes and funny weird traditions to be found.

I dunno, I was just going to do canada because I can already make some jokes about canada and now I just have to do them in french? But I guess I could make jokes about Quebec, that would prolly be better, even though I don't know much about it.

The chateau thing and the poutine thing still apply, right?

more facts about canada:

- it is over ten years old
- if all countries were ocean creatures, canada would probably be a whale. russia would be a bigger whale. not excessively bigger but i mean, like, fairly notably bigger
- 20% of canadians are members of broken social scene
- the sexual position usually known as "doggy style" is instead called "ranger time"

Depends. For a US citizen it probably is that way. For a Finn it is the reverse. Crossing the border at Sarnia with my wife was a pleasant experience. We were steeling ourselves for a delay after seeing the long line of Americans being questioned (I guess the border guard just happened to be on alert looking for handguns or something). A Mounty respected officer of the R.C.M.P. happened to notice the covers of our passports. Waved us out of the line, grabbed the passports, stamped them, and said "Welcome to Canada".

Or may be it is a conspiracy of Hockey fans?

It's true! Also she said never to flirt with the Canadians, which I took as good advice, considering we were one of the few cars to not get searched.

The impression I got during my only 3 day visit to Bruinston is that yes, indeed, you can pahk a cah there. In fact you can double-pahk a cah there. And if it gets crowded triple-pahking is the accepted remedy. As well as taking a left turn across three other lanes packed with cahs going straight ahead.

Hey so this is a bit old, but on going to and from canada, when I went with allison to go hang with dovey, I had a backpack, the guy called me up and was like "what's in the backpack?" I was like "toothbrush, clothes, deodorant" and he was all "okay, you're good" without even so much as taking a quick look inside. Meanwhile a group of brown people were getting their luggage torn apart.
On the way back into the states, they do a xray thing, and there were two hasidic jewish guys on the bus, and I guess they had to have all kinds of background checks and extra questioning. But the dudes knew they would so they were first off the bus.

I once made the mistake of going to the Victoria and Albert museum whilst carrying a month's worth of luggage (I think I was on my way to Jens and Kris's for Christmas and I had one bag entirely full of Christmas presents). The guy at the front desk sort of blinked at the number of bags, asked me to open each one and just looked at the top layer of things in the bags, not even moving things around to see what was under them. We're talking a 60 litre rucksack, a large suitcase, a shoulder bag and a travel bag all filled with stuff. I could have been carrying anything in there - body of a small child, a variety of bombs, smuggled Asian art that I'd snuck out of the exhibit, anything at all.

When I went to Boston I got checked leaving Sydney. I guess because it was like, 40C heat and I was wearing jeans, boots and was carrying a heavy leather overcoat. No one gave me a second look in Boston where it was about -12C. It was ok, I knew it would happen. I have made certain choices about how I look and I'm prepared for the consequences.
