lol canada
« 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.

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"

The reason it's called ranger time is because doggy style is the name for the proper position in which you eat poutine.
