Honestly I'm not really bothered by them, there's not much that's really bad that's said about us. What really gets on my nerves is people calling us American.
I actually find them funny cause most of them are true and it's stuff we don't notice about ourselves that others do!
I try to perpetuate them. I enjoy making people think I have a pet polar bear or that I live in an igloo. But I do really like the stereotype that Canadians are incredibly polite.
I have to agree with Kelly that what gets on my nerves is people thinking we're Americans.
I love them. I can't get enough of them. I find them hilarious. The ones I've heard have been harmless, bordering on good. Besides, I do know John from Newfoundland, or at least I will. One life goal, go to Newfoundland and find a man named John. Also, how awesome is it that they think we ride Polar Bears--I say, preserve them at all costs.
Anyways, what's your stance on them?
