Throwback Thursday: Satire, Canadian Style!


**Addendum:  Please read, “Murph’s” comments below this post.  They are from Chris Murphy, Meteorologist from Canada’s, “The Weather Network”. He has summed up Canadians and weather perfectly! Thanks, Chris!! 🙂 

At this very busy time of year I felt we could all use a laugh or two. Here is a post I wrote a couple of years ago.  I’m posting this again for a, “Throwback Thursday” kinda day!  I do hope you enjoy it! 

– all pictures courtesy of Mo from the  Mo’s sense of humor is very similar to mine, and she shared these pictures with me knowing my Canuck sense of ‘ha ha’.  If there is one thing I know about Canadians, it is that we can collectively have a laugh at our own expense, all in the name of, “The Great White North”!

Please join me (and Mo, who lives in North Cyprus) with a little, “Canadian Content” to provide a little laugh to your day!


I am quite certain there are many Canadians (especially those who live in the Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta) who are grinning from ear to frozen ear with this little montage.  I must confess that during many exasperatingly frigid Prairie winters, I felt relieved at the ‘warmer’ temperatures when the -40C had left the region.  Interestingly enough, I found myself switching to a much lighter jacket at -10C, and left my wooly hat at home (I think these gentleman might be exaggerating just a tad, but not by much)!


If there will ever be an, “app” for this ghastly task, it will be invented by a Canuck; I have no doubt about this whatsoever!


I have witnessed this scenario many times! Heaven knows what other, ‘treasures’ Canadians find after the snow has subsided! You mean I actually OWN a car? I don’t remember that; perhaps it has something to do with the 6 months of winter in the Prairies!


Ah, the polite Canadians; requesting snow stoppage with not so much as a hint of irreverence! *grin*

Lest you think it is only our people who are polite, “PLEASE” take a gander at this:


Here’s one for those Canucks who have relatives who had the sheer and utter audacity to move to snow-less locales:


“Please” stay warm, my Canucks!

    As a Canadian, I can vouch for the accuracy of this article. We wear bad weather like a badge of honour – kinda like coming in first at the “worst dressed contest”

    This post reminded me of this gif:

    As a spoiled Canadian living in the bubble that is GTA which magically misss out on most of the extreme weather Canad has to offer, I tip my hat towards the Canadians who brave our terrible winters year after year. I couldn’t do it!

      Hahahaha Oh that is priceless!! (and true!) Thanks so much for including it! Well as one of those folks who has lived on the Prairies and knows first-hand what -40C feels like, I tip my toque (“hat”) to you my dear. It truly made me appreciate what ‘cold’ really means! That’s why I’m the one here in Chicago who has a thin coat on when people are bundled up as if they are in the Arctic (true)! *LOL* Cher xo
