The kindhearted one I think stems from how we play peacekeepers in war (generally). It might also have come from a contrast in American behaviour, or the behaviour of their political leaders / political decisions in general. We might just seem like the "softies" to the North or something.

I don't mind it, though. What's the worst stereotype Canadians have really? I mean, there's:

- Hockey
- Kindness
- Igloos
- Polar Bears
- Seal Hunts
- Raging Frenchies
-- Poutine

Nothing there's really "mean" like some of the American ones - pompous, arrogant, war-hungry - but I'm sure we do have some tasteless stereotypes. I think I heard that people consider Canadians to be "easy"? I dunno.

I think the easy comes from easy-going in general. And we don't have the South. Although girls from the South are pretty sweet from my experience.

According to stereotypes, I should be either fat, lazy, and stupid- or a Dutch farmer. .__. Okay, I am partially Dutch, but I'm more like a procrastinator than lazy.

Paladin (I can see that you're viewing this thread), it's funny that you were giving me a miniature lecture on not sleeping enough. Last night I was sleeping at around 1am, then was wide awake at 4:30. ?_? My eyes also refused to adjust to the dark, so I was falling over stuff in my bedroom haha.
I can't think of a good signature.

I've also heard the stereotype that Canadians put maple syrup on everything. And that they say 'a' all the time.

Stereotypes for me would be; arrogant, unintelligent, anti-social, aggressive, tree-hugging, lazy, and that I have no life goals.
Okay, so I used to be a bit aggressive, but not anymore! And I have plenty of life goals!

No! we say 'eh' all the time! NOT THE LETTER A. I would be very confused if we said 'A' at the end of every sentence.

lol, it's pronounced like the letter "a" but it's definitely an "eh?" (always interrogation). It adds more emphasis to stuff. We don't do it all the time, but every Canadian has said it at one point, I'm sure

And we don't put maple syrup on everything lol Just pancakes, sausage, bacon, waffles, french toast... Pretty much all breakfast foods, except eggs.

Apparently European people (spec. Germany) don't eat peanut butter or maple syrup lol Had a friend from there tell me pb isn't even sold really and maple syrup is a rarity.

@Blah:
Woah, calm down man. I typed it as 'A' to specify the sound. Keep in mind that seemingly a fair amount of people on PC watch anime, and 'Eh' is generally pronounced 'Eh' in it.

How can somebody not eat Peanut Butter?!
(Well, aside from people who have a peanut allergy. . . A sandwich isn't worth dying for.)

LOL i know. It occurred to me how absurd saying 'A' all the time would be and I felt that I had to bring it up because it's so loltastic. Like a "no you didn't" kinda moment.

I feel that I say eh at the end of everything. And I've tried maple syrup on eggs! It's good!

Thats surprising to me, peanut butter is so good. Then again, I dont even eat much of it nowadays and prefer Nutella.

Nah, I did eventually sleep after that.
Besides, I made it for over 24 hours with no sleep once. :D ...I spent the entire time on the internet and watching Pokemon, though.

Okay, last post was nearly an hour ago, and this is partially relevant to my conversation with Paladin.
Weirdest dream you've ever had?

Came up with the idea for the above because I had an odd dream last night that a dead relative's corpse was in my kitchen and she started talking to me. I:

Now, if the wings were fried in maple syrup, that'd be good

Basically, meat fried in maple syrup = <3

And also, canned beans in a maple syrup. Yummy.

Nutella is /drool

Not me, in fact I actually hate nuts. But then again I was in a school where peanuts are banned due to allergies and the whatnot. I once had peanut butter shoved in my mouth a few years ago and I literally spat it out cos it tasted so terrible.

Well according to the stereotypes where I come from (Wisconsin) I'm supposed to be part-redneck, part-liberal (city) or part-Conservative (everywhere else) cheese and brat eating, beer drinking, farmer who watches the Green Bay Packers. Although some of my states culture has rubbed off on me. (Microbrew is best brew).


Peanut Butter is amazing! You put that AND Maple Syrup on Pancakes or Waffles and your going to have a wonderful breakfast experience.

Nutella is wonderful, however my wallet hates it, and doesn't go anywhere near it.

The only time I've had Nutella was on these crepes at IHop. Those were amazing crepes just cause of the Nutella and I need more of that delicious stuff.

Nutella and Peanut Butter are the most beautiful spreads to come into existence. Although I have braces now, so I'm not exactly allowed to eat Peanut Butter since it gets rather sticky, which does suck since I love the stuff. Nutella on the other hand I haven't had for ages, although I used to love eating Nutella sandwiches, they were delicious! <3

I don't really like nutella, but I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER and kaya!

So what's kaya? So in where I come from, there's this thing called kaya, or coconut jam, its quite good as well, it can be mixed with butter. It tastes sweet.

NUTELLA.

Spoiler:


That is me. Nutella and I are like magnets, I have to strife with myself every time I go to the store to not buy it. Because I can't just have it on toast, because it tastes so incredibly good on a spoon. It's pretty incredible how good that stuff can be.

Also, peanut butter is nice too but not quite in the same way. And quite as good :]

Coco jam sounds like something I could get addicted to.
