It gets worse. They're putting on hockey jerseys in the locker room.

They're supposed to put on hockey sweaters in the dressing room.

"Young people say “I have a dog” while older Canadians often say “I’ve got a dog,” unless they have a cat."

Unless they have a cat? Eh?

That's worth watchin' merely becuz Doug and Bob McKenzie (those HOSERS!) sing their "12 days of Christmas" song ... know whut I mean, eh?

Blame Canada.

"young, urban Canadians"

Ha! Good one!

Eh.

They're jeopardizing their cultural ehdentity.

So really right.

So "Eh" (pronouned "A") is being replaced with
what, maybe "arsum"?

Mr. Language Person should do a seminar up thar!
