20 Actual Canadian Slang Words. Are They Almost Minnesotan?
Ever been called an “Almost-Canadian”? I have. I’ve been to concerts at the Target Center where the band greeted the crowd with “Hello, almost-Canada!”
Harrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrdy har har!
In all honesty, there probably are similarities between Canadians and Minnesotans. How many of these Canadian slang words do you regularly use?
Loonie: the Canadian one-dollar coin. A definite no.
Two-Four: A case of twenty-four beers. Nope, but I like it!
Toque (pronounced “tuke”): A knit hat usually worn in winter. I have heard Minnesotans say this.
Pop: a sweetened carbonated beverage. Yyyyyyyep (unless you’re one of those weirdos that call it “soda”).
Hammered: very drunk. Absolutely. Quite often.
Of course, we both love hockey, too. So being “Almost-Canadian” isn’t such a bad thing!
