The Americans are doing very well at this. (Which destroys our stereotype of you guys - thanks a bunch).

If there were an American version of this I wonder how we Canadians would do?

This could (along with this thread) endanger the stereotype that Canadians have no sense of humor. ;)

What stereotype? I don't get it. :(

The guts and gore thing just goes to show ya that we live by by our Canadian motto

I found an American quiz. 10 questions only and not nearly as entertaining as the Canadian Quiz (or at least no blood). The premise is enteraining though.

Why I'm so tired.

For a couple of years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep, not
enough sunshine, too much pressure from my job, ear wax build-up, poor blood or
anything else I could think of. But now I found out the real reason. I'm tired
because I'm overworked! Here's why:
The population of Canada is 30 million or so.
11 million are retired. That leaves 19 million to do the work.
There are 5.5 million in school, which leaves 13.5 million to do the work.
Of this there are 3 million employed by the federal government, leaving 10.5 million to do the work!
1 million are in the armed forces, which leaves 9.5 million to do the work.
Take from the total the 7 million people who work for Provincial and city
Governments, and that leaves 2.5 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 476,000 people in hospitals, leaving 2,024,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons and 812,000 on Employment Insurance and Welfare.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And there you are sitting on your ass, at your computer, reading CCR jokes.
That's why I'm tired. :(

This is what I would hope would happen in Temagami 8)
(girls, it's a bit racy :oops: )

A rich lady from Southern Ontario, who was a tree hugger and
a vociferous anti-hunter, purchased a piece of
timberland in Temagami.
There was a large tree on one of the highest points in
the tract. She wanted to get a good view of the
natural splendor of her land so she started to climb
the big tree.
As she neared the top, she encountered a spotted owl
that attacked her. In her haste to escape, the lady
slid down the tree to the ground and got many
splinters in her crotch.

In considerable pain, she hurried to the nearest
country doctor. She told him what an environmentalist
and anti-hunter she was and how she came to get all
the splinters. The doctor listened to her story
with great patience and then told her to go into the
examining room and he would see if he could help her.

She waited for three hours before the doctor
reappeared. The angry lady demanded, "What took you so
long?"
He smiled and then told her...
"Well, I had to get permits from the Ministry of the Environment,
the Ministry of Natural Resources, and the Bureau
of Land Management before I could remove old-growth
timber from a recreational area... and I am sorry, but
they all turned me down."

How many canoeists does it take to change a light bulb?

I honestly don’t know…

You see some canoeists are set in traditional ways and they tend to view light bulbs as ugly and against their grain – so they will opt to use a candle instead. Other canoeist are modern gadget-geeks and they go out and get these funky little LED lights that weigh nothing and last forever. Still other canoeist like doing research and talking about light-bulbs, so they go and find a web-site where they can discuss various light-bulb scenarios for 10 pages or so until they forget what it was they were discussing in the first place. Then there is the canoeist who just doesn’t get why people are discussing light bulbs at all and thinks everybody else should be focussed on their own little agenda (Temagami :wink: ) and pissing-off half the board in the process
