Canadian Temperature Conversion Guide!

Had to share this:

Being a Canadian, COLD IS RELATIVE ....

The Temperature Conversion Guide (degrees are in Fahrenheit):

50 above - New Yorkers turn on the heat. Canadians plant gardens.

40 above - Californians shiver uncontrollably. Canadians sunbathe.

35 above - Italian cars won't start. Canadians drive with the windows down.

32 above - Distilled water freezes. Canadian water gets thicker.

20 above - Floridians wear coats, gloves & wool hats. Canadians throw on a t-shirt.

15 above - Californians begin to evacuate the state. Canadians go swimming.

Zero - New York landlords finally turn up the heat. Canadians have the last cook-out before it gets cold.

10 below - People in Miami cease to exist. Canadians lick flag poles.

20 below - Californians fly away to Mexico. Canadians throw on a light jacket.

40 below - Hollywood disintegrates. Canadians rent videos.

60 below - Mt. St. Helens freezes. Canadian Girl Scouts begin selling cookies door to door.

80 below - Polar bears begin to evacuate the Arctic. Canadian Boy Scouts postpone "Winter Survival" classes until it gets cold enough.

100 below - Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Canadians pull down their ear flaps.

173 below - Ethyl alcohol freezes. Canadians get frustrated when they can't thaw their kegs.

297 below - Microbial life survives on dairy products. Canadian cows complain of farmers with cold hands.

460 below - ALL atomic motion stops. Canadians start saying"Cold'nuff for ya?"

In all seriousness, I live in Canada and remember one winter when I afforded myself the luxury of riding a road bike in Tucson for two weeks one winter, and there I was riding around in shorts and a short sleeve jersey and feeling warm only to be confronted with the locals riding with ear muffs, arm warmers, vests, and tights. So to Sparky, it's funny because it's true...

Oh, and as to the "500 below" point, the Leafs were slated to play the winter classic this year. So even in a year when the entire season has been cancelled (so far) the Leafs still manage to lose a game...

(unabashedly a Leafs fan...)
