I remember trying to sort out all the upper midwest "confirmation catchphrases" at the end of sentences.  The common perception is that everyone in MN, WI, MI and IA says "eh?" like a Canadian.  I figured out it went something like folks in Wisconsin do, in fact, say "eh?" A LOT. However, folks in Minnesota often say "don cha know?".  Folks in Iowa say "yeah hey?".  I can't remember the Michigan version.

I don't know what you are talking aboot  :-\

The common perception is also that everyone in Canada says "eh?"  Its a regional expression in Canada as much as it is in the US.  Go north of the northern midwest US & that's where you'll hear it (central & western Canada).

I don't know aboot the "eh" thing but most of the folks in the upper midwest that I deal with never say "yeah" but always "ya" (even when they're typing)

That's not to say it isn't a widespread expression in Canada, but you don't hear it much east of Ontario.

But back on topic, the poking fun happens more east/west here and we have a severe inferiority complex when it comes to the neighboring southern border  ::)  even though Canada is larger (see there it is again).

Come on, we all know what it is really like down there. Lets just say,I for one am never going on a canoe trip down there that is for sure.


It suddenly dawned on me that Cap was actually making fun Tubercle and other of folks in S.C.

Tuberlce takes offense to that and really don't appreciate it as this is only a stereotype Cap's ignorance doesn't let him know that we are just as cultured as anybody else.

 Here are some examples of our fine upstanding citizens out of for a lazy Saturday afternoon jam:

And some of our best pickers. Listen all the way through. If you can play an acoustic better than that, then bring it on.

More Saturday afternoon relaxin'

 And even more.

 I was in all them pictures some where.

 We have this "Moonshiner's reunion" <http://moonshiners.com/>every 1st Friday and Saturday in October in Campobello,S..C. (Camp'beller in local vernacular) and it displays our refined upper social upbringing that has been so misunderstood by everyone outside our local area wrongly that defines us as red necks and hicks.

 We even got folks in our state that has been certified with a P.H.D. (Post Hole Diggers) so all of you uppity folk had better back off Tubercle, unless he come find you and teach you some culture.

Ya!  You bet 'cha!  My oldest daughter says "Ya" like nervous public speakers say"uhhh".  Drives me nuts.

I always thought it was stupid that everyone around me thought all Canadians ended every phrase with 'eh?".  Then I made my first trip to Canada on business and the first person I talked to (as I was stepping out of the door of the Toronto airport, mind you) asked me, and I quote, "Sooo, How you liking Canada, eh?".  It was all I could do to keep from laughing out loud.  He was the only person I talked to during the whole trip who spoke that way.  It was just too funny.

Maybe he was just playing along? :)

I went to Vancouver BC for work once, and a Canadian I worked with told me - when you're in a conversation with some Canadians and there's a lull in the conversation, out of nowhere just say:

"Play hockey, eh".

So I did.

It was hilarious!  They immediately started going "oh hell yeah" and yammering on about hockey this and hockey that.  I'm a hockey fan so the conversation was fun, but man!  It was like a pre-programmed trigger phrase.   ;D

Summers in college, one of my brothers worked on a boardwalk on the Outter Banks of NC.  They called tourists "Tourons" for Tourist Morons.  They're slogan was "Tourons have twenties"
