Oh, Canada — our friendly neighbor (or should that be “neighbour”) to the north. It’s true: Americans don’t know nearly as much about you as you do about us, and what we do know tends to be limited to cold weather, poutine, maple leaves, ice hockey, your hot prime minister, Tim Horton’s, Dave Coulier, and the fact that your Thanksgiving is earlier than ours. All that being said, we know that we really shouldn’t be making Canadian jokes at your expense. As a country, you’re exceptionally polite. In fact, many jokes about Canadians are based on the citizens’ good manners and kind ways.

That’s not only because you’re a genuinely polite country, but also because we’re a little jealous of you — what with your affordable healthcare and cities that look like they’ve been plucked out of Europe. Plus, you’re the home of Lucy Maud Montgomery and her gift to the world, Anne Shirley. Sure, you may use the metric system, but we probably should too, at this stage. And we know it can get cold up there, but we hear that July and August are beautiful. So, please don’t be offended by these Canadian jokes, because they’re our way of saying that we care.

Now, it’s time for some (friendly) jokes about Canadians.
