    Careful with this guy. His 'eh' comment sounds like the typical US joke about English-speaking Canadians!

    Yes it was! I've spent enough time in Toronto to know that it's a horrible caricature though...in fact, I've never heard anyone up there say it. The first smiley icon was also a reference to the way Canadian characters are drawn on SouthPark.

    The first lesson in speaking Torontonian: pronounce the city name as "toh-rahn-oh", the second T is silent

    I got busted on this one my last trip up there! People kept smiling when I would say the name...eventually I found someone who wasn't too polite to tell me

    Kinda like my home town, no one says, "lih-tull-rok"...it's almost Li'Rock. just the slightest L before the R.

    Clever icon.

    The 'eh's are a private thing we break out only when outsiders aren't around. You, sir, are not in the circle of trust!

    Shh! Please keep stuff like this under your hat, Len. Hush-hush.

    But I agree - and tire having to pronounce it 'To-ron-to' so that foreigners can understand.
