Coming Next week TD 329 My Home and Native Land

Post by macrae1234 » Mon Jan 09, 2017 4:01 pm

While I live in the Southwest I was born in in Canada so I have created a Canadiana TD. I have also added a new twist to this TD. Maybe the Mrs and I have been watching too many celebrity/first responder/home town heroes episodes of "Who wants to be a Millionaire". so instead of Switch the Question you will be able to Switch the Answer. In addition to Drop and Sheep you will be able to substitute a second answer from another question and get the points for that answer. You have to have answered the question it can't be a drop or a sheep.

Since this is a Canada quiz, should you ask for help from some hoster hoser instead?
"The COMPLETE GUIDE To Republican Ethics: tRump Edition" is right ===> here

Did you know the origin of hoser is that in outdoor ice hockey before ice resurfacers, the losing team in a hockey game would have to hose down the rink after a game to make the ice smooth again. Thus the term hoser was synonymous with loser.

Some years ago, CBC's "The National" newscast ran a occasional series on Canadian English. From that I learned about toques, gas bars, and bumbleberry pie--but not hosers.

Fun fact: Most cable systems in Greater Detroit (where I live) carry the CBC station from Windsor, Ontario, because "Hockey Night in Canada" is so popular around here.
