My Neck of the Woods Humour....

Listen up City Slickers & out of province Tourists

1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Turn your cap right, your head isn't crooked.

3. Let's get this straight; it's called a 'dirt road.' I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

4. They are cattle. They're live steaks. That's why they smell funny to you. But they smell like money to us. Get over it.

5. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000 tractors.

6. So every person in Rural NS waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

7. If that cell phone rings while an 8-point buck and 3 does are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

8. Yeah we eat beans & brown bread. You really want sushi & caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.

9. The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

10. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

11. No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

12. When we set a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup.

13. You bring 'coke' into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice.

14. You bring 'Mary Jane' into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

15. NHL and Minor Hockey is as important here as the Leafs and Habs, and more fun to watch.

16. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it spooks the fish.

17. Colleges? We have them all over. We have Universities and Community Colleges. They come outta there with an education plus a love for country, and they still wave at everybody when they come for the holidays.

18. We have a whole ton of folks in the Canadian Forces. So don't mess with us. If you do, you will get whipped by the best.

19. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump crap ain't music, anyway. We don't want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers. Refer back to #1.

20. 2 inches of snow isn't a blizzard - it's a vacation. Drive like you got some sense in it, and DON'T take all our bread, milk, from the grocery stores. This ain't Alaska, worst case you may have to live a whole day without croissants. The pickups with snow blades and Tractors with Snow Blowers will have you out the next day.


  1. LOL! We get the people I refer to as "Boat People"- the cruise ship crowd. And although we love that they come here and spend $$$, man, if one more wanders out in front of my car in the middle of downtown traffic, I may not be responsible for my actions. I'm a very impatient driver.

    I had to laugh at the snow blade comment. There was an English couple walking in front of me and they were amazed by a pickup with a snow blade. This was 2 weeks ago- in September. Yes, there are people who leave them on year round. I don't even see it.

  2. Wow, rural Nova Scotians sound just as red-neck as us Albertans! LOL

    What a laugh!

  3. Kailana -

    Sounds like northern Michigan - the real northern Michigan, the UP. It's always nice to get the town back after a long summer of fudgies.


  4. Hahaha This is fantastic, I really love #6, the only thing missing was something about tailgate beer at the local legion hall on a Saturday night :)

  5. Too funny! I'm sure this could used for the rural area I grew up in!!
