Questions about Canada and the Olympics

Q: I have never seen it warm on Canadian TV, so how do the plants grow?(UK)

Q: Will I be able to see Polar Bears in the street? (USA)
A: Depends on how much you've been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Vancouver to Toronto. Can I follow the Railroad tracks? (Sweden)
A: Sure, it's only Four thousand miles, take lots of water.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Canada? (UK)
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you tell me the regions in British Columbia where the female population is smaller than the male population? (Italy)
A: Yes, gay nightclubs.

Q: Are there supermarkets in Toronto and is milk available all year round? (Germany)

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Canada, but I forget its name. Its a kind of big horse with horns. (USA)
A: Its called a Moose. They are tall and very violent, eating the brains of anyone walking close to them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.

As explained at Snopes, these are all "fake" questions.  More at the link.

  1. He he...
    There are some real (and interesting) "dumb questions" around, though: see http://www.smh.com.au/travel/ask-a-stupid-question-tourists-dumbest-requests-20100121-mnft.html

  2. Ah ah ah, I like that. Reminds me of the time I was a student in the US (Massachussetts): I was asked (seriously), if we had microwaves in France...

  3. That's hilarious. Although, I wouldn't be surprised some are real.

  4. Totally hilarious! They may be fake, but I have heard serious questions like this every once in a while. I live near the Canadian border on Lake Superior. A tourist once asked me, "What is this river we have been driving next to for the last couple of hours?" They were serious.

  5. "Since everything's frozen all winter, how do you bury your dead?", asks American 12-yr-old.
    "We don't. We feed them to the sled dogs", quips my 12-year-old sister.

  6. "Vegan hunter-gatherers" cracked me up!

    I've also seen "are there birds in Canada?" on another list of this sort.
