The world will end at midnight tonight -- 12:30 in Newfoundland. From poking fun at our regional differences and our cultural mosaic to joking wryly about our political culture, Canadians have a special brand of humour:
Q: How are Canadian politicians like diapers?
A: They should be changed often, and for the same reason.
Q: How many Canadians does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. Canadians don't change light bulbs. We accept them the way they are.
Two Newfies are out hunting. One of them suddenly grabs his chest and collapses on the ground. The other guy pulls out his cell phone and dials 911.
''My friend is dead!'' he screams at the operator. ''What should I do?''
''Now, calm down, sir,'' replies the operator. ''The first thing you must do is make sure that he's dead.''
Suddenly, the operator hears a loud gunshot.
The Newfie comes back on the phone and says, ''Okay, now what?''
Q: What do you call a Canadian who becomes world-famous as an actor, a scientist, a musician or an athlete?
A: An American.
WARNING: Some of these jokes are sick, and a few are just plain offensive. But all of them are wildly funny and well worth retelling!
