Mensagem: 

Years ago in Canada I bought a copy of "Canajun, eh"  It was a hilarious book about Canadian speech.  One part that stands out in my mind was about "The Unguarded Front Ear".  Well, what they meant was "the unguarded frontier".  Funny book.

 

I heard a Boy Scout story long ago.  Supposedly it was true.  At a Boy Scout camp in the USA, every year Canadian Scouts would come for a week or two.  An American Scout got tired of hearing "Eh" all the time and yelled out, "Eh, eh, eh!  Is that all you know?"  A Canadian Scout yelled back, "When we come back next year we'll teach you the rest of the alphabet!"  (eh = A    eh-B-C-D)
