I get it.

Even though we're neighbors, it doesn't mean that Canada and the US don't have their differences.

Some of these disparities may be small — for example, in Canada they call a garbage disposal a "garburator" and they like to throw the letter U into words like "color," "favorite," and "neighbor."

It reminds me of when people make that "this is getting uncomfortable" face and slowly back out of the room. Relatable AF.

9. This made my day. Also, what was the answer?

I don't know if this is about countries anymore or the premise of every 1980s family sitcom. You know, the ones without laugh tracks, à la The Wonder Years.
