A Canadian Standoff [Pic]. Sort of like a Mexican Standoff, but a lot less exciting.

Everywhere in Quebec other than Montreal is full of people who will string you up like a bagel if you don't speak french.

Other than that we`re all just pleased as punch to be mentioned by you famous `Murican folk.

@patchgrabber

Oh ya that is very true I forgot about Quebec. Very clean though probably cause they bring the sweepers out every night.

'Many Canadians, particularly in Ontario, do pronounce it like "a-boat" but I`ve never in my life heard anyone say "a-boot" without saying it as a joke.`

My guess is that it started with "a-boat," which is pretty common from my experience, and somewhere along the lines, Americans changed the joke to "aboot," in some sort of cultural game of telephone.

I knew a Newfoundlander who'd say "aboot" now and then. Usually if he was excited about something and talking really fast... it would kinda slip out.

@patchouly is correct: There`s worse things than being know throughout the world as "really polite"...
