I've seen too many of those kinds of comments in the review part of a recipe. I think I read those reviews just for the humor of it! Seriously people, if you CHANGE the recipe, you can't complain to anyone but yourself if it tastes like garbage.

I end up telling people, I don't know what recipe that you used, but that isn't my recipe!

That is "aboot" the funniest goose joke I've ever seen.

None of our Canadian friends seem to care for it so far...

I thought it was good except for "aboot".

I don't think anyone is offended. I'm not. Just tired of the "aboot" jokes. We can hear that we say it differently than Yanks do, but doesn't sound like "a boot" to us.

taxy, I must have spent five minutes searching for a closer phonetic spelling than that. Looked ALL over. It just can't be spelled out. I suppose I could have looked for an audio clip, but I have a short attention span.

I know. It's really hard to explain the difference. We've heard lots of Yanks trying to imitate it by saying "a boot".

A lot of the time I have the attention span of a kitten.

Being half Canadian, I find I can slip in and out of the accent quite naturally, especially when I'm in Canada. Most of the time I can talk like normal people.

So you can speak normally on either side of the border.
