you know you're from montreal when

You must be a Montrealer if...

You pronounce it "Muntreal", not "Mahntreal".

You have ever said anything like "I have to stop at the guichet before we get to the dep."

Your only concern about jaywalking is getting a ticket.

You understand and frequently use terms like 'unilingual,' 'anglophone,' 'francophone,' and 'allophone.'

You agree that Montreal drivers are crazy, but you're secretly proud of their nerves of steel.

The most exciting thing about the South Shore is that you can turn right on a red.

You know that the West Island is not a separate geographical formation.

In moments of paranoia, you think that there's no red line on the Metro because red is a federalist colour.

You have to bring smoked meat from Schwartz's and bagels from St-Viateur if you're visiting anyone west of
Cornwall.

You refer to Tremblant as "up North."

You know how to pronounce Pie IX.

You have an ancient auntie who still says "Saint Dennis."

You believe to the depth of your very being that Toronto has no soul - but your high school reunion is held in Toronto because most of your classmates live there now.

You greet everyone, from lifelong bosom friends to some one you met once a few years ago, with a two-cheek kiss.

You know at least one person who works for the CBC, and at least one other person who used to work for Nortel.

You're not impressed with hardwood floors.

You've been hearing Celine Dion jokes longer than anyone else.

You can watch soft-core porn on broadcast TV, and this has been true for at least 25 years.

You cringe when Bob Cole pronounces French hockey player names.

You get Bowser & Blue.

You were drinking cafe-au-lait before it was latte.

You order
fries 'with sauce', not 'with gravy'.

Shopper's Drug Mart is Pharmaprix and Staples is Bureau en Gros, and PFK is finger lickin' good.

You really believe Just For Laughs is an international festival.

For two weeks a year, you are a jazz afficianado.

You need to be reminded by prominent signage that you should wait for the green light.

Everyone on the street - drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists - think they're immortal, and that you'll move first.

You're proud that Montreal is the home of Pierre Trudeau, Mordechai Richler, William Shatner, Leonard Cohen and the Great Antonio...and, you consider Donald Sutherland (and by default, Keifer), Guy Lafleur, Charlie Biddle, and
Roch Carrier Montrealers, too.

You know that Rocket Richard had nothing to do with astrophysics.

You know the apocryphal story of the fat lady at Eaton's.

You miss apostrophes.

You've seen Brother Andre's heart.

No matter
how bilingual you are, you still don't understand "ile aux tourtes."

You know the difference between the SQ, the SAQ, and the SAAQ.

You measure temperature and distance in metric, but weight and height in Imperial measure.

You show up at a party at 11 p.m. and no one else is there yet.

April Wine once played your high school (alternatively, Sass Jordon or Gowan).

You know that Montreal is responsible for introducing the following to North America: bagels, souvlaki, smoked meat and Supertramp. Also, Chris de Burgh. And Arcade Fire.

You don't drink pop or soda, you drink soft drinks.

You have graduated from high school and have a degree, but you've never been in grade 12.

The margarine in your fridge is the same colour as lard.

Every once in a while, you wonder whatever happened to Luba.

You never thought that Corey Hart was cool, but you know someone whose cousin or something dated him.

There
has to be at least 30 cm of snow on the ground in less than 24 hours for you to consider it too snowy to drive.

You remember where you were during the Ice Storm.

You used to be an Expos fan, but now all you really miss is Youppi. (HAHAHAHA I laughed my *** off this one HAHAHAHA - KK)

You're a Habs fan; always was, always will be...

You know that your city's reputation for beautiful women is based on centuries-old couplings between French soldiers and royally-commissioned ****** (aka Les Filles du Roi).

You don't understand anyone from Lac-St-Jean, but you can fake the accent.

You've been to the Tam Tams, and know they have nothing to do with wee Scottish hats.

You discuss potholes like most people discuss weather.

You encounter bilingual homeless people.

While watching an American made-for-TV movie, you realize that "Vienna" is actually Old Montreal, that "New York" is actually downtown and that the "The Futuristic City" is actually Habitat '67.

You
find it amusing when people from outside Quebec compliment you on how good your English is.

You have yet to understand a single announcement made on the Metro PA system, no matter what the language.

You think of Old Montreal as nothing but a bunch of over-priced restaurants, old buildings and badly paved streets.

You understand that La Fete Nationale is not a celebration of "Quebec's birthday".

You don't find American comedians speaking "gibberish" French even remotely funny.

You don't find it weird that there's a strip club on every corner downtown

funny post but that thing about Pierre-Eliot Trudeau......... agrrrr. No I'm not proud of this at all.

And of course that's very illocical that we use both imperial and metric systems at the same time.

He also put the countries finance in trouble.

The only think I liked about Trudeau is that he standed against the USA about Cuba.

Other than that he's the politician I hate the most. Every time they show old footage of the october crisis in the 70s, when a CBC reported asked him if it was not over-reacting to send the army and arrest innocent people, and how far it will go, he answers: just watch me.

Man I wish I could punch him in the face.

I love how separatists say that Trudeau put the country in finance trouble but they still try deny that the PQ put the province of Quebec in the same kind of trouble the years before Charest took the control

anyway we should stop with the political debates

well that's not exactly true and it's not like Charest is going to get reelected.

well, back on the subject, it's a funny post, let's not go on politics because it will get closed and I will feel bad about it, it was a very good and funny post...

Good list LOL.

Supertramp and de Burgh were popular throughout Canada, not just Montreal. Same thing with Nazareth.

I still remember the fight my sister had with my parents over going to the Crime of the Century concert in ottawa - took her quite awhile to forgive them LOL.

Holy crap can you people stop refering to us as "the separatists", like if we were a religion or something. First off, the PQ is just a party among others, that appends to be separatist. I would vote "yes", but I don't give a ******* about the PQ, they're just as stupid as the Liberals with the only difference being there constitutional positions. It's not like being sovereignist is an impostant part of our lives. I'm not really patriotic about Québec, but like most people living here (even a bunch of those who aren't sovereignist), I don't consider myself as a Canadian and I actually don't care about Canada. I have nothing against it, but it's just another country to me.

As for Trudeau, the fact he sent the army here should have been enough for him to spend the rest of his life in prison. Renaiming the airport for him is a total disgrace...
