In Chicago they just had a "Bacon Fest"

Hey there a lot of Canadians in the Chapala area and I have some questions:

Is "Canuck" considered an insult?
How about Gringo"?
Do you like Canadian Bacon better than "American" (gringo) bacon?

there is no such thing as canadian bacon[which is a gringo misnomer] which actually originated in england and is called pea meal bacon or back bacon and breakfast bacon[tocino] is not merkin either. it's made from pork belly. and ain't a gringo invention.. i like both for difernt reasons but no back bacon on pizza.

Pedro,
I think "merkin" is fairly insulting to the ladies. You may wish to rethink your jargon. For example : <it an't porn, it's HBO>. Jajaja. Douche.

I'm more interested in the term "Canako", and whether or not Canadians are familiar with it, and if they find it offensive.

Canuck is perfectly acceptable to most (all?) Canadians. I've never heard the term Canako. A quick Google search seems to suggest it has something to do with Japanese animation.

As Pedro suggested, we tend to call Canadian bacon back bacon. It's pretty good, but it's not bacon.

we have now educated neighbours and amongst our moto clubs to call us hosers.
towards the end of our moto gathering yesterday,we hosers outnumbered the gringos by 8to 1, being almost equal in number to our mexican amigos.
and yes what does japanese anime have anything to do with the price of tea in china?

Did the MacKenzie brothers invent the term hosers, or did they just popularize it?

Google to the rescue!

"The origin of the term is unclear. The Oxford English Dictionary records the first use in writing as being a 1981 Toronto Star article about the McKenzie brothers, and there is no clear evidence that the term was in use before then. Nonetheless, the term has spawned several popular false etymologies.[3]

The most popular origin story holds that in outdoor ice hockey before ice resurfacers, the losing team in a hockey game would have to hose down the rink after a game to make the ice smooth again. Thus the term "hoser" being synonymous with "loser". Another story holds that the term referred to farmers of the Canadian prairies, who would siphon gasoline from farming vehicles with a hose during the Great Depression of the 1930s"

So, probably invented by Bob & Doug.

“Gringo” also has an interesting etymology:

I've never been called a "Canuck".  Although I don't consider it to be insulting, I'd rather be referred to as a Canadian.  

I've been called a "Gringa" only once (to my face) by a 5 year old trying to get my attention.  I found it to be quite disrespectful and would definitely prefer to be addressed with the term Senora.  

Rosa Venus, I've never heard the term "Canako.

As far as bacon is concerned, I've never distinguished the two by "Canadian" or "American".  In our house, it's referred to as back bacon or bacon.  Bacon is our typical purchase for breakfast or flavour (yes, we spell it with a "u") in another dish and back bacon is typically an option for a pizza.

I find Pedro's constant use of the term "Merkin" quite offensive and totally humorless. We don't accept racial, ethnic or nationalist slurs on this board. Why is this acceptable? Pedro better watch out or he may yet have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.

Of course the use of merkin is offensive (as it is knowingly intended to be). He does it because he is allowed to get away with being demeaning and insulting. He is using a nationalist slur with a touch of misogyny thrown in. What is there for the perpetual adolescent not to enjoy?

i have used the word merkin to describe certain denizens of the excited states long before someone pointed out on thorne tree that that was the name of a pubic wig worn by both sexes that had std's among other things circa 1450. so after somebody pointed that out we all had a good laugh-ALL of us from around the world and even MERKINS. there is nothing misogynistic nor nationalistic about it except in peoples minds who look for such things because of their nature. the reason i first started using merkin instead of american is because yanquis ain't the only americans, not just because it's shorter . fer example i call canadians canuckleheads and canada canuckleheadland on ocassion.
may back bacon and a molson be with ya-jajajajajajuja!
using wiki as a source for everything never ceases to amaze me. to me that's the essence of lazy slothfulness

Never bothering to check any source or ignoring overwhelming facts confident that you must be right to me is the essence of lazy slothfulness.

Oh, sigh, I am such a naive old lady: I did not know what a merkin was. Thought it was an animal related to the beaver, which indeed it is;) Had to look it up. WELL, may I say that some of us ladies never considered the option because we do not need it. Just like you macho guys do not need a toupee, yes?

Sigh, I should never be allowed to post after my third beer!

"left coast swell". I never thought you'd stoop to flatter me. Shucks.
Smartalex, thanks for the clip. I hitched 10 miles to see that movie as a kid and hitched the 10 miles back after dark. Took my younger brother (by 2 yrs.) Parents were freaked. Grounded, worth it. Awesome flic, awesome cast.
Nobody has yet weighed in on the Youtube video: "It's not porn, it's HBO" LMAO.

When I was at the University of Montana, I called by Canadian friends "Canucks",but didn't get called "merkin" in return.
Ya can learn something new every day.

Can one be proud to be a Merkin?
Can a Redneck also be a Merkin?
