    I was wondering why New Yorkers hate Canadians and New Jersi-ans. Why is that? I'm half-asian half-french, so I've always been wondering that, when watching some movies and TVSeries..

    I never heard about that before and I'm Canadian.

    Canada is widely considered to be a "pansy" nation in the USA. I don't know why.

    New Jersey... Watch an episode of "Jersey Shore".

    Well, they don't hate Canadians. They just keep making fun of the poor guys. Like how they're scared of the dark.
    Why they hate new Jersians just seem odd to me o.O

    I don't have canadians. And I am a New Yorker. But I remember my teacher used to think canadians were stupid.

    Canadians, we treat like our younger sibling - they're up there just dinkin around, and we tease 'em.

    As for New Jersey....watch Jersey Shore.

    Jersey Shore isn't an accurate representation of New Jersey. It's a bunch of people getting drunk, partying, and acting like macho men. If you want real New Jersey you drive out to where I am and you'll see nothing but fields surrounded by densely populated communities of generic looking housing. Well, not my street though, but some local places are just like The Stepford Wives of houses.

    New Yorkers hate everyone, get used to it.

    Well yes, I've been told that. And how they think they're living in the best city and everything. That actually bums me out.

    We hate them for being smart and staying out of wars while we suffer and fight unnecessary fights like men.

    Canada I suppose because they haven't been involved in many world events. New Jersey may be because of the Jersey Shore, but it's not THAT terrible here. It's just like the suburbs, only people don't make fun of bad driving (we're used to it from lost New Yorkers here [​IMG] ). I heard from my friend in new York that New Yorkers hate New Jerse-ians because some go the NYC and act like hot shit, browse around, and never make an attempt to do anything productive.

    Actually, I was wondering about this because of How I Met Your Mother.
    Ted keeps saying he hates nothing more than New Jersey, and the whole gang makes fun of Canada xD

    I doubt they would hate New Jersey just because of Jersey Shore. It'd be silly. Actually, I don't hate them, that's why I've been wondering.

    I think you've been watching too much 'How I Met Your Mother'. haha. [​IMG]

    Examples?

    Barney: Ok, that's it. [stands up on top of chair] Attention, Canada. I'm Barney, from America, and I'm here to fix your backward-ass country. Number one, get real money. [shows Canadian dollar bill] Don't know what board game this came from, but it's a [in French accent] joke...

    Robin: I am Canadian. Remember? We celebrate Thanksgiving in October.
    Ted: Oh right I forgot. You guys are weird and you pronounce the word 'out', 'oot'.
    Robin: You guys are the world's leader in hand gun violence; your health care system is bankrupt and your country is deeply divided on almost every important issue.
    Ted: [pause] Your cops are called 'mounties'.

    Lily: Ted, if you murder me and bury me in New Jersey, I'll hunt you forever.
    Ted: But if I murder you and bury somewhere else?
    Lily: Hey, I'll leave you alone. I'm sure you had your reasons

    So yeah, Canada and NJ = America hates it.
