If you've ever had to contact the government of Canada, you know it's never easy to find a phone number to dial or an email to, er, email.

Warner Bros.

Some of the emails make sense. Like questions@tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca, for example.

Primark

Clear wording before the @ symbol, name of the department after. The classic gc.ca ending. Yup, we're all clear here.

But others, not so much. What is nc-comm-atip-aiprp-gd@hrsdc-rhdcc.gc.ca supposed to mean?

YouTube

Is this email address trying to spell "velociraptor"? vrab.vrabatip-tacraaiprp.tacra@vrab-tacra.gc.ca

Universal Pictures

Is it a message to aliens? NRCan.media_relations-media_relations.RNCan@canada.ca

Pixar

Seriously, just try to sound one of them out. No, wait! Try to spell one from memory.

What the hell, government?
