    So "let's take it back to the Maritimes, man" — If you're a real Bluenoser, you would know...

    1. Well, for one, you know what the "Bluenose" is.

    2. You know that Nova Scotia is home to real donair: Donair egg rolls, donair burgers, donair-don't care.

    ("Though I did have a good donair in Edmonton last night... they are catching on.")

    3. But the real meat egg rolls are found at local Chinese restaurants.

    4. The only hockey team you should be concerned about is the Halifax Citadels.

    5. Or, if you go back a little further, the Nova Scotia Oilers.

    6. BTW, it's undisputed that Al MacInnis was the hardest shot in the NHL.

    7. Real Nova Scotians prefer to pronounce our "R's" with a little extra R. And our "abouts" and "outs"" with just a little more ooouuuut.

    8. Anyone knows that the candy cane towers in Dartmouth are iconic.
