Shit Saskatchewanians Say

Only a few differences stand out ...  at my house we like Pilsner beer but don't buy it any longer because the brewery moved to Alberta. We now drink Great Western because it's the only beer made in Saskatchewan. We like to support local business as we're able.

And I don't give a shit about hockey or football.

The rest, though, is right on the money.


  1. K,

    this is so funny! So typical. This is what I love about being a Saskatchewan person. Yesterday there was a call in show on CBC radio about the figures of speech used here. The one I heard was "farms are so far apart now, every farmer needs his own tomcat!" Also I heard something about "give her snoose" which I didn't understand. Do you know what this means?



  2. I certainly do, Julie! It means Give 'er hell, give 'er all you've got, give 'er shit, go get 'er! Or if your vehicle was stuck in a dish and someone was pushing at the bumper, when it was time for the driver to hit the gas, the person at the bumper might call "Give 'er snoose!"
    I only caught part of the radio program, darn it, would've gotten a kick out of it.
