When I first came to Canada I went to buy a hot dog off the street vendor for lunch (yummmmmmm) but now I am sick of them, I think I OD’d on them.
He asked me if I had a Loonie.
The newly immigrated 7aki: “Ha? A loony? You mean a crazy person? Why would I have a loony?”
Hot dog guy : “What crazy person? I want a Loonie.”
The newly immigrated 7aki: blank.
Hot dog guy: “Do you have a dollar?”
The newly immigrated 7aki: You call your dollar a loony? Why on earth would you call it a loony?
Hot dog guy: Have no clue. We just call it a Loonie .
Yes, it’s called a loonie
And guess what they call the 2 dollar coin? A toonie.
awwwwwww, how cuuuuuttttteeeeeee. How can you hate a country that calls its dollar coin a Loonie and its 2 dollar coin a toonie?
By the way it’s called a loonie because it has a picture of a loon on the back, I googled it and I went to tell the hot dog guy….he he he
