I often inserted remarks when talking with people in Texas that some people might not see the humor in. But Texans did. It was fun.
I would say something like ‘Alberta is bigger than Texas‘. A remark that was met with ‘no it’s not‘. Then I would say ‘Alberta beef is better than Texan beef‘. After saying ‘No it’s not,’ I often got puzzled looks and a comment ‘You’re not anything like I imagined a Canadian would be like.’ It seemed to be a real ice-breaker.
