Saskatchewan License Plates

WTF is Saskatchewan?
Saskatchewan is a prairie province of Canada, known for it's incredible flatness and extending wheatfields (amongst other things). The province recently (within the last 5 years or so) decided to come up with a logo for their license plates. The entry that actually won was "Land of the Living Skies," but a lot of people thought some of these would be more appropriate ;) Enjoy!


A contest was held by the Edmonton Sun for people to send in their entries of what the Saskatchewan license plate should read. These were some of the entries:

  • Saskatchewan - It's a Dry Cold
  • Saskatchewan - Flat Out Great
  • Saskatchewan - Eat Our Dust
  • Saskatchewan - We're getting smartur??
  • Cruise Control Heaven
  • Land of the Leaving
  • Meet You in Alberta
  • Saskatchewan - A Place Where No Man Can Leap to His Death
  • Manitoba's Evil Twin
  • See Saskatchewan - Standing on a Chair
  • You've Arrived in Saskatchewan. Sorry About That.
  • Yours to Drive Through
  • We Are All Related!
  • Saskatchewan - Through the Straw Curtain

As well, other submissions were:

yay Saskatchewan!
I'm actually doing research for school about Canadian stereotypes and when I stumbled on your lj it was a nice break from the stiff articles I've been reading. Thanks for the laugh out loud!

Re: yay Saskatchewan!
Hehe you're welcome :)

I've come across a few other stereotypes that were a bit comical... lets see...

While travelling, a couple of people asked me if Calgary had indoor plumbing. They were Americans. People have asked me about living in an igloo before. Also Americans.

Hmm. My sister went to Greece and the locals there treated her like crap and said "American, Canadian... same thing." To which she replied in her most condescending tone, "Greece, Turkey... same thing." That got her some looks of horror and immediate appologies for the insult.

Have you heard of the group the Arrogant Worms? In their music, they will pretty much cover every Canadian stereotype that's ever been heard.

Oh yes, and the Molson Canadian Beer commecials... those as well are fantastic! If you have trouble finding them, let me know because I can probably hook you up ;)

Oh yes, and the Royal Canadian Air Farce as well as Double Exposure will get you some pretty good laughs on Canadian politics - also covers Canadian stereotypes :P

Here's one for the plates:

"We apologize for our CFL team"

Hope that one wasn't too bad!
