The sheer ignorance of Canadian geography by our neighbours to the south is occasionally so ridiculous.

Case in point, while speaking to a supplier from upstate New York

"So how's the moose hunting this year?"
"Pardon, moose hunting? Umm...I'm in Toronto, there's not really a lot of hunting in the city"
"Oh...I hear it's good meat that moose meat, better than beef"
"Hmm...interesting, I'll have to try that the next time I'm up north"

Later in the same conversation

"You get good wild turkey in your area? Wild turkey is great eating."
"Oh really? We don't really get a lot of wild fowl or game in Toronto. Good people hunting if you want that though."
"Y'know biggest city in Canada, tons of people, all different colours too. Barely even have to aim."

The conversation went back to business fairly quickly after that point.
