Canadians and french Canadians are a MUCH different breed... If I ever got offended, this would be the thing to do it.

Sorry I should clarify, not picking on French Canadians, but the fact that Canadian bacon is just not real bacon. The painting this is inspired by had French in it saying this is not a pipe, and had a picture of a pipe. The fact that French is the second official language of Canada is just a bonus

That's "Like, ok, eh". We use the "eh" at the end of the sentence. Sigh...Americans. (Rolls eyes).

Kind of like comparing a Canadian to an American?

I guess its a little late to tell you that most French Canadians wouldn't understand your shirt. Back bacon is an anglophone term, we would refer to your illustration as "du jambon" since it simply looks like a slice of ham.

I was doing "A OK" like "A OK partner" but with the Canadian "Eh"

I think that's the point. The audience isn't Canadians, since I assumed the term "Canadian bacon" doesn't mean much to them? But anyway, the point is that it IS just ham, not bacon. It looks like a slice of ham to Americans too.

Re: This is not bacon (resub)


As being a Québécois myself, I certainly feel no offense at all. Sorry JustJiggles, there is now way this would offend any French Canadian. (Or anyone at all but lovers of Canadian bacon)


You get my vote.

And another thing, I don't say "hey" or "aboot". I learned English watching the Price is Right, so I say "range" and "actual retail price".

Re: This is not bacon (resub)


Time to get all humorless up in here! Aw yeah.

1. Canadians don't refer to ANYTHING as Canadian bacon. That is a purely American term.
2. "Canadian bacon" is used to refer to back bacon (which is a type of bacon) but it is also used, irrationally, to refer to a type of ham. The picture you have here is a type of ham. It's not even back bacon. No Canadian, French-speaking or otherwise, would call it bacon. In my opinion, no one anywhere should call it bacon.
3. "Bacon" is an Anglicism, not actually commonly used in French. When it is used in French, it is italicized to indicate that it is of foreign origin.
4. "The Treachery of Images" is notoriously badly parodied. The point of "The Treachery of Images" is that the picture is of a pipe, but because it is just a picture, it is not really a pipe, hence the caption. Your picture is captioning something that isn't a picture of bacon, with the caption "this isn't bacon".

I love Magritte and I love bacon and I think calling this kind of ham "bacon" is nonsensical, so you'd think I'd be the ideal wearer of this shirt, but the concept is flawed. I think if that caption had said "this is bacon", that might have been sneakily brilliant. But as is, no.

I will say that your imitation of Magritte's style and writing is very good.

Ermm... thanks I guess To go over your points to show where I was coming from on it.

1. Shirt was made for Americans not Canadians
2. Refer to point one
3. Again point one (and it is italicized )
4. Magritte painted the pipe image to show that it was not a pipe just a representation. My image shows two things. First that it is not actually bacon because it is just an image and second that not only is it just an image, it is a poorly labled image because almost all Americans think of belly bacon when someone says bacon not the poorly named Canadian Bacon. Also see point one.

Not trying to attack Canadians, or French, just point out the obvious lack of awesomeness that Canadian bacon has compared to awesome REAL bacon, eh

Please.

3. I am French Canadian, and I eat non-italicized bacon.
The Franco-French don't eat bacon, they eat lardons, which is the same meat but in little cubes, not sliced. Serve it to them sliced and they will also call it bacon and they will not italicize.

Bacon actually comes from ancient French (like anything good in the English culture, wink wink) Bakko or Bakkon, and returned later to describe thinly sliced smoked and salted pork that the English, Americans and both kinds of Canadians eat.

4. For someone who calls this Canadian bacon, the shirt works, no? Sends them into a mental tailspin they will not recover from.

This is a fine shirt, but poor criticism.

Yay, in the fog!!! You're tearing it up this derby, tjost! I'm actually surprised that of all your designs, this is the only one in the fog. However, the week is young... :D

Very clever design. GMV!

Came back to this again because the joke(s) is/are funny. But, there also is no spoon. And I also still cannot wear a big pink blob on my chest.
Love you man, but I have to pass on this one.

Why is everyone talking about Canadians?! I'm Jewish. And I'm offended!

In all seriousness, I don't like this shirt. I appreciate where it's coming from but really not for me.

That's cool Kyle, I understand, maybe you'll be interested in my next piece in this series though. I'm going to call it "This is not a Gefilte Fish"

Hmmm. Pink and green do complement well, but... Ah, no.
And yes, I'll have some (real) bacon, please. And (honest) ham. OH, and lobster... This derby (and all you rad artists) really is(are) messing with my willpower.
