"This term is stereotypically associated with Canada. Some uses of it outside of Canada can convey that you are trying to sound (sarcastically) Canadian." I strongly suspect this applies only in the US and the statement should be thus qualified. I have never encountered this stereotype in the Antipodes. Nurg 23:32, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

I haven't heard it in the UK either, but then I would be at a lost about how to sound Canadian, apart from sounding slightly American. 00:00, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Because the word is quite normal in New Zealand where I live, I have never heard it being used in Canadian imitations. Gott wisst 02:42, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
South Park has used it this way, and is well known outside the US. Some more info at Eh. Equinox 02:45, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
