People in my neck of the woods say "I seen" instead of "I saw".  I used to think this was everywhere but IS it ?

It is, but not necessarily among those with a high school diploma.

But it doesn't have a hole. Jambuster describes it perfectly. When you bite it, the jam busts out.

I don't dislike the name jambuster.

How about they call it "Powder-Mouth Jammy Explosioso?

I just heard that a "Saskatoon handshake" is a punch to the jaw. That's better than a "Winnipeg handshake," which has always meant a stab to the gut.

A Shawinigan handshake is a claw-choke to the face.

There was an article in the paper today saying "dainties" ( i.e., tiny square cakes like Nanaimo bars, often served at afternoon gatherings) are a Winnipegism.
Nobody else in the world calls tiny cakes "dainties"? I don't believe it

Never heard the term!  Nice one!
