Vancouver 2010 on Facebook

Vancouver 2010 Olympics: Ever see 1,500 people dancing (and singing) in the street? / Avez-vous déjà vu 5000 personnes danser et chanter dans la rue?

The sentence is the same in both languages. The number... not so much.

I think Canadians have a very unique way of counting.


  1. Math is hard, eh?

  2. You tell me... do you have your own special kind? :)

  3. Haha. It could be just a typo, but it could also be a prod at Québec. Canada is pretty conservative about making a big show of things, but the québécois always get absolutely nuts whenever a party comes along. 1,500 anglophones to 5,000 francophones sounds about right.

  4. I like the last theory, I think I'll go with that one!
