“What is Canada’s favorite board game?"/"Sorry!”

Canadians have a reputation for politeness. A joke is:

Q: What is Canada’s favorite (board) game?
A: Sorry!


“Canada’s favorite board game. Sorry. Haha. #WereSoPolite” was posted on Twitter on April 6, 2012. “Anyone who says hockey is Canada’s favorite game has clearly forgotten about Sorry!” was posted on Twitter on July 12, 2013.

“Some day, Canada will rule the world. Then you’ll all be sorry” and “The Canadian bodybuilder said, ‘I’m sore, eh’” are related jokes.


Wikipedia: Sorry! (game)
Sorry! is a board game that is based on the ancient cross and circle game Pachisi. Players try to travel around the board with their pieces faster than any other player. Originally manufactured by W.H. Storey & Co in England and now by Hasbro, Sorry! is marketed for two to four players, ages six through adult. The game title comes from the many ways in which a player can negate the progress of another, while issuing an apologetic “Sorry!”
