Torontonians are a special breed of human. We see things differently than other cities, we think differently than other cities, and ultimately we talk a little differently as well.
That's not to say we have a totally whole new language of our own (Although our Turruno slang, does get out of control sometimes). I'm just saying that there's a good chance that sometimes we say things that have a totally different meaning. Still have no idea what I'm talking about? Check these out.
