Whoa, can't let that one by: we know what a snowmobile is up here (c'mon,
fellow Canucks, back me up on this one!); mind you, if you asked ME what
a snowmobile is, I would indeed look at ya kind of funny (oops, funnily, for
the language police), since apparently YOU don't know what it is or you
wouldn't be asking...

But a snow sled??? Who calls it that? Sounds like the SkiDoo trailer.

Anyway, one of us invented the thing, so we can call it what we like!

So there!

And as it's winter, and we *finally* have snow here, talk to some Western
Ontario Canadians and ask them what a "snowmobile" or "snow sled" is -
they'll most likely look at you funny, at least for a few seconds until it
sinks in. They go "skidooing" in the wintertime.
