Are there no douchebags in Canada?

A couple months ago, I wrote about the word douchebag and my grandmother's unironic use thereof. Since then, do you know that at least 73 people have visited Orange Tangerine because they did a search for douchebag? Most of them are Canadian. What drives the Canadians to search the internets for douchebag information? Has douchebag-the-item never existed there? Or is douchebag-the-insult only beginning to catch on? If you are Canadian and can shed some light on this, please do.

The one time someone used the search terms "orange douchebag," it led to this linguistics-related post.

Update! Someone at Pixar just Googled douchebag and visited this site. I loved "Monsters Inc.," "Finding Nemo," and "The Incredibles," not to mention the "Toy Story" movies. I can't wait to see what Pixar does with douchebags! Fun for the whole family.

73 Canadians searching for douchebags? Sounds like the name of a band.
A real mystery!

HAHAHAHAHA, I just have to say that really cracked me up. I live about 20 minutes south of the Canadian border (hubby works for Customs). If they are buying douchebags they are probably doing it down here! Now I'm thinking about going to the mall and yelling it out, since it is mostly filled with Canadians anyway and see what they say hehe.

I live in Fredericton New Brunswick,and yes we do have both types of douche bags here... all the ones I have seen are a reddish orange colour and can be found in any local pharmacy.As for the other type of douchebag I imagine any city or town has its lowlifes and sketchy people. keep up the good work, interesting blog!!

I live in Toronto, Ontario and I have no idea why people are googling "douchebag". I have never googled douchebag but I'll ask around for ya. :D
