Incidentally, I’m trying to propagate this term as gently-pejorative slang for a Canadian. It was invented by an Irish friend of mine, and I haven’t used it for a while. When you go abroad, or meet foreigners here, encourage them to refer to you as a moose tickler. The image it generates in my head makes me laugh–as if it were some bizarre national sport, like cow-tipping.
I also welcome any grammarians’ opinions on whether it should be one word or two.
