Hoser is both a slang term and a derogatory term, originating from Canada and used primarily by those imitating Canadians. It is not often used by Canadians, but it is sometimes used as "typical" Canadian slang by others, unlike the expression "eh?" used frequently by Canadians. The term "hoser" gained popularity from the comedic skits by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas (also known as Bob and Doug McKenzie) in SCTV’s "The Great White North" segments.
