Newfoundland is not like any other province of Canada. It has the oldest
history, the richest music and folklore . . . and the most relaxed lifestyle,
born of a colourful and romantic cultural heritage. But above all there is
the famous sense of humour. Newfoundlanders have the divine gift of
being able to laugh at their troubles, at their triumphs, and at themselves.
The stories and quips in this book are not the transplanted ethnic slurs
known as "Newfie Jokes". This collection is vintage Newfoundland
humour. It is also vintage Al Clouston.
