Thanks to Don for sending this one. Of course, he's from Newfoundland!
Two newfies, George and Frank, are
getting tired of Newfoundland and start to think about moving out west for a
better life. George is all for it but Frank is a bit skeptical.
George says, 'Frank, bye, the work is plentiful, lotsa tings ta do and it'll be a good change fer us'.
Frank replies, 'I know, George, but what about the Atlantic ? Won't you miss the fishin' and smell of the salt water in the morning?'
George agrees, but offers a great idea, 'Well, Frank, why don't you take your fishin' dory witcha and whenever you start to miss the rock you can hop in your dory and fantasize about St. Johns. '
Well, that's all it took to convince Frank, and they strap the dory to the roof of the truck and off they go.
Well, it's been 4 days drivin' and Frank is really missin' Newfoundland , so George stops the truck in the middle of the prairies and says, 'Look out at those flat wheat fields, Frank, doesn't that remind you of the ocean, the way the wind is blowing through the grain?'
Frank replies, 'Lard tundrin' Jesus, George, you're right!'
They unhook the dory and haul it out to the middle of the field, sit back, relax and start rowing.
Well, it just so happens that, at the same time, another Newfie is on his way back from Alberta and spots the plates on their truck and then notices the two of them out on the field rowin' away.
Well the passer-by gets so angry he stops his truck, hops out and begins to scream at them.
'No wonder the whole country t''inks we're stupid ; look at you two fools out there rowin. If I could swim I'd come out there and kick yer asses!"
