DO I HAVE AN ODD SENSE OF HUMOUR???


This joke was sent to me and I decided to pass it along...


F0r you Americans out there..substitute Newfoundland for Louisiana or Mississippi (hee hee hee)




Two Newfoundlanders


Bill and Tom are two Newfies working at the local sawmill. One day Bill slips and his arm gets caught and severed by the big bench saw. Tom quickly puts the limb in a plastic bag and rushes it and Bill to the local hospital.


Next day, Tom goes to the hospital and asks after Bill. The nurse says, 'Oh he's out in Rehab exercising'. Tom couldn't believe it, but here's Bill out the back exercising his now reattached arm. The very next day he's back at work in the saw mill.


Couple of days go by, and then Bill slips and severs his leg on another bloody big saw thing. So Tom puts the limb in a plastic bag and rushes it and Bill off to hospital.


Next day he calls in to see him and asks the nurse how he is.
The nurse replies, 'He's out in the Rehab again exercising. And sure enough, here's Bill out there doing some serious work on the treadmill. And Bill comes back to work.


But, as usual, within a couple of days he has another accident and severs his head. Wearily Tom puts the head in a plastic bag and transports it and Bill to hospital.


Next day he goes in and asks the nurse how Bill is. The nurse breaks down and cries and says, 'He's dead.'


Tom is shocked, but not surprised. 'I suppose the saw finally did him in.' 'No,' says the nurse, 'Some dopey bastard put his head in a plastic bag and he suffocated.'



As always, to be continued..........

biddie - lmao glad it gave you a giggle too...I have a warped mind..lmao.

alekx - umm yeah that is sort of the point..lmao.

PSS- glad ya liked it...looking forward to Dr Wang tomorrow..lol.

dorky - newfies are thought of as people that aren't the sharpest pencil in the box. I have never visited that end of the country but the few newfies I have met have been a LOT smarter than me...then again that's not saying much..lmao.

corky - my humour comes from years of "trekking" instead of socializing..lmaoooooo.

LMAO, Flake! Good one! I do love a good Newfie joke!

Dorky, I'll add here that Newfoundland is mostly an island province, accessible only by ferry. The main industry there is fishing, which is usually passed from father to son. Many boys dropped out of school young to work their father's fishing boats, and they hold on to their culture VERY hard! They have a very unique accent and can sound "hick-ish" but I have never met a warmer, freindlier, hard working person as a Newfie! It's unfortunate that we poke fun at them, but then, they started it! LOL!

Sorry to keep rambling on in YOUR blog, Flake! I'll shut up now!

being a newfie the characters in this comic don't come close to portraying a stereotypical Newfoundlander.. the dialogue is completely off along with the attire and their instruments.. so please don't label this comic as to what a newfie looks like.. there has to be millions of comics out there making fun of newfies, now get out there and find some better material dammit.
