From an author who hails from none other than the town of Dildo, Newfoundland, this book celebrates the hilarious tradition of the Newfie joke, many of which were likely made up by residents of 'The Rock': * Q: Why did the Newfies get excited when they heard Quebec was separating from Canada?

The 1 maple leaf rating allowed me to submit this, otherwise it would be minus leaves..,,a maple in January)
