    and tell lots of Newfie jokes, a selection of which can be found here:

    Newfie Jokes
    Newfoundlanders worldwide are known for their ability to laugh at themselves. We create some of the best jokes in the world and we can most all take a good ribbing from others, including non Newfoundlanders. We don't run and cry racism when someone tells a "newfie joke" we take it in the spirit of a joke. If it was meant as an insult, we don't care about that either, we know they're just jealous because they are not Newfoundlanders.  

    If this Newfoundlander's website is to be believed, they don't mind the jokes.

    One sample Newfie joke from the set reference above:

    Pope and Newfie Chauffeur  

    The Pope had just finished a tour of Newfoundland and was taking a limousine to Gander airport. Having never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while. Well, the chauffeur didn't have much of a choice, so he climbed into the back of the limo and the Pope took the wheel. The Pope hopped on the TCH and started accelerating to see what the limo could do. He got up to about 95 miles per hour when he saw the flashing blue lights of a police car in his mirror. He pulled over and the officer came to his window.

    Stunned, the officer said, "Just a moment, your Eminence, I need to call in to the station!" The officer radioed in and asked for the chief.

    "I've got a REALLY important person pulled over and I need to know what to do."

    "Who is it? The mayor?" asked the chief.

    "No sir, even more important than that," replied the officer.

    "Is it the Premier?"

    "No sir. It's someone more important than the Premier."

    "What the hell did you do, pull over the PM?"

    "No sir, it's not the PM," the officer replied.

    "THEN WHO THE HELL IS IT?" screamed the chief.

    "Well Sir, I don't exactly know," said the officer, "but he's got the Pope as his chauffeur!"
