Ise the girl that posts the song

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Yesterday at work we were discussing provinces/territories we have the Power of Attorney to do certain business in.

When it came to Newfoundland one coworker mentioned how her mother-in-law was from Newfoundland and used to hate Newfie jokes, now she tells the best of them.

I pointed out that Newfie jokes were a Canadian rite of passage at one point, just like *that* song, which I started to sing. A couple of people joined in, and a few more coworkers came from their desks into the office with big smiles on their faces because the song brought back memories and/or they had Newfie ties.

Think I either learnt the song in school or at camp. Don't think they teach it anymore. Too bad. It's a fun jig and a piece of Canadiana.
