Sounds more like hate

Sounds more like hate literature than jokes.

It is hate and should be

It is hate and should be taken off of here. Who gives you the right to judge

Horrible... people aren't

Horrible... people aren't like this in Newfoundland.
That isn't true... none of it is.
2 hours of work? Yeah right, many people work hard, long days..

It is humour

This is not meant to be the truth. It is meant to be humour by stereotype, which is funny to most people.

I Agree

I totally Agree with you!! Newfoundlanders are very hard working people. Its the people on Wel-fare popping out kids every year just to make money. Now don't get me wrong. I know some people need wel-fare cause they can't work for medical reasons and so on.

People really need to stop dissing us. We are by far the most caring and decent kind of people, it takes that type of person laugh at jokes about themselves. But these jokes are stupid, theres not even jokes, their Insults!!

Canadian Humor: Top 10 Reasons to Live in Newfoundland

i take offense to this

I am from Newfoundland and we have many things to be proud of I am sure Mr Kalhid that you may be born or imigrated to this wonderful province but you have no idea what it is really like. The people of Newfoundland work hard they are educated and we have many talented artists and so forth coming from this great province. I can understand Newfoundland humour and love it as well but your form of Newfoundland humour is degrading " stupidest province in Confederation" come on True Newfoundland humour isn't about degrading people it is about our ways of dealing with life and the things that get thrown our way. No matter what happens we still are able to get thru it all Maybe you should reconsider this and redo your top ten reasons to live in such a breathtaking province it is not everywhere that u can sit on your back step and have a coffee and see the beauty of nature as the whales come up. I look out my back door and I see "crack addicted people". violence, people barley making enough money to survive. I see prostitues trying to make a few bucks for their next hit or to feed their kids. Wow what a difference from the world that I came from to the world that I now see. Once I am done school I plan on coming back to what u describe as the stupidest province. We may be stupid but we are loving, kind, and we are full of passion about our fellow human beings. Think twice before you discharge what u call humour
