Newfoundland is a rainy, chilly, half snowy, yet droopy nation within but certainly not controlled by, the British Empire. Located three and a half hours west of Great Britain by paddle boat it is the most eastern place in North America. A large paddle boat is kept for this purpose in the harbour of the Newfoundland port city, Dildo. The capital of Newfoundland, St. Drooper, is located underwater and is guarded by specially trained Droopers. Newfoundland boasts a variety of attractions and heritage, such as George Street, Thomas Amusements, and the many drinking spots scattered throughout the cities. Icelanders found this small, unremarkable country some time in the 900s. Iceland owns Newfoundland, the emperor of the Icelandic Empire, Björk, likes Newfoundland.

Leadership & Power[edit]

Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams making our province proud.

It is currently ruled by a Fascist Dictatorship under the superior leadership of Danny Williams(Soon to be overthrown by the not so bearded Crippy and his anti-communist party group, red-means-run). Newfoundland has been under communist rule since the fish stocks diminished on 14 February 1993. At this time the nation was ruled by Ray O'Neil, a troubled man, struggling to survive in his career. A revolution led by Danny Williams and his followers ousted the ruling O'Neil party from parliament which occurred on June 4th, 1993. This day has forever been known as "Buckmaster Circle Day" and is celebrated as a national holiday every year. A group of angry fisherman led by Danny Williams gathered their quads, ski-doos and whatever they owned and marched on to destroy the Parliament building located there. After successfully destroying O'Neil's rule, Williams quickly established a large military power led by General Joel Greek. With General Greek's ruthless tactics Newfoundland quickly conquered all of Canada in order to rule the most powerful military power in the world. Newfoundland's armed forces are known to be completely immune to all chemical and biological agents due to their heavy consumption of Tim Horton's coffee and Jam Jams. In recent months Newfoundland has developed a vast nuclear weapons department of its military and plans to compete against Korea in a neo-nuclear arms race. This tactic is code named MAY 2-4, and plans to result in as much disaster as the yearly celebration does. Williams has a strong control of the nation and is expected to begin WW3 with General Greek ruling along side him. Newfoundland is currently planning an invasion of Ontario as a retaliation against the pricks in Ottawa for screwing Newfoundland in the federal budget. Danny Williams himself is leading the charge on Toronto. The Peoples Army of Newfoundland is said to have 50 nuclear warheads ready to detonate under parliament hill at any time. These claims have since been disputed as a defector, 1 of the 4 black Newfoundlanders named Kyle Griffin, originally from Jamaica, has stated that there are no warheads under parliament hill. However he also stated that they have a bottle of screech, a purity cracker, a bucket of salt beef, and an old man who can play the spoons quite well.

Name[edit]

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador was named by John Cabot, the fifteenth century explorer, and his wife Toni Marie Wiseman (inventor of the first colour television). Its name is debatable for various reasons.

  • New. Obviously it wasn't really new, in the sense that the Beothuks, a tribe of Green Peace mercenaries, had been happily living there for ages. But then again, the Beothuks are all dead now, so arguably it doesn't really matter. Although perhaps we should honour their memory or something. And today, of course, Europeans have been living there for 500 years, and so it's actually "old" now, especially compared to the rest of Canada. Damn, names are complicated.
  • Found. Again, it had already been "found" before Cabot got there. Although on the other hand, if you're born somewhere, can you "find" it? I mean, Cabot definitely found the place in the sense that he didn't know it was there before. Damn, names are complicated.
  • Land. Well it's definitely land, at least. Although it's kind of watery, all those lakes and raggedly coastlines and stuff mean it's not really "land" in the sense of a continental landmass, it's ah jeez, there I go again.
  • and Labrador. Named after a cute dog that Cabot saw when he got there. Phew! At least we can all agree on that one.
  • Newfy Scotia. There are so many Newfies moving to the mainland that the Province of Nova Scotia has just changed its name officially to Newfy Scotia.
  • Fort Mac. Not to be confused with The Impregnable Fortress of Kraft Dinner. Fort Mac is referred to as the "Newfie Graveyard" where most Newfoundlanders go when there's no work around (because that's what every lazy idiot says when they don't bother looking for a job and the women can't get hired at the local strip club) and usually become heroin or crack addicts.

History[edit]

The most famous leader of Newfoundland was Joey Smallwood (aka The Great One). Joey Smallwood was a pretentious prick who referred to all leprechauns as "the raggedy-arsed battalion". Joey joined Newfoundland to Canada in 1949 as an April Fools' joke. However, when realizing that the Dominion of Newfoundland was actually joining Canada, a guy called Highlander challenged Joey Smallwood to a duel on Confederation Hill. After Highlander was kicked in the crotch multiple times and anally molested by Smallwood, he was immortalized in the form of stone and Smallwood continued on to join Canada. April 1st is now celebrated as Irony Day in Newfoundland in acknowlegement of the brotherhood the island shares with Highlander-they were both robbed of their manliness and were totally, utterly screwed over that day. The newfoundland national anthem is named after one of their favorite foods cheese. The anthem is known as "Ding Cheesie Cheese". it is sung at dil tickles, hang over week,( may 2-4), and Buckmaster circle day. This anthem basically represents what all newfies care about, besides booze.

Culture[edit]

Newfoundlanders like drooping, fishing, and hockey . That pretty much sums it up

Twenty Fourth of May[edit]

File:Uncle bobbys beer bottle.jpg

Newfoundland's 2006 gross income.

A festival each year commencing on May 24(May TWO-four) to celebrate the melting of their mounds of snow and as a chance to go camping. Many have tried to discourage this event, citing the severe case of cabin fever, excessive consumption of fire water (alcohol) and large gatherings as contributing causes for many deaths annually. But these complaints are often discredited with the assumption that those who die were probably too weak to survive the seasonal migration anyway.

Prior to the events of May 24, a lot of preparation takes place. Large quantities of alcohol are purchased, entire camp sites are booked and houses are prepared for the large numbers of drunkards which will soon fill them. Much of Newfoundlands economy relies on the funds which are invested into May 24 events. An estimated 23 Million is spent each year, even when 50% of the supplies are stolen.

The May 24 celebration begins on top of Signal Hill where a virgin is sacrificed by wind (its quite windy on signal hill). This is followed by thousands of Newfoundlanders rushing to their homes, where they begin to attack their livers with alcohol. The evening consists of house parties or more specifically, kitchen parties. Kitchen parties often involve a dangerous amount of people piled into a single kitchen where they continue to drink, sing traditional May 24 anthems such as "The Pits", consume vast quantities of Jam Jams, collapse that side of the house and have a good time. After 24 hours of kitchen parties, the Newfoundlanders then proceed to their campsites where the party continues. The camping party can take place for anywhere from 3 to 8 days or whenever they run out of beer. Once all "da brews is gan'" and the May 2-4 event is all over, much still goes on. The days after are referred to as "Hangover week" and is now celebrated as another national holiday. This was decided by Joey Smallwood early in the 1900's due to the fact that everyone was far too incapacitated to return to work. The city is left in pandemonium with quad crashes, hospital visits, and numerous boating accidents. This is hows Lukey sank his boat, way back on the 2-4 of 1976.

  • People in England have reported that during the May 24 Holiday, if you listen really closely, you can actually here the ranting taking place more than 400 miles away.
  • Typically the stores sell out of "Uncle Bobby's Lard' Tunderin' Private Stock," the only beer available in NL. Due the fact that all the brews are gone, the city becomes full of angry newfies stumbling around in protest yelling, "Whoop Whoo whoop whoop ooop whoop whap." This roughly translates to, "Whoo Byz's all da brews is gan'." Except for the secret underground beer made from horses: Black Horse.
  • The centuries-old love story of John Cabot and Toni Marie Wiseman is re-enacted in pageant form each May 24th in Trinity, Trinity Bay, by Rising Pride Theatre, Newfoundland's first openly gay theatre company (which largely focuses on the work of Oscar Wilde). Wilde's first visit to Newfoundland was in 1882. On his way back to England from San Francisco he stayed with D.W. Prowse and family while waiting for the Sin Jawn's row boat to be repaired by Brenda Platypii. Wilde and Prowse had met while they were in Spain in the 1850s studying law and young boys. The two shared a love for hard tack and molasses that was surpassed only by their love for one another. Each year the torrid love affair between the two men is re-enacted by young baygays on stage in Trinity as a prelude to the now canonical theatrical rendering of Cabot and Wiseman's love story written by Mary Walsh entitled, "Giovanni and Toni-Marie.".

However some say that the 24 of may is a time of song and spring cleaning. Also it is a time for relatives to come home from "away".(Newfoundland has been experiencing a loss of population due to various reasons,one of them being the amount of ignorant people in Newfoundland).

Hibernia[edit]

The source of the Dominion of Newfoundland's vast offshore oil wealth, which ensures that Newfoundland remains a have province while Ontario becomes a have-not. Best known for having successfully repulsed a American invasion during Operation Iraqi Liberation when the horses deployed by the Bush crusades all unexpectedly drowned.
