Let me tell you a couple of stories.
Many moon ago there was a bunch of guys sitting along the shores of the St Lawrence, pondering what to name their country. They carved some letters out of some maple and put all those letters into one of those big hats they used to wear back then. Then one of them (name of Doug McKenzie) started pulling them letters out of that hat at random and announcing them.
C-eh! N-eh! D-eh!
And that's how Canada got its name.
Now let me tell you one about two guys from Newfoundland.
Many moon ago (though not so many as in the previous story) these two guys from Newfoundland decided to drive all the way to California. They liked it fine and headed back after a few weeks. As they were driving through Nebraska, they saw a wheat field that was moving with the wind, much like the ocean, and it got them feeling all homesick and so forth. So, they unhooked their little boat trailer, and took their boat into the wheat field and started rowing with their paddles for all their might.
Just then another Newfie happened to be driving by. He saw our heroes rowing with wild abandon and yelled: "Look at you two dumbasses rowing out there! No wonder the whole country thinks we're dumber than a bag of rocks! Why, if I could swim, I'd go out there and kick your asses!"
Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.
