    Well the next time you are at a bar blogging and paying for your next table dance remember that “Newf” is considered pejorative.

    The end.

    Let me put it to you this way: Whenever I visit a bar, it isn’t to drink or conduct linguistics field research.

    “Patrons at a bar are not writing heds for a blog.”

    … no… no they are not. This argument has obviously fizzled with your last post (“pas touché”) so the last thing I will say is that any blogger that uses “Newf” and “Varietyesque” in the same dialog should maybe go visit a bar and get a taste of the real world.

    While you’re at it you might want to update the wikipedia link…
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newfie … especially the first line.

    Here’s an experiment you might want to try. If find yourself in St. John’s you should go to the George Town Pub on a Sunday night. Relax at the bar with your MacBook Pro and say “Hey Newf, get me a beer!”… see if the patrons find it “Varietyesque”…. best of luck pal.

    *facepalm* Nice of you to use the “Newf” word… I think your blog spell checker plugin needs to be updated.

      The term was carefully chosen (it’s also Varietyesque) and, unlike a similar word with one extra syllable, is not pejorative. (Compare Pak with a word similar to it that also has one extra syllable.)

    While "derivative of a 30 year old American network show" sounds like CBC, contemporary adult cable does not. I wonder which executive is suddenly so bold.
