St. John's Newfoundland

Independent Golf Tips for the professional at Leisure

October 2008

I was recently in Newfoundland, an area crippled by the withdrawal of Red Lobster Corporation who stopped buying their shellfish as a direct protest to the clubbing of baby seals.

In the USA, some animals are protected, and the only way to kill them is if you are being attacked and they are coming right for you:

Newfoundland is a foreign place in many ways, not to mention that their time is 90 minutes off from EST, a situation which presents a huge timezone problem for anyone who does computer globalization.

There is much to see in Newfoundland, most notably L'Anse Aux Meadows, the site of the first North American Viking settlement which was inhabited centuries before.

The Newfies are a nice bunch of folks, and like rednecks, they are the butts of many jokes which they call Newfie Jokes:

While clubbing baby seals looks cruel, the Newfies tell a different tale.  They say that the ravenous seal population destroys their fish crop and its absolutely necessary to thin the herd.  They say that the least painful ways to kill baby seals is to walk right up to them and whack em on the head:

With bullets, the babies risk suffering.
