Uncommon Newfoundlander sense

Babble on.

Bono is at a U2 concert in Halifax, Nova Scotia, when he asks the audience for some quiet. Then, in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands. He says into the microphone, in a deep solemn voice...

"Just for a moment, think outside yourself...Outside this arena. Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."

A loud Newfy voice from near the front punctures the moment...

"Well, Lard tunderin jasus, ya stupid arse, stop yer fockin' clappin', then!"


Babble off.
