Actually in regards to the "aboot"
It is not just the nefies u know.
I speak with people from the US everyday and they can pick it up from me all of the time it is a sure hit that I am Canadian. I am definately not from Newfoundland.
Yes I get asked silly questions all of the time.
But it is just like some Canadians assuming that no where in the US gets snow, or they all say hu instead of eh.
Or they are all rude.
That is a funny post for sure. Got a good chuckle.
