Today's Newfoundlandisms,

Two new Newfoundland sayings for you C.F.A.s or those who have been off Island awhile:

G'wan bye, what odds! (Why worry? It doesn't matter)

Stunned as a box of hair. (Phrase used to describe the intellectually challenged)

I always found the phrase "goin on a tare" to be funny.

There was a song on the home brew radio program song that went something like "If yer goin down there ye better beware because the b'ys are goin on the beer and they're goin on a tare"...haahaha
