Newfoundland, Which I Am Rather Fond Of
In my country we have something called the Knowledge Network. It is non-profit television. Like PBS on welfare. I do not know where they get their money from. They would like it if I donated them some money but I never will. That is what the racetrack is for.
Tonight I watched the first episode about a tour Scottish comedian Billy Connolly took across my fat motherfucking country's north. It first aired a couple of years ago. I am always missing shit. The show began in Nova Scotia, which I do not give a fuck about, then continued on to Newfoundland, which I am rather fond of.
Billy Connolly used to be funny. I do not know what happened. Stopped doing dope I imagine. He still has great fucking hair.
I had been to all the places Billy Connolly visited in Newfoundland. Cape Spear, Gander, St. Anthony and everything in between. It was good to see them again. I could taste the rum, smell the hash and feel the spray of the whales blowing on the sea.
Some people think Canada wrecked Newfoundland. If that is true we made a fine wreckage of the place.
