Newfoundland quarters - valuable - Collector items
Hang on to any of the new Newfoundland quarters.
If you have them, they may be worth much more than 25 cents. The Canadian Mint
announced today that it is recalling all of the Newfoundland quarters that are
part of its program featuring quarters from each province
"We are recalling
all the new Newfoundland quarters that were recently issued," Canadian Mint
Deputy Minister Jack Shackleford said Monday. "This action is being taken after
numerous reports that new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll
booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices."
quarters were issued in the order in which the various provinces joined
Confederation. and have been a tremendous success among coin collectors
worldwide. "The problem lies in the unique design of the Newfoundland quarter,
which was created by a team of Newfoundland natives," Shackleford said.
"Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together
keeps jamming the coin-operated devices.

CANADIAN JOKE #3
An Ontarian wanted to become a Newfie. He went to
the neurosurgeon and asked, "Is there anything you can do to me that would make
me into a Newfie?"
"Sure it's easy." replied the neurosurgeon. "All I have
to do is cut out 1/3 of your brain, and you'll be a Newfie."
He was very
pleased, and immediately underwent the operation. However, the neurosurgeon's
knife slipped, and instead of cutting 1/3 of the patient's brain, the surgeon
accidentally cut out 2/3 of the patient's brain. He was terribly remorseful,
and waited impatiently beside the patient's bed as the patient recovered from
the anesthetic. As soon as the patient was conscious, the neurosurgeon said to
him "I'm terribly sorry, but there was a ghastly accident. Instead of cutting
out 1/3 of your brain, I accidentally cut out 2/3 of your brain."
patient replied "Qu'est-ce que vous avez dit, monsieur?"

American, "I remember the crash, and then there was a beautiful light, and then
the Canadian and the Scot and I were standing at the gates of heaven. St.Peter
approached us and said that we were all too young to die, and said that for a

and gave him the $50, and the next thing I knew I was back here."

with a charming little smile,
"We better throw this one out too then,

please take your hand luggage because a seat awaits you in the first class.'

In a crowded New York City bus stop, a beautiful
young woman who was waiting for a bus was wearing a tight mini skirt. As the
bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was
too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the
bus. Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached
behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her
enough slack to raise her leg.
Again, she tried to make the step only to
discover she still couldn't. So, a little more embarrassed, she once again
reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little more, and for the second time
attempted the step, and, once again, much to her chagrin, she could not raise
With a little smile to the driver, she again reached behind to
unzip a little more and again was unable to make the step.

a large Texan who was standing behind her picked her up easily by the waist and
placed her gently on the step of the bus.
She went ballistic and turned to
the would-be good Samaritan and yelled, "How dare you touch my body! I don't
even know who you are!"
The Texan smiled and drawled, "Well, ma'am,
normally I would agree with you, but after you unzipped my fly three times, I
kinda figured we was friends.
