I have a deep and abiding love for Newfoundland and Labrador, despite the fact I have seen very little of it. I love this poster for so many reasons, let me count the ways:
- Newfoundland and Labrador is fun. Crazy fun. Some of the nicest people on Earth, too.
- I’m pretty sure this poster is from a charming series of Mad Men-style posters promoting Newfoundland and Labrador shortly after it joined Confederation.
- This is actually how you pronounce “Newfoundland.” On behalf of my Newfoundlander and Labradorian brothers and sisters, it drives me bonkers when other Canadians pronounce it “New-fownd-land.”
