Newfoundland by AndyStarfish Newfoundland by AndyStarfish
Well this is my personification of Newfoundland and Labrador.

His name is johnathan McCrae Nickerson.

I drew him rather thin because he has had his fair share of up and downs.

He is rather the happy go lucky person yet he is hard working and diligent. He is in the fishery business and gets along with his brothers and sisters that make up the maritimes. He gets along with the other provinces but when it comes to the west he is rather still distant.

He makes fun of his sister British Columbia's accent and laughs when she yells at Ontario.

He is very go lucky, likes his drinks, and listens to Stompin Tom when he's really smashed. He has several interesting named places such as the town of Dildo and many others. He does has an accent that is rather unique that it is only known as the Newfie language xD

his nickname for him and his people are Newfies or the land of Newfies.

His land is also very beautiful especially when it comes to weather. his weather conditions are alot better compared to rainy British columbia, and his sunsets and sunrises are trully beautiful that there breathe taking. He rather quite enjoys being in his boat in the mornings, drinking his coffee watching the beautiful colours dance upon the water and sky.

he also has a golden labradour retriever named Nuggets.

so this is my personification of Newfoundland :) i just love him so much -^U^-

please enjoy.

i have all rights to my personifications.

Hahaha that's amazing!!! Ya my friend Brian said he looked like his cousin and it makes my day to hear things like that. Funny thing is I went to Europe and everyone asked me why I didn't say stereotypical things and I had to tell everyone that I was from the mainland and that I wasn't from newfoundland xD your guy's accent is legendary xD

What is it? Is it his charcter design, or his charcter description? If it's the description, just to let you know it's based on history and based on stereotypes. So it's not 100%

Oh I know the description isn't 100% I can tell oh yeah by the way they are called Newfies and never wish to listen to Newfie tunes just don't *shudders* oh and if I was coming off as I didn't like the design I so don't worry sorry if I came out rude

Eh well I just find it SO hard to listen to and after you are forced to listen to it for every summer you kinda start to hate it and sometimes they don't make sense why because one song was like with my pink boat and I was every confused and again I'm ranting sorry

Dude you never need logic when it comes to newfoundland like seriously, the ketchup song. Or the hockey song. And it's the Newfie language and all that too, they have a town called dildo, I really don't think it matters xD

I am from Newfoundland and I must say I love him but not only his looks but his stats (but I do like how you didn't do England eyebrows on him) and all the stuff I know and see in NL seems to fit him very well and if I saw this person on the new season of hetaila I would be quite pleased. So all in all I don't like the picture or him...... I LOVE THEM BOTH!!!!!!

Well I'm glad I did a good job. And why thank you. Ya I didn't want to give him iggy brows, like sure the provinces have ties yo Europe and what not but still, their canada babies xD well now they are :)

:icongerman-sheperd-lover:
Yeah now they are but just to let you know (i don't know if you know this) that Newfoundland was once a country and that the majority of people in Newfoundland were once against joining Canada because they thought Canada as more as a "Terrible Wolf" than the "Friendly Beaver" that Canada had as its national animal (there was even a slogan in one of my history books that was a headline title in a old Newfoundland news paper and the slogan was something like this "Oh Come at Your Own Risk Great Canadian Wolf" and under it was a description of how Newfoundland didn't really like Canada because of it's fears (Newfoundland, i find, was never really able to stay out of debt back then because the main money maker for Newfoundland was the fishery, and although the salt cod and seal fishery was very big in the beginning the value for the products quickly dropped and lead Newfoundland to find itself in the poorhouse)). I mean now Newfoundland is a province of Canada, but back then pretty much if you even thought about Newfoundland joining Canada you were thought to be crazy or someone who had little faith in their country. So yeah i just wanted to let you know that you may look at Newfoundland now and think 'Yeah its just a province like any other province like BC or P.E.I' and it may be that way now, but it wasn't always like that, at some point in history Newfoundlander's despised the very thought of joining Canada, and now there are still people who think that we should of never joined Canada (there usually older people that you think would have trouble with computers and the amount of people who think that is very little)

yes i knew all of that xD and i see it as once a independant colony of britatin and i know about the 52% majority of the vote on joining canada.

Oh ! Well then I am sorry for the story long comment. Its just that I get really mad when people talk to me and say something like ' oh newfoundland could never be a country' or ' Don't be so stupid! Newfoundland was always a part of Canada' and I really hate it when people don't stop and look up facts in books or on the web. Also yeah the voting for joining Canada was very close and it still surprises me today to know that it was almost half of newfoundland who voted against joining Canada.
