One time Newfoundland and Quebec went to war. A Newfie, being patriotic, signed up to fight and went into basic training. Now, Newfoundland was a poor province and the army didn’t have enough guns so the guys was told to just pretend to have gun and shout “bang, bang”.
Eventually he finished training and his unit was deployed. He still didn’t have a gun so when they went up against the Quebeckers he did the only thing he knew, he pretended he had a gun and went “Bang, bang.” Amazingly, when he did this the Quebeckers he was aiming at would fall down. So he kept going “Bang, bang” and was very effective as a soldier. He was a good shot.
Then, he looked up and saw a big Quebecker coming down the hill towards him. So he aimed and went “Bang, bang”. The guy kept coming. “Bang, bang” – no effect. “Bang, bang” – no effect.
Eventually the Qiuebecker ran right over him and continued down the hill going “Tankity, tankity, tankity”.
