Big Grin newfoundland was on Conan o'brian last night

did anyone see Natasha Henstridge on Conan last night!!!

I laughed so much.

she 'screeched' conan in...that's a newfoundland custom, and she is from newfoundland. and she even mentioned me beautiful province several times. I was in my glee

what is getting screeched in?
-first you take a shot of Newfie Screech (a hard hard rum)
-then you repeat these words; "Indeed I is, me old cock, and long may your big jib draw!"
(translation: of course I am, my friend, and long may you have good fortune)
-lastly, you have to kiss the codfish.

this is done to make people honorary newfoundlanders (or to celebrate weddings and the like)

I think conan was getting a little drunk

pffft.

i dunno how old this is and if it's still true or not but i found it posted on another website.

The answer is that it cannot be done! Unfortunately, the exporter does not have a license to send Screech Rum into the US. I too have tried, contacted alcohol distributers and been rebugged. The only thing you could do would be to have someone in NF illegally mail you the rum (or drive it to you). Good luck.
