"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

Great, another "comedian".

1. "NL" does not stand for Newfoundland.

2. Babiche ("babbish") is not a Newfoundland word; it is a Labrador one. A Newfoundland and Labrador one, even. But not a Newfoundland one. It is a loanword from Innu-eimun, via the French (hence the giveaway -che spelling).

3. Babiche is not "like, snowshoes". It is what the webbing of snowshoes was traditional made with.

4. Call me old-fashioned, but aren't comedians supposed to be, like, funny?
