A newfie was terribly overweight, so his doctor put him on a newly discovered diet.

"I want you to eat regular meals for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 more weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost at least 5 pounds."

When the newfie returned, he shocked his doctor by having lost nearly 60 pounds. "Why, that's amazing !", the doctor said. "Did you follow my instructions?"

The newfie nodded , "I'll tell ya though, by jeasuz, I thought I was going to drop dead dat 3rd day."

"From hunger, you mean ?"

"No , from the friggin' skippin'."
