A Newfie walked into a bank in Toronto and asked for the Loans Officer. He told the loans officer that he was going to Newfoundland on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000.: however, he was not a depositor of the bank. The Bank Officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Newfie handed over the keys to a new Ferrari.

The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The newfie produced the title and everything checked out.

The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Newfie for using a $250,000. Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000. loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Newfie returned, repaid the $5,000. and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire.

What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The Newfie replied: "Where else in Toronto can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?"

Ah, Newfies.....See!

Salt Beef is good for the brain.
