Politically correct Newfies offended by John Crosbie's suicide bomber joke

According to The National Post, former Mulroney Cabinet Minister John Crosbie cracked a joke that has angered Newfoundland's Premier and a local Pakistani group's leader

          Crosbie was at the cabinet swearing-in ceremony last Friday when he quipped:
This fellow said, ‘I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, social security, retirement funds, etc., I called a suicide hotline and got a call centre in Pakistan. When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck.’
I thought it was pretty funny. Is Mary Walsh the beginning of a trend of humourless Newfoundlanders?

As El Rushbo says, humor is founded in truth.
That is one funny observation.
