Our tour of Newfoundland continued with a visit of the lovely town Dildo. This is a beautiful little community on Trinity Bay, right at the Atlantic.
When we drove into Dildo I hoped for crazy Dildo merchandise and all. Soon we got the feeling, that the Dildonians want to downplay the name of their town. I still don’t now why, I think they should totally work it: Dildo cutlery, Dildo cocktails, Dildo shoes, Dildo hats. So many possibilties!
However, here is the Dildonian explanation of how Dildo got its name:
“D’Isle Duo” can be translated into Spanish, Portuguese and French, all roughly meaning ‘two islands’. With respect to our community, we believe these two islands to be Spread Eagle and Dildo Island, both visible from our community. Over time, with the dialects of the settlers, the flow has been lost and it evolved into Dildo.
Me loves them islands names, bys.
Captain Dildo blew my dress
Up close and personal with Captain Dildo
With them local Dildonian girls
Just chillin’ down by the water
A Dildo can save your life
All the girls to the harbour, the big truck is in town
This cutie wanted to take me on a ride in his truck
