As much as I appreciate Groucho's sentiment, I have to tell you that "My 
old son" is a very unlikely Newfie-ism.  Try "me ol' trout" or just "my 
son".  Add any one of the below to any sentence for more authentic 
Newfoundland charm!

Yes 'by!  (denotes agreement, or sarcasm)
Whadda'y'at?  ("What's up?" or "What are you doing?")   
'Ow's she goin' buddy?  ("How are things?")
'Ow's ya gettin' on?  ("How are you?")
