Hoover Diddit

Let's just say this happened to a person close to my family. I will call him Fred.
When Fred made his first trip to Newfoundland of course we had to Screech-in this come from away.
Now, those that know me know I sometimes still adhere to our old Newfoundland language and at the best of times my grammar slips.
I explained the Screech-in ceremony to Fred as we prepared him to take part. I told him once he was officially Screeched-in, he would get a certificate signed by "whoever did it", meaning, performed the ceremony.
Fred said, "Who's Hoover Diddit, the premier of Newfoundland?"
