I think it probley has something to do with the fact that it;s a tradition to listen to newfoundland music (other wise known as jiggs) at lunch time sundays, so maybe that has something to do with it"

Way off. The initial poster was correct in citing the comic strip (the name of which escapes me) involving the nouveau riche Jiggs enjoying his low-brow fair, much to the chagrin of the other members of the upper eschelons of society. Technically, this would make it Jiggs's Dinner, according to Fowler's Modern English Usage, but it's all good.
