  6. Married to a Yorkshire lass - does that count? :roll:
  7. I lived in yorkshire for 18 months I think (I was only a lad at the time) and I know a few yorkies (the people not the dogs) if thats any help
  8. I will repeat againg to you Yorkie Bars, Jocks, Brummies, Scouse Gits and all others:

    Civilization starts at Brighton, West Sussex, Then goes north until you reach the River Thames where it stops. North of that you have a "No Mans Land" between the River Thames and Oxford Street, London W1. Any where to the north of that is full of strange accented, clog and skirt wearing weirdos who keep ferrets and pigeons and eat strange items such as Black Pudding, pease pudding, mushy peas, haggis, deep fried batter mars bars etc. And the worst crime drink frothy crap beer out of kegs not real ale out of barrels.

    A Southern Gentleman Nutty
  9. Nutty as Im of Jockenese origin I resemble that and I drink Gods own drink aka Irn Bru
  10. Southern yes but you always claimed to be and OD not a gentleman.

    As to the beer, I can remeber some pretty awful conction in your delightful south, Brickwoods, and Plymouth, the very thought of them almost makes me feel sick.

    Yes civilisation stops at Watford, but only when one is travelling south.

    Hows the beer in Murcia?

  11. Only thing good thing coming from down South or SARF as you lot say is the motorway leading North!!

    Real beer up North not poncy diluted rainwater shite!! And if the SARFEN lot ever drank a real pint of Guinness forget it a half would see those fairies off.
  12. Nutty , theres nowt wrong with Blackpudding ,Peaspudding ,Stottycake , me mouths watering just thinking of it , I hail from Newcastle so have to pass through Yorkshire to get there , just gets better and better the further North you go , but only as far as Geordieland of course , lovely lasses , :roll: :oops:
  13. Ta Northerns an Jocks are bit tender today

    Luv and Hugs


    Gentleman OD
  14. You can always tell a Yorkshireman......... But you can't tell him MUCH!

    [align=center]Because they don't fecking listen![/align]
  15. Not so much tender as pointing out the realities of life.

  16. I think it is long overdue for Yorkshire to have its' own parliament - couldn't do any worse than the bunch of t**ts in London, Scotland, Wales and N Ireland and plenty of proper home grown talent to fill the seats - be a bit like the Yorkshire cricket team of old (before they let ANYONE play whether they were a Yorkshireman or not).

    Come on you Tykes!
  17. There's a lot of those on Rum Ration :)
  18. Yes but which are the plants and which the animals.

  19. Any of those working below the waterline. :roll:
  20. Peter

    But there is no Life North of Oxford Street, London W1 only existance
