« Go Back

In a posh shop in Harrogate a month or two back
I was standing around bored whilst my better half was looking at clothes when a mum with her baby in a pram came in. The very nice old lady who was running the shop started chatting to her and asked her the baby's name, having been told it was Jack she said to him, "Jack's a lovely name I can't think of any nasty Jacks"

I think to myself, "Yeah, except the Ripper" and have a wry smile. Then I realise that I didn't so much think it as say it loudly enough for everyone in the shop except my fiancee to hear, a truely deafening silence follows. Ten pairs of eyes all staring daggers at me when I try to make the situation better by saying, "Well they weren't sure that was his real name." My better half comes over takes one quick look at the situation, looks at me with a classic "what have you done?" look and forcilbly drags me from the store.

This crossed my mind too
Also: "Tweed". Is that the name of the cunt who married Ms Goody?

Is the Northern equivalent of Bath.

What perplexes me is the fact that most of the people from there don't even sound like they're from God's Country; it's as if a town was transplanted.

To be fair
I kind of new that, but wasn't going to let something stupid like a fact get in the way of me having a jab at Yorkshire.
