It's Yorkshire Day! Hurrah!

<ahem>

Does any other county have a day, and if so, do they shout about it so vigorously?

I've just celebrated Yorkshire Day down here in London. I just went outside into the sunshine and boiled my head...

It may well be Yorkshire Day, but the test is at Lancashire.

I am celebrating with a cup of Yorkshire tea and a good read through the latest Wisden. Later I shall don my flat cap and walk the whippet down to the shops. I'll tie the dog up outside Tesco and walk up and down the aisles pointing at items shouting 'ow much!!!!'

Most importantly though, I'll not be spending any bloody money.

I'm not sure which is worse - Lesley Garret's screeching or Brian Blessed's rapping

P.S. Isn't "Mary Jane" usually a reference to Marijuana ? Brings a whole new meaning to the song !

No need, us Lancastrians are innately superior so once the tykes have had their day we get on with the rest of the year to ourselves :-)

Us Yorkshire folk have six toes on each foot. How on earth can you say that you are superior?

Just got an email with a few Yorkshire related jokes:

Police have just released details of a new drug craze that is being carried out in Yorkshire nightclubs. Apparently, Yorkshire club goers have started injecting Ecstasy just above their front teeth.

Police say the dangerous practice is called "e by gum"
