    I knew a bloke from Barnsley once. Could barely understand a word he said. "Not while Thursday" "Ek as like"

    @nutball73 if a Yorkshiremans asks you "Othagonnashiftthissenowot?" It means it's time to go to the pub...

    "Beer o'clock" is the universal phrase, I believe...

    Pint o'clock locally, but you're close enough to let you get the first round in. :D

    There have obviously been a good number impromptu jam sessions if so many of you guys, and girls Mansonienne, are all related to Bob.:oops:

    That’s a bog standard question and I’m surprised you have even asked it. In fact I’m totally gobsmaked by the fact that you don’t use it in your own gaff.

    If ever you require translation, Thrupenybit and UKoldgit will be on it like a car bonnet. But if UKoldgit starts overegging the pudding, give Thrupennybit a swift tinkle on the blower. He’s a reasonable gezzer , full of poppycock, and a bit of a Wally but will usually put you right, just as long as you can handle him taking the mickie. All’s well and tickety-boo?

    You're as divvy as a box of frogs. There are only a handful of people here (Yorkshiremen) that would understand a word I say. :p
