IT'S YORKSHIRE DAY!

Post by Bald Eagle »

August the first is always Yorkshire Day. Any ne'er-do-wells who try to knock it or make disparaging remarks are only jealous because they weren't born here! :good: :D :lol: :P

So we can only be rude to Yorkshire on the other 364 days? I can live with that.

I suppose the rest of us can tolerate Yorkshire Day. Its not like people from the region can keep quiet about how wonderful it is for the rest of the year.

Yawn......................zzzzzzzzzz

What's the difference between a Yorkshireman and a coconut?

Happy Yorkshire day. My favouritest thing to come out of Yorkshire --- the A66 West. Not because Yorkshire is a bad place, but because home is only 3 hours from Scotch Corner and 80% of my journey is behind me.
