I live in SCUNTHORPE, Mr McGherkin, what was your meaning.
only one I know is who put the T in Scunthorpe.
           Regards Howard.
      PM me if its to rude to put in open forum

On the PhpBB forum software that is used by quite a few other forums, the swear filter looks for swearwords even if they are part of a longer word - so you might unexpectedly find your hometown filtered if you typed it in a post!

And TeddyT, fair play to your son, he's a good example!

Yarpie, From Afrikaans japie, or plaasjapie meaning farm-boy. 'Japie' or 'plaasjapie' is a term referring to a person that grew up on a farm and is not familiar with city life, naive, often unsophisticated. Not a derogatory term, but not too polite either.


Well that is what the dictionary says anyway.....

Sums me up to a tee then Nick. {-)

Spending the first 16 years of my life in West Wales before joining HMS Fisgard
I became Taff. Other lads were Jock, Geordie, Scouse,Paddy,even one lad from Guernsey Frenchie.
West country lads were Janners Yorkies were, say no more %)


None of us complained. It was the norm.


I don't think I should list the names given to Wily Oriental Gentelmen and others of that ilk
including Yanks Canucks Aussies and the rest.


If someone calls me Taff tomorrow I 'll be contacting  Call me names Lawers 4U
