Yorkshireman

Yorkshire folk are  big enough to be able to laugh at ourselves. This is a sketch created by the  English comedian Harry Enfield. It was made as far back as 1992. Hell, that's almost thirty years ago. Enjoy:-

  1. Your readers might not realise that Yorkshire is a large county with a variety of temperaments, and that the video is most representative of people from Sheffield. Those from further north are a little more urbane as this different video illustrates: https://youtu.be/6VLYpKGVBUg

    1. Ha-ha! Yes I laughed at that video too... I would like to do similar videos about The Home Counties. Are you up for playing Jason Rees-Mogg?

    4. Actually Jacob, I thought that Gareth had a sophisticated air about him.

  2. Father O'Flynn in Bradford was sad because attendance at church had slumped while the mosque across the road was always packed out with male worshippers.
    So the worried priest thought he'd asked the imam for spiritual advice, and invited him in for a cup of tea.

    Father O'Flynn: We still get a few ladies in for Mass, but the men stay away.
    Imam: What happens if a man attends Mass every Sunday and dies in a state of grace?
    Father O'Flynn: Oh, he goes straight to Heaven.
    Imam: And who does he see in Heaven?
    Father O'Flynn: Oh, he sees Jesus, the Holy Ghost, and the Virgin Mary.
    Imam: That's the trouble. Only one virgin ...

  3. My brother said he was a democrat, equally contemptuous of all religions.
    Terrified of death, he passed away in his sleep at his flat in Hampstead.

    Why does Bradford have so many Pakistanis and Brighton so many gays?
    Brighton had first choice.

  6. I like the Yorkshire Airlines sketch. It was light years ahead of Ryanair. Harry Enfield is a comic genius.

    1. What happened to him? He seems to have drifted away.

  7. Well YP, I should imagine that the video (hilarious and politically incorrect though it is) is probably totally incomprehensible to the majority of your followers outside Sheffield!
    'eeh bah gum, lad, Google translate isn't any use either!

    1. I must say, I do wonder what North American visitors might make of it.
