I remember when Hull was in North Humberside!

Did they move the bloody place to Yorkshire?

To be fair, we all feel that way about Hull, Humberside and Yorkshire in general.

Why do they feel the need to preface what they say with "I'm a straight talking Yorkshireman"?

And then when you give it to them straight they can't f**king take it!

Maybe they are intimidated by you? They see you coming at them, all hard, wanting to give it to them - must be a frightening sight.
