Thread: Uk Confused

  1. #1
    You guys are always confusing me with all the little regional terms you have for one another.

    Maybe you could use this map and your photoshop skills to outline where the "geordies", "mackerals" and "norven monkeys".

    You could put an "x" on the map which marks where you are?

    Ideally, I would like to see a "pinned topic" globe in which people could mark where they live.

    For the moment I would like to see where you guys are from.

    And tell me a little something about the UK. Like from what cities do you leave to get to Ireland. Is it a bridge, tunnel or ferry?
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    Geordies are from Newcastle and mackems are from Sunderland, both cities in the north-east. There is an intense football (soccer) rivalry between these two cities. (Even though we all now Newcastle pwn Sunderland.)

    I live in the south-west in Plymouth which is where the pilgrim fathers left from.

    Edit: People from Plymouth are called Janners (or by the more snobbish of us Janner fuck-wits), but I'm not a Janner.

    Geordies come from "Newcastle upon Tyne", on the North East Coast of Engand, about 70-80 miles from the Scottish Border, and is shown on your Map.

    "Mackerals" (Actually Mackems) come from Sunderland, which is the closest city to Newcastle upon Tyne (about 12 miles away)... and is also shown on your Map.


    You can get a cheap flight to Dublin from Newcastle.. I think its about 19 ($35? )

    The word Jocks has, I think, different connotations in the USA.

    Suffice it to say that Jocks in the UK relates to we colourful and friendly Scottish people. By large when I lived in Bath for a few years I prefered Jock to Haggis (or Scottish bastard come to think of it )
