Can't actually beat it. Every single attempt to poke fun at Yorkshiremen by southerners is simply met with smiles and laughter. Fact is, we aren't the best, but that dosen't stop us pretending we are :)

Telford, Shropshire, England, United Kingdom, Earth, Sol, Orion Arm, Gould Belt, Milky Way, Universe Theta 2-10 PO BOX 666 Telford is commonly referred to as the so-called "Birthplace of Industry", primarily due to its having engulfed the Victorian town of Ironbridge at an early stage in its growth, which is, originally enough, named after the Iron Bridge itself - the first of its kind. Which is impressive apparently. For this reason it was named after the famous British engineer Thomas Telford, who had absolutely nothing to do with the construction of the Iron Bridge. Disillusioned tourists who got lost on the way to London will frequently arrive here believing there to be something of note to see, when in actual fact there is nothing but a dingy, black, iron monstrosity that is slowly sinking into the bed of the Severn. Despite this claim to industrial fame, Telford did not actually exist as a town during the Industrial Revolution nor for most of the first half of the 20th Century. Rather it was created as part of the British government's 'New Towns' initiative of the 60s and 70s, and was originally intended as an overflow town for Birmingham and other burgeoning towns and cities in the West Midlands. This meant that Birmingham would send its most unwanted residents to live in Telford - and to be 'unwanted' in a city such as Birmingham takes an extra-special kind of despicable lifestyle. Because it engulfed several small towns and villages already extant in the area as it was built, much of what is now known as 'Telford' already existed previously, so aside from a snaking network of roads and far too many roundabouts, little of value has been added that wasn't already in place. Native populations, who resided in the area prior to the Great Chav Exodus of the 1980s, have found themselves embattled in a constant fight for survival ever since. In modern times, Telford is known as the "Birthplace of Chavs". Its numerous large, wide grass verges, artificial woodland and expanses of (gradually shrinking) fields offer the perfect environment for colonies of chavs to take shelter; the grass verges offer perfect locales to dump burned-out cars, and the small patches of foliage dotted around offer much more effective camouflage from the police so that they might indulge in underage drinking and illegal drug use without interruption. Popular activities in the town include supporting failing football clubs, binge drinking, driving after said binge drinking, and hanging around on street corners smoking marijuana. Telford Tigers, an ice hockey team which nobody has ever heard of or cared about, has its headquarters here, using the dilapidated civil ice rink as their training ground. It is also the only known place in the town to acquire ice slushies. During the 1980s the M54 motorway was constructed, along with the Telford Central railway station, giving unfortunate residents at least two possible escape routes. To date, almost 150,000 people live in the town, of which only 45% are officially human, 25% are officially humanoid, and the remainder are classified as 'unknown'. Nightlife in the town is non-existent, with most residents seeking to leave town at night to avoid being murdered, beaten up, or bored to death. Plans are presently in motion to significantly alter the centralised shopping centre to create a 'café' culture, with local politicians operating under the mistaken impression that any tables and chairs placed in outdoor locations will not be used as weapons or taken home as furniture. Meanwhile, the councillors of the neighbouring town of Shrewsbury, the smaller capital of the county of Shropshire, are working on ways to physically move the historic medieval town further away from Telford, as the rapidly growing sprawl threatens to engulf everything in its path like a cancerous tumour that cannot be destroyed or removed. Perhaps the most, and only, interesting thing of note is that when seen from above, as on Google maps, the town looks somewhat like an upside-down 'L' shape. While some areas of the north are considered to be barely habitable by well-armed, well-trained assault teams at the least, the southern areas of the town - particularly locales like Brookside, Woodside and Madeley - are classified as no-man's-land, to be avoided at all costs.

Speakin of Yorkshire, and Goody was there when this happened: (this is the exact conversation I had with some guys on ventrilo once):

North Yorkshire Guy: "So Goody what part of Yorkshire are you from?"

Goody10: "West."

North Yorkshire Guy: "Oh that's a good thing, at least you don't come from South."

Computernerd: "Why? What's wrong with South Yorkshire?"

North Yorkshire Guy: "The people down there are a bunch of tosses, and can't even understand a f***in thing they're saying."

Computernerd: "I'm sorry what was that? I couldn't understand it."

North Yorkshire Guy: "Yeah yeah very funny."
