‘Ey Up.


Yorkshire Rose

It's National Yorkshire Day. 

In, uh, Yorkshire.


‘Ee by gum. 

Nowt queer as folk. 

Etc. Etc. Etc.  (please insert your own clichéd-yet-unintelligible Yorkshire phrase here)


  1. Oh aye?!

    Ahm none too chuffed with yesterday's sewing.
    Ahm daft as a bush when it comes to alterations.

    OK, not exactly cliche perhaps, but if I go consult one of my Irvine Welsh books, I'll accomplish nowt mair th'night.

  2. You know the one about the cleaning lady who sees the Yorkshire-born student entering her dorm room in London first thing in the morning and asks: "Where's the bin?" To which the Yorkshire lass says, "Where've ah bin? It's none of tha bloody business!"

    Oh and it's "There's nowt so queer as folk." Tha just duznt speak the lingo, duz tha?

  3. Well, happy National Yorkshire Day to you :-)

  4. LOL to Hatty and no, thank god, I do NOT speak the lingo. To this day I have not one clue what my husband is on about. For all I know, he just thinks I'm the nice lady who lets him live here... who can tell? No one knows what the heck he's saying.

  5. Bugger off it's nowt as queer as fowk, and shi mart reckon she dunt know what ahm seyin but at's cuz shi jus dunt unnerstan mi.

    so to join the gang do I have to say the word verification? It's rulfatis. As a fati I think it's only right that I get to rule.

  6. See All, Hear All Say Nowt Eat All, Drink All,Pay Nowt, And if ever tha does owt for nowt Allus do it for Thisen.

    This is on a tea mug that I bought at a yardsale for my Yorkshire born and raised for many generations son-in-law. He said there's a longer version of this expression but I can't find it.


You know you want to say something....
