When you say wind, do you mean wind as in the long and winding road, or wind as in he was winded with the punch?

Grimsby magistrates pretended they had not heard a thing, and in a seemingly unrelated incident a few minutes later, all the lights went out for a few seconds before flickering back on again.
The best bit of no-news for a long time.

Imagine the headline

"Bloke farts, no-one cares"

This story trumps all . Firewood show in Norway received complaints because half the viewers thought bark should face up, and the other half thought bark should face down.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/20/wo...anted=all&_r=0

He explained, “One thing that really divides Norway is bark.”

One thing that does not divide Norway, apparently, is its love of discussing Norwegian wood. Nearly a million people, or 20 percent of the population, tuned in at some point to the program, which was shown on the state broadcaster, NRK.

I'm an honoury Grimbarian.

Married a lass from Great Grimsby.

Apart from the overbearing smell of breadcrumbs as you enter the place on the A180 by the Young's factory it's not as bad as people make out.

Dirt cheap property too!

Fully agree, but that story is something that WOULD make news there, would make a pleasant change from the problems of immigrants, welfare dodgers, binge drinkers etc.

I am from the Midlands, but without the nasty accent. This means I am not a southern stuck up gaylord nor a wife beating northern miner. We are just perfect.
