    God's Own County... Discuss 10pts

    God was bored and went missing for six days. The Archangel Gabriel found him resting on the seventh day.
    "What have You been up to?" he said.
    "I've created the planet Earth and it will be a place of great balance."
    "Balance?" said Gabriel.
    God explained.
    North America would be wealthy and South America would be poor.
    "Over there I've placed a continent of white people, and over there a continent of black people."
    God talked of different countries.
    "That one will be hot and that one will be covered with ice."
    Gabriel was impressed and pointed to an area in England and said:
    "What's that?"
    "Ah," said God.
    "That is Yorkshire, the most glorious place on Earth. There will be beautiful lakes, streams, rivers and hills, great music, architecture, and sporting giants. The people from Yorkshire will be modest, intelligent and witty. They will be sociable, hard working and high achievers. They will be known throughout the world as diplomats and peace-makers."
    Gabriel gasped in admiration, thought for a moment, and said: "But what about balance, God? You said there will be balance."
    "Ah," said God, nodding sagely, "let me tell you about Lancashire..."

    Funny how this one reappears periodically with the counties reversing each time. Also seen it Scotland v England.

    Yorkshiremen - created by God from 50% Scot and 50% Jew but with generosity and sense of humour removed.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.
