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.

Well my birth certificate says West Riding, guess I was born before 1974
​Also had me milk nicked at school by that bloody woman from Grantham.

Someone I know recently defined a Scotsman as a Yorkshire man without the meanness. I felt genuinely quite offended.

Sniff.

But then I remembered how I was a Yorkshireman. I'll get him back no matter how long it takes. Even if it makes me bitter and twisted.

More bitter and twisted.

Well, I'm Scottish and was recently asked to attend a local black tie event to present some awards and to give a few words on International commodity trade.

When the official invite arrived I noted that the intro to the evenings event was to be given by one Mr Robert S******** - S***** which, I thought, that's not a common name and one such named gentleman owes me £25 from 42 years ago when he never paid the full price for a car I sold him when we were at college (when £25 bought 400 woodbines and a semi-detached house. And there was a war on :old:).

Anyway, after his intro words about integrity, honesty and reputation in business the evening proceeded and I duly did my bit and concluded about the previous comments on integrity and honouring a debt etc - then turned to this tw*t in front of 600 people and reminded him that he still owed me that money.

Well worth the wait (and £25).

Bide your time Chris J. & don't let anyone tell you revenge is pointless.

Yorkshire is the only county where tightness is applauded.

But remember there's two types of people in this world.

Them from Yorkshire,

and them that wished they were.
