Just found this website. Am so proud to read that my old home town has a mention. If you're as lucky, your home town may be there too.

It wouldn't load up for me, but I doubt Liverpool has any Chavs to merit a mention anyway Rolling Eyes

Hemel's in there three times, with some of the most-read articles. What does this say about here?

Funnily enough, Flint's not in there. I even had to explain what an ASBO was to my coworkers the other day. I tell you, we have no culture over here. Razz

What on earth is a scallie?

I really have to talk the librarian who buys the dictionaries into buying one on English slang so I don't have to embarrass myself like this.

Scallywags, they're those cheeky entreneurs who wear ADIDAS/Nikes and steal your carwheels.

Someone really needs to publish a guide to all the exotic species of homo sapiens in Great Britain.

No mention of Brighton or Chepstow!!!

I'd have thought the Coldean and possibly Hollingbury would have attracted enough of a mention from somewhere.

Then again, it may be that with all the thieving nobody owns a computer for long enough to post it on there.

I'll have to start using ones that aren't in there.

I typed in Edinburgh and Glasgow came up, and there's no mention of Stirling, but that isn't much of a surprise, as its not too bad.
