Subject: When God Created Yorkshire

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.

I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth.

"For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.

Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries.

"This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Yorkshire , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Yorkshire are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things"

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "Right next to Yorkshire is Lancashire .. Wait till you see the idiots I put there!"

Ghastly place Yorkshire - William the Conqueror had the right idea when he torched the place.

except knowing how fallible man was and always knowing that man needed a target to achieve, that he never could, he created Westmoreland and Cumberland.

The case rests M'Lord

Yorkshire is famous for its puddings I'm told:

I went to school in Hull. A grand city with a proud past, fantastic city centre architecture built initially on the profits from whaling and later from deep sea fishing. Certainly it played its part in the slave trade, but no more than did Bristol and a great deal less than Liverpool. But its MP William Wilberforce was a major force in the abolition of slavery.
It had the c**p bombed out of it during WW2, but rebuilt. I liked the city, and still do.

I prefer the shot drop tower and the biggest pulse and cocktails I've ever driven past!
