    I spend a lot of time fooling around with this young lady, but, as in any relationship there are limits and I won’t lay down in a pool of water with her even though she is gorgeous. Her name is Willow.

    What is a 'Lincolnshire Yellowbelly' ?

    by sourbugger Written Nov 20, 2003

    People who are born and bred in Lincolnshire are nicknamed 'yellowbellies'.

    Exactly where this term came from is a source of endless amusement.

    One of the best summaries can be found at the following website :


    A threesome (fnarr fnarr !)

    Where the F**k is that ?

    by sourbugger Written Nov 19, 2003

    Place names are a wonderful thing - it is amazing how many hits places like 'F**king' in Austria get.

    With a little more a subtle approach, some of the place names in England (and Lincolnshire in particular) can be far funnier than the direct approach of those Austrians who wouln't recognise subtle if it hit them over the head with a brick.

    One of my favourites is 'Folkingham' in Lincolnshire, which is pronounced by many locals as 'F**k ing 'em'

    Here are a few more interesting ones :

    Cowbit (pronounced Cub - it ), Turves, Pode Hole, Mavis Enderby, Bicker & Wrangle

    What you may be called

    It is very common to be referred to as a 'Duck' in the East Midlands and Lincolnshire.

    If someone is in their 50's or over it sounds quite quaint, but when a youngster says "Thanks Duck" it does sound a little odd.

    Listen out for it.

    P.S If you really are a duck, I'm not sure what the ettiquette is.
