Yorkshire folk are funny: it's a fact. If you need proof, go and stand in a bus queue or sit in a café with a bunch of them, take a walk along the high street or in the countryside, or go to a football match or the barber's shop. Funny things will be said — guaranteed.
If you need any more proof, delve into Yorkshire Humour, a delightful collection compiled by Ian McMillan from seventy years of Dalesman magazine and illustrated by award-winning cartoonist Tony Husband.
In these pages you will discover how Yorkshire's little tykes are always ready with an insightful comment or impossible-to-answer question. Jokes and stories have always brightened the working day, and Yorkshire folk at rest and play can find humour on days out, in the pub and even the church and chapel, not to mention the eternal 'battle of the sexes' and Yorkshire's opinion of the rest of the world (and Lancashire). And then there is the Yorkshire dialect, which seems purpose-built to express all those humorous observations.
Yorkshire folk have always been renowned for their wry, warm and homely outlook on life. Here in this ebook is the very best of Yorkshire humour, funny stories and amusing anecdotes.
