Face Rings a Bell

Ever heard of Aspatria? My first thought was that yet another east european state had fractured into even tinier component parts, but no, it’s the name of a place in in Cumbria and home to Tommy Mattinson, the undisputed world gurning champion. Seems they’re having trouble finding baffins though.

My interest in foreign parts has been sparked having a much, much wider geographic responsibility in my work and I have to keep my finger on the Cumbrian pulse.

The title is a reference to that awful Quasimodo joke. I included the best one last October.

    Polly ain’t getting many crackers so I thought I’d give her one!
    Tee hee! With a face like a parrot maybe you should be gurning yourself.
