Is Mecannylad just another Townie on a collision course with the countryside? Can he hack it in the bracing air of the fabulous Peak District? Will he survive amongst the farming set and their prize winning friesians? ....... This staunch Geordie carries fond memories from the gritty back streets of 1960`s Tyneside when a Big Mac was nothing more than a raincoat, a joint was only the Sunday roast and going all the way was simply staying on the bus until the terminus.
Beware of South Bank Geordies.
Mecannylass was born and raised in Jarrow and comes from a long line of guilt mongers. Not a lot of people know that Geordies born on the south banks of the Tyne have been known to be purveyors of fine guilt for thousands of years. It’s one of their primary social techniques … and it’s a skill that certainly passes through the genes.
This is basically how it works: Rather than making friends and family feel good about doing the right thing; they get their pleasure from making others feel crappy about not doing it.
Look out for south-bank Geordies; they are flawed.
Regular readers will have of course recognised Mecannylad as a north-banker!!
