There was a report in the Derby Telegraph about a couple who asked for 'corn on the cob' in a takeaway and were served a bread roll with sweetcorn filling!

Been in Doncaster for the last 4o years before moving back, still puts me in Nottingham. You can take the girl out of Nottingham but not Nottingham out of the girl!

Amazingly good.

Had to think about some of the terms I used as a child and/or when I lived in the UK but it placed me firmly in Nottingham.
