It was and I remember it first time around vaguely but it came to my attention via a well-meaning but gullible friend again this morning.  It's funny so I shared it.

Turns out gin-pickled gherkins are already a real thing - although somewhat disappointingly, they only contain 2% gin...

But are yours 44% ABV? This, I admit, is the main appeal of the Hendricks version.

Doric Bilingual Traffic Signs for North East Scotland

Someone put a lot of work into that one :thumbsup:  Although I'm disappointed to learn that Furryboottoon is not included on the signs.  I should complain if I were you.

Ah but it's for the North east, Furryboottoon would stop being signposted around Stracathro services

F/Wh/W is the transition in Scots, North East, Midlands and Lallans.

Examples
What - Fit, Whit, Wit
Where - Far, Whar, War
Why - Hoo, How, How

Despite having watched a fair few videos by a Shetlandic Scots speaker I can't think if they use W or Wh.

Note - Not Purple bar tape.

TBF, it's white dead hand skin/sweat colour which is worse.

ETA: I was actually going to write "#blackbartapematters", but the guy who lives in my head (he calls me "Christopher" like my parents when I did something wrong) told me not to.

It is Fayling Grayling's birthday.  This explains a lot.
