In July of this year passionate Yorkshireman, Martyn Barrow retired from his career in Recruitment and quickly became bored. Disappointed at the lack of funny material about Yorkshire he decided to set up yorkshirehumour.com, a place where Yorkshirepeople can share jokes, anecdotes, funny stories or just have a chin wag about what Martyn calls ‘God’s own County’
In the four months since he started followers of the community have rocketed to over 50,000 on various social media of which Facebook is the largest.
Members come from all around the world
Martyn said ‘Eh up, Yorkshire is a state of mind not just a place. Lot’s of folk think we’re miserable and dour but we’re not. Our sense of humour is complicated and sophisticated and not best understood by outsiders. Yorkshirehumour.com is like a Community Centre to us. It’s a little bit of luxury for us by heck’
Regular Competitions have revealed the TOP THREE Yorkshire jokes are:
1 A man with piles went to a chemist in Barnsley and asked for some arse creak
‘Certainly’ said the chemist, ‘we’ve got vanilla, chocolate, strawberry……….’
2 A Leeds woman took her cat to the vet saying it was being sick
Is it a tom? Asked the vet?
‘Nay’ she replied, ‘ I’ve brought it wi’ us!’
3 A bloke from Sheffield takes his dog’s body to the jeweller and says he wants a statue made to remember it by.
‘Will 18 Carat be alright?’ asks the jeweller
‘Nay lad’ the bloke replies, ‘ I want him chewin t’ bone!’
