You're right Brendan, I've heard it's now very vibrant and a super place. I didn't mean to sound disparaging in my description of Newcastle in the late forties, it's just I was a southerner and as a small girl found it all a bit daunting. My dad of course had been born in North Shields and was quite at home, but my Irish mum also found it a bit grim and chilly! The thing I disliked most was the lack of a blade of grass or flowers. Just a tiny yard, and the back lane for the netties to be emptied.

I went to Newcastle in the late forties with my parents. In those days all the buildings seemed to be black or grey. The Tyne had a forest of huge cranes along its length. And all the men wore cloth caps and looked downtrodden and tired. My grandparents house (three rooms) had an iron range for cooking and heating, glowing with coal. The toilet ('nettie') was outside. 'Bwoats' were everywhere, fishing or transporting goods. The air was smoky and pricked your throat. My grannie made stottie kyek. She spoke such broad Geordie I couldn't understand a word. They all said "Eeeee!" aand "Why aye!" etc. I didn't like it much, it was so very alien to my life down in Middlesex. It was also freezing cold up there!

I told this story in a Kiwi folk club a couple of weeks ago. It got two laughs. Guess how many Geordies were in the room.

There was a little school up there receiving a visit from the Schools Inspector, who was a bible-basher. He was impressed by the school, but couldn't resist banging his drum, so he held up a small coin and said;
"The first child who can answer this question will win this sixpence! Who threw Daniel into the lion's den?"

Dead silence.

"Come on, children. Who threw Daniel into the lions den?

Much looking blankly at each other, then a mutter from the back.

"Come on, that boy, speak up! What did you say?"

"AAA SID, NOOO BUGGAH KNAAS, SIR!"

"Well done, young man, very well done! Here's your sixpence!


But in the south we pronounce it 'Nebuchadnezzar.'"

A Geordie boy writing about his holidays on the first day back to school wrote, "Me and me dad, us went fishing."

The teacher looked over his shoulder and said, "We went fishing!"

"Why," exclaimed the lad in a puzzled tone, "me and me dad."

Whee gets that one? Or should I put it into the "Jokes people don't get" thread?

I got a parking ticket in Newcastle, just by the High Level bridge, back in 1972. I was so upset I nearly headed straight back to NZ but instead I stopped for a cup of tea with Colin Ross and Ray Fisher - and spent the next week in Monkseaton, following the High Level Ranters and having the best week of my holiday! Taking publicity photos under the gibbet for "A mile to ride" and having my picture in the Hexham Courant.
Yes, I've been to Geordie land!

When I was in top class at a Midlands junior school we stood at the front of the hall facing the rest of the school. We took it in turns to read the Lord's Prayer line by line with the school repeating each line.

Come my turn, with my Geordie accent, I said "Our Father which art in heaven" and there was absolute silence.

Many years later a pal asked if I had seen so-and-so. I hadn't. When I saw him again later I asked if he had found him yet. "No", he replied in his best Brummie accent, "he ay on the fowan!".

Judi's taught the puppy to obey several commands. I have to use her Brummie accent before he does anything I tell him...

I live 3 miles from Ashington, right where pitmatic meets rural Northumbrian, which is a whole different accent / dialect again.

Back in the days when the village had a post office, listening to customers in the queue on pension collection day was an exercise in linguistics.

They speak the nearest to "Angle-ish" that there is anywhere in the UK, I think. Its not a dialect, it's a language. For dealings with outsiders, they switch to "modern" English, but do appreciate it if outsiders make the effort to choose their words carefully!

My old Grandad was born, bred and lived all his life in North Shields. I well remember him taking me to see the fishing 'bwoats' and being thrown a herring by a man, for our tea. My Grandad tried to teach me Blaydon Races. He took me to his local pub, thick Players smoke, cloth caps and whippets. I was four. He sat me on the bar and I began to sing. But I was a rather posh little Middlesex girl, and sang "All the leds end lesses thear, All with smailing faices, going along the Scotswood Road... to see the Bleeding Races." The men roared, but my poor Grandad wasn't best pleased! (I couldn't understand a word my Granny said, except "Eeee!")

Right. A joke's never very funny when you have to explain it. But if you don't understand a word, then it's not funny at all. So here goes:

In British pre-decimal currency, a bob was slang for a shilling - one twentieth of a pound.

The Boy Scouts and their younger equivalents, the Cub Socuts - usually abbreviated to "Scouts" and "Cubs" - used to devote a week to carrying out odd jobs for householders in return for a shilling for Scout funds. This continued to be called Bob-a-Job Week, even though the amount of money donated gradually went up until eventually the practice of encouraging young boys to knock on strangers' doors was scrapped.

So.

The policeman thinks the drver is reporting that he's run over a kerb (or curb, in the U.S.).

He is, in fact, reporting that he's run over a small boy who was out doing good deeds. "I've just run over a Cub ... and it's Bob-a-Job Week, too."


Whey, yer bugga! Ah'll have ter gan fer a lie-doon, noo!

Ashington is a large (ex) pit village about 15 miles north of Newcastle. The first time I heard the 'perm' joke at the top of this thread it was told by a Geordie about Ashington. When I first worked there it took me about a month before I could claim to understand at least half of what was said to me! (They say that their dialect is pitmatic Geordie.)

Next day Geordie gets on the road wuth his double-decker bus. Two o'clock in the afternoon the phone rings in the bus depot. Geordies on the phone, "Can ye git oot here sharp to Porcy Street, the bus has gone through a shop window, broken glass aall ower".

And do I notice a distinct lack of respect for the good people of Sunderland by the equaly upright citizens of Newcastle...

Over here in Manchester we have scouse jokes (and I think Liverpudlians reciprocate with 'mank' jokes)

A primary teacher starts a new job at a school in North London and, trying to make a good impression on her first day, explains to her class that she is a Spurs fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Spurs fans. Everyone in the class raises their hand except one little girl. The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says: "Mary, why didn't you raise your hand?" "Because I'm not a Spurs fan," she replied. The teacher, still shocked, asked: "Well, if you're not a Spurs fan, then who are you a fan of?" "I'm an Arsenal fan, and proud of it," Mary replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. "Mary, why are you an Arsenal fan?" "Because my mum and dad are from Highbury, and my mum is an Arsenal fan and my dad is an Arsenal fan, so I'm an Arsenal fan too!" "Well," said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, "that's no reason for you to be an Arsenal fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all of the time. What if your mum was a prostitute and your dad was a drug addict and a car thief? What would you be then?" "Then I'd be a Liverpool fan", said Mary.

Ohmigod I love Geordie humour. Keep them coming. Americans mystified by all this might like to check out www.viz.co.uk. Viz is an extremely funny adult comic published in Newcastle and while not all the characters are Geordies, some of the funniest are. Sid the Sexist, I seem to remember, was a Geordie, and Biffa Bacon, too. The Fat Slags as well? Although my favourite character was from Dorset (I think) Farmer Palmer. ("Get orf moy laaaand")

A true Geordie-speak story:

Shortly after arriving on Tyneside (around 30 years ago, and I'm still here!) I went to Newcastle's Central Station, and asked for a ticket to Corbridge - a village about twenty miles to the east. The official at the window shook his head and said: "Yer hevter pee on the Treen!" This left me baffled. For folks of my vintage, the Treens were inhabitants of the planet Venus, whose dastardly plans for the conquest of Earth were frustrated by our comic book hero, Dan Dare - Pilot of the Future. For a moment I had visions of doing to the Mekon (the chief Treen)what DD had been wanting to do to him since the comic strip began. And then it clicked - the ticket man was telling me that I had to PAY on the TRAIN. What a relief!

Wassail!

Anglo - I'm sure Spike Milligan tells a tale of when he was in the army under a Geordie sergeant who told them to "walk around the clock" (as they heard it)....

A little girl is walking along the sea front at South Shields when a great big rottweiler runs up and attacks her. A man runs to the rescue, pulls the dog off her and snaps its neck in the process. Another man comes running up to him and says, "I saw what you did and it was amazing! I'm a reporter for the Chronicle, can I write a story about you? The headline could be 'South Shields Saviour'"

The first man replies, "Actually, I'm not from South Shields".

"Well, Geordie hero saves girl"

"Actually, I'm from Sunderland"

"Ok, I know the perfect headline, leave it to me"

The Sunderland man gets the Chronicle especially the next day to see what has been written about him and sees the headline...

"SAVAGE MACKEM SLAYS FAMILY PET"

They both got out to examine the dammage and exchange insurance companies. Two days later the Frenchman was wondering around Newcastle looking for an insurance company called "Haddaway and Shite"

Well, the perm joke had me in stitches. Like the fellow who hurt his leg at work, the (regular English) doctor says, "Don't walk on it for a week." Geordie says, "Work! (pronounced 'walk'). Man, I cannae even walk (pronounced something like 'wark').
