Dinner Lady Scares Off Robber With Masks of Gary Monk and Gordon Strachan

Happily, the dinner lady is doing fine but is receiving counselling because she saw the masks as well, and that can't have been easy for her. Maybe, this is something we should do for all my partners? Lovely Christmas presents, possibly.

‘He told me that some of his friends still wake up in the middle of the night in absolute terror shouting things like, ‘How much, no, £22 million for those 2 absolutely useless utter d***head so-called strikers’ and ‘£6 million for Jimmy Saville’ but I might have got the names mixed up there.’
 
bear66 Your observation skills are exemplary. We had no idea anyone would pick up on that one or is it you have to access to certain confidential information? We are hearing that this ‘partnering’ may well be in the pipeline and we may well have a story on it that we haven’t yet published. Lots of respect!👏

Both towns have many things in common. Both were originally farmland that later established ironworks. Middlesbrough received it's Royal Charter a few years before Tunbridge became Royal Tunbridge Wells. And the time to travel by train from Middlesbrough to London is exactly the same time that it took to get from Tunbridge to London by omnibus in 1842! Both have a football team that have never won at Wembley! Amazing coincidences that surely needs consideration for formal twinning.

Also I don't live in either, there's another huge coincidence
 
Good morning bear. Other than the Wembley thing but we had no idea how similar the 2 places are. How do you know so much about Tunbridge Wells? There’s a big story about the 2 places that we’re about to release very shortly, probably Saturday, but have had to keep under wraps until now for various reasons. It’s genuinely exciting and will bring real happiness to the town!

To those who’ve read the article. 2 things. Has the anger about Strachan and Monk subsided now and we’ve all moved on with Warnock? How much of a deterrent do you think Strachan and Monk masks can be?

I went there once when I was 4 years old.
 
FlapJacks Thank you. We were wondering if you could shed any light on why one is spelt with a ‘u’ and the other with an ‘o’? Also, why does Tonbridge not have a Wells? Is that fair, in your opinion?
Boro army. Apparently, Anya has just remarried and Getchamask is actually her new surname. Did you know something about this?
Muttley We absolutely agree but what was supposed to do in that situation? She’d left all her guns at home so she was able to carry the iceberg lettuce and the fags. Btw, did you know that the word ‘dastardly’ has almost completely disappeared from the language of Middlesbrough. Not heard it said in years.
bear We’ve just got out calculator out and we estimate, using all best algorithms and logarithms, that you are somewhere between 5 and 108 years old?

Sadly I cannot - however I can confirm that most people pronounce Tonbridge as Tunbridge.

Edit: It's actually Royal Tunbridge Wells ... which seems rather grander than is strictly necessary.

Because one has a bridge and one doesn't.

Amazingly Tunbridge Wells has a road called Grosvenor Bridge. It's the only road in the world with that name.
 
bear If you’re flabbergasted, just think how we feel!😁. Information on Tunbridge Wells is truly enlightening. Thank you. Do you think we should start a new thread about the place before the match tonight?🤔
Flapjacks We wondered if you could spend the whole weekend, and beyond if you feel necessary, researching the different spelling s and maybe get back to us early next
week! If you don’t, there are going to be a lot of disappointed people out there.🤪
