RE: Geordie "border" question

I've always assumed anyone born south of the Tyne was French. Whenever we used to venture down south to Newcastle, suddenly all the place names went weird and foreign, like Seaton De la Val, and Houghton le Spring, Chester Le Street. French french fucking french.

Get yourselves some proper Northumbrian names like Cambois and Beaufront.... um.

Bollocks.

South of the tyne isn't geordie, it's mackem, durham or smoggie, darlo or monkey hangar territory.
In Northumberland I'm not sure if they're Geordie or not.

Ask him what the difference is between Batman + a Scouser.
Answer is, Batman can go out without Robin (robbing!!)

PS. Thanks for the tip last year about "Black Canyon of the Gunnison" We went + it was awesome!!

RE: Geordie "border" question

(1st September 2010 12:26 AM)ColoradoMagpie Wrote: Guests cannot see links in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see links.So I worker with a guy from Liverpool, he's taken to calling me a "Monkey hanger." I look up this term and see that it refers to events from Hartlepool. But Hartlepool is quite close to Newcastle (seemingly per Google maps), and so I'm wondering if the moniker includes folk from the area area around Hartlepool--and specifically all the way out to Newcastle--or if this guy is taking license with the term?

Related: As Hartlepool is in the NE, are they "Geordies?". And while I'm getting my NE history/border/tribe education, are those from Sunderland and Middlesboro Geordies or not?

Thanks,

Ej

A few decades ago the term "Geordie" could apply to people from Northumberland and Sunderland to the south. I can even remember the expression "a Geordie, from Sunderland, said ....".

It used to be said Ashington was "where proper Geordies come from" - it was the home of the Charltons and Jackie Milburn after all. This was probably a reference to the miners too, where one of the derivations of the term Geordie comes from.

Its really only over the last 30 years or so that the term Geordie has narrowed to just Tyneside as far as I can gather - and also the Sky way of calling NUFC and its fans "The Geordies" has narrowed it even further to such an extent where the two have become synonyous.

It still makes me laugh that Sunderland dwellers now happily call themselves mackems, when throughout my youth it was meant to be a term of abuse over their frankly nauseating accent.

But of course at one point the term "Geordie" was meant to be term of abuse, so glass houses and stones spring to mind.

Anyway, the Scouse gobshite is just winding you up Tex. Tell him to stick to robbing and being "hilarious" - Hartlepool has fuck all to do with Newcastle.

ps. Middlesbrough has never been associated with Geordies, and indeed when I was a lad was a part of Yorkshire. Still is in my little world.

I find it staggering to be honest, that Colorado managed to find a working dipper. Easier finding a working Tiger Moth i'd have thought.

Glad you enjoyed it- it really is stunning. Take the narrow gauge RR?

Sand-dancer. . . Nope, no clue one that one either.

So, I do read and learn from y'all. I've notice that often y'all poke fun at liverpool for always needing a moment of silence. I have no idea why. Anyhow, I've started playing indoor soccer. We play a group of British guys the other day (cleverly named The Damned United), and the have a guy they are calling "scouser.". He's a whining bastard who screams bloody murder if you touch him, but cries over the injustice in the world when he's whistled for a foul. Anyhow, after a particularly whiney moment I asked him if we needed a moment of silence over this latest tragedy. The look on his face was priceless as he was trying to figure out if I had actually said what he thought I'd said, and also if I understood the meaning of of what I'd said (which is no).

So, funny moment with ammo provided by all of you.

Brilliant. That is a priceless moment, and I am more than mildly envious of your opportunity to say it.

The minutes silence is in tribute to 96 Livrerpool fans who died at Hillsbororough Stadium back in the 80s: no one doubts their loss, but it was over 20 years ago. Scousers like to wallow in their misery. And there is a lot of that.
