With Yorkshire Day coming up this Saturday come and see how well you know the county.
Test yourself in our Yorkshire quiz to see if you should be considered a local legend or should trudge around shamefaced at your lack of Yorkie knowledge.
How Yorkshire are you?
You may have a flat cap, gone to watch the Tour de France last year and enjoy leisurely walks in the countryside but just how Yorkshire are you?
Pit your wits against our test to find out if you are a true Yorkshire great or you should be relearning Ilkley moor bar t’at.
What should you have on your Yorkshire pudding?
Gravy – and lots of it!
Sometimes life is a bit hard, even though we don’t like to moan. But what tipple do Yorkshiremen traditionally like to relax with?
A gin and tonic
What is Yorkshire best known as?
God’s own country
Geoff Boycott’s garden
What do we do when we ‘go t’werk’?
Go and earn some dosh
Dance like Miley Cyrus
Who would we say ‘alright love’ to?
A long-term partner or wife
Everyone we meet
Someone we were trying to flirt with
What temperature equals t-shirt weather in Yorkshire?
35c – like it is in Corfu!
If someone is being ‘mardy’ they are?
Having a right strop
A bit hungry
In need of a good lie down
What time do we have dinner in Yorkshire?
Yorkshire is the home of British cricket. The Tykes last County Championship was in?
What you receive when you have an accident
That guy from Last of the Summer Wine
Now then, bit of work to do here
Time for the hard word now. You’d better stock up on Yorkshire Tea and parkin and make notes while watching that Heartbeat boxset to learn more.
You’re not too far off. But it still wouldn’t hurt to get out and about to absorb some more of that Yorkie culture.
You’re near as makes n’matter to being a top Yorkie. Take your place amongst Yorkshire’s favourite sons and daughters.
