Second City Stories

When my muse deserts me I can always rely on the Manchester Evening News (free City Edition) for blogging inspiration.

Of course yesterday's edition (Scolari boys shot down in flames) was full of United's three - nil victory over Chelsea.

Ziggi will take full credit for this.

In order to knock Liverpool from the top spot, I shall now be a devoted Man United supporter, except for the match on 7th February for obvious reasons.

The front page exposed a Primark sweatshop in Manchester (not India or China this time) where machinists are badly treated and paid only £3 an hour.

No - I don't think its address was Coronation Street.

But by far the best story is ‘Nude sex romp in Oldham office window‘. A group of about 20 onlookers gathered to watch and cheer them on but the naked couple were having far too much fun to notice.

See - I told you Oldham was exciting.

Unfortunately there wasn’t a picture - so I provided the one above.

But perhaps you prefer this one ....

... or ..... Naked Morris dancing anyone?

you know I was asking the other day if I could borrow some of your images. . .

(I love SuperStock and have often thought of taking out a subscription)

'The pair were suspended while the probe was carried out.'

I think we need more details of the sexual practices in Oldham.

Today's Daily Mirror should set your spirit soaring. David Bowie is resposible for the credit crunch. No really, he is. Apparantly.

And there was me thinking Oldhamites restricted themselves to tea, digestive biscuits, and necrophilia.

Blogger Vicus Scurra said...

Dave, I don't want to read the article, so please satisfy my curiosity by telling how big the probe was, and how many people it took to carry it out.
At least no one has been so corny as to ask "Is this the way to Oldham in Lancashire?"

You expect people from Oldham to have 'boundary issues' but I'm amused to discover they worked for an organisation called "Unity Partnership".

I 'borrowed' it as usual - I thought if I kept the logo they wouldn't mind.

I shall investigate these sexual practices personally and report back.

'Securitisation' - sounds like another Bushism.
But I won't have a word said against David.

It's so cold in Oldham - everyone's a frozen stiff.

M60 through Ashton-under-Lyne.
Oh sorry - were you talking to Dave?

'Unity Partnership' sounds very appropriate in this instance.

"Oldham & Beetham". That would be a good name for the local paper.

Oh bugger, I've just noticed Vicus's comment.

The papers have been sounding the death knell recently for Morris Dancing.

Surely they haven't seen this spirited group?

I now have visions of Carla & Tony getting carried away over the weekly payroll.

Another witness said: "They weren't really young. The man seemed to be quite keen.." In that case, I'm glad I'm not young.

I was going for the probe as well but Dave beat me to it...

Mr Murph:
It's OK.
You can Oldham and let Vicus Beetham.

I heard about that too.
I wonder where they wear their bells?

Maybe ... or even over the photocopier (you won't live that one down in a hurry).

As long as he was keen and able.

That Dave is setting a very bad example.
Or perhaps you influenced him with those 'double entendres'.

Naked Morris dancing? Oh, the horror!

What's with the horse outfit?

I,ve Been To Primark in Oldham!Its wasnt very exciting that day!
(p.s. the "link" is up)

Maybe Oldham has decided to put the addage "sex sells" to the test and were adviertising a new product line? The 20 on-lookers were merely window shopping... working up the courage to order a brunette in their size and try her on in the changing rooms... Hmm. Might be worth the train fare...

Naked Morris dancing in freezing Oldham is only for the strong and fit with a taste bypass.

Probably some ancient Morris tradition or perhaps just to hide his dick.

I've read the link and it's fascinating. Must go and visit.
I watched that programme last night (just beacuse I like Karen McDonald) and found it quite gripping.
Thanks for the info.

Well Oldham certainly needs a new gimmick.
But I'm sure they'd feel happier keeping their clogs and shawl on.

Until this very moment, I had no idea that so many models undergo Phanstiel caesarean sections.

And we are quite thankful for that.

spare us the morris dancers please

there was nowt like that going on when I worked in Oldham

Ma Beasty says I have to wear a vest in this weather to protect my brave little chest, so nekkid morris dancing is on hold

2:04 pm  
Blogger MJ said...

Beast: Yet you still insist on wearing jingle bells on your dangly bits.

3:21 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

No that's a tummy tuck. How do you think they keep so thin?

We certainly are - this is a respectable blog.

Morris Dancers are now an endangered species and must be protected by law.
Just as long as we don't actually have to watch them.

Fair enough - just decorate your vest with red ribbons and a few bells and off you go.
Ma Beasty and her pals can serve refreshments in the interval.

I'm sure he does - they go so well with the banana.

You know, I suspect those ladies in the top photo have fake boobies--but they still lovely nonetheless.

Now, what exactly was the problem with the screwing couple? Were they having sex during work time? I mean, don't they get breaks?

Blogger zIggI said...

Is this the way to Oldham in Lancashire?

5:31 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Aren't they georgeous and so low maintenance.
The couple should have done it in the photocopier room. Then they could have kept a record.

I see that you always do what Vicus advises ... against.

Wow, that's almost as good as 'Shed Fire!'

It's a thrill-a-minute here in Oxford.

Was it a B&Q shed?
