Girl: That’s disgusting… I prefer Burger King.

“I'm not a bounty hunter, I'm a Jedi.”

Woman: So it was this art thing, right? And this woman is reading from The Bible in a proper chavvy accent on a stage. Then a bloke walks onto the stage dragging a dead swan and puts his finger up her arse.
Man: Wait. What’s this again?
Woman: Art.

“Yeah, he got confiscated from a drug dealer's house in Leeds.”

“Elliot, man, why? She's dirty. She's got the clap.”

Teen girl 1: Aww yeah. Let’s do that instead.

“So yeah, everyone in my family is called Sid. My name’s Sid, my dad's name's Sid, my sister's name’s Sid. Even my daughter’s name’s Sid.”

Woman: Ooo babe, it's V-Day next week
Man: Isn't that when loads of people died?


We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
