Overheard In Notts

9 February 19 words: Big Baby

Big Baby heard some right tripe this month... 

“Don’t sit on my roulade.”

“I would try walking up hills backwards, but I'm afraid of falling over.”

Woman: What's in your faggots?
Butcher: Lung, kidney, bit of onion.
Woman: I thought they were supposed to have brains in 'em?

Butcher: No duck, that's who meks 'em.


“...and his gusset was right down here. I thought ‘Ooh God!’”

“I think I've got that attention definite disorder.”

"I'm nearly done. I need to get something for Craig, then I need a poo, then we can go home."

“Why are you saying ‘sneakers’? You are literally from Mansfield.”

"You know when one spliff turns into a bag of coke and four tinnies?"

“Do they do toilets in here?” – Man in Spoons

Kid: Can you tell me what the soup is? If I don’t like it, I’ll just have a garlic chewbacca.
Mum: Do you mean ciabatta?

"I can't believe you can be found guilty for stroking a back."

Person 1: Where is Guernsey?
Person 2: It's in the Channel Islands
Person 3: No it's not, it’s an island in its own right.
Person 1: Sorry, I was thinking of Grimsby.

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?
