Whitby better than Japan, separated at birth and holiday weight

Stephen Huffy went to Japan and sent us some photos. I decided that Whitby was a better bet for my resurrection festival break given I had two children and a dog in tow. Anyway I think Whitby is better than Japan. Firstly, they have beautiful weather all year round and Dracula’s house. Look…

And they positively encourage the under 10’s to gamble. Heroically standing up to the law in a valiant attempt to help reflate the British economy. Whitby I salute you! Japan you have a lot of catching up to do.

Phota-grarphy. Madferit I am. Mind you I don’t like having to airbrush stuff out. I once had to airbrush a rat, took me fooking ages. You see I like me creative stuff like music and stuff.  Manchestoh is full of creative stuff. Me fave is the stuffed animals workshop, I did a mouse.

And we produce great rock stars like Morrissey, Liam Gallagher and Shane Ward. Look they are so famous that they attract fans from as far away as Billingham.
