Dumpling, Pudding, Bun...

As you probably know, each member of each county has a nickname. For instance, those that come from Devon are called 'Devonshire Dumplings,' those from Yorkshire 'Yorkshire Puddings' and those from Bath 'Bath Buns.' What is it from your county?

    Positive. :) Knew about it since I was a wee nipper. Don't think it's well-known though.

    Here`s the story;

    It seems the villagers of Wiltshire were wont to dealing in illicit spirits - the alcoholic kind, not the witchy stuff. This was in the days when most of rural England seemed to be doing the same - smuggling in French brandy to the coves of Devon and Dorset, trundling it in farmers' carts past dim-witted Excisemen, hiding it in the most unlikely places before selling it to foppish aristos who served it to the local magistrate. We've all seen the films.

    It seems the Smugglers of Devizes had hidden their barrels in the village pond.

    (Why, for God's sake? Couldn't they find a haystack? Or a secret passage to the crypt of the church?)

    So, they hid the barrels in the village pond. Then, by the light of a full, Westcountry moon, they set out to retrieve the contraband. At this point, the Excisemen turned up, wanting to know what they were up to at such an ungodly hour.

    Thinking quickly, the smugglers played dumb.

    "Arrr - we be raking for that girt big cheese"

    The revenue men saw that they were looking at the reflection of the full moon, and burst out laughing. Dismissing the miscreants as thick-as-two-short-plank yokels, they left the villagers to their "cheese".

    So, that's why Wiltshiremen are known as "Moonrakers".

    :D

    because i just read every word of this post i have forgotten what the thread was about but ...i'm full of contraband now. this country has always been a smuggling people. in or out. it's a black economy that is now worth billions of pounds. which feeds into the white economy and supports under privalaged areas by way of crime. it wreaks havoc ...
    i'm rambling again.
