    When tourists stop coming and spending their dosh, then you might have something else to think about!

      I wonder if the tourists will feel so insulted they’ll come to Scarborough instead…

    I’m a tourist, if I was daft enough to cone out with some of these then I’d happily expect it to be commented on.

    Some people need to realise whitby is far superior to Scarborough, much more picturesque, and the people have got a sense of humour 😉 x

    LMAO! I’m a Yank and my partner and I had our first visit to Whitby last October. LOVED it! It was everything that we imagined. Not all of us are as ignorant as those you’ve quoted. By the way, one of the reasons that we came to Whitby, other than the sites and people, was David at Humble Pie and Mash. We still correspond!

      Hi Bill, thanks for your reply. Dave at The Pie And Mash is a good guy. Says it how it is and doesnt take himself too seriously. Im pleased you liked our page, its not meant to be offensive, although those with no sense of humour choose to take it that way. Its a shame some people are a little too sensitive. The page is really a littl tongue in cheek chuckle on a very light note meant to make people laugh, locals and visitors alike 🙂

    Bill, as the Americans say “you just got upgraded to our customer appreciation program, have a good day ya’ll”

    Someone once asked me if I was at school with Captain Cook? The wrinkle cream can’t be working 😉
