Brilliant.

Although points off for no Pungas Catfich.
One forumista would have had to change his name to, “Guardian Ada”.
Or potentially, “Grauniad Aad”.

Much as I have an aversion to anything American, the 'thundering chickens' is classic.😂

Most grauniad readers are probably just thinking that Yeltz is another typo. ::)

In fact maybe I've just solved the mystery! Move over Pungas!

And apropos of nothing other than ego, not the first Yeltz-er to feature in the Graun. I only post here because of my childish joy at being in print saying the very worst word. (Not Tamworth).

A crackling phone call from the Grove to the Guardian newsroom in post WW1 England. A junior reporter is at his first football match.
"Hello"
"Hello"
"The Blues from Halesowen have beaten the yellows from Burton by three to two"
"What?"
"The Blues from Halesowen have beaten the yellows from Burton by three to two"
"The boozy Halesowen yelaz beat Burton by thirty two?"
"Yes"
"Ok. Bye"
"Bye"

Monday's paper review.
Drunken Yeltz score Thirty Two! It must be some ale, that Banks's.

And there we have it. It was obvious all along. Sorry Ada....

Sloppy journalism. I blame Max Rushden. The truth remains the truth 😉
