gulogulo: "Put her on the beach and I'm sure children will run the other way." Is the ratio of beach to children running a standard unit of donkey measurement in GB?

Now I Is!: R.I.P.
Pert: In the UK, due to the prohibition on private gun ownership, we are forced to amuse ourselves in other ways. Traditionally, a trip to the British seaside will involve bad tattoos, novelty hats and a ride along the beach on a donkey..... and rain, lots and lots of rain.So normally children would run TOWARDS the donkey for a pleasure ride.
Silly Jesus: Why do the Brit-ish always say "I'm at X, which is near X?"I'm reporting from (rainy British place named after a stream) NEAR (other rainy British place named after a stream).Is the geography there really that confusing?
Danack: Silly Jesus: Why do the Brit-ish always say "I'm at X, which is near X?"I'm reporting from (rainy British place named after a stream) NEAR (other rainy British place named after a stream).Is the geography there really that confusing?Yes, we have lots of teeny, tiny villages that most of the country have never heard of. Whenever you hear a reporter say "I'm at X, which is near Y" then you can basically translate it to "I'm in the middle of nowhere, and the closest thing to civilisation nearby that you may have heard of is Y".Here is a Google maps link for the Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary. There are lots of fields and fark all else nearby.
Silly Jesus: Thank you...that's interesting.He should have said he was near the North Sea.
