Could have been worse.   Could have been on the Isle of Lucy.

That beached manatee in Ireland had something to do with this. I can feel it in my bones.

You may believe the sign is in English and Manx but it isn't.  The second language is Floridian, your reading skills depends on how stoned you are.

The Florida of the UK? I'll allow it.

But the Scilly Islands still sound sillier, although not compared to the village of Silly, France. I've been through there on a train. There is no there there. I guess it might be called the LA of the UK: lauks a-mercy!

They have palm trees in the Scilly Islands. Mind, they do put them out at some of the Channel vacation spots but take them in for bad weather.

That would be a good monster to have in the background of a movie or cartoon as an easter egg, but I expect somebody would be deeply offended, and I mean the type of person who blows up pubs and mail boxes when annoyed.

Palm trees grow on the west coast of Scotland. All about the the jet stream, making the west of UK and Ireland in particular a shiatlot more temperate than they should be, and giving them prevailing south westerly wind.

/And if you like silly place names, there's a thread in the queue about biatche, France having its Facebook page taken down.

I don't know the Manx for "chav", but the Isle of Man has chavs:

Given that's 90% Snapchat filter, she could be a 60 year old ginger man for all the data you've been given.

A fair trade, I would think.

Does it really have the reputation of being the Florida of the UK? Curious, because I did the ancestry thing, and several of my ancestors are from there.

Amusingly, IIRC census or Ellis Island records called The Isle of Man "UK".

My balls literally want to retract when I see them get air at 180 mph.  Crazy men.  This coming from a Blackbird owner.

Not really. Its reputation is more "being stuck in the 1950s", like the Channel Islands, or America.
