(We’re in GCSE Geography class, doing a topic on Changing Urban Environments. The teacher is showing some case studies about Manchester and Birmingham and their revitalisation projects.)

Teacher: So new, safer, blocks of flats have been put up for the Brummies to live in. Any questions?

Me: Well, if someone from Birmingham is called a Brummie, what’s someone from Manchester?

Classmate (without missing a beat): Inbred!

(This did not impress the teacher, who was from Manchester himself.)
