Have had to take Mrs G to and fro' her place of work, this week, and I can't help but notice that the girls have a certain "look" about them. (Haven't spoken to any yet.)

No detriment to the girls, they look sort of sexy, but definately different.

Is it something in the air, in the genes, som'at to do with social class, breeding, work, environment, nurture, latitude, nature? Just what makes the difference?

It's on the border of South Manchester and Cheshire.

Bit of a debtors retreat, full of people who wished they lived in Alderley Edge, but can't afford it.

Bit of a posh Timperley/Poor Wilmslow, but the totties posh.

never heard of Hale where ist?Right next door to Liverpool. It has several items of historical interest including the "Childe of Hale" (http://www.halevillageonline.co.uk/#/thechildeofhale/4516285475)
Edited to say I have just noticed that it was the dull and uninteresting Hale which was meant. This (http://www.britinfo.net/cgi-bin/TLcats.cgi?s=T&ds=L&cc=BLM)says it all.

It's the high pie intake that does it.

Agreed, Pies, 100%
I now live 5 miles outside Wigan and can verify that they all walk down the street eating bloody pies. Can't seem to get a kebab anywhere after an afternoon on the ale.......

Yes its all about the pies. they have bigger gobs in wigan so they can fit a whole meat and prayter pie in at one go.
Here is a warning that you should take very serious.Do not try to talk to a wigan women without wearing a gum shield and stab vest.Keep a few pies handy to barter your way out of trouble.Remember its the home of uncle joes mint balls!!!

I always thought they looked different because they could.

Do the girls look as bad as Shaun Edwards ex Wigan RL??:}:ugh:

I asked a woman from Hale this question, which was eerily interesting....

She said, rather obscurely, that "one reason is that in Wigan they don't have bidets to pee in."

The official nickname for those from Wigan is "Pie Eaters" As a southerner with a partner from this neck of the woods I have had opportunity to study the natives and have come to the following conclusions:
The fattest women live in St.Helens,going into a pub there you are surrounded by characters from Beryl Cook paintings.The men seem to join them a bit later once they have given up the rugby playing.

The smarter girls go off to Liverpool or Manchester.A typical scouser girl has a denim skirt about ten inches long and a tan like David Dickinson,looks presentable until she has had a couple of kids,then leaves school.
Hope Mrs.E never sees this!

At a wedding reception in Leeds a few years ago, I overheard Wigan described as "That town where they don't bury their dead, they prop them up in bus shelters".

Don't know if this is relevant or not ...........

Just what makes the difference?The greater intelligence of the Lancashire Lasses. :ok:At a wedding reception in Leeds a few years ago, ......Don't know if this is relevant or not ...........Not in the slightest! The clue to this fact is the phrase "in Leeds" all self-respecting Lancastrians know that anything to do with the wrong side of the Pennines is irrelevant.

Have you seen it? The "pier", I mean. Not a patch on the one at Southport.

Aye but Wigan pier is closer to water (OK the Leeds & Liverpool canal) than Southport pier - unless you count the boating lake:\

The wiganers also have a language of their own. I often used to frequent the place for a piss-up. In the chip shops they would be asking for "gravy-dips", "babbies heads", "chips and a swimmer", "pea wet".
Used to make me chuckle anyway!

And there I was, brought up on the East Coast thinking a fish cake was made with mashed fish and mashed spud, not a slab of fish and a slab of whole spud. Flipping Lancastrians.

not a slab of fish and a slab of whole spud.

Didn't get them in the bit of Lancashire I were dragged up in! As they were more common in the southern parts of the county.
Came across them when I moved to Cumbria as well as a name change to Fish Pattie:}

aaaah Wigan, the very mention of the name makes me want to get my dancing shoes on and my northern soul collection out. Wigan Casino was the greatest ever all-nighter venue in the history of northern soul (there must be some ex soulies who are now ppruners out there) and probably explains the answer to the thread title.I would guess that many of todays wigan girls were probably concieved at Wigan bus station or railway station after an all-nighter visited by us incredibly handsome midlands lads who pulled the local girls and feeling all "loved up" due to partaking of various amounts of "illegal substances" gave a brilliant knee-trembler and produced beautiful looking local babies who presumably have matured into beautiful middle-aged ladies.Is there any other ex Wigan Casino members on here who would agree that is a fair answer to the thread title!!!:ok:

Whilst the edcucation of our international bretheren is left to us lancastrians we should mention that next door to wigan is west hoghton home of the cow yeds.
so called because a farmer found one of his cows with its head stuck in a gate, to solve the problem he cut its head off,and thats how the locals came by the name cow yeds.

Hale ain't so bad.
Spent a summer there once (felt like a whole year, but that's another story) and the Hale Wine Bar had a couple of nice lookers working there...one of which, if you asked he nicely, would flash her titties, every so often.
We had a slight problem with co-pilot George, however.
Every time the young thing 'flashed', poor 'ole George would drool all over his shirt...looked like Niagra Falls.

411A you quote "if you asked he nicely, would flash her titties" I hope this is a typing error :}

Anyway didn't AC/DC sing about the town in "Hale ain't a bad plaice to be"

That will be the Yorkshire Fish Cake, far better than that mushy variety covered in soggy breadcrumb.

Aha :eek:-intellectual argument at last.

I did mean Hale in Cheshire, (the posh one).

So do they look more attractive 'cos of their money?

And is there a diffence between attractiveness and sexiness?
