I used to live just outside Cleethorpes, and some wise-ass broke and re-arranged the letters on one of those old wooden direction/mileage signs from CLEETHORPES to CLITHERPES. Just thought I'd share that with you.
1970s holiday-makers' advert: "Come to Cleethorpes - it's better than fucking Spain!" Clearly aimed at ignorant Yorkies.
