A swamp in Bedfordshire, England that ironically has a Luton postcode. This is probably most likely due to the embarressment of admitting to coming from Bedford. Famous ex-patriots include Paula Ratcliffe (who will forever be remembered for taking a shit in the road in the middle of a cross country run!), and Ronnie Barker. Most famous people would never admit to coming from Bedford, and leave it at the first available opportunity.
A popular party game amongst humans (i.e bipedal non-bufoniform lifeforms that don't live in Bedford) is "name five famous people from Bedford". This usually leaves people stumped after one or two. This game is similar to "name five famous people from Belgium", but infinitely more amusing due to the fact that most people from Bedford are fighting a battle of the wits unarmed.
Bedford does have it's good points...The Charles Wells Brewery, and the A6 leaving Bedford!
Has it's own rail service known as "First Capital Connect" (formerly Thameslink), However your average inbred Bedfordian would rather use Midland Mainline (and therefore overcongest what would otherwise be a good service) to commute to London as they then have the opportunity to mix with normal human beings and annoy them.
There is just not enough space to descibe how unbeleivably awful Bedford and it's denizens are. The only phrase that springs to mind is the quote from 'Good Morning Vietnam'.
"It sure sucks the sweat off a dead man's balls!". I think this comes close.
Bedford is best avoided at all/any cost, especially for those of a sensitive disposition...or anyone that has an imagination and has watched "The hills have eyes". Even East Europeans avoid it!
"Excuse me sir. I happen to notice that you have one eye in the middle of your forehead, Ginger hair, Webbed Feet and a generally Bufoniform appearance, and play the Banjo...Do you by any chance hail from Bedford?"
"How d'yer guess, I s'pose it's the fact that I have a T-shirt on with 'I'm so stupid that even stupid disowns me' gives it away?"
