In the United Kingdom, North of Birmingham. It's where the greatest people on Earth live.

Great northern people include Geoffrey Boycott, Sean Bean.

Great northern cities include Sheffield, Leeds, Sunderland, Manchester and Liverpool.

Great inventions in the north include Trains, TV's, Banapkins and Pie.

It is a well established fact that the north finished on the winning side of every war ever fought, including the alamo and Pearl Harbour.

The tell tales signs that you're in the north are gravy, bitter, violence, streets paved with gold and battered housewives.
Ooh Daddy, please can we move up to Sunderland, so at least my kids have a chance of being Northern!

Northerners are often depicted as being scruffy, dirty, rude, obnoxious folk. Unfortunatly, this is the way they are viewed and portrayed but it couldn't be further from the truth. It is assumed that, because of the northern accent, northeners are stupid and uneducated. This is yet again untrue, it is just an accent. A way of speaking. Would you call a texan an idiot for speaking in the way they do? of course not. Would you call a londoner an idiot for speaking the way they do? of course not. That is exactly the same. People say northeners should get a full grasp on the english language but the truth is that they do have a ful grasp on the english language, they just pronounce words differently.

Northeners are very down to earth people, they try hard and alway give a good days work. Coming from one of the poorest parts of England does not stop them from being lovely and considerate.
Most often than not it is southeners that insult northeners. This is due to the North South Divide. To be fair Northeners have a porr view on southeners. It is all fair.

A superior breed of American when compared to the neighboring southerner. Southerners' main beef with northerners is that northerners "think they're better than southerners". It's not that we think this, we know it. Education throughout northern states has been proven time and time again to be superior to that of the south, and the north doesn't have a rich history laden with racism and hate. Also, while many northerners are cultured and intellectual, southerners tend to ruin the international perspective of Americans, and thus many countries think of us as violent, racist, fat, and stupid.
Northerner: Evening, sir. Fine day we're having, is it not?

Southerner: Yep yep. Great dey fer huuntin faggots.

An unintelligent individual who is usually spotted wearing Adidas and Le Coq Sportif tracksuits in an order to be perceived as "Trendy". Often found rifling through bins for food, they are the lowest form of scum, after Australians.

Communicate using animal like slang and resort to violence for any possible reason. This is often started by the large swarms of Chavs or Townies hanging under every shop doorway. Favor shops like Tesco and the local corner shops where they are seen illegally buying Cigarettes and cheap Booze.

Always carry drugs on their person as they are able to be bought at every turn.

Northern England, Why live any where else?

A "Yankee."

Someone who can't stand southern accents, but have obviously never had to listen to themselves talk.

Someone who is incredibly rude, obnoxious, and just mean at times.

Someone who thinks that they're better than you if you were born south of the Mason/Dixie line.

My new teacher is a Northerner, and I can't stand to listen to her talk.
