Ice Bear


I can't believe it.

This scummy godforsaken pit of a hell hole actually won the bid to become the European Capital of Culture.

What could they possibly teach the rest of Europe?

  • How to avoid work while still getting the most of your benefits?

  • How to practice inbreeding better?

  • How to steal cars faster?

  • Advanced Shoplifting 101?

  • Show what the latest fashion in shellsuits are?

I kid you not, they still wear shellsuits up here, and virtually every negative stereotype about Liverpool is indeed largely correct. How they managed to win this I will never understand.
Unless it was blackmail, which I could easily believe considering the scumminess of this place.
