A Derbyshire Story

Standard

A fellow boarded a train at Ilkeston and found himself in a compartment with three other men. As the train pulled out of the station, he began to fumble in his pockets. Then, turning to the first passenger he said:
     “An yo gorra match?”
     “Neow”
He turned to the next man:
     “An yo gorra match?”
     “Neow”
He turned to the third man:
     “An yo gorra match?”
     “Neow”
In despair he cried:
     “Antonyonyuhonyonyuh?”
