Roger Bulstrode, a keen USA devotee from Skipton has finally accepted that the absorption of American influences and culture into his everyday life has made him look a right tit in public.

He told us: ‘It happened when I were at pub quiz wi’ me mates, like, and Tony our team’s music expert, answered the killer question and we won a joint of beef for’t Sunday lunch.’

‘Because instead of shouting “get in there Tony lad, you beauty!” like others in’t team did, I heard myself shouting “Yay! Way to go, Tone! You smashed it, dude!”

Mr Bulstrode went on to explain how his teammates then began to laugh at him and called him Donald Trump. They said things like: ‘Hey, guy, are you coming to the soccer game at Ee-land Road? Whatchoo havin’ for your dinner, Bro. Possum belly an’ grits?’

Emperor of Yorkshire Sean Bean was unavailable for comment but a source close to the Game of Thrones star said; ‘Bah goom! It’s a reet t’do and no mistake.’

Meanwhile a chastened Roger has bought himself a whippet is binge-watching early episodes of Emmerdale (Farm) in the hope that it might just help him to re-assimilate his Yorkshire roots. He said: ‘Eee, ooh knows? ‘Appen listenin’ to Amos Brearly, Mr Wilkes and Seth Armstrong might mebbes put uz reet again.
