Its the stinkiest spot in the north west of England

Great shot whether stinky or not, and anybody that wears a hoody in summer is up to no good. Or has a very bad hair day.

The guy in the hood is saying “Here yer are mate, ‘ave a Wine Gum” and the other one is saying “Have yer got a red one?”

It time that a new home was found for Bithells as that is where the stench is from.

Poet, there was always one that you couldn't get wasn't there? You ended up with umpteen copies of the rest of the set but you could never find the one you were missing for love nor money.

They might be off that programme Long Lost Family! Then they appear on Jeremy Kyle in a couple of weeks telling how they found one another - so they can have a free DNA test done and meet the rest of the family. Should be good.

Whats the difference between a stench and a stink, I know a few years ago when Hoscar Moss had a pong, the posh people in Parbold used to say there is a stench in the air.
But Ive never known Wigan to have any stench's.

Heard today Nice Pac is closing down not making any money.

DTease, some of these collections were really graphic if I rightly recall.
I collected American Civil War and World War Two in the 60's showing scenes of Union cavalry men impaled on wooden stakes and POWs being tortured by the Japanese. Good wholesome stuff what?
Would be considered child abuse today no doubt.
I never completed any set and had many twicers on my check lists.
