In the proud country of Great Britain, almost at its dead centre, stands the not-so-proud city of Birmingham. Often thought, possibly mistakenly, to be the country's second largest city, it has stood since the dawn of the middle ages. Around the mid 18th century, it was noticed that the people who inhabited Birmingham demonstrated some peculiar habits and had appeared to have developed their own language, which amongst the English Language scholars of the time became known as the Brum language, so named because Birmingham in the brum language was Brummingham. As a direct result of this, the people also became known to the anthropologists of the day as "Brummies". The name also coincided nicely with the brummmm sound of car engines accelerating away from the city centre in shock and disappointment.
Brum is located on the north shore of India connected by a single rope bridge guarded by the honey monster. (Whenever you see the honey monster on television speaking impartially about his love of Sugar Puffs, it means that the rope bridge is unguarded- run!)
It is in fact the birth place of the curry, the paper airplane, an' the braille limit addition game boy. Brum was immortalised in the famous song by Peter 'I've ate too many pies' Koy named "do yaouw knoo the woy ter shitty shitty Burminum". The truth is naaa 'un actually knows the woy ter Burminum, an' once yaouw get the'er its labarynth loike corridors mane yaouw can never escape. Ozzy Osbourne, Birmingham's self proclaimed prodigal owern is in fact a Mexican an' got lost on the woy fer his mornen shift ter taco bell, imprisoned an' fed porridge fer 'eass withered his skin an' warped his memory.
The main currency in Burminum is rain. Rain is also the chief export of Burminum, although despair, bleakness an' unattractiveness am close behind.
Burminum was originally bright yellow but was recently repainted all in uniform grey.
Brummoys or 'bummers' as the scots affectionately refer ter them yav a dialect not too dissimilar ter ents. Ents on the other donny am much easier ter comprehend an' a lot mower interesten. "Ya Mam is a scrubbah"

French currently resides on a Wisconsin farm with his wife and their six liguistically challenged children where together they happily raise mules and paint poetry on silos.

Incidentally, it is the most rented DVD in Blockbuster Birmingham, proving the stupidness of Brummies.
