Sheffield is a city in the North of England that hosts the two football teams, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.
The inevitable depression that comes as a result of living in Sheffield is made slightly more bearable for its 550,000 residents by the fact that every few years, one of them (whether it be Jarvis Cocker, Arctic Monkeys or Jessica Ennis) seems to become the short-lived feature of pop culture hysteria.
When British people think of Sheffield they think that it is most likely up north and in the county of Sheffieldshire. Some people in Sheffield talk about Hallamshire, although this seems to be in the same category of place as Narnia or the Hundred Acre Wood.
The city of Cheffield was founded in 1200 by the male chef Michelle Roux and his group of rouge culinary chefs called Robbing Roux and his Band of Merry Soux Chefs. They needed a place a to rest up but since Liverpool and Manchester were taken up by the evil Sheriff of PorkAndHam and his sidekick Guy of Gisbourne Cheeses.
Then sometime between the 1600's and 1610's Michel Roux ran away to marry his Foxy girlfriend in the grand castle of Spamalot ruled by the legendary Monty Python. After this the new up and coming chef Sir Lloyd of Liverpool decided to move the gang of chefs to Liverpool and some parts of Madchester. This caused the remaing residents of Cheffield to change their name to Sheffield, thinking that it would teach the people of the UK a lesson but to be truthful everyone thought Sheffield was being silly so every resident was given a slap on the wrist and were sent to their rooms.
Instances of Plagiarism
Sheffield is known throughout the world for its plagiarism (aka Copying) of its two neighbouring cities, Liverpool and Manchester. Liverpool and Manchester both have two football teams which is an idea Sheffield stole. Much like the two teams of Liverpool and Manchester both of Sheffield’s teams are awful. One of these Sheffield clubs even decided to go as far as you go and have its own disaster much like Liverpool and Manchester before them.
Liverpool and Manchester are also famous for having the living shit bombed out of them in the not so great war, Sheffield being in the middle of a war and true to form also wanted the shit bombed out of them so instead of compling to put commando camoflage on they went around in bright neon clothing.
In less recent history the city of Sheffield decided to copy Liverpool and Manchester by pretending to be involved in the industrial revolution. In a quote from the leader of the RSPB (Royal Society for the Prevention of Birds) he stated that: 'the city of Sheffield had bugger all to do with the Industrial Revolution therefore they deserve no credit what so ever'. This quote sums up the opinion of many angry Mancunians and Liverpudlians who most commonly express this opinion after they've consumed 2 pints of Bitter and packet of Cheese and Onion Crisps.
The most notable resident/political prisoner of Sheffield was the the much disliked Nick Clegg. He was the Liberal Democrat MP who took his party into a coalition government with Conservative Party leader David Cameron. In exchange David Cameron gave him the job of Deputy Prime Minister and an office under the stairs at Number 10. He resigned as Liberal Democrat leader after the British General Election 2015 and then lost parliamentary seat in 2017 to a Labour Party candidate.
Another notable resident was the famous Unflash Gordon. The cousin (and complete opposite) of Flash Gordon.
The Great Chef War
The Great Chef war was a battle which lasted around five minutes. This battle changed culinary history forever because during the heat of the battle the leaders of the chefs decided to pick up their laddles and ride their pans like horses away from the then city of Cheffield.
The opponents of the battle were the burger van vendeurs who served the mindless drones of the football watchers on their way to get as far away from the football match as humanely possible.
The city of Sheffield likes to think it has a wide variety of interests; this is an interest in itself because the people of Sheffield find themselves so interesting that having an interest in them is an interest to everyone else
As a result of some historical planning cock-up, Sheffield is built on seven hills, making transport, construction and cycling about as awkward as explaining Jimmy Savile's sex crimes to an oblivious old person. Another geographical phenomenon in the city is the annual flood, which lasts the entirety of the summer, and gives the council an excuse to not clean the streets in the autumn and winter months.
It is common knowledge that Sheffield has a thriving Horticultural community.
