Certainly not!! I'm an Ex-pat Londoner, living in Lancashire - the folks up in Cumbria are a rum lot, even at the best of times; and I guess World Gurning Championships are hardly the best of times, if not exactly the worst of times.

Good! They left me with a "bad taste" in my mouth of a sort.
Not actually, just trying to imagine a real face again.

Hmmm the guy who won had a fairly repulsive face even when not competing, I must say.

Perhaps that is the source of his inspiration. I can imagine
him doing things in front of the mirror for hours.
Cut when shaving and then cringing would also inspire.
I really enjoyed the looks on the faces of the kids watching
the competition.

I got up to watch the sun rise
Twas the usual sight for sore eyes.
...and I saw a green flash
...as I looked through the sash!
Can you say what that might signalize?

DOWAGER - DRAW

When Mary, the Dowager Queen*,
Was told a green flash had been seen,
Said, Im told that a clear
Pelucid atmosphere
Is a prerequisite for this scene."


TRANSLITERATE - TRANSPORT

*Mother of Edward VIII and George VI - died just before Coronation of Elizabeth II, so she was Dowager Queen Mother for almost a year.
