15 hilarious ways you know you’re in Liverpool

Got a lorra' love for Liverpool? The Tab shows you why Liverpool is, hands down, the funniest place to live.

Liverpool: the land of bad tans, shell-suit clad Scousers and adverse weather conditions.

You’re probably used to the girls wandering around in rollers, but to truly grasp the best of the Northern like-it-or-lump-it attitude, The Tab has found you some examples of why we love a Liverpool laugh…

Don’t be a wool, let us know if you’ve got anything funnier…

    Dear lovely southern visitors to Liverpool. Glad you like it here, but please record yourself saying this phrase and listen to it on repeat until it’s like that Dexter’s Lab episode where it’s all you can say:

    “Birkenhead is not in Liverpool, Birkenhead is not in Liverpool, Birkenhead is not in Liverpool…”

    Ad infinitum.
