Hilarious replies to tourist’s Scarborough stink complaint

Perhaps this daytripper was hoping for a few sympathetic replies when he complained about the smell of cannabis on Scarborough ‘s seafront. Truck driver Sam Gethine Gochalah complained: “Visited Scarborough yesterday, and the stench on the seafront was appalling. Bearing in mind it’s supposed to be a family area, the smell of dope was disgusting.”

Alas, sympathy was not what the visitor from Middlesbrough received when he posted his quibble on Facebook group Scarborough Moan. Georgia Wood replied: “Despite the aroma not being to your liking did it affect you or appear to affect anyone else in any other way shape or form at all?” To get the latest email updates from Yorkshire Live, click here .

Nick Dudley responded flippantly: “So, did you turn on your heel, flounce off into the sunset and vow to never return?” And Andrew Webster replied facetiously: “Could smell it too! Was proper jealous.”

Naomi Pearson responded: “Anyway, so what if people were using a plant for medicinal purposes? They’ve been doing the same for thousands of years.” Sean Pinder joked: “Maybe should have some yourself to lighten up a bit.”

And Jonny Giles replied: “The smell of Middlesborough is disgusting, Karen.”

‘Karen’ has become a pejorative term for a person (usually female) who is considered entitled or unreasonably demanding.
