My lad was talking  to a linguistics prof last month and mentioned I said "oo", so book, look, cook and not buck, luck, cuck. Prof asked if I was from Bolton and said one of his areas of study was regional dialects and that the oo would be gone forever in the very near future.

Sayings wise "tha's more bant in a sore eye" was the first that jumped into my head, owd fella at work used to say it every dinnertime when he saw what lads were eating.
