Big mouths come from Birmingham

I like the Metro (freebie paper you get in London) as you get weird and wacky articles. Where do they get them from? Anyway, the latest piece of intrepid and analytical journalism concerns the fact that people from the West Midlands have the biggest……mouths!

The average gob of a Brummie is 20.9cm in circumference and Mancunians have the smallest gob at 18.5cm (Noel Gallagher will be miffed). Coming from the West Midlands (land of the irritating accent) myself I was half tempted to measure my own mouth with a ruler but thought this too tragic.

Now where this rigorous scientific investigation took place isn’t recorded but hey, I believe it. Who needs science when you have Metro?
