On yer Loaf of Bread, you've got your Barnet Fair (or maybe a Syrup of Figs). On yer Boat Race, you have yer Mince Pies, King Lears and I Suppose. In yer North and South you've got yer Hampstead Heath. Yer Loaf sits on yer Gregory Peck, which sits on yer Noddy Holder. If you're a woman you might have Bristol Cities (or Thrupenny Bits) on yer Bristol and West.

We've all got a pair of Chalk Farms poking out with a pair of German Bands at the end. In yer Derby Kelly lives yer Newington Butts. Don't eat too much in case yer Fish and Chips start expanding.
