WTS – What the Surrey #30: Defending Surrey on CBC

Comments 10 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I was contacted earlier this week by the CBC, wanting to do a story about my blog but looking for some unique angles. Turns out the most prominent discussion on my blog at the moment is about the Dana Carvey Surrey Girl Joke so they wanted to talk about that, and I was more than willing.

    Strong work. If you pause the video with, like, two seconds left, the guy next to Gloria looks to be quietly reminiscing about all the Surrey girl action he’s gotten over the years.

    […] Miss 604 posted about Dana Carvey, and his comments on the Jay Leno show.  Specifically, his Surrey Girl joke.  Anywho…Miss 604 was asked for an interview by CBC (seemingly to do an interview about her blog, and it’s growing strength in the community.  It turns out, they wanted to talk about the Surrey Girl joke, and the response people had to it – many negative ones – about Surrey.  Check it out here.

    I’m a 32 year old female & I grew up in the Guildford area. Moved to the ‘Peg when I was 15 and even THEY had heard of Surrey girl jokes. Not a good way for a goodlooking girl to get her start in a new school that’s for sure. Screw the stupid comments about Surrey.
