Pensioner’s back yard voted Rear of The Year 2009

The prestigious title of Rear of The Year for 2009 has been awarded to the back yard of former slate miner’s cottage in South Wales.

‘I was thrilled when I heard the news,’ said Mrs. Edie Shrimpton, 84, of 12 Audley Terrace, Cwmbran, ‘I’ve always tried to keep my back yard clean and tidy, even though I had an indoor privy installed in the ’70s and only go out there to hang my washing up.’

Rear of the Year was first awarded to Barbara Windsor in 1976, with other recipients including Felicity Kendal, Rachel Stevens and the storage depot of Blakedown Heating Systems, Huddersfield. The first male to win the title was Michael Barrymore. 

Bookies favourite, glamour model Katie Price, famously dropped out of this year’s competition amid fears of an avalanche of poorly-executed jokes regarding her back passage from half-rate comedy writers struggling for suitable material.
