My family is from Seaford, East Sussex and my Mum always taught us that the 1st of May is pinch bum day. So get pinching!

That's interesting - there does seem to be some connection with Sussex. My father came from Sussex, though I never heard hi mention it - but I suspect he would have regarded it as too undignified!

If anyone ever tries to pinch my bum on ANY day!  LOOKOUT - I'll take them to court and have them charged with sexual harassment!   

Mmm ... Could be quite a profitable exercise  ;D ;D
