The 700 year old mystery surrounding the correct pronounciation of Marylebone has finally been solved.
"It is actually pronounced Marry Le Bone and derives from a 13th century liason between a Royal French Maid of Honour and an unruly pikey from Shepherd's Bush called Billy The Bone" declared expert Sir Roger Clunge.
"The raven haired froggie got rogered by dodgy QPR fan Billy The Bone beneath a full moon after feasting on jellied eels and foaming mead under the flyover of the Westway" explained the medieval linguist.
"After the virgin was put up the duff by Billy The Bone, she was advised to marry the priapic peasant to safeguard against inbreeding among the aristocratic ruling classes. But the wretched Bone turned out to be a 'wrongun' and was caught being noshed by some old slapper in East Acton" explained the eminent historian.
"Punishment was meted out to the depraved lowlife and Billy The Bone was hung, drawn and quartered in the taxi rank by Paddington Station. His enriched bone was fed to the pedigree hounds of the local gentry.
We firmly believe that was the very first tin of Marylebone Jelly dog food" added an excited Sir Roger Clunge.
