However if you were to have Googled Skellow over the weekend, you would have been greeted with a picture of naked man "reasonably excited" with nothing but a towel covering his manhood.

That's what Twitter type David Firth found, and so screengrabbing it for lols, wrote: "Don’t think the people of Skellow, South Yorkshire would be happy with how Google pictures them."
