Here cats have no tails, and goats can have up to 6 horns.

1. Fairy Bridge: a local superstition that you should always say hello to the fairies if you don't want them to make fun of you or make your life miserable; the phrase 𝐻𝑒𝑙𝑙𝑜,𝑓𝑎𝑖𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑠 is also recorded on the buses, and when they pass the bridge, they always play it. 

Background

Destination in brief

The Isle of Man is NOT and never was part of the United Kingdom; it is under the authority of the British Crown but has its parliament, legislation, etc.; if you want to work, you need a so-called Worker Migrant Visa, even if you arrive from the UK.

The Isle of Man has the longest continuously functioning parliament in the world.
