The only thing worse than neds are their girlfriends, known as ned burds. They dress in a similar fashion to male neds but with the addition of large gold pendants bearing their names (usually Anne-Marie or Kelly). Ned burds don't have Vauxhall Novas but instead hang about street corners (or the dole office) with buggies containing assorted children (mini neds) dressed in mini kappa track suits and mini baseball caps. Ned burd is normally about 15 or 16 years old and will have 3 or 4 children usually by the same number of fathers. Ned burds pastimes (apart from hanging round street corners) are smoking, drinking and child birth - usually all three are performed simultaneously.
