A bit comical for sure, but I didn't know about the fact they were supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital with this, so you can't knock that.

And rightly so... you can't expect to fetch up on Tyneside and drink poofter juice.

Not around here it isn't! You can get a jar of that flat, warm real-ale stuff at a specialist pub down the road but I've always been suspicious of anything made primarily of soil, straw and horse sh*t.

I beg your pardon. I forgot that lager comes in two different strengths.

That'll be wife-beater then. ;)

Funnily enough I was walking to the local last night when, as I neared the door of a pub I need to pass to get to my preferred haunt, the doors flew open and two hooligans tumbled out and started beating seven bells out of one another on the pavement. I had to stop or step over them and not wanting to collect a stray fist in the gonads I stopped and said, 'excuse me please'. They halted their battle while I walked around them then, as soon as I was out of range, they started punching the crap out of each other again. I had a few pints of what they'd been drinking.
