A pint of Doom Bar, Pork scratchings and I'm next on the Pool Table. Just outed a fag so bring it.

Haha brilliant!
And for US members who may not know, a fag in the UK is a cigarette


But Mr Cymru, have you ranted about the end of the world from tabloid newspaper headlines? Only old Stan in the corner is allowed to do that, he spends a load of money and has drunk here for years, everyone else is expected to be a bit upbeat choosing decent songs on the jukebox.

When John turns the TV up for BBC news headlines we let him off, it's his pub, but afterwards it's back to chilling ourselves out until it all blows over!

Oh thanks Cornish I do love a Doom Bar, will pass on the pickled egg and pork scratchings though. Do you think Dave would let me nip across and grab a kebab if i promise to eat it outside



edit to add:
Is remembering lock ins where we all ordered in curry and kebabs and smoked inside

Dave's cool with eating it inside so long as you're buying beer!
...and lock-ins still exist in these parts, I love when the blinds go down and the ashtrays come out on the bar.


EDIT
Trump and Putin should get drunk together in a lock-in, settle their problems over a game of pool, then rant about Daily Mail headlines.

If you get a heckling chance ask some full on leading questions about Cold War II then see how he responds...and report back to The Winchester so regulars can ponder and argue with John when he turns the BBC news bulletin up on the TV...

TV volume is up at the Winchester again, Britain obviously went for it now, but dodgy Frank is still running his book on bets for who fired first...his odds on UK are down to 3 to 2.

Gutted the OP is probably correct, only brown people are being killed in this current tit for tat...#ing tragedy, jukebox distraction needed...

Haha good choice!




I'm up for a bottle or two of this and does any one want a pork scratchin'.
also I'm next up on the pool table (puts 50p down) if anyone wants a game? Haven't played in years so it will be a quick game.
Watch Putin practice judo, this should give you a chuckle, his uke (partner) litteraly falls over on his own!!

Haha good to see you fella, been quiet here today
Only old Pete with the missing eye and me here earlier, he was saying he reckons the missile strikes have to happen every now and then or no countries will buy them. Business is all. Stan in the corner was just ranting usual daily mail headlines lol

Anyway, I'll rack them up, coin to decide break, pick a track for the jukebox while you're up

Top tune mate!!!
Haha, especially in these WWIII doom porn times if we believed everything we see on t'internet, this is the tune for it!

Hopefully a few more will pop in, have some war chat, chill out over a pint and stick a tune on.
...oh, you got two shots, I hit your red first

EDIT
[Shouts] Oh a Thatchers please mate

Glad ya like the tune!
Thought it was appropriate for the chat and all the doom porn at the mo'!!
The view's better in here any way, got a pint in hand, pork scratchings and some good ATS company, don't think we need much else!
Do they still serve toasted sandwiches??

Found the original vinyl on the old jukebox


a reply to: Kurokage
Agreed, doom porn is better at the pub, less hysteria lol
...Toasties are not on now but John is doing his new 'Putin Pies' though, nice, £2 a pop.

Time for the Pub Quiz then.
Get a round in and some KP Nuts (the most revealing bag for our mature UK Drinking Chums)
Then answer these questions...

www.mirror.co.uk...

P.s. The Winchester is on the head to list, naturally


EDIT: looks more like Big D than KP.

goo.gl...

Haha, I did the end of the world pub quiz, I got this...


You'd survive a couple of years, but you'd eventually be killed by a tribe of cannibals



I answered The Winchester for the go to place to let it blow over of course!

...it all seems to have calmed down now though, Putin didn't strike back, The Don has his high ground, everyone seems happy...except Syrians of course.

Now, couple of Sambuca's and 50p on the pool table ready for a game

I did the quiz too!!



You have definitely got what it takes to survive a global disaster. You're pragmatic and practical, and you've got great common sense. You'll be fine.


Looks like I'll be meeting you lot down the Winchester!!

Haha you did better than me in the WW3 quiz!
I am a survivor though so see you at The Winchester, be a good laugh holding out there...you should try the landlord's new "Putin Pies" only two quid...haven't asked him what meat it is...nobody has...

Anyway time to find an appropriate tune or two on the jukebox, sorry folk, going random and emotional with these two haha, put your own £1 in if you want different beats...




EDIT
"Zombie" sums up to me plenty of UK history with civil strife, and the second track always makes me think of two people in love between barricades when other people are doing the fighting, not them.
...now don't worry, I'm off home, it's Sunday so hanging around the pub ain't a wise move

Sunday is the best day. As an ex Manager told me back in the day, "Better to get paid to recover than waste a weekend."
Wise words until a monster session after a project completed

Haha! Yes I get that!
Been quiet tonight though, even Stan in the corner hasn't been ranting Sunday Mail headlines although he's reading it!
Storm in a teacup, I'm putting one last track on the jukebox, a distraction from WW3, I was in this crowd...
