This is a question Pubs

Jeccy writes, "I've seen people having four-somes, fights involving spastics and genuine retarded people doing karaoke, all thanks to the invention of the common pub."

What's happened in your local then?

i was once dealing with
the letting of commercial premises to a bar. specifically, a lap dancing bar. the property was commercial use on the ground floor and two flats above. the landlord wanted to rush the deal through before the two flat owners found out and objected. so i came into work one morning to find all the draft licences and lease on my desk.

and saw immediately that the tenant bar was to be called DANCING BEAVERS. i stared at the documents, images of beavers slapping their flat tails around poles and grinning at me toothily filling my head. and worse. it was not exactly subtle. i could only imagine the reaction of the two flatowners above, coming home one night to find that in pink neon underneath their front door.

anyway, none of my business. i started to mark up the documents. then the phone rang. it was the tenant's solicitor.

"um, bit embarrassing this one," he said, "but i must have misheard my client when i was drafting the deeds. the - er - the name of the bar is actually DANCING DIVAS. please could you amend?"

i think it was better before...

I agree, "Dancing Beavers" is much better
think of all the taglines they missed: "If you've got wood, we've got the hairy aquatic rodents to deal with it..."

i'll stop there

Tag line writing....
....is maybe not a career you should pursue.

I would have denied that the 'phone conversation' ever took place, and proceeded with the documents as they were...

But then I'm a bit of a git like that.

*clicks 'til it hurts*
