Loud jumpers — 11 Comments

  1. "We are officially classed as a lower order than the scum off the street, the lowest of the low life and the wearers of festive sweaters"  First bit of sense out of you in ages GD.  🙂

    Of course you're classed as lower than wearers of festive sweaters.
    I'll be svelte and stylish in my flashing Christmas jumper and antler headband.. A cigarette won't do that much for you.

    • All I can say is that the manufacturers of festive sweaters saw you coming!

      [and my pipe lasts me all year]

  2. What would they do with smoking multi racial suicide bombers in or out of festive sweaters?

    It' such a conundrum.

    • And of course the problem would be exacerbated no end if they were wearing festive sweaters proclaiming their right to gay marriage.

  3. jammies and 12 different beers in the fridge so much easier and getting home isn't a problem its 7 foot walk to the bedroom


  4. Ah! Good old time. When I was in school in the early 70's we use to call them "pub rally". Teams of 4, We each had to drink 2 draft glasses per pub before reaching the party site where the winning team would be announce. The prize, free beer for the party. No funny sweaters, it was during winter usually at minus 20 celsius.

    • How was the winner decided?  The first home?  The last to pass out?  An interesting game but I can't play it here in the village – only two pubs and I won't go into the other one [too flash and modern and they don't allow smoking].

  5. Many years ago, whilst a postgrad student at Aberystwyth Uni, I came across many a pub crawl. Partly this is because we were students, and partly because with the sea to one side, the Green Desert to the other and the Gogs north of us and the unmentionables to the south, there wasn't too much to do in Aber save get drunk.

    The pub crawl associated with the Welsh-speaking Pantycelyn hall of residence sticks in my mind. A pint to start, and a pint to finish, with a half in each pub in between the start and end, this being thirty six pubs in all. Many embarked on this trek, few ever finished it.

    • Welcome Dr Dan!  Aberystwyth sounds a lot like my village except for having the sea to one side. 

      Quick maths – 34 pubs [minus the two for start and finish] = 17 pints.  Add in the start and finish pints that's a total of 19.  That sounds like one hell of a challenge?  The ones who didn't finish – did you drag them home or bury them on the spot?
