Pub news.

smoked salmon

We had a giggle today.

Di,our beloved landlady was hosting a christening. She had my friend the "smoker" do her some smoked salmon. His eldest son sliced the salmon up, wafer thin, and left some tail ends with fresh lemon for Jez to try.

However, things took a turn for the worse when Di, ever the perfectionist when it comes to cleanliness thought they were waste bits and chucked them in the bin.dustbin for salmon

Jez was not best pleased and obviously told us. So we had a little fun. "Pint please Di, and a packet of crisps". "What flavour?" "Salmon"! "You can b*llocks"!

Poor Di! My heart bleeds.
BTW did you know why the original Trigger was thus named? Because he looks like a horse. I gained that tit-bit from the Horses's (Delboy's) mouth.

Pat - Well I never! I didn't know. When people in the pub call him "Trigger" he thinks it's a compliment. I wonder what he'll say when I tell him he looks like a horse, and what he will say to John G who gave him that nickname.

You need a fishmonger. Pubs don't usually re-tail salmon.

I got away with a mild rebuke, and the threat of being wheeled off down the road!

I asked Di for a packet of crisps and a pint of beer.

"What flavour?" she asked.

Long pause. Dare I or daren't I? Nope, I chickened out.

"Er....Smoky Bacon, please" I replied.

"It's a good thing you didn't say Smoky Salmon otherwise you would be wearing that pint!"
