    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Looks like it. Don't ask me what the Shakespeare is doing there, it remains by far the grimmest pub around Victoria.

    Matthew's satirical take on beer and pubs is always worth a read, but this week's entry is particularly good: http://seeingthelizards.blogspot.co....-brief-43.html

    Pubs Full of Travelling Bloggers

    According to a survey carried out in February 2016 by Grizedale University, 90% of all transactions in pubs are carried out by people ticking off the pub as visited in order to write a blog entry afterwards.

    Landlord of The Wheatsheaf, Pontefract Barry Shortmeasure confirmed this to us "Yeah, it's been happening for a good 18 months now. Take the people in my pub now. One is staying at the local Travelodge on the cheap, and is wandering around with his camera looking for old codgers sat at tables to take pictures of. Those two over there? One's is walking eight miles between pubs and churches, and the other is going round the locals until the football game starts."

    "And her? She's visiting all the Wheatsheafs in the British Isles. I know that because she asked me where the next one was."

    "I don't have regular customers anymore," sorrowfully recounted Barry "But these Bloggers are worth more in publicity than any local pissheads sat in here all day."

    "Though I charge them based on their Google ranking, of course."
