The Merlin’s a World Cup Wizard
They think it’s all over…it is now. Some blog post opportunities are too good to miss. Especially when it comes to toilet humour.
Male toilets can get into a bit of a mess and when a bar’s patrons have prostrates even more enlarged than their egos, a waterlogged floor is often the final score. My local pub (bar) the Merlin here in the UK has enlisted a novel solution to solving the problem and if it catches on then with football’s World Cup just weeks away, punters all over the world will be queuing up to burst the back of the net.
With the World Cup starting on June 11th regulars at the Merlin public house in my home town of Swindon have been getting in some shooting practise of their own. Though only the male clientele.
The hard men of football’s World Cup wouldn’t like going head to head with some of the tackles being splashed about in the Merlin gentleman’s toilet. The ”ooh” and ”aah’s” bouncing off the toilette walls might make you wonder if the famous ”Ooh aah Cantona” football chant had been chosen by FIFA as their South Africa 2010 World Cup theme tune. To my great relief and deflated bladder I found out it wasn’t….”ooh…aah, that feels better.”
The Merlin’s best dribblers are being encouraged to shoot on sight after the bar manager made a tactical switch and placed goals complete with nets into the urinals. If you’re the type of guy who hits the bar regular then this wizard idea from the Merlin manager should keep you on the straight and narrow. Unfortunately it couldn’t keep someone on life’s honest path.
Originally each of the urinal bowls were fitted with a goal and a small football. The idea being you steered or shot the ball into the net. Somebody has stolen the footballs. A very sad case of someone taking the piss. If caught committing a crime such as this, the culprit would typically be shown the red card and barred from the Merlin’s hallowed turf. Perhaps a soggy urine coloured yellow card waved in their face would be more appropriate this time.
Please can we have our footballs back.
Sorry about this being a non Thai related post but I thought I’d give you a little bit of England. And it has got a kind of Songkran theme to it.
