If we can't go out, we can still do a crossword, just 3 Clues stumped me today

Which three?

 7 down, not many Virgins around here to ask, 3 down, just wouldn't connect, and 19 down, of course I used the auto fill-in but I always wait until I think I know the answer before pressing the button.

3 down was definitely one for the older folks.

What do you call a Virgin in Hastings? A tourist.

It seems you might have some knowledge of such things.

Or would that be a case of  "Virgin ... on the Ridiculous" ?

You don't  think I looked when I worked in theatre 8 at Conquestidor? Gynae?

Just finished my cider and on my way back to the bar, sidestepping the Toronto cut-outs you'd placed around us southerners, noticed that there small stage, with a mic, in the corner. So I'm going to entertain you northern folk with a bit of poetry recital. 

Hope you understood that. 😉

Poetry you say?

 

Now we've entertained the northerners, I suppose we'd better get back to "our corner" behind the Toronto cut-outs. 

 

PS Well done for attempting their language 😉

Well, as you "down there" have started the show, we in the North are now going to bring on stage a group of people to show some local traditional entertainment from up here ....

We bring you the Wigan version of "The Full Monty" !!!

No missus there's no need to get your cameras out ... no clothes are being removed !

We have several Wiganers here to see how many pies they can eat in 24 hours ... and all for charity.

Why is it called "The Wigan Full Monty" ?   Well, it's a pie-athon !!!

To encourage social distancing the pub has bought some new glasses for people to drink out of ....

1687432036_yardale.jpg.5c2bec866fb70151a32913c87d8b0ae0.jpg


That takes me back to my 21st birthday back in 1984.  The DJ in the pub asked if anyone wanted to try the yard of ale.  People wrote their name down on a sheet of paper and a name was drawn out ... mine.  Apparently nearly everyone had written my name down.  
So I was asked to take my T shirt off and stand on a chair next to the DJ.  Wobbling on the chair I was given the yard of ale full of Yorkshire Bitter.  I started drinking it and got down to the ball.  Then all hell broke loose.  The beer sloshed down the tube and most went up my nose.  I turned to my left and vomited the beer plus the 5 or 6 pints I already drank all over the DJ and his tape deck.  The regulars cheered, I fell off the stool and DJ went mental and wanted to chin me.

I went to the bogs and washed myself.  My mates then bought me a PINT of Bacardi and coke which I supped.  I remembered staggering out before closing time.  My next memory is one mate shaking me and saying ‘you need to get up’.  I thought why is my mate in my bedroom.  An even more frightening thought was ‘Bloody hell is he in bed with me!!!!’.  
 

When I sat up I found I was in the middle of the main road next to the pub.  I had either passed out or just laid down to go to sleep.  The reason I hadn’t been run over is that it had been snowing so drivers could easily see me laid down and many cars had carefully driven around me.  Oh, we all a good laugh about that.

Well don't think you're allowed back in this pub if you're going to behave like that ... that was so insensitive of you in making drivers have to swerve quickly in the snow !  Next time lie down somewhere where they can't see you ! 😉

Drinking a yard of ale is like having a lady being in a passionate moment with you ..... handling the long bit is fine (and often needs both hands) but you've got to be aware of the moment when everything might come quickly out of it from the ball at the end.

Why are there no packets of Cheese, Pickles and Biscuits behind the bar, what sort of a pub is this?
