That man deserves a DB.


So like some smart* chick has been running round some town claiming to be Tana Umaga's sister and duping a taxi company into free rides. U can find the story on the NZ Herald site and a cool picture of a python with eyes bigger than his head. I'd link but it's a hassle apparently...

 

Ne ways – this impersonation reminded me of a feeble I attempted about 3 or 4  years ago. JJ Murphy's bar had recently opened in Cuba Street. The usual and then recent Wellington immigrants/suspects and  I were there, lagered up, aled and ginned up, as usual. Probably barred up as well but that's another story.

 

So iizatdabar about to order a drink and I spy with my lil eye a certain tasty beverage beginning with the letter S.

 

Says I "A steiny thanks, mate"

 

The Good Barkeep "Sorry mate, we don't sell that here, JJ Murphy's is a DB bar we cannot sell Steinlager or Lion Products by contract. How about a Celtic Red?"

 

Says I "Yes yous all do – their there" and I points at 'em.

 

GB "Oh those are the owner's….."

 

SI "Well I'm the owner's son!"

 

GB "Yeah? What's your name then?"

 

SI "Murphy!"

 

Slightly bemused GB "Piss off mate!!!!"

 

SI "I'll have a Celtic Red, then thanks"

 

And that's the story. I guess you had to be there.

*till she got caught.
